Birthday (Part Two) & One Year Checkup


Okay folks, this is going to be the last post for a while.  I really should be packing right now but I want to get this off my to-do list. 

I really have no super cute pictures from HJ on her birthday.  She did devour her cake but didn’t seem to want to smile while doing it.  Some friends came over and Halley was showered with lots of gifts!  Seriously, why didn’t anyone ever tell us that Fisher Price made toys?!?   Halley would have appreciated it.  :) 

Here are a few more from her parties.

We also went to the doctor this week for HJ’s annual checkup.  Here are her stats:

Height:  29 3/4 inches (10 inches in a year)  75%

Weight:  17.5 lbs (11.5 lbs in a year)  3%

Still takes 2 good naps a day and sleeps from 8pm to 8:30 am!  Bless her. 

She’s wearing 9-12 month clothes right now simply because they are long pants/sleeves.  If they had to fit her waist, her pants would actually be shorts.  I’m guessing by summer she’ll still be wearing 12 month clothes!  Also, the doctor predicts she’ll be in her infant carrier for at least the next 6 months, if not until she’s 2.  My sweet little munchkin.  Thanks to my family for her height and Randy’s sisters for her weight! 

Halley is starting to stand by herself more and more and I think she’ll be walking by Thanksgiving.  Stay tuned!

We’re on our final countdown here in Colorado.  Next Friday begins the trek across the country so prayers are appreciated! 

Much love from the Everettes in Colorado….
