The 2nd year

Well, I didn't make it back here to post about Anna's birthday and now she's 13 months old! It was a fun, tiring weekend as we celebrated her birthday twice. Once with adult friends and family, then with our baby and mommy friends.

Her ducky cake was awesome. The cupcakes for the baby party were fun too. We just discovered the ease of icing cupcakes with a large decorator tip and I'll never use a knife again! Anna dove right in to her cupcake after delicately sampling her ducky cake at the first party.

The highlight of the parties was Anna's new friend, Clothes Hanger. She would not let go of it once she opened gifts of clothes. I can't even take her into a clothing store now without her going nuts for the hangers. Weird kid.

We're not walking yet or even standing alone very much, but I know we'll get there. She loves going up the stairs, so we've got gates up now. Next task will be baby proofing any cupboards and drawers. The low ones are fairly safe, but once she's standing independently there will be things I won't want her getting into.

Teeth count is at 7. Only one more to go before molars. Weight was nearly 19 pounds at her 1 yr appt.

She has a great appetite and likes milk as well. Any spit ups that yogurt gave her around 9 months have been gone since about 11 months.

Sleep is pretty good. Bed around 8:30-9 and most nights she sleeps through until 5:30 which would suck if I weren't already waking up to drive Daddy to the train anyways. A 2 hr nap around lunch to 2.

Well, time to wrap up and head to Strong Start with Anna. It's a great free program, similar to preschool. It's sure interesting seeing Anna interact with kids now that she's getting older. She's a bit aggressive, this one. I hope it won't stay this way!
