1st Birthday!

Does it get any cuter than this girl??
1 Year Stats:  30.75" (92%) & 19 lbs 10oz. (48%)

I think this has officially been the fastest year of my life to date.  I can't believe Livi is already one!  She is so sweet and we can't get enough of her.  She's a pretty happy kid, but she'll let you know if she's not getting what she wants:)  Lately that is going up and down the stairs, her way not the safe way, and having us hold her hands and walk her around...where SHE wants to go!  As of her birthday, she would take a couple steps on her own, but now a couple weeks later I think we can consider her a walker!  She's pretty wobbly, but she can make it across the room and she loves to bend down, pick something up, drop it, and start over, laughing the whole time.

She still loves Weston and wants to do whatever he does.  She loves when he plays with her or dances with her.  She laughs every time he does anything naughty, which just fuels the fire, but it is pretty cute:)

She thinks it is hilarious when anyone, but especially Eric, says "uh oh!" and she tries to copy him.

She loves the copy cat game, but especially when we are copying her.  She'll hollar to Eric from the backseat, another room, or right in front of him, "Da!" and he hollars back "Da" and she laughs and does it again and again.  I love it!

She plays "peek-a-boo" by covering her ears instead of her eyes.

She will help me unload the dishwasher and as she hands me each piece of silverware says, "thank you".  Well mostly just the tone of thank you, but I'm pretty sure that's what she's trying to say.

Her first word was probably "Sadie"  (Taylor's dog).  She loves her.  We've been watching her for the weekend and she just sequels with excitement saying "Sadie" and trying to walk and follow her.

She is my climber.  She'll climb up anything she can get a foot hold on.

She loves to feed Danger.  She will look right at me wit a straight face while I'm telling her that her food is for her not Danger and her little hand will still make its way off her high chair and over to Danger.

She is a great eater.  So far she pretty much likes everything.  Lately she has been more stubborn about using silverware.  She can't quite pick up her food, but she tries and occasionally gets it or she holds her fork out to me and grunts/sequels until I put something on it and then she takes it back and feeds herself.

She also likes to drink water or milk and then let is just flow out of her mouth.  SERIOUSLY??  As I'm saying, "Liv, No."  She just gets a big grin on her face.

She just started sleeping through the night and it's AMAZING!!

Love this girl!!

We had a little party with family and a couple friends.  A week or so before her birthday Weston told me, "Mom, when I was playing with Livi in the playroom, she told me that she wants a pinata for her party."  I guess if that's what she wants...

Livi got the first shot at the know, since she was so excited about it:)

It may have been rigged to give Weston the best chance of busting it open.

Even Livi got in on the Candy scramble.  Weston made sure she got the necklace he put in there for her.  (And he got the other one-which he hasn't taken off much since)
Who knew Weston liked Pinatas so much!

Opening presents with Dad

She slowly got more and more help from the kids.

She loved her garage sale bike!
 When we first gave her the cupcake she touched it a little, but I don't think she knew how to pick it up.  She just kept stretching her arms out and squawking, "uh, uh" until I would pick it up for her to eat.  I finally got her to hold onto it and she put it straight up to her mouth and just started inhaling.  She didn't move it forever.  I think half of it was gone before she moved from the first picture below. 
I was actually a little worried she couldn't breathe.

Still inhaling...
Oh good...she was breathing

Sharing with Dad!

Clean clothes and a little bike ride = happy girl!

She is adorable!! I can't believe how fast she has grown!! It's just not fair. Except that now she is probably even more fun and cute than ever. So, I hear you are moving????? I will call you soon. I think you have a lot to catch me up on!
