Lacey's 1 Year doctors appointment

Today I took Lacey to her 1 year doctors appointment. Everything went great she weighs 23 pounds 4 ounces and was 29.5 inches long. She is in the 75 percentile for both weight and height. She has gained exactly 2 pounds 5 ounces and grown 2 inches since her last appointment.

They tried again to draw blood for an iron and still could not get it. She was NOT a happy camper about this at all. It really didn't help that she didn't nap long enough at daycare and that she was hungry. We'll try again at her 15 month appointment.

Other than that she the appointment went great! She is at or above all the of the 1 year milestones. We couldn't be more proud of her, she is such a beautiful blessing in our lives.

Lacey's 1 Year Pictures

Here are some of the pictures Lacey had taken for her 1 year birthday. She did a great job, although I have to say it is much easier to get pictures taken of little one before they are mobile and have their own agenda...

This is the I'm otta her picture. She meant it too there were no others taken after this one because she absolutly refused to take any more, read: she kicked and screamed everytime I brought her back for more.

Lacey's Birthday Party

We celbrated Lacey's birthday yesterday. It was a small celebration, Mommy, Daddy, Kylie and of course, the guest of honor Lacey! She seemed to enjoy herself, loved her piece of cake that big sister Kylie decorated for her, and really liked all of her gifts.

I made the cake, Kylie helped me put the marshmellows around the bottom and then she decorated Lacey's very own piece. Kylie was very proud of her decorating and so was Lacey!

Lacey is One Today!

This was our sweet little girl one year ago today...
3 Months

9 Months

1 Year!

Lacey it is hard to believe that a year has passed since we first met. It has been a wonderful year with you in our lives, you have brought us more happiness than we could have ever imagined, God has truely blessed us. You went from a helpless infant to a dertermined little girl. You always seem to have places to go and things to do. You make us laugh everyday, I think you are going to be quite the little comedian, you love scrunch up your nose and make funny faces. You love to be tickeled and have the most contagious laugh.

In one short year you have learned how to walk, talk, laugh, and feed yourself (albeit messy). As far a eating there isn't much you won't eat, so far the only thing I have discoverd you don't like is cottage cheese (although I don't blame you) and you LOVE, LOVE, LOVE blueberries. you can't seem to get enough of them.

Nana affectionally named you baby Taz. And I have to say once I heard the name I had to agree that name definatly fits you. You are a busy little bee, and on most days Mommy can tell where you have been because there is usually at trail of 'stuff' all over the place. So far you are not afraid of the dark or strangers, you absolutly love other kids and you always seem to be smiling!

Kylie loves having a sister in her life and you really adore her. It is beautiful watching you two play. You love playing with all of Kylie's toys, always trying to do whatever Kylie is doing. I'm not sure you have figured out yet that you are much smaller than she is, and if you have you sure don't let it slow you down.

Today on your birthday we are going to do things pretty low key. We are going to go to yours and Kylie's swimming lessons and then go see Santa! Who knew having a birthday this time of year would give you that kind of an opportunity. We'll see how you like Mr. Claus, mommy plans on getting some pictures of the moment. Daddy unfortunatly has to work so we are going to celebrate your birthday with daddy tomorrow .

You are a beautiful little girl and Mommy and Daddy will love you unconditionally forever. You light up our lives, we are so grateful and blessed to have you as our daughter.

Happy 1st Birthday Sweetheart!

Fall Fun

We had lots of fun playing in the leaves last weekend. There is no shortage of leaves in our yard that's for sure! Kylie and I made a big pile of leave in the front yard.

Me and my girls :)

Kylie really like running and jumping into the leaves, she had never done that before.

Sweet little girl

Playing in the leaves, having lots of fun!

Me and my little girl...I love her so much!

Lovin' the leave pile...

Lacey liked walking in the leaves that were scattered in the yard but not the big pile so much.

She just got up from her nap and was really not to sure about the big pile of leaves

Here she is on a mission to get to the bottom of the hill in the front yard before I could catch her...

I literally had to almost sprint to get in front of her, and this was her expression as she was running away from me....

Meet Kelly Kisser

Meet Kelly Kisser, this is Kylie's concert name. She has been giving concerts all weekend. She loves singing so much and it is so much fun to listen to her create her songs. She is so talented she mostly makes them up as she is singing, rhyming the whole way through the song!

Then when she is done singing she has been giving us 'instructions' on where to find her other songs. They go something like this:
  1. Tape your computer to your TV so you can pretend that you can watch me on the TV
  2. Go to (her made up website)
  3. Click on wild and you can watch all of my songs!

Greg and I had a good chuckle over the website she made up. But I'm thinking maybe she is watching too much iCarly since everything on show is related to a webshow??? I don't know, but what I do know is Kylie is so much fun to watch and listen to!
