Annie is One!

Ann Elizabeth turned one last Sunday on July 24th and we celebrated with a little hot pink and zebra party. She had a fun time at her party and did eat a little bit of cake...not much mind you, too messy, but enough to say it was her birthday cake.
Because of the other kids and the history of severe food allergies, we start new foods with Annie very very slowly, and up until now she has not been exposed to cow's milk, so I made and decorated her cake with no milk, no eggs, and no nuts. She tolerates soy fine so we made substitutions using soy milk and the cake was great.
Annie has not had her 12 month checkup yet so I"m not sure on all the statistics but here are a few facts about Little Sis at 1 year.

Annie wears some 9 months clothing and some 12 months.
She has 6 teeth and 2 more cutting through (four on top two on bottom)
She is very petite, and wears a size 3 diaper.
She still doesn't sleep through the night.
Is still exclusively breastfed, and also is starting some table foods. (PLain veggies, cereals, crackers, etc)
Did get to try out a plain hamburger from McDonalds and though it was delightful!
Says Mama, Dada, Bubby, Kitty, something that sounds like Lilly, git, byebye,
Is very timid and tenderhearted
Is scared of many animals and several stuffed animals.
Looks very similar to Noah at 12 months but is much smaller than he was.
She still has a few issues with eczema on her elbows, wrists, knees, but not bad at all.
She is a generally happy sweet baby, and loves to be held and rocked and packed and spoiled!
Loves her brother and sister and is very interested in everything they do.
Loves Daddy but is very much a Mommy's girl at heart.
