Macy update at one year old

What is our one-year-old-who-thinks-she's-two-years-old, Little Miss Macy, up to lately? Well, she is walking and going everywhere and getting into everything. She tries to run if you chase after her, she tries to kick balls or whatever else is in her way, she dances when she hears music, and she climbs on everything she can get her little legs up on. She took her first step at 10.5 months and has been going non. stop. ever since. It's so weird to me sometimes because I hear about 13 month olds who are just beginning to walk, and here Macy is owning the place.

She is blabbing up a storm and quickly learning new words. Here's her vocabulary so far:

  • bye-bye
  • mama
  • dada
  • nana (banana)
  • momo (cat.. our cat's name is Moby, but we call him MoMo)
  • momo (Elmo)
  • daw (dog)
  • baw (ball or balloon)
  • no/no-no
  • uh-ohhh!
  • bubba (bubble)


  • num (for "naam," which means water/sippy cup)
  • bah! (for "bai!" which means "let's go!")
  • gai (chicken)

Sign Language (she doesn't really know how to use these properly, but if I say the words, she can sign them)

  • eat
  • more
  • all done

She went to her one-year checkup a few weeks ago, and is average for height and weight, at 21 pounds and 29 inches. She is wearing a size 3 diaper (size 4 at night) and size 12 month clothing, with some 18 month stuff here and there, and a size 5 shoe.

And speaking of clothing, I have been loving shopping for her some spring/summer clothes - sundresses, t-shirts and shorts, and swimsuits - eep! We finally got her a little pair of sandals too, which I love. They're the white Mooshu sqeakers with the little slots for interchangeable bows! That way, she can wear the same pair of shoes, while switching out and wearing coordinating/matching bows! Needless to say, I've done a little shopping on Etsy for some bows... and thinking about learning how to make them myself.

She knows where her hair, ears, eyes, nose, mouth, belly button, and toes are.

She loves to play outside, which we're doing more of now with the nicer weather, and still loves to play in water either during her bathtime or at the little water fountains we've taken her to at Dogwood and Renaissance (although it's still *just* a little early for outside water play). She still sleeps about 12 hours a night with a two hour mid-day nap, and will play quietly in her crib for the longest time after she wakes up (she likes to throw all her little stuffed animals overboard). She is eating almost completely table food now, and still takes three bottles a day - morning, pre-nap, and night. I know it's about time to wean her from the bottle, but... I don't think I'm ready to. :( She's my BABY still and is growing up way too fast!

So that concludes this edition of a Macy update! Time to go make that marking on her new wall growth chart...

Hello Spring

Last Thursday evening, we decided to go to the park and let Macy run around. But at the last minute, I thought it would be a good time to get some Spring/Easter pics, so I put her dress on, grabbed her basket, threw in some Easter eggs, grabbed my camera, and off we went.

I had only gotten a couple of pictures on the normal setting, and somehow my camera got switched to the color swap setting, which is currently set to swap out green for a pinkish color. I did not even realize it had gotten switched, but I thought some of the pictures turned out amazing, and it gives them sort of a vintage-y/dreamy type feeling to them (or at least that's what I think anyway.. I do have sort of a different 'taste' when it comes to some things, hehe).

(love love love this one)

(and this one)

(and love love love this one too)

These next few are just some I had taken at my parents' house when we went over on Easter day.

And here she is with her Easter basket that she got when we got home Sunday evening!

And as usual, more pics on facebook!

Goodbye Winter

The snow has melted, the sun has come out, and winter has faded away! I know it's a little late, but here's a little re-cap of some of our winter highlights that I don't think I ever posted on the ole blog.

We celebrated Daddy's birthday!

We sent Christmas cards.

We celebrated Christmas.

We played in the snow.

Macy took a nap... in the snow.

And Burin went snowboarding!
