Turn Around

Bright Eyes! You get to sit facing forward in your car seat because you're 1 year old and 20 lbs. Wahoooooo!

Yesterday was Isla's first birthday. I made her spaghetti. She slurped each noodle one by one and smacked her lips with each bite. She loved it. Have you ever seen a cuter face? We went to the doctor today for her one year "well child" (notice "child" not "baby" anymore...sad) visit. She was a peach. She got a shot in each leg, but took it like a champ. She even blew kisses to the doctor as we were leaving the office. She's 29 in tall which puts her in the 58% - she must have gotten the height from her daddy's side. Her head circumference is 18 inches which puts her in the 74% - I'm assuming her head is so big from all the praise we give her all the time about being so stinkin cute. 20 lbs is the 30%, but its good enough to be turned around in her car seat. In any event, she's healthy, happy and a huge pasta lover. We are more in love with her each day, and so glad that she likes carbs like we do.
