1 year check up

Took the girls for their one year check-up yesterday, and other than all the shots, it went quite well!

Anna: 23lbs, 4 oz, 30" tall 75-90%
Natalie: 21 lbs, 28 3/4" tall 50%
Elisabeth: 21 lbs, 29 1/2" tall 50%

As you can see they are continuing to be great eaters- still have found very little they don't like. They love, love, love finger foods and feeding themselves, although it means a BIG mess for Mommy after. They have transitioned well to whole milk which is great (less expensive!).

They are developmentally pretty on target. Only Elisabeth is cruising (walking while holding onto things) at this point so the other two are a little behind on that. They are waving bye-bye, rolling balls, picking up things with their finger and thumb (every little tiny thing they find), playing peek-a-boo, chewing well (they all have 4-6 teeth) and saying/repeating a few words. None are standing on their own yet, although Elisabeth is trying.

Most of all they laugh easily and are the happiest and funnest babies ever (I am a little biased)!

Pictures from the girls' birthday party
They had so much fun and really went at the cake. Once again I can not post any writing by the picture.. I'll try to figure it out soon.
We can't believe they are already one. The year has flown by! They are so busy- crawling everywhere and already hard to keep up with. Elisabeth is cruising, but the others aren't trying to walk yet. I'm in no hurry, though, for them to walk. We have so much fun! Everyone always comments on how much work they must be, and although they certainly keep us busy- they are such a blessing. I love every minute of it!

We can't believe our little blessings are turning one today!

Anna, you have really developed such a personality. You love to laugh- even when you are all by yourself- and your laugh is the best thing to my ears. You love to watch everything and have so much to say. We love you and have so much fun with you!
Natalie, you are still so sweet and easy to be with. You are quick to smile and laugh. You have developed a little bit of an attitude- I think you realized you had enough of being a pushover between your sisters! You love your big brother and he thinks the world of you. We love you so much!
Elisabeth, you have been the go-getter and our little fighter from the beginning. You were not going to let being the smallest slow you down any. You are always on the move and interested in the next thing. It is so fun to see what you will be up to next! We love you!

I'm still having problems with the blog and can't post any writing by the pictures. The first are all Anna; then Natalie; then Elisabeth!
