Hadley 12 months

How can you be 12 months old! I know I say this every month, but the time is really flying! As i put you to bed on October 28th i couldn't believe it was my last night putting my baby to bed, can you believe they call a 1 year old a toddler? You will always be my baby! This past year has been the best year of my life, i can't wait to watch you grow, but not too fast please :) We also can't wait to make a million memories with you as you grow and become a little lady! I hope you will still want to snuggle, give kisses, hugs and hold my hand for as long as possible!

Clothes: You are wearing 12 month clothing, some of the pants are 12-18 month but they are a bit big in the waist, you are tall and skinny just like your daddy! You are also still wearing some 9 month clothing, but i just packed up all your summer 9 month clothing and we are going into the warmer weather 12 month clothing! I have also found some super cute clearance summer stuff for next year! I am hoping they will fit you! 

Health: You are a great eater and very healthy! You are growing and growing, which makes this mommy's heart sad and happy at the same time! You are just a happy and healthy little girl, that is all we could ask for. You are still tall for your age but your weight is slowly catching up and you also have a perfectly big head haha!

Diet:  You eat 3 meals a day and 2 snacks, for the most part you are getting food we are eating, but you still like milk, you are still getting breast milk, but only when we are together, i am no longer pumping at work, i am getting ready to wean you, but you have become attached, so i am thinking it is going to be harder than i think! You love almost all food you have tried, the only thing you don't really like is cottage cheese and hamburger! You still love milk and are getting whole milk and almond milk in your sippy and bottles, we are hoping to have the bottles gone in the next month! So many changes when you turn 1... so sad!

Sleep:  You have started to go to sleep a little earlier then normal the last few weeks, usually asleep around 9:30, which is better than your 11:30 the past year, you get up around 8:30 or so in the morning. You are still taking 2 naps a day, usually a morning nap of about 45 minutes and a later afternoon nap for about 90 minutes, i am not sure when they say you drop a nap, but i feel like you still need both naps, you are very busy and get sleepy! 

Baby Gear:  You still love your play table, books, your pumpkin that you like to put your little blocks in, your purse, you also love your new anywhere chair we got you for your birthday, you love to stand on it and look out the window! You have also seemed to find a liking for Macy's dog toys lately!

Likes:  Baths, walking, running away from mommy as I chase you, laughing, trying to catch Macy, splashing in Macy's water dish, drinking out of your sippy cup swinging at the park, sleeping, snuggle time with mommy and daddy, rocking in your rocker, your sister Macy, feeding time, your crib, pacifiers, car rides, listening to music, eating puffs and sharing them with Macy, dancing to music, you love Luke Bryan, shopping with mommy :)  you also love stroller rides.

Dislikes:  Diaper changes, being hungry, getting into your new big girl car seat, you do not like to be woken up, getting out of the bath and also lately, trying to take a nap you fight it like a ninja!
You are getting so big, you have 10 teeth and cut 6 in a week i felt terrible for you, you were cutting your 1st year molars and you could tell they were really bothering you. Saying so many words, momma, dada, dog, papa and bob, bye, go dog go and we think you say brown bear! You love big people food and we are so happy that you are eating good, I was worried because I am such a picky eater! you are also still using sign language, which i am so proud of you! You have finally gotten Thank you down which was hard, i sometimes think you like to do it without really saying Thank you, but it is so cute anyway!
We just adore you and can't believe that you are a year old! You have brought your dad and I so much joy, we weren't sure we were going to be able to be parents and this past year has been one of the best years of our lives, you have given us so much more to live for, i love your daddy more than i thought possible! Watching him be a daddy is the greatest thing i have ever seen!  I am so overjoyed with happiness and sadness at the same time, this year went way too fast! Please know we love you, can't wait to watch you grow!
Love you to the moon and back Hadley Marie

Love, mommy
