happy birthday sweet adalyn!

how in the world are you a WHOLE year old?? we are so thankful for you.. you have brought such sweet joy to our lives!you are a master crawler and have no interest in walking anytime soon. you also haven't figured out how to climb the stairs.. and i am just fine with that:)you are such a stinker at times! you love to crawl next to something that is off limits and point to it while saying, "no-no". however, you then proceed to touch it and turn back to smile at me:) we have started popping your hands when you do something wrong, but it doesn't phase you. you just look at us, then look back at your hand:)you are growing and changing so much everyday! i definitely feel like you are more vocal than josiah and miley were at this age. as of right now, you say (on purpose) momma, dadda, doddie (doggy), bye-bye, ni-ni (night night), tay tu (thank you), uh-oh, no-no, lo? (hello?), be-be (baby).. i am sure i am forgetting some. you also still do how big is adalyn? and throw your hands/arms in the air for SOO big:)
and when we ask you, where's adalyn? you cover your ears (i think you mean to cover your eyes) and try to say peek-a-boo. you love to look at the baby in the mirror and wave and blow kisses to her.adalyn, you take a 1hr cat nap in the morning, and a 2.5- 3hr nap in the afternoon everyday. you also still go to bed at 7pm and will sleep solid until about 7:30-8:30 the next morning. Hallelujah! You love your bed and when i lay you down you usually smile, wave and say ni-ni to me when I'm walking out the door. you always wake up happy and i LOVE hearing you play in your crib so patiently until someone comes and gets you out:)
You only have 2 teeth (top right and bottom right) but you will eat just about any and everything!! and you are down to one bottle of almond milk at bedtime. you have mastered the sippy cup and LOVE to throw it when you are finished... and i might add, that you have an awesome arm! you wear 12-18mo size clothes and size 4 diapers. although you haven't been our friendliest or smily-est baby, you still have a super sweet disposition. however, you definitely have your favorite people, and you will NOT smile at someone that you are unsure of. you love to stare at strangers when they talk to you and then you get bashful and hide your face. but, you have also been known to scowl at people who talk to you when you are not in the mood:) you are such a momma's girl and love it! i hope you always think that i am the greatest.. ha! you love cuddling with daddy and laughing at your sisters and brother. clara and ellie are your bestest buds and you cannot wait to get your hands on little coleman!! poor levi is gonna need to be a tough one:)

we love you so much, sweet girl! happy birthday!! we can't wait to watch you grow!
