My firstborn....You are growing and changing so much. You are an awesome big sister and you love to play with and make your sister laugh. I love you so much and Love that you love me too. You seek me out to cuddle or give me random hugs. We moved out of grandmas and grandpas into our own place and you took it with stride and haven't looked back. You love having your own room and bathroom. You graduated from preschool and had a ceremony which you were not thrilled about partaking in, but you got over your fear and sang your little heart out. You also lost your first tooth and your tooth fairy david brought you two dollars folded like hearts. You were so excited and brave about losing your tooth. You love singing and learning and you are excited to show everyone what you know. You seem excited about starting Kindergarten in the fall and are looking forward to your first trip to Disneyland.
You are ONE today baby girl! I can't believe a year has gone by already. Today we celebrated your day by going to lunch with grandma and Alayah. Then we went to the mall and got your picture taken with the Easter Bunny. Later in the day we went to Yogurtland with your daddy and had some yummy ice cream. You have been battling a fever the last two days so you weren't feeling 100 percent today. You go to sleep around 7 every night and wake up about twice and have a bottle. You wake up for good around 7am. Lately, you have been going to sleep on your own in your bed and don't need mama to rock you to sleep. You are eating more and more food and less and less baby food. You love pasta with spaghetti sauce. It is your all time favorite thing. You are great at walking now even though you still fall down sometimes. You love playing with your big sister and follow her around the house. You are wearing size 4 diapers and size 4 shoes. You also wear size 18 months clothing.
Oh my baby girl how you have changed in the last several months. You have six teeth right now and numbers 7 and 8 are almost through. You are starting to talk more and more. You can say "uh oh" "dada"(byebye)while waving your hand, "dank u"(thank you)"yeth" (yes) and are working on more. You have such a personality and are full of spunk. You love playing with your sister and laugh and scream if she chases you. You can point to your nose and your belly button when we ask. You are finally sleeping through the night now that we moved in with daddy and you have your own room. You can drink out of a sippy cup and are practicing drinking out of a cup and a straw. You love to dance and you just cant help but wiggle when you hear music. You love to climb the stairs..up and down up and down...and boy do you love to EAT. You eat everything and I don't think that there is a food that you do not like yet lol. I love you baby girl and I am so glad to see you happy and growing.
You are 10 months baby girl. You have hit double digits. You had your first set of pig tails this month. They turned out pretty cute. You are still in size 3 diapers but you are on the last box. You are still in size 3 shoes and are heading out of your 12 month clothes and moving into 18 months. You said your first word this month "uh oh", then you waved bye bye and you also got two teeth. You did a lot of changing this month. You are getting really good at standing without holding on to anything, but you get scared and hurry and sit down. Mommy loves rocking you to sleep at night and cuddling with you. You aren't breastfeeding too much anymore, but we still do it occasionally. You still wake up several times at night and this month you have been waking up and drinking full 4oz bottles each time. You still go to bed around 8 and wake up three times and are up for good anywhere from 6am to 7am. You are still having trouble with your ears and ear infections, so it looks like you will be getting tubes in your ears pretty soon. Only two more months and then you will be 1 year already. It seems like just yesterday I was preparing for your arrival. I love you Amarah.
Oh, Alayah. Where has this year gone? This has been a very big year for you with lots of changes and lots of growing up. You started this year off in preschool loving your animals and batman. You made friends with a little girl named Danielle and you two have become inseparable. You both love to play animals all day long. The biggest change you had this year was becoming a big sister. You love your new sister and you are such a great help to mommy. You love to carry her around and share your yogurt with her. You keep her happy in the car and you just all around love her. In the fall you started Pre-kindergarten and you've made great strides. When you first started you could only write A's and H's...and by your 5th birthday you can write your first name like pro. Right now you are working on writing your a's in lowercase instead of them all being in capitol letters. You can write any letter of the alphabet by memory even though some aren't quite there yet. :) You are 43.5lbs and 43.25 inches. You where size 5T and can fit in big girls 4/5 clothes. You wear size 12 shoes and you love boy things. Right now you have shifted from your love of batman back to horses and have added captain america and Thor to your super hero loves. I can't wait to see what this next year brings and I love watching you grow and blossom. You are my favorite girl in the whole wide world and I love you soooo much
