She's ONE!!!!!

Lindsay had her first birthday on September 7th, Labor Day. We celebrated with a big BBQ bash with friends and family. Our little princess had a great time and we loved sharing her birthday with everyone. Although its gone faster than I'd like, she's growing and changing just as she should be. At birth she was 7 lbs 9 oz and 20 inches. Now, she's 22 lbs 10 oz and 28 1/4 inches. She is a happy baby who smiles lots, loves to explore and doesn't like to take no for an answer. We can already see her girl attitude and "drama" showing through. She's extremely loud and vocal and usually at just the wrong time. She hasn't mastered timing just yet. Her vocabulary includes mama, dada, kitty cat, and her favorite, bread. Most everything she eats is bread (at least that's what she's named it). She's been sleeping through the night since about 4 mos old, we've finished breastfeeding about 3 wks ago and now she drinks regular milk. She takes it fine from a bottle but throws a cup if it contains milk. We're working on that. She's walking everywhere with a little help from the walls and couches, it won't be long before she's off on her though. Basically, she's healthy, intelligent, and absolutely beautiful. Lindsay is a joy to our house and truly a blessing from above.


  1. On May 5, 2008 we heard the words "It's a girl"
    from the ultrasound tech. I will never forget the feeling of awe I had seeing this little creature on the us screen and the joy that it was the little girl we had prayed for. From that day to the day she arrived in a hurry on September 7,2008 and the past year, Lindsay has brought joy and delight to not only her family but to all who meet her. Lindsay is nothing short of a blessing to our family.
    It was so much fun to celebrate her first year and to know that there is so much ahead to look forward to as she grows and changes this coming year. I can't wait to experience it all. Love, GK
