Happy Birthday, Baby Girl!


Today is my daughter's 1st birthday. Where did the time go!? I cannot believe what a funny, beautiful little child she's grown to be. My husband's work was nice enough to let him work from home today so that he could see her (because usually he has work and school and doesn't see her Tuesday and Wednesdays). While he was taking a lunch break we had cake and opened presents. What precious moments these are for us parents!! Pictures to come. We'll be having a party with a few of her friends later this week.

Happy Birthday, AJ!!

Now if only she will start sleeping through the night! We were doing so well, and then the last week or so she has suddenly become super clingy and just wants to be held or play all night. Last night we were up from 12:30am-4:30am because she was just wired! I think it's time to consider cutting down to one nap a day instead of two. Drats.

This is one of the many ways I know that God is listening. He has heard me tell my coworkers, teachers, colleagues and friends over the years that I thrive on a good challenge. AJ is that stubborn challenge! Every day I feel so blessed to have her in my life that I can't really complain about anything, even if she doesn't let me sleep!

  4. Happy Birthday sweet girl!! She is soooo adorable! That is really bizarre, because Nate was up from 11:30-3:30 the night before yesterday. Were they communicating telepathically? Nate's sick, but still, it was VERY bizarre. You know, around 12/13 months Nate started exploding with new tricks and skills and he was very clingy and his sleep was even worse than normal. I hear it's pretty common. I bet you it passes after a couple of weeks (if not sooner)!

  9. Yay! Happy birthday...a few days late. I hope she's sleeping better. I wouldn't give up on the 2 naps yet. Babies get clingy when they aren't feeling well, something in their schedules have changed, or there is unusual commotion in their lives. Hopefully, for your sake, she'll hang on to the second nap til she is closer to 18 mos.

  10. Happy birthday, AJ!!! That first birthday is so exciting! I'm so glad you got to spend some of together as a family, so important. Hopefully the sleep thing will work itself out. Avery didn't start sleeping through the night until she was about 1. Hang in there!
