Happy Birthday Parker!




Well, today is Parker's first birthday and I can hardly believe it. One year has gone by so incredibly fast. To think that I was in labor this day last year. I kind of miss it. She also had her year check up today and everything went well except for those dreaded shots! They were out of two of the shots so we will have to get those when we go back for her 15 month check up. Everything looked good especially her ears which we were worried about after having tubes put it. They both looked great and I'm happy to hear that. Things have been much better since her operation.
Some specifics about Parker:
Weight: 21 lbs
Height: 30 1/4 inches long
Head Circumference: 18

Eating: Anything and Everything! As of last night, she will have no more bottles. She had some muffins and milk and went to bed. She did great and slept all night long.
Sleeping: This is the tricky area. She has had a rough time with sleeping since we rock her to bed and etc. Last night, we took the plunge and put her to bed drowsy and angry, :). She cried for about 20 minutes or so and finally put herself to sleep. I was very worried that it would be much worse but it wasn't. I just hope we can keep it up. I can't wait to throw out the bottles and formula!
Developmental: She is walking, talking/gibberish, waves bye-bye, blows kisses, pat-a-cake and attempts at itsy bitsy spider. She loves for me and Jeff to read books to her. She is really loving the Dr. Seuss ABC book she has and always wants one of us to read it to her.

Saturday we are having her birthday party and I'm super excited for it. We got her some great gifts and I can't wait to see her plow into her birthday cake. It will be great. I took some pictures of her on her first birthday so everyone can see and enjoy!
