My BABY turned 1!

Jennilyn turned 1 on January 3, and I can't believe it's already been a year since she was born! She has been such a sweet baby and is turning into a terror 1 year old! She just wants to be down and have freedom, especially during church! Our Church starts at 1pm, so it makes for HORRIBLE Sundays so far. Jennilyn has started saying quite a few words: Mama, Dada, hot, bubbles, book, bottle, grandma (is actually ma) yesterday she got in trouble for spitting and Chris was telling her "Don't do that" and she said it right back to him. She has been sleeping through the night for a while! It's fabulous! She will even put herself to sleep if I lay her in her crib, something Jayden still has trouble with. She LOVES her brother so much. I love seeing them play together, when Jayden is nice. We have a new motto at our house! "Try NOT to make Jennilyn cry!" I think Jayden is catching on! She has started taking steps, but is not quite confident enough to just take off, although she really wants to!
Birthday's at our house are not very much fun lately! Jayden was sick on his birthday last year and Jennilyn was sick on her birthday this year! It makes for a very sad birthday! We had cake & Ice cream at my parents house and celebrated Aubrey's birthday too! Jennilyn wasn't excited about the cake at first, but she warmed up once she realized it was sugar!She finally took a bite and enjoyed it!Sadly it didn't last long enough!

My happy little girl! She ended up having a fun night playing with her cousinsNeed I say more?Opening presents! It's so nice to have a big brother to do it for her! We are so blessed to have her in our family!
We LOVE you Jennilyn
