ONE and loving it!

Tim and I have found that the novelty of watching a little one learn and grow doesn't wear out!   We are starting to see Cora's personality come out more and more every day.  It is so fun getting to know the little person who is our child and it is especially neat seeing Toby and Asher enjoy Cora and the things she says and does.  We really can't believe she is ONE already!

A little bit about our girl:

Age: 1
Eyes: blue (like Daddy's)
Hair: brown (because Mommy special ordered to have a red-head, a blond, and a brunette)
Teeth: 4
Favorite booksGoodnight Gorilla and Brown Bear, Brown Bear. She is actually very choosy when it comes to books!  She makes it very clear when she doesn't want to be read a certain one by turning her body completely away while making an unhappy sound.  If she does like your choice of book, though, she happily sits back in your lap.  Can you say PARTICULAR?
Favorite food:  Right now she is eating pretty much anything I put in front of her.  Definitely growing!  She loves finger foods.
Words:  She is saying dada, uh-oh, ball, all done, right there, where go?, woof-woof, hoo-hoo (as in owl), quack-quack, and other words...but not mama.  (I'm trying not to feel bitter...)

This pink car was one of her birthday presents.  Now she has her own set of wheels to cruise around in while her big brothers ride their bikes and scooters around our street!

We had a fun little celebration for her with family and close neighbors.  She and that cupcake are pretty SWEET!

Cora is so adorable!!!!!!! I can not believe she is already ONE year old! I just cracked up when you said she turns her back and makes a noise if she does not like the choice of books!!! Now, where does she get that from?! She looks so sweet in all her outfits! Happy Birthday, Cora!!!!! Love, A. Dianne

I can't wait to see that little girl and her brothers next month.

Oh, and she's particular like her mom and aunt are particular. I'm not surprised in the least.

What a doll! Loved loved loved getting to see so many pictures of her. Wish I was there to give her a great big hug myself. Can't believe how time flies by. Seems like just yesterday we were sitting on the couch after a long day packing and she was making your tummy move cause she wasn't born yet! She is a beauty!

Awww, she is so cute, and getting so BIG! And what a smart little girl! It looks like you're having fun dressing a girl, and getting to use barrettes. :) Hopefully we'll be able to see you guys again soon!

Lots of Love,
Matt, Sara & Bella
