One Year Stats

Tori Kathleen Handley

Age: 1 year
Weight: 18 lb 13 oz (20th percentile)
Height: 28 1/8 in (30th percentile)
Head Circumference: 18 in (60th percentile)

This girl is growing up more and more every day. She can free stand for minutes at a time, is cruising all around the house, and is so, so close to walking. She just has to decide that it's her idea. She only has two teeth, but is working hard on getting a few more. She has said bye-bye to her bottle and formula, and is now using a sippy-cup (and occasionally a regular cup) to drink cows milk. Tori loves to eat anything she can feed herself. She is very independent and loves to explore and get into EVERYTHING! If there is something she can't get into on her own, she will point to whatever it is she wants and squeal. I can't believe my sweet baby is almost gone, but I just love the spunky little toddler she is turning into.

Happy, Happy Birthday, Tori Girl!

Tori turned one year old on March 13th! I know, I can't believe it either. We had a fun, little birthday bash with grandpas and grandmas and aunts and uncles. Thanks to everybody who came to celebrate with us!

The cake. Before.

And the cake after.

Notice how clean Tori's face is. She licked a bit of frosting off her finger, but was otherwise uninterested in eating. She did have a good time mushing and smashing, however.

Tori, opening her presents . . . Let me rephrase that: Tate, opening Tori's presents.

Opa and Oma gave Tori a baby doll that she became immediately attached to. She didn't want to put her baby down on all day. It is so cute to watch her cuddle, rock, and pat her baby.

She figured out how to push around her Walk-n-Ride toy without having to put down her baby. Smart girl.

Tori with all of her loot. No, we didn't just strap her down so she would hold still. She actually received that stroller as a gift . . . and if it happens to conveniently restrain the child so she sits still for a picture, fabulous :)
