Look Who’s 1!!

Hanna turned one back on June 5th and I’m sorry that I’m jut getting around to posting the pictures. 
I just can’t believe that she’s 1 already!  Seems like just yesterday I was facebooking during my 21 hour labor – what else was I supposed to do after having my epidural?  You all wanted to know what was going on, right?  :-)
Hanna has gone from this:
To this:
At her one year check-up she weighed in at 17 lbs and was 28 inches long.  A handful more inches and she’ll pass Caty up, who’s at about 32-33 inches.  I’m so looking forward to reaching that 20 lbs mark, so we can turn her around in the car seat.  She’s crawling everyone, pulling to a stand with support and just starting to try to stand up, by herself with no help.  She’ll take steps when we’re holding her hands, but really isn’t even cruising around much.  Which I think is fine because once she starts going, she’s not going to stop.  She’s perfectly content on playing by herself – she’ll take off down the hall and sit either in the hall, Caty’s room or her room and play with whatever she can find.  Caty still has a hard time playing by herself.  Hanna can say a few words – mama, dada, bubbles, sissy, kitty and tonight, while outside with Scott, they saw a grasshopper and she kept saying bopper.  Too cute!
We had a wonderful party with mostly family but a few close friends.

She loves Elmo!
Reading her card
Me and my little ladybug
The OHH face!!
Not too sure about the cake
She got a little freaked out, not sure if it was the warm weather, all the people singing Happy Birthday to her or what, but she tried the cake and started crying.  She got frosting all over herself and wanted me to hold her, so she’s now in a new dress. 
I think that I’d rather have a ritz, thanks.
Testing it out
I think I’ll have some cheese those.
Cheese and cake go together, right?
She finally got into it, but notice, the cheese is still in her hand.

Happy Birthday Hanna!! You are so right Jamie, it does seem just like yesterday that you were announcing you were pregnant, let alone going through labor! You did a great job on her party...love the theme and decorations.

Oh, my, goodness. Hanna is super extra adorable in her birthday party outfit! What a cute party, and great family pictures! Love the Hanna flower pots too - so cute!

Mandy said...

I can't believe she is 1 already! Oh how the time goes by. I love the flower idea with the months on it. Your so crafty!

Kristie said...

Love the Hanna flower pots...they are so cute. I never thought of doing that. I might have to steal your idea for Jalinn's 1st first birthday.

Happy 1st Birthday Sweet Hanna! Time sure does fly! She is so beautiful in her birthday dress! Great party theme - adorable cake, and I love the flower pot pictures! Beautiful family photos! Love the "OHH" picture too!
I pulled out Simon's 12 month clothes that I packed up in January (he still wears 12 month pants/shorts) for Jude the other day, and I can't believe how close they are getting in height and weight now. It won't be long before Caty and Hanna are sharing clothes!

Hanna bug! How sweet was this entire party? I think you did a great job on the cake! It actually looks super yummy! I love the idea of putting her pictrues on the flowers as she grew! Such a good idea! She is just the cutest little thing-love the OHHHH face. So cute. I cannot believe she is one either. I remember going to Babies R Us looking at little frilly girlie socks!
Cannot wait to meet you and Caty next week!
