She'll run over anything in her way! You better watch out!

Crazy kid!

Our little girl does the craziest things! She loves hanging upside down. Since she can't hang upside down by herself, she does this instead...

What a difference a year makes!

Just thought I would post a couple pictures of Little Miss last year at Easter. Also...we went to the doctor this afternoon. We've been given the go-ahead to switch Jillian to milk. This is good given that at our last appointment Dr. McAtee has said we might have to keep her on formula for a while past her first birthday. We've already given her milk with her dinner and she LOVED it! Here's her stats for 1 year:

Weight: 18 lbs. 10oz. - 9th percentile
Height: 27 3/4 inches - 9th percentile

Still just a little bitty thing!

Easter 2010

While this wasn't Jillian's first Easter, it is the first time the Easter bunny visited our house.
Jillian's Easter basket after the Easter Bunny visited last night.

She had lots of fun checking out all the goodies Easter morning...

This afternoon we had our family over for Easter lunch. Jillian had to get all dressed up for the occasion in her Easter dress. Too bad I can't keep shoes on her...

Happy Easter!!

1 year old...Happy Birthday Jillian!

Today is Jillian's 1st birthday. It's hard to believe that 1 year ago today this little angel came into our world...and now we have this little ball of personality...

What is she up to??

  • She took two steps earlier this week, but since then has shown no interest in walking. She will push her baby doll stroller around and is still cruising, but whenever we try to get her to stand up and walk to one of us she plops right down or arches her back so she doesn't have to stand.
  • She tried ice cream for the first time at her birthday party and LOVED it. She has definitely gotten a larger appetite recently. We are very interested to see what the scale will say on Monday for her 1 year check-up.
  • She still sleeps for about 12-13 hours a night and then takes 2 naps during the day each about 1 hour each...give or take a little
  • She points at EVERYTHING and says "dat," like she's asking "what's that?" We tell her what it is then she moves on to the next thing. She's so curious!
  • She loves being outside for anything!
  • She loves other kids...especially older kids. She'll just watch them in awe.
  • Her third tooth (her first on the top) finally poked through. I've felt it for a while, but now you can finally see it.
It's hard to put into words what the past year has been like...while she wasn't the easiest baby (can't imagine where she gets her difficult personality from???) she has brought so much joy to our lives. Jillian has been and continues to be the most wonderful gift to Frank and I. We can't imagine how we ever lived without her! Happy Birthday Jilly Bean! We are so happy to be your parents and we love you more than you could possibly imagine!

1st Birthday Party!!

Jillian's 1st birthday party was last weekend. She had a great time seeing all her family and friends! Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate our sweet little girl's first year! We're so glad you all could come! I'll just let the pictures do most of the talking...The birthday banner and some of the presents
