Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

Maggie month 12

I can't believe my baby girl is a 1 year old!  The time truly does fly with each child but it absolutely flew by with her.  We took her 12 month pictures last week and thankfully this time she wasn't as active.  The boys kept her entertained.  Month 11 was another fun month with her.  The biggest thing to happen for Maggie is she is walking!!!  She is walking everywhere. If she falls down than she gets right back up and walks again.  She now has 8 teeth with more on their way.  4 on top and 4 on the bottom.  She is saying more words and repeats a lot of sounds we make.  She is eating all finger foods and is willing to try most things sometimes being the best eater of our 3 kids.  She is also primarly on a sippie cup with 1 last bottle at night before bed.  She is also drinking whole milk instead of formula.  She has dropped her morning nap which is so early compared to my boys but she wasn't taking an afternoon nap if she took a morning nap and I definitely need time where all 3 are quiet at the same time.  Most days she takes a good long afternoon nap. She still sleeps great at night.  She is pretty independent and will play nicely by herself for a little while.  She is still a go with the flow baby but is making sure we know when she wants something or doesn't get her way.  She understands that if you make a ruckus than you sometimes get what you want.  She loves bath time but hates when she has to get out.  It is quite a scene when she is getting out of the bathtub.  She has also started experiencing seperation anxiety.  She gets very upset when she knows she is being left or if there is a babysitter coming.  She is still the happiest baby I have ever been around.  She smiles and laughs constantly.  

Things she loves:
-her brothers!!!
-her brothers toys
-her daddy and mommy
-her own voice
-smiles from others
-bath time
-carrying toys and random objects all around our house
-her fingers


Things she doesn't love:

-when everyone leaves the room
-getting in the car seat (once she's in it she usually is ok)

-getting her out of the bathtub

She weighs 22.2 lbs (only gained .2 lbs - I guess all the walking she is doing) and is 30.5 inches long.  She is 75% in weight and almost 90% in height.  Our biggest baby for sure =).   

She was mad because I took the 2 away from her.

The boys said they were taking pictures of her too.IMG_9858 IMG_9860
She's looking at me like "mom, these 2 are crazy...don't they know those aren't real cameras.".  IMG_9862 IMG_9863

We love you Maggie Anne and couldn't imagine our lives without you in it!  You are our favorite girl!
