Brooklyn turns 1!

Oh my! My baby is 1!  We had a Winter ONEderland themed party.  I made her a blue and pink tutu to wear and it turned out really cute.  I can't believe how fast she's grown and I live to look back at all of her photos and see how much she has changed.  I can't remember what life was like without her and can't wait to see her grow and keep learning!

This past month she:

Is finally starting to sleep through the night 100%!
Breastfeeds 4x a day.
Wears 6-9 month clothes, but starting to transition to 9-12 month.
Is loud! 
Sats "mama" and "dada" all the time.
Cries when she doesn't get her way.
Hated meeting Santa!
Walks!  She took her first steps for daddy.
Gets jealous when mommy holds other babies.
Loves her new walker from grandma and stuffed animal from aunt Lisa.
Is getting more independent.
Waves to everyone!
