Baby G


Our favorite little redhead turned 1 on Sept. 3. It's a tradition in my family to have a big first birthday party, so that's exactly what we did. Gina is the cutest most adorable little girl I could have ever hoped for. I feel so blessed to be her mommy and while it makes me a little sad too, I am very excited to see her grow and experience the person she will become.
Here are a few facts about Gina

She almost always has puckered lips when she is talking.. so much so that I call it her signature look.
She says about a dozen words and can pretty much copy any word you try to teach her.
She LOVES and I mean LOVES babies.. real or dollies, doesn't matter. She almost had a heart attack when we went down the dolly isle at Target the other day. She was screaming, "bebe! bebe!" "mama! bebe!"
She loves taking trash OUT of the trash can.
She is VERY demanding and knows exactly what she wants and when she wants it. Our 2010 household motto is "What baby wants, baby gets"
She is tiny.. around 25th percentile for height and weight.
She loves buster, our cat, and tries to climb on him, pull his tail, and pick him up.
She loves to kiss and be kissed and loves to blow kisses.
She is constantly walking around the house talking gibberish and dropping toys here and there along the way.
She tries to hang with the big kids, but usually ends up being knocked over, hurt, and crying.
She wakes up every morning around 3, yelling, "mama! mama! mama!" for about 20 minutes then goes back to sleep until 6.
She loves to eat and nods in approval when something yummy is placed in front of her.
She is a mama's girl through and through, and I wouldn't have it any other way!
We love this baby SO MUCH and are excited and thankful for every moment we have to spend with her.
Happy Birthday Gina!
