Tomorrow is her birthday party, the theme reflects her personality: She's a peach! What's the point of having a theme if you're not gonna over do it? I can't wait to share all our peach-tastic ideas/foods/decor with you! I'll get to that NEXT week... I'm gonna be uber busy this weekend with partyin' and eating and snuggling my one-year-old. So I will be unplugged all weekend :)
Ready for her monthly picture? Here she is... God, she's beautiful (not that we place much importance on that, but how did this perfect creature come from me? Oh wait, check out the upper right pic...now I see it :)
|Her birthday dress is from a talented Etsy seamstress named...Heidi! It was meant to be! More about the party dress(es) in the birthday post.|
As of THIS WEEK, Heidi is a walker! She gets this extremely proud look on her face each time she takes a few steps. The best part is that when I sit on the floor (for frequent story times), she walks over to me, stands beside me, and lays her head on my shoulder!
At 12 months, she still sucks those 2 fingers to self-comfort (and if she's lucky, pinches my neck while falling asleep. urgh! if I'm lucky, my mom is holding her 'cause Heidi also enjoys pinching her!), lights up when given the slightest bit of attention, giggles with her sister...esp when I'm not supervising, loves to snuggle (with her head in the crook of my left arm. does NOT like it if I flip her to the other side), thinks peek-a-boo is HILARIOUS and will sit with a blanket over her head until I notice, prefers playing IN the toy baskets (she is sitting in the music basket as I write this. drums are scattered all over the floor as she sits in the basket and blows a train whistle... a skill her older sister has yet to master!) and she has an even 4 teeth on both the top and bottom.
Here's a recap of how she evolved from ALIEN to BABE:
