I can't believe my little girl turns 1 on Sunday. It really doesn't seem like we have been through all the holidays, Easter, the Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's Day and all the others. It doesn't seem like she's old enough to be eating solid foods and getting rid of her bottle. I can't believe she is in 18 month clothing. I can't believe we had to change out her car seat already. Wow her first year went fast and eerily easy.
She isn't walking yet, but she is close. She has 6 teeth now and loves picking up her food to eat it. She just learned to throw her hands in the air and say, "Yay." She is not fond of baths and hates getting her diaper changed. She won't leave headbands on and almost has enough hair to clip a bow in it. She hates being in layers, but hates being cold even more.
She is full of personality. She thinks her brother is the greatest thing since sliced bread. She is not a cuddler. She loves to clutch at your shirt when she's falling asleep. She does not lay on your shoulder. She must be cradled if you want her to go to sleep. She hates being woken up because it scares her. When she gets up in the morning, she often bounces, talks, and giggles until you pick her up. When you pick her up, she grabs on to your shoulder and turns her head away from you. She is ready to go discover the world.
Happy Birthday Lilyanne! You have been so much fun this year. We look forward to discovering God is making you to be.
