Macy turns One..

In only 6 days! It's amazing how one year can fly by. Even though she is getting cuter by the day, it still breaks my heart that she won't be a baby for much longer! Because she is so cute and funny I wanted to post a few things about her:

  • she loves to take baths
  • she loves to play with the faucet and hot and cold handles while in the bath. 
  • she also loves to suck the water out of her wash cloth while in the bath
  • she loves to hold the wash cloth that is full of water of the edge of the tub getting me all wet
  • she loves to eat finger food and won't eat much out of the jar (since she doesn't have teeth yet the food has to be easily gummed)
  • she is starting to like books and will sit in my lap and "read' with me for a minute or two at a time
  • she also likes to cuddle now, if only for a minute at a time (it sure melts my heart when she does)
  • still likes to suck on things (as evidenced by sucking on the shampoo bottle in the bath)
  • her hair is growing even though she still looks semi-bald
  • she loves our piano and points and says "uh! uh!" until we let her play
  • she loves to dances and dances any time she hears music (this morning someone was hammering downstairs and she even started dancing to that)
  • she still loves her binkie
  • she knows that her night light gets plugged into the wall and will try to plug it in herself
  • she is pretty good about getting all dressed up to go out in the cold weather
  • she is taking steps on her own if we help her off
  • her favorite toys are ones that light up and play music
  • she loves to push all sorts of buttons
  • she is beginning to love her dad more and want to play with him more rather than just me
  • she is social and loves to play and watch other kids
  • she points at things that she wants and says "uh, uh" until we get them for her
  • she loves to "flip" her binkie. This is especially funny because her binkie doesn't have a right or wrong way. Her dad also did this when he was a baby.

I could go on and on about cute little Macy, but I figure that's a good list to get me started. I'm so grateful to have her and she gives my life purpose, love, and happiness.

Here is another picture to make you smile.
