Happy Birthday Sunflower!

Birthday Girl

I cannot believe my baby is a year old. This past year flew by so quickly, it felt much faster than Lily's first year did.  I knew this was my last first year and how fast it goes, I tried to pay more attention and slow it down, but life just keeps speeding up.

At 1 Sunflower is still a little peanut. At just 17 pounds, 11oz she is below the 5th percentile for weight but her personality is huge. She runs the show around here with a voice that can out yell and boss around her big sister. You would never know it by her size but her appetite is bigger than most full grown men and she only likes food that is full of flavor - spicy black bean soup is a particular favorite.

She has little interest in her baby toys, she prefers to play Barbies and My Little Ponies with her sister. She took her first steps before her first birthday, but still prefers to be carried around while she points to where she wants to go.

She is a snuggler when awake and and gives the sweetest hugs. She is still shy around new people and will bury her head in my lap while sticking her bum up in the air, but once she is comfortable with you she is a little ham. She loves peek-a-boo and has an infectious laugh.

I can really eat this?
