Kate: 12 Months Old

It's been a full year with Miss Kate and we can't believe she is a year old! 

It's been the best year with this little girl and watching her grow is so bittersweet but really gets more fun every day.

At her 12 month appointment, she is weighing right at 19 pounds and is 28 inches long. Still a little peanut on the growth chart but she is perfect! She is still wearing mostly 6-12 month clothes. 

Kate is bursting with personality. She is drama filled in the cutest ways and already such a girl. She holds up anything to her ear and pretends its a phone. Her little way of saying "hi" is the best! She is saying mama, dada, and "ni- ni" as she puts her head down when she's tired. She is still making the funniest little whistling noise that we all love so much. She's giving hugs and kisses and loves to snuggle. 

She is cruising fast around the furniture but still could care less about walking. I thought for sure she would be earlier than Will but it's not looking that way. I'm actually okay with it because I'm convinced that she'll just be my little baby forever. 

I think we have a little dancer on our hands. She loooooves music and stands on one leg like she's practicing ballet when she holds onto the couch or the coffee table. She dances at the sound of any tune and always with the biggest smile on her face. She also loves to pretend to talk on the phone. 

Books are a favorite in our house! Kate has started to crawl over to our book basket and picks out what she wants. The Pout Pout Fish is still the number 1 fave for morning story time with Mark. When she sees the book she says "blub blub bluuuuuub". Will has the entire thing memorized and loves reading it to her. 

Kate seriously loves her big brother more and more each day. They have the sweetest little relationship growing. She crawls into him with hugs, laughs at anything he does and gets so excited to see him, even if they've only been apart for five minutes.

We celebrated her first birthday with family and a few friends and it was the best day! She was loving all of the special attention and of course, her party dress! She loved her first bites of cake and it didn't take long for her to dive head first into it. 

It's been the very best year with our little girl and we love her more than we ever thought possible.

Happy 12 months and Happy First Birthday, Princess Kate!!!

  1. Can I ask where you got the headband that you swap out the bows on ? I'm expecting our first child in 8 weeks and she has tons of bows but no headbands to attach them to. Thanks! (Beautiful blog and nursery by the way)
