So, again, we were lucky enough to have Heather do a photo shoot for Claire's 1 year pictures. I can't even express in words how amazing they turned out! I couldn't be happier with them. We also had a grand idea to get some helium balloons, but we lost them before 1 picture could even be taken...nice. So, enjoy!

So, I'm a month behind on that post, and I have no idea how that happened. On Claire's birthday, we had a big family party at my parent's house. All of the Calgary family was there, minus Kandice and Brett, and we had such a fun time. Claire was a little under the weather to start with, but after we got some motrin into her, she started to perk right up. We had a ballerina birthday cake (we wanted a bunny, but Costco didn't make them), and since it was Sommer's birthday too, she chose tuxedo cake. Claire got so many wonderful presents, and started playing with them right away. She got some new clothes and beautiful new dresses as well. She was spoiled big time! She also had 2 big bruises on her forehead from falling. She's a constant bruise! I tried to take a bunch of pictures, but part way my flash died. I got some fine ones, but for most of them she looks like she doesn't feel well. I'll post them as soon as I can edit a few. I'll have to add to this post later. Here are some of the things Claire was doing at 1
-Of course, she walks EVERYWHERE
-She says quite a few words "Mommy" "Daddy" "Baby" "Ball" "baba" "Mimi" "Papa" "Nana" "Hi" I know there's more but I don't remember right now.
-She sleeps horribly. Yay for me!
-She loves to be around kids
-She weighs 19.3 pounds(25th%), and I don't remember height, but she's in the 50th for that
-she is like a little parrot. She tries to repeat everything you say. She has now added to her list of words
-hello, love you, thank you, peekaboo, wow, boo
-she's trying to run, and falling still
-she's a very picky eater. She likes a few foods a lot, but won't branch out too much. She loves eggs, toast, yogurt, strawberries, blackberries, zucchini soup, mac and cheese, cheese, and that's it pretty much, but we're working on it.
-She just learned how to do peekaboo, and it's the cutest thing in the entire world!
-She's become a daddy's girl. She loves to be with him, and she will stand outside the bedroom door banging on it and crying for him when he's asleep.
-She wants to be doing anything you're doing.
I just can't believe how fast the time has gone and how much she's grown. It makes me so sad to realize that I don't have a tiny baby anymore! It's a good thing she still keeps things fun!
