car seats and cars

Liv had her 12 month check up the day before her b-day party (terrible planning on my part) and she's doing great!

She's still in 25th percentile for height, but now has dropped down to 5th for weight. The doctor wasn't worried at all. She is developing normally, and he said it was common to not gain as much weight as usual since she's now walking and moving around so much. I was a little sad because she's only 17 lbs. which means she's 3 whole pounds away from getting to have a front facing car seat :( Hoping that by her next appt she'll be 20 lbs and we can kiss the little baby back facing seat goodbye! She seems way too old for that baby seat to me, but safety first I guess ;)


She had a fun little party on Saturday, of which I don't have a ton of pictures. Luckily my sister took some, so I'll have to get them from her and put them up. Liv has LOVED playing with all her new toys today :) I love her new blocks because now I have something to play with when she needs me to be on the floor with her.

Here is a video of her playing with her new car:

And one more for fun:

don't worry, Halle is 18 months old and still weighs 17 lbs! What a cute birthday girl, they grow up so fast!

Thanks for the sweet videos . . . love getting to see that girl in action!! She is precious.

And by the way, NONE of my kids weighed 20 pounds on their first birthday . . . well, except maybe Caleb -- I forgot that he was pretty hefty.

Love you guys!

So fun to see her playing with her b'day toys! She is so cute and way smart! I love how the doggie says "yeah, yeah" and when you asked if she had a b'day and if she loves momma, she answered "yeah" to both! What a girl!
love,
