It is so hard for me to believe that Mallorie turned one a week ago already! We made her birthday a special day. My hubby took the 13th (her birthday) off and I took the 14th off so I did not have to go back into work that night and we could spend the day together. we made a pancake breakfast and then after nap we went to the beach and hiked in the dunes. It was such a special day! I also got to spend the next day with her. We met my mom for lunch and went shopping. During her afternoon nap I looked through her baby book and some pictures and I could not believe how much she has grown. Here are some of her stats, favorites, and accomplishments.
~Although she was born a big baby at 9 lbs. 13 oz. she is now 22 lbs. 5 oz.
~She is now 33.5 inches long
~She can say "Mama", "Dada", "Da" = dog, "baba" = bottle, and "Yeah"
~If she hears a dog barking outside she will say " Da"
~If our dog Carter is drinking she can imitate him. (See here )
~ if you ask her if Carter is a good boy she will pat him
~She can stack her rings (See here)
~She can put on her "prettys" aka necklace
~Ask her what a cow says and she will say " Booooo" = Mooooo
~She has taken 7 steps and is walking more and more everyday

~ Can do how big is Mallorie? Then she raises up her arms
~she can sign "please"

~ if you sing "if you are happy and you know it" she will clap her hands
~She loves to dance whenever there is music on

She is such a joy in our lives and we love to watch her grow. the other night she was full of it and just making us laugh and my hubby said "She is just pure love!" and that really does sum up Mallorie. She is a happy, laid back, and loving little girl.
