Today is the day - my little girl is one year old. It's hard to believe that she was a little 7 pound 4 ounce bundle only 365 days ago. Time certainly flies by when you are blissfully happy.
Unfortunately, we are not having a great birthday. Luci is still sick. I am really happy that I postponed the party, because there is no way that I would have been able to get ready for it. The house is in disarray due to her illness with medicine, bottles, wipes, etc everywhere.
Anyway this past month was just as I knew it would be - crazy! We had a wedding, Easter, and tons of birthdays. She was an angel through all of it, which probably explains the illness.
We have been practicing singing "Happy Birthday" to her and have taught her to blow when the song ends. My mom was sweet enough to go out and get a little smash cake for her so that the 3 of us could have a mini-birthday party tonight.
Other new developments - she loves the song "Baa-baa Black Sheep," and when she hears it she repeats "ba-ba-ba-ba" over and over again. We have also taught her some body parts. If you ask her where her nose it, she will point to yours. And we taught her "earmuffs," and when we say it - she sometimes misses her ears and just place her hands on her head just above her ears. It's so adorable.
We hope to get better soon so that we can have a great party next weekend!
Here are pictures from the last month:
