1st Birthday ... the REAL day

My sweet angel turned ONE today! It's hard to believe that one year ago I was 16 hours into labor waiting for her arrival. Time goes by way too fast :( We are really lucky to have such a sweetheart. (It also makes me reflect on how I haven't slept all night in a year up until a month ago ... and wonder how many diapers I've changed . . . LOL) Maddy went for her 1 year check-up at the doctor's office and is doing great overall :) Madison weighs 24. 6 pounds and is 31" long. She's in the 90 - 95 % in all areas. We are going to be working on transitioning to whole organic milk (finally!) and eventually to a sippy cup. Also, we are working on eating more and more table food rather than baby food. Our doctor is concerned that she may need some help on developing some more upper arm strength, as she is not crawling or pulling up on objects (like her crib or the couch). Hopefully the specialist we were referred to will give us some pointers on what exercises and activities to work on with her. On the other hand ... she is WAY more interested in walking. Maddy insist on doing laps around the house with us behind her holding her fingers while she walks... as she laughs! She looks as if she could take off any day now! Mommy and daddy are getting ready for her big birthday party on Saturday with family . . . more pics to come . . .

Birthday morning .... getting ready for my big day!
Once again people . . . I DO NOT like my hands dirty!
Me and my Cinderella Princess cake :)

Ready to walk . . . this is what we do over and over and over these days, lap after lap!
Oh boy - gifts .... it's all about the tissue paper!

I just love my new gifts!

. . . and new pajamas . . .

My little sweetie

This is the crawling position . . . yet I'm not going anywhere...

There were even presents on the front porch from Auntie Krystal & Cousin Tristan when we got home. We had just enough energy to open one more and saved the rest for Saturday!

I like this birthday cake ... my fingers don't get sticky and messy!!!
