Could it be possible that my sweet baby girl has actually been with us for an entire year? It's been a truly wonderful year in so many ways, and I feel like I've really enjoyed her first 12 months of life. I want to remember exactly the way she is right now.......At her one year check up she was in the 75th percentile for length and the 25th percentile for weight. She still just has two teeth on the bottom but you can see four breaking through at one time on top! She's not walking but she stands up in the middle of the room all the time. She says several words but her favorite by far is "uh-oh," which she says over and over as she plays the drop game. She can put away a whole container of blackberries in one sitting like it's nothing--she loves fruit!! She loves her bath--she practically lunges into the tub when I turn on the water, and she arches her back to pitch a fit when I get her out. She loves her daddy--I don't remember the boys being this attached to him this young. She loves her brothers--she thinks they are hysterical and belly laughs at them often. They are so incredibly sweet to her and play with her better than I could have ever imagined. She doesn't love riding in the car, but she is so much easier to shop/run errands with than the boys were--she's actually okay to stay in the stroller/cart! She seems to love people and being center of attention. We usually call her "Colli." She's just been such a happy, even-keeled baby and I've enjoyed every minute I've been blessed to have with her. I meant to post these earlier, but here are some pictures:

The four Boys in front of the train!
Here are the boys with the Train Conductor!
Nana and the boys on the Lemon Twist!Saturday afternoon we went to the Dixie Stampede! I don't have many pictures, but here's one of the boys with one of the cowboys! We had a great time!!!
There was a hole in the ground outside our cabin, so the boys started filling it in with leaves. They spent forever one day just jumping and playing in the leaves, cracking each other up!

On Thanksgiving Day we went to my aunt and uncle's house and spent time with all my family! They live on a farm, so the boys got to go for a ride on four-wheelers, a bulldozer thingy, and a "mule." Of course they have both added "four-wheeler" to what they want for Christmas! I have to apologize in advance for the number of pictures!!!
