Happy Birthday Ms Emelia!!!

Emelia is 1 year old! She had the week of birthday celebrations going from one weekend all of the way through to the next. We had grandparents visiting, neighbors celebrating, friends over, went to a toy store and we traveled to see the boys in Madison as well since I had  a long weekend!

She is such a sweet, nice baby. That's the best way to describe her. She had gone from not crawling or really moving in the last month to crawling all over our entire house and has her favorite places mapped out. Under the computer desk, the dog's water dish, kitchen cupboards and inside peter's cardboard box playhouse. She got a rocking horse for her birthday from Grandpa Dan and can sit on it, make it rock back and forth and climb off on her own. She loves to push all sorts of toys around and it is obvious that she just can't wait to take off on her own two feet! She also loves to read books and knows how to turn the pages and lift flaps on the pages. You got some baby dolls for your birthday and you give them kisses and snuggle them. You are learning new things every day and when you do you know it! You squeal with delight as if you invented magnetism, gravity or water falling out of the faucet.

Your very favorite thing though is Scout. Or any dog for that matter. You see them and you instantly start to say "da dog dog dog" and reach out to pet it and get mad if we don't bring you close enough. Scout is such a good boy that he just rolls over and lets you crawl all over him.

For your actual birthday we went to Lark Toy's with Julia, Shana and Claire and then to Hy-Vee for lunch and we didn't just celebrate yours- we also celebrated Shana's as well! What a lucky  girl you are to share with our friend!

We love you so much little girl and we can't wait to see what this next year brings our way with you!
