a place for chronicling the things i never want to forget.
Adelaide Iris: Age 1
Shortly after she turned 11 months, she took off walking and now she’s a full fledged runner! She is keeping me Very busy as she is into EVERYTHING! Following in her daddy’s footsteps, she is ever so inquisitive and points at everything and says ‘dis?’ (Brad’s first word was a complete sentence he loves to point out…’wassat?’ (what’s that?))…her little pointer finger is just the cutest pointing at everything and asking what it is.She likes to sit and look through books, but rarely has the time for me to hold her and read to her. I think she’s grown a foot in the past month too! I cannot believe how tall she is! Her hair has gotten so blond and she has the nicest little tan frombeing outside with zia every day this summer. She started doing this thing to let me know she’s hungry – I think she picked it up at Zia’s house – but she’ll suck in her cheeks and make her lips smack together to let you know she’s hungry. It’s ridiculous and totally adorable. At her year appointment she is now 31.5” tall and 24.6lbs. She finally is on the charts for weight, but still off the charts for height. She now says 'more', 'cheese' and 'brr'. She learned the sign language for cheese & more, but gets them a little mixed up and then just starts clapping. One of her 1 year molars sprouted which explains the frequent night waking these past few weeks (after she was finally back to sleeping through the night! - not fun for either of us). She was dedicated at church this month and the following weekend we had her birthday party. Although she wasn't all too interested in opening the gifts (all of her cousins were a great help though!), she loves playing with all her new toys! She has the sweetest little personality and I pray that I always take the time to be patient with her and that time won’t go too quickly. I cannot believe how fast this first year of her life went and could never imagine my life without her.
not too happy about her 1 year photoshoot
playing peekaboo with nannie - got a little confused between her eyes & ears
