She. Is. One.

Aubrey Lane, you are ONE!

You have officially transitioned from a baby to a toddler.  Although, you will always be my sweet baby.  I was telling you just the other night that you will always be my baby, and you shook your little head no at me... in front of your daddy and grandparents.  And they thought it was hilarious.

I am a mean mommy... I took you to the doctor for your 12 month shots and check up on your birthday, but you only cried for about 5 seconds.  You weighed 19.5 pounds and were 28.5 inches long.  That put you around the 25th percentile for weight and around 50th percentile for height.

After your doctor's appointment, I brought you to a little water park where we had a great little time.  You just loved splashing, sliding, and floating around.  Once we finished up, got home and had lunch, you passed out and took a four hour nap.  I didn't get any pictures from the water park because I was too busy playing and splashing with you.

At one, you aren't walking yet, but you push a walking toy everywhere and have taken a couple steps here and there, so I doubt it will be much longer before you are walking.  

Aubrey Lane, at 12 months old, you are on table food which you can handle well because you have TEN TEETH!  I started giving you whole milk in your straw sippy cup and you love it.  I still nurse you a few times a day, but I'm not sure how much longer that will last.

You are such a big girl, Aubrey Lane.  You mimic all sorts of words and phrases.  You are even trying to say "Thank You" now, which is so important because every little southern belle must be taught some manners early on ;-)

You can also play along with singing "If You're Happy and You Know It" by clapping your hands and stomping your feet during the appropriate times.

You are very strong willed and you want what you want when you want it.  We've started discussing appropriate methods of disciplining you because right now when we tell you "NO" you just shake your little head at us.  It's very cute, but... well you know.

You had such a sweet little first birthday party.  It was a pink lemonade stand theme.  I'll do a post for that soon!
