The first year

I really can't believe how fast this past year has gone. It doesn't seem like that long ago I was holding my little baby in the hospital. Now she is my little monster that is passed out in her crib. It really is amazing how fast they grow and how much they learn. Last year all she could do was cry, eat, and poop. Now she added crawling, almost walking, temper tantrums, screaming, playing with toys, clapping, poking your eyes out when she wants you to wake up, feeding herself (if you could call it that), stealing others toys, beating other babies up with their own toys, hugs and kisses (discretionally), babbling, talking, singing, dancing, smiling (with those two adorable dimples), flirting, head-butting, rib kicking (I swear she never did it to me while in my stomach), and so many more things that I just can't name them at the moment. It really is amazing how much I really love her no matter what she is doing at that time. Happy One Year Mark to you my Lizzie Monster!!!!!

Here are a few pictures of her first birthday. She shared it with my sister who turned 24 on the same day. My favorite part is her eating her cake. She just licked the frosting that was closest to her. Jai showed her that it was okay to smash her hands in it, but she kinda thought the frosting was gross on her fingers. It was so cute.

I still can't believe Lizzie is a year old already. I will put Spencer in self defense classes before we see you again. You always told me your kids would beat up mine and I think Lizzie is definitely a threat! :) Glad you posted!
