Birthday Girl!!

Today is my little Skylar-girl's first birthday! It is hard to believe that she is already a year old! It makes us sad and excited at the same time. I'm sure I will feel this way on many occasions to come...her first day of Kindergarten, her first date, her graduation and wedding day, etc. It is just part of being a parent, I guess. Here are a few of her stats so far:

-She weighs just about 20 pounds and is 28" tall
-She has two bottom teeth
-She can stand on her own for a few seconds at a time
-She crawls
-She cruises around the furniture
-She walks if you hold her hands
-She can say a few words: Baby, Kitty, Hiiii!, Bye, Dad, Mom, Dog, Uh-Oh
-She dances to any, and I mean any, rhythm or music that she hears
-She loves our cat Fred
-She points at everything
-She can drink from a glass and thru a straw
-She loves her blankies, it doesn't matter which one as long as it is a flannel recieving blanket!
-She finally will sleep all night long...not every night but she can do it!
-She still loves her bathtime! She will stay in there for hours if we would let her!

All in all, she is such a happy baby and we can't even imagine our lives without her! This past year has been so much fun and quite an experience as any first time parent knows! We are excited to see what the years to come have in store for us! We love you Skylar! Happy first birthday!
