Natalee's ONE Year old!

Oh my has this year flown by. I can't believe my sweet baby N is already ONE. She went from a 7 lb. 2 oz. LITTLE bundle of joy, to a 23 lb. 6 oz. BIG girl! Oh, and she is now 30 1/4 inches long!

Things to remember~
*Still wearing size 3 diaper but only to use up the last few. Those buggers are getting tight!
*Wearing 12 month clothes.
*Has 1 pair of shoes that fit those chubby little feet and they are a size 4.
*Has 8 teeth and her first set of molars are getting ready to pop through on the bottom.

*We've got a little walker on our hands. She's not an "exclusive" walker yet but she's been taking more and more steps without holding onto anything. Just in the last couple days I've watched her take 4-5 steps by herself and she does it all day long. She is being very cautious with the whole walking thing.
*Her newest phrase is "uh oh". I love it!
*When I ask her if she wants to eat or if she wants more to eat she shakes her head yes. Cutest thing ever.
*She's a climber! She climbs on her little chair and then onto the couch laughing hysterically and looks at me like "haha look what I did!"

*She's in a stranger danger phase. She cries if anyone except me, Josh or my Mom holds her.
*She is such a clown. She is constantly doing funny things and then clapping her hands because she knows how funny and cute she is.
*Hasn't had a bottle in over a week. She drinks real milk out of a sippy cup and she loves it. She's also had juice/water only when "needed". 
*Eats anything and everything that is safe for her to have. Loves fruit, veggies, pasta, crackers, puffs, cinnamon rolls and cheerios. She has started learning to eat with a spoon but still needs a lot of practice!

*Takes 2 naps a day. The first one is usually 2 hours after she wakes up and she sleeps 1 1/2-2 hours. The 2nd nap is usually 3 hours after she wakes up from her morning nap and that one is 1 1/2-2 hours also. At night she has been sleeping about 11 hours. She was waking up around 8am each morning for quite awhile but lately it's been closer to 7am. She has always been an awesome sleeper.
*She went to Vegas for the 2nd time to see her Papa and Grandma Kris. They had a little birthday party for Natalee and their other grandkids with April birthdays. While we were there we went to Circus Circus, the Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay, M&M World, the City Center, Bellagio and Bass Pro Shops to name a few places.

*We went to Disney on Ice but Natalee didn't want to hold still and watch the show so she spent most of the time in the lobby with Daddy.
*We went to lunch and the mall with my friend April and her little boy Andrew. We also went to the library this month.

*Natalee had a wonderful birthday party. She squealed in excitement while opening her gifts and loved her giant cupcake.
*Celebrated her 1st Easter. Liked doing egg hunts, didn't like the Easter Bunny, but loved playing with her slinkie and other toys in her basket.
