Wowza! A whole year. I cannot believe we are here, but I’m also so excited! I love that first year of life and I am sad the “baby” phase is over. I also am excited because I love ages 12-18 months so much! I cannot wait to see my baby girl grow!

| Walking everywhere. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I saw her crawl. She is starting to “run” too which is really cute!
| She’s a climber! She is always trying to climb things. Luckily she has only been successful with small things!
| Ivy’s motor skills, here are all the ones she can do now: clapping, click her tongue, smack her lips, blow kisses, wave, stomp feet, dance (aka bounce), turn book pages and “read”.
| Girlfriend now has 6 teeth, and loves to use ‘em…
| Went to a park to actually play for the first time and she loved it! She is definitely an observer and gets a little overwhelmed by a lot of people. She did love all the new things to play with though!

Ivy is the best eater! I literally cannot think of anything she doesn’t like. She eats it all! She must be growing too because her appetite has really increased here lately. It also may be due to the fact that we stopped formula this past week. She is now just drinking whole milk and eating table food!
Some of Ivy’s favorite foods include; blueberries, black beans, broccoli, sausage, eggs, pumpkin muffins, graham crackers, blackberries, bananas and who am I kidding? She likes it all!

Daylight savings proved to be the best thing ever for our Ivy girl! Since the time change Ivy has been sleeping in until 7:00-7:30am! Best gift ever!
Here is her rough schedule.
|Wakes up at 7:00-7:30 ready to go!
| Morning nap around 9:00-9:30 which usually lasts an 1-1.5 hours
| Afternoon nap around 1pm which usually lasts about 2 hours
| In bed and asleep by 7:00pm every night.
You have been the biggest blessing to our little family this past year. It’s hard for me to imagine that you were not in it until that special day one year ago. You make us a more complete family and we love learning all about you! You are reserved, inquisitive, sweet, and feisty. We cannot picture life without you now. We love you more than you’ll ever know Ivy Girl!
