One Year

Jillian's one year post is way past due.  Well, 23 days to be exact but who's counting?  Oh yeah, me!  Guess I'm a little behind. :(
Now that our baby girl is O-N-E, she seems to be picking up new things so much faster!  I'm sure it's my imagination but I think they really start to seem older when they start walking.  She wasn't really walking on her birthday, but she definitely is now!  She actually seems to prefer walking to crawling now.  It's crazy how quickly that changed!

Baby girl is doing well with trying to get rid of the bottle.  She is down to just a bottle before bed and she drinks water and (some) milk from sippy cups during the day.  She has three meals and a snack during the day and is eating so many new foods!

Food she likes: cereals, blueberries, cheese, crackers, chicken, turkey, beef, toast, waffles, pancakes, pears, bananas, oranges, pasta, peas, carrots, corn, eggs, potatoes.
Foods she hates: yogurt, cottage cheese, strawberries, grapes, nutrigrain bars.
Miss Jillian is talking up a storm!  She can say Mama, Dada, and Uh Oh.  If I ask her to she can find her pacifier, water, ball, brother, Pita (the dog.)  She also likes to pretend she is talking on the phone.  She prefers to play with my phone but she will also find things and pretend they are phones...like the monitor, remote, her hand, etc.

Sister has gotten a new tooth in the last two weeks bringing the total to eight (four on top and four on bottom.)  She is in size 4 diapers, 18 month clothes, and size 3 shoes.

Jillian is constantly trying to keep up with her brother, and walking is helping in that effort!  She will quickly get to any toy he has just put down, which frustrates brother to no end!  They inevitably want the same toy at the same time.
Our newborn girl!
