Happy First Birthday Cecilia!!!
Cecilia turned One Year Old today! But I don't think she knows or cares. Oh well, maybe next year she will get it.
Anyway, Cecilia is doing well and has progressed fantastically through her first year. She not only walks like a pro but can even speed walk (almost run) and climb up a single stair (which she likes to practice on boxes she finds around the apartment). She loves to walk laps around the dining room table and roll around on the floor and look at things from every possible angle. She can be quite cranky if she doesn't get her half of a banana each morning (no complaints here) but complains equally as much if she doesn't get some Oatmeal Cinnamon cookies (oh well - they are organic and 10 calories a piece - we should all eat so well). She loves books and although she is still learning not to chew on them, she loves turning the pages. She absolutely loves music of just about every kind and enjoys "dancing" (bouncing) to it. She is a big Veggietales fan but has also liked Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly (she has good taste!) We are still waiting to hear that first word of which she knows the meaning, but she is not behind in this. She babbles and makes sounds all day and we are simply waiting for the day she will surprise us with her first meaningful word.
Her Birthday party will not be until next Sunday, so it may be a bit before we have pictures of that. This Wednesday, however, she will be getting her first portraits done and we look forward to sharing those with you. Cecilia definately has a busy week ahead of her - her 1 year doctor's appt. is on Friday which will, I'm afraid, include a few shots. She is also still in discomfort from teething so please keep our Birthday Girl in your prayers this week.
UPDATE: 1 Year Height: 29 inches (70th %); Weight: 20 lbs 1 1/2 ounces(40th % - what can we expect from a little girl who is on the move from morning til night - I can barely keep up!).
