Happy 1st Birthday Avery (part 1)

Today my sweet baby girl turned one year old.  I can't believe it.  This year has gone by so fast.  Avery has changed so much and is just so full of personality.  She is stubborn and inquisitive like Eric.  She is social and full of smiles like me.  She is smart and full of curiosity.  She is sweet and sassy.  It is amazing how much of a difference a year makes.  I feel like we just brought her home from the hospital, and here we are playing with big girl toys and eating cupcakes!  I couldn't have more love in my heart for anyone else.  We are so blessed to have such a wonderful and healthy child.  Happy 1st Birthday Avery Blake!
Here are some 12 month stats (we take her in to see the pediatrician tomorrow for shots, so we'll get an accurate weight and height then): Avery eats EVERYTHING and loves trying new foods.  She has quite the appetite!  She is still drinking formula out of bottles, but has had some whole milk mixed in at times.  We are slowly going to transition her to whole milk.  She can drink water out of her sippy cup.  She still loves her pacifiers.  She has good nap days and bad nap days, but always sleeps through the night.  She always has her lovey bear to sleep with.  She is a crawling machine.  She can stand up like a pro with the help of furniture, and has just started to randomly stand on her own!  She loves playing with all of her toys and books.  She enjoys watching the Disney Channel cartoons and Disney movies.  She loves playing with her little friends when we have play dates or shopping/lunch dates.  She says mama and dada, but not directed at us yet.  She knows her name.  She is wearing all 18 month clothes.  She wears a size 4 toddler shoe.  She doesn't like having headbands and bows in her hair anymore (I hope that is just a phase!).  She is in a size 4 diaper.  She enjoys being outside, crawling in the grass, going for walks in the stroller, and swinging on swings at the park.  She loves her big brown dog and always touches him.  She always tries to grab my cell phone and laptop.  She loves shoes.

Happy 1st Birthday Avery Blake!!!
