Well, it hardly seems like it's been a month, much less a year, but here we are, at Lucy's first birthday.
Her 12 month stats:
Height: 30 1/4 inches (84th percentile)--I am doubting the nurse's measuring and think she's only 28 1/2 or so
Weight: 18 lbs. 4 ounces (9th percentile)
Head: 45 cm (47th percentile)
So, she's all over the map, but perfect just as she is! She's not quite walking yet, but is very, very close. We're sure that one moment we'll turn our back only to find that she's walked to the other end of the house when we turn around.
Lucy had a great first birthday party. We had lots of friends and family and it was Ladybug themed for our little ladybug. I made and decorated the cake (making Rick a very special ladybug cake for his birthday a week earlier as practice) and we got some cute cookies from J.Rae's bakery. We had a fun BBQ and the kids loved the ladybug pinata. Lucy was a real party animal and had a great time with all the people and fun, and she really loved her cake (see video below). She was in a great mood, even for a Friday evening party, so we're really thankful she was able to enjoy it.
