A would-be stay at home mom working full-time as a teacher. I teach at my old Highschool, working side-by-side with my own teachers. I blog to keep the Texan grandparents updated and chronicle our life for future reference. (In other words, I don't have a real baby-book or diary.) Comments make my day.

1 year old

My baby is a year! This year has been crazy. We became parents, moved twice, started a new job, and learned the ins and outs of colic, the importance of tummy time and MSPI.

I could really go on and on giving lots of reminiscing stuff, but I'll just stick to the current stats and pics. If any of you are like me, you tend to skim when there is too much to read anyway!

At 12 months Samantha:

weighs in at 16 lbs

wears 9-12 month clothing

has gotten pretty good at her side army crawl

sleeps 11-13 hrs at night

naps twice a day for anywhere from 20-90 minutes

loves grahm crakers (calls them cookies)

knows roughly 20 signs (her favorite now being "dog" "movie" and "nurse")

walks while holding our hands

is obsessed with my parents' dog

has 8 teeth

has gone from eating a single cheerio in 3 bites to doing this:

is not afraid to try new foods, but is petrified of new textures on her feet and hands (can't find the picture to go with this one...)
Anyway, since she still isn't transitioning to sitting or walking on/pulling up on furniture, I've been very fortunate not to have to baby proof anything above 6 inches above the ground!
So...yea for me?
Happy Birthday my dear baby girl!!
