Happy Birthday, Macy Evelyn!

I can not believe Macy is 12 months old. It does seem like just yeterday that she completed our family of 5! I thought that I would be more sad to have my last infant turn one, but she's so much fun that I am not lamenting anything. I am sure that I'll be sobbing when she goes to Kindergarten, but for now I'm in celebration mode. 

Here are her stats:
Weight 20 lbs 1oz (50%)
Height: 28.5 inches (25-50%) 
Head Circumference (10-25%). 

AND because she is #3... here is how she compares to her siblings at one year!

Weight: 20lb 15.6 oz (50%)
Height: 30 inches (75%)
Head Circ: 17.25 cm (10-25%) 
21lbs 6oz (25%)
30.5 inches long (75%)
Head circumference (10%)

Just like her big bro, she loves to pull books off of shelves.
.... and she doesn't want to miss a thing! But she will actually sleep when she's tired (unlike Owen). 

She loves to 'help' around the house. Dishes and laundry are her favorites :) 

Cards game early May was chilly!

And she loved the play area. She is not timid at all to play with the big kids! 

Take me out to the ballgame!

This is my favorite picture of these two beautiful girls. I hope that they grow up close and have different interests so they don't have a lot of competition!

I love to eat finger foods!


 Toilet paper is my favorite pastime. I love to unroll it, play with it, and most of all I love to eat it!

 A special mother's day pic. My heart just overflows.

 How big is Macy? SO BIG!
Here's a sneak preview of her bday party!

 All DONE! I got cake everywhere.. but didn't eat a lot of it!

 Tuckered out after her party. Love that she's my thumb sucker. May not love the orthodontic bills, though ;) 

When the big kids get a special treat, we give Macy an ice cream cone. She doesn't even need ice cream in it.. Love that she's easy to please!

  •  On her 12 month birthday, she had FIVE teeth. She beat both O&A by 3-4 whole teeth.
  • Vocals are starting!! Everyone is 'Dada'. She says 'BaBa' for bye bye and she imitates clapping, waving, and combing hair.
  • She stands on her own for a loooooong time (30-45 seconds) and can go from sitting to standing without holding on to anything. She will NOT be coaxed to take steps, though! Somehow I think I need to get her to do it just once, and then she'll take off. I know that walking babies are busy babies, but it would be great for her to walk at the park instead of crawl and eat mulch.
  • She loves to go up stairs. We have lots of work to do for DOWN. 
  • She eats anything and everything. I love feeding this age!
  • Her pincher grasp is quite defined. She can even get dog whiskers!
  • I can't remember how to transition infants off of bottles. SO, she's still taking one in the morning and before bed. She does great with the sippy (and even cold milk) during the day. We'll continue to work on this transition!
  • She loves the water. One of her birthday gifts was swim lessons, stay tuned!
  • She started day care. We are through 3 days! She's doing well but comes home completely exhausted and very thirsty. Fortunately she only goes to day care 2 days a week, and she can have her 2 naps a day the other 5. I feel bad pushing her in this way..but I guess that's the down side of being #3. She'll be ok, right? 
Macy Evelyn. we delight in you. I can't wait to watch you grow and develop over the next year. I know God has given you special gifts and he has big plans for you too!
