CCCLXVI

I don't usually crank out two posts back to back, but you know...it's a special occasion.

I'm the big 1 year today.  Finally.  Technically it's not until 10:11pm tonight, but who cares.  I was getting tired of trying to tell people how many days old I was and was running out of fingers to count on (like 356 days ago).  Mom and dad were pretty ecstatic that I decided to sleep until 8am today.  A little extra shut eye never hurts anyone.

To recap, Mimi visisted me Thursday after the dorctor and we compared boo boo's on our fingers.


Then on Friday, we had a party for my birthday, even though it was a day early.  School had a banner and mom brought in cup cakes for me and my friend Matthew to chow down on.





 Saturday mom woke me up by singing happy birthday!



In the afternoon we went to Bob and Ta's for a party...for me!  All the family was there and Avery and Uncle Dave stopped by too.  Thank you to everyone for all the goodies!  As you can see I eagerly awaited for everyone to arrive.
 

















 

I think the only snafu of the party was that I was supposed to enjoy my cake.  Not so much.




A couple days before, mom warned me not to play with the dog's water bowl.

I didn't listen.


Ta, thanks for the gyro bowl.  It totally works!

Grandma Ta wanted me to share this video. These are some of the birdies I like to watch out at their house.

365 Days

Today, Friday, July 29th I'm 365 days old!  Crazy I know.

It was a busy week.  At last post, I had just finished dinner with Dido.  Wednesday, July 20th was another swim lesson, Thursday was dinner with Michael and Michelle, Friday was dinner with our fun neighbors Scott and Molly, and Saturday was spent out at Gma and Gpa's.  We went to the pool then had dinner with the family. 



Saturday was pretty fun.  We went to breakfast and then hit up Trader Joes!  Mom snapped a LOT of pics this week so I'll try and be brief.


Ceiling fans, awesome.

Apricot stuffed french toast, awesome.

Trader Joe's, awesome.

Riding on dad's shoulders, awesome!
  
Two Maddie's, double awesome.

On Sunday afternoon we went to the splash park.  So fun.  Fountains made just my size!

Here I am frolicking at the splash park.  I think this is the only applicable situation where I would say frolick.


We had our "Sunday Get Together" at the Bell's house in the evening and I even got to see my old pal Jackson Markham from daycare!  I think he hardly recognized me I've grown so much in the last 4 months.  As you can see, there was a LOT going on and dad was right in the middle of it.
I'll skip over to Thursday, July 28th.  Mom was off all day so it started off fun, breakfast with dad.  Here I am rocking out the gangst' look (note the one pant leg up).  Then we hung out by the fountain. 





















Then I played with some toys that looked awfully familiar.  Then I got weighed and came in at 18.7lbs (10th % ile) and 27.5inches tall (10th % ile) and my head measured (75th % ile).  I seem to be tracking short.  Shocking, I know.






Then I showed the doctor my nunchuck skills using her tongue depressors.















That's when all hell broke loose!  Doc sent me for lead testing (damn Chinese toys) where they had to take my blood.  Maybe she just wanted to punish me for having mad nunchuck skills.




The day was made better when Mimi showed up to take me to the pool!
A special thanks to Stan and Jo for my awesome outfit!  I got many compliments from school on how I looked like a little lady.

Sneaking in a few pics of Paige.

Here I am just being plain silly.
