I’m ONE YEAR OLD today   January 27th, 2011

I’m one today! This has been an great year, I’ve learned so much! I can walk, say mama, and even feed myself! A year ago I couldn’t say the same :) My mommy made a whole list of things that I learned this year, and even SHE can’t believe how long it is! It’s hard to believe that a year ago I was so small – probably only the size of me without my legs now. And mommy tells me I didn’t do much. I slept a lot of the day, I ate some formula, and pooped a lot (but really, that hasn’t changed!) but that was about it. Now she and I can go places and I have fun, I laugh and play and explore. One of my favorite things to do is push stuff. We go to restaurants and I don’t really care about the food, I just want to rearrange the place. I am all about what she calls the “Feng Shui”.”

For my birthday, my grandma Neen made me this AWESOME purple monster cake! It said “Happy Birthday” on it, and when it was my turn to eat it, I just took off all of the frosting. That’s the important part anyway, right??

Since most of my family lives so far away, we had to have a “virtual” birthday party! My mommy uses this program called Skype, and we were able to have Grandpa Jim and Nana and Papa all call in from Wisconsin to sing to me and celebrate! And since they were so far away, we got to eat ALL THE CAKE!

Here I am talking to Nana and Papa!

Here, Nana and Papa were talking to Grandpa Jim while we were getting the cake ready!

And here’s our latest family portrait – minus my daddy cause he was the photographer!

I got a lot of great gifts. My favorite right now is my new vacuum cleaner! It makes sounds like a REAL vacuum cleaner and I like helping mommy clean the house a few times a day. I think she likes it when I help too! I used to be SO scared of her vacuum cleaner because it makes so much noise, but then one day grandma left it in the kitchen and I just pushed it back and forth for about an hour. I wasn’t scared of it anymore after that. It’s not so big and scary!
