Halle's latest photoshoot and stats...

I can't believe it's already been a year. My little baby has become this beautiful little girl. Sigh. Thanks Hillary for the fabulous pictures!

Halle at one year:

24 lbs (87%), 30" (77%).

My beautiful BIG girl!

One year ago today...

Happy birthday baby girl.

Halle at 12 months...

- has been to Hawaii. She loved the beach, eating delicious fruit, and playing in the pool. Oh, and her hair developed a ringlet-curliness all over that surprisingly has not disappeared since we came back to our 0% humidity home. We love the curls!

- plays hard like a big girl. Halle progressed rapidly from standing to walking to running and climbing. Mommy is having a hard time keeping up! We also clap, dance (she boogies up and down and twirls like a ballerina), and say "Mama", "Dada", and "Bah Bah". Jim is convinced she says "Hi Dad" when she sees him!

- LOVES water. Did I mention that already? This girl has no fear in the pool (and has dived in face-first several times already!)

- still eats like a champ... sort of. We've entered that special toddler phase where eating < playing. That said, Halle never passes up fruit (with the exception of pineapple, which gives her a nasty rash). This picture is Halle enjoying her birthday cake!

- drinks proficiently from a straw. And has sampled (and enjoyed) soda and tea. Please don't turn me into CPS.

12-month stats to come. We are wearing 18-24 month clothing, so I'm guessing she hasn't suddenly dropped off the growth charts!

9-month check-up!

Weight: 22.2 lbs (92%)

Height: 28.2 inches (68%)

In summary, we are getting shorter and fatter.

Maybe that's why the majority of my pictures lately feature Halle eating. Have I mentioned she is refusing baby food now? And being fed with a spoon? Yes, we are officially graduated to table foods!

Oh look - I found one picture where she isn't eating...

Look who's 9 months old today!

Halle is nine months old today. Where has time gone? Only three more months and our little baby will be a year old!

What has Halle been up to? She became a full-fledged crawler last month (exactly a week after she turned eight months) and is pulling herself to standing and "cruising" along the furniture. In the past week she has even started to "free-stand" by herself. Halle is also babbling like crazy and we are certain her first words will be here soon.

Halle also was sick for the first time. She's been hit with two colds in a two week period (with Mommy sick in between). Needless to say, our house has become a giant pit of humidifiers and used Kleenex.

Even with being so sick, Halle still is eating well. She's learned how to drink from a sippy cup and has three teeth now (two lowers and one random upper). Halle has also moved up to 18-month-size clothes and now has a new car seat. Our little girl is growing so fast!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Halle spent her first Valentine's day with Grandma Brown while Daddy and Mommy went to work. Here's a peek at the special outfit Daddy picked out and dressed her in for Valentine's day!
