Happy, Happy birthday! You are a one year old today and Mommy, Daddy, and Evan couldn't be happier. You have blessed our lives for ONE WHOLE year. You may be small, but the amount of joy and happiness you bring us is not. What would we do without your sweet giggle and beautiful smile? Life certainly wouldn't be the same. We pray and wish that you have a life full of joy, happiness, and success, prosperity and love of friends! God bless you, Margaret. Have a very happy birthday!!!
Mommy, Daddy, and Evan
Margaret's unofficial stats!
Diapers: Still in size 3. I think we are ready to move on up, but we have a few boxes from costco that we will use. Plus she is a little lady, so it isn't like she is busting at the seams.
Clothes: 12 months! Sadly, she can still fit into some 9 month clothes. This dress in her birthday pictures is a 9 month bishop. She has a tech outfit that is a 6 month onesie that she can squeeze into. She is definitely not a big girl. I can't wait to go get her stats next week.
Food: Still loves her fruit and vegetables. She prefers them over everything. Bananas are her favorite. She eats an entire banana every morning. She also loves organic O's (honey nut cheerio type food) and blueberries. For lunch, she LOVES to much on cooked carrots, peas, and green beans. It is her favorite lunch!
Speech: Margaret rattles on and on and on. I wish I knew half of what she was saying. Grammy was over here the other day and thinks she is speaking Czech. Honestly, that is what it sounds like. Ha! I need to record it because it is great!
Mobility: She can easily go from a sitting to standing position. She can take more than 6-7 steps, but just wants to crawl. Which is totally fine by me. She loves to crawl because I think it is faster to keep up with her brother.
Sleeping: Sleeping through the night!!! She goes to sleep around 6 and wakes up around 7am. The naps are getting a little weird because she is in the phase where she doesn't really want to take two naps, but our schedule doesn't really allow for one long nap. This is when two gets tricky. Margaret would love to nap from 12-3, but, on tuesday/thursday we have to pick up brother at 2:30. It just isn't possible. We will get it figured it, but it will be interesting to find what works.
