1 year stats

Addison had her 1 year well baby check this week...Monday, June 8th.

I forgot my camera so I'm a little bummed about that.

Here are her stats...

weight: 17lbs 13oz - 5%tile - she is finally back on the chart. she's been below it for most of her little life.

length: 29 inches - 45%tile

head: 45.3 - 55%tile


she's doing great. she will have to wait a little while before we can turn her car seat around but that's OK...she doesn't know what she's missing! here are a few things she we are noticing about her lately...

*she is hilarious...real sense of humor this girl.
*loves to clap
*can say mama, dada, bye bye, hello - holds something up to her ear when she does this like she is on the phone...can you tell what mama is teaching by example! :)
*loves her brothers and the attention they shower on her
*is taking steps
*cruising and crawling are her main ways of getting where she needs to go
*still loves sucking those two middle fingers
*loves sleeping with her blanket, dolly, and bunny - she rubs her bunny's ears and it is SO cute
*giggles when i lay her down to sleep...she LOVES her bed!
*LOVES, LOVES, LOVES to eat. with as little as she is, you would be AMAZED at how much this girl can put in that little body
*when i say she is little, compact is almost a better description. she is muscular and petite. she isn't scrawny or "skinny" but she doesn't have those baby rolls that we all love so much.
*she loves the dog...squeals in delight
*she's a singer...if i have music on in the car she just sings and know i LOVE that
*separation anxiety is definitely in full swing...she's fine after a few minutes but leaving her always gets a good fit out of her.
*we're down to 3 feedings. the weaning process has been more difficult with her and i'm afraid it may continue to be for a little bit.
*she's drinking from a sippy cup
*signing more and working on please
*taking 2 naps a day and sleeping 11-12 hours a night
*LOVES people and smiles at everyone
*entertains herself better than the boys ever did. wondering if this is a 3rd child thing or just her temperament. we'll take it either way!
*always putting things in her mouth and freaking mommy out! if you say, "Addison, what is in your mouth?" she will immediately take it out, hand it to you and smile. what a little stinker! :)
*she loves the pool and looks awfully cute in her swimsuits!

way to go addison - back on the charts! must have been Nanny's birthday cake. keep it coming, i'd say! :)

Sounds perfect. Some of her descriptions remind me of Anna - of course being little, but Anna was like that with putting things in her mouth. Anna also has a favorite bunny and loves her bed. Hope these 2 can grow up to be great friends. She is such a cutie!

Oh I just LOVE the picture! What a baby doll! And I'm so proud because SHE IS MY NIECE!!!

We can't wait to spend time with y'all again in August! I have a feeling we're gonna be really busy chasing these girls around. And hey one day when Addison's a grown woman she won't mind people saying she used to be "tiny".

Oh what a doll baby! Yes, she will see the day that she will wish she was tiny....Of course that is if she takes after her Mimi.....At one time in my life, I would have never thought I would have been this big.....Ha! But in her Mimi's eyes, she is PERFECT! Beautiful beyond measure.....Do I sound like a Proud Mimi!
