It's official. Elena no longer xWeeks old or xMonths old. When people ask how old she is, I can just say a simple, sweet, "One." I'm so excited about it. And I'd like it to go on record that she will be One until she is one and a half, and she'll be one and a half until she is Two.
I'd like to take this blog posting to thank everyone who was kind enough to share Elena's party with her, and even kinder to bring her such lovely gifts. She had fun playing with her new toys through the evening on Sunday and all day Monday. I can't wait for her to get the chance to watch all of her great new movies!!
Yesterday she had her 1 year well baby visit with Auntie Jane (aka Dr Hess). All went well. She got four shots (ouch), and was cleared to eat all kinds of foods (except peanut butter), and drink whole milk -- and she got her first glass of ice cold whole milk as soon as we got home!! I'm pretty sure she thought it was great, maybe even the best ever. Though, she did sign for milk later in the night, and when given a nice cold cup of the creamy goodness, she pushed it away and pointed to her bottles. A new battle has begun.
Her stats for those interested: 18lbs 6ounces (10th percentile), 27.5" tall (10th percentile), 18.5" head circumference (90th percentile).
(P.S. I'm going to put her pictures on a disk tonight and upload them to the web from work tomorrow. )
