Birthday Party PART 3 finally! And one year stats!

Sorry for the delay in posting these pictures.  It seems like in the last week or so, time has totally gotten away from me.  Terry's recovery is going well, but it seems like I have a lot more on my plate without him being able to help out.  I hate to admit it....but he does A LOT more than I give him credit for.  Here are the cake pictures that I know you all have been waiting for!  Enjoy!!  Stats at the bottom....

The girls were very intrigued by the idea that their highchairs were in the front yard.
Alexis left & Addison right.

Addison's first bite.

She didn't waste anytime digging into her cake.  I finally had to be the party pooper and take it away from her when she started gagging on the frosting.

Alexis' first bite.

Alexis wasn't quite as messy as Addison was, but you could tell she enjoyed it.

Addison Grace
  • Weighed 15 pounds 11 ounces on April 14, 2010 (the day after their 1st birthday)
  • Measured 28" tall.  Pediatrician still predicts she is going to be very tall.
  • Is generally a great kiddo.  I know I might curse myself, but she is the better sleeper of the two.  If you put her in her crib, she will grab her blankie and lay right down.
  • Eats very well.  The only thing she won't eat right now is cooked carrots.  She doesn't mind baby food carrots but doesn't like fresh cooked carrots.
  • Still babbles a lot, says Da Da, Mama, up, and is the master "patty caker".
  • She has the sweetest little personality.  I can honestly say that her personality has started to blossom more in the last month or so. 
  • Still has blonde, super curly hair in the back.  The more humid it is, the curlier her hair is.
  • Still wears size 6-9 month clothing and some 9 month clothes.
  • Wears Size 3 Pampers Cruisers Diapers.
  • Has 4 teeth, the top two and the bottom two.
  • Not walking yet, but is a super fast crawler and can climb the stairs in record time.
  • Love to take a bath.  I regret teaching her how to splash because she is now great at it!

Alexis Faith

  • Weighed 16 pounds 13 ounces on April 14, 2010.
  • Measured 27 1/2 inches tall.
  • Is also generally a very good kiddo.  She has an attitude (wonder where she gets that from??) that pokes out from time to time.  She knows what she wants!
  • Eats very well.  Love Cherrios.  Also does not like cooked carrots. 
  • Talks a lot.  She's the louder and more vocal of the two munchkins.  Says Mama only when she is mad or wants something.  Says DaDa all the time.  Says Tat (aka Cat) and will mimic just about whatever you say. 
  • Has become more reserved and makes you work to get smiles from her.  But when she smiles, it will melt your heart when she grins from ear to ear.
  • Still has jet black straight hair & the largest brown eyes you have ever seen.
  • Still wears 6-9 month clothing. And an occasional 9 month outfit.
  • Wears size 3 Pampers Cruisers Diapers.
  • Has 3 teeth.  Two on the bottom and one on the top.  I'm pretty sure she's working on more now.
  • Walks like a pro except for when she is tired, she looks like a drunk.  She's become better at walking in just the last week or so.  She won't climb the stairs like Addison does.
  • Also loves to take a bath.  I'm pretty sure she loves playing with her alphabet toys in the water more than she loves taking a bath.

Wow! Sounds like they are both doing great. That is awesome that they are such good eaters. My 16 month old was but she's gotten kind of picky lately, they definitely go through phases when it comes to eating. Oh well, guess it's just like everyone, they like what they like just like we do. What a fun time to see what they are like and to see how they develop as mini people!
