What a difference a year makes! This little girl has brought so much joy, love, laughter, frustration, worry, and happiness to our life. She is feisty, spunky, opinionated, loving, and has so much personality. We sure love our little Laura bug and feel so blessed that she joined our family. I can't wait to see all the great things she will do in and with her life. Love her to pieces!
Left: Laura the day she was born.
Right: One year old!
Laura went in for her 12 month check-up today. The results...
Weight: 21 lbs 6 oz = 60%
Height: 30.5" = 90%
Head: 18.5" = 90%
Average weight, tall, and super smart. :) She is growing and developing perfectly which makes me one happy momma.
We kept Laura's birthday pretty low key and celebrated with both sets of Grandparents (at Chad's parent's house and with my parents via Skype). Laura got spoiled and loved on all day and Cayden was just as happy about Laura's presents as she was.
Loves her dolly stroller! Cayden plays with it just as much as Laura does (if not more).
Unwrapping her car and ball (picked out by Cayden).
Laura LOVES this ball and chases it all over the house.
The car is also a favorite. It has resulted in a few fights between the kids. Cayden either pulls Laura out to get in himself or Laura wants to get in when Cayden is playing with it. :)
If I had to pick Laura's favorite present it would have to be her "pretties" (i.e. jewelry). She carries them around all day every day and gets really upset/tells you off if you try to make her put them down to go somewhere.
For Laura's birthday cake I made ice cream cone cupcakes! They were so dang cute! Some had sparkly pink frosting and others had sparkly purple frosting.
Singing 'Happy Birthday!'
(Unlike Cayden, Laura has no problem getting dirty.)
Love this face.
"That was good stuff Mom!"
