How Big is she ?
She is getting so tall.. and is just over 22lbs.. she is more tall then chunky.
What Birthday Party theme did you have for her?
Her theme was Minnie mouse./ pink
Her balloons were pink and white
Her decorations were princess.. pink.. and purple
Lots of food .. Pink cupcakes ... pink rose petals scattered everywhere .. pink floral pom poms
Was a blast. ... We usually take 2 months to plan our kids birthday.. we find it so important to show your kids that it is so important for family to be apart of the big moments.
Did you have a cake smash how did it go ?
Cake smash we did a day before.. and made sure we were prepared for the mess.. it was beautiful.. so beautiful .. those pictures we will treasure forever.
What was the best part of her birthday ?
The best part was seeing Isabelle's excitement when all the family came.. and all the hugs and kisses.. doing her smash cake privately before more family came over was such a highlight because izzy was so afraid of getting sticky and dirty .. it was so sweet to capture those moments..
How do you feel about her turning 1?
Isabelle has grown in to such a beautiful daughter.. filling all my holes in my heart where i never thought we would have a girl.. it has gone to fast.. but we can not wait for many more days to come.. and our journey has only started.. we have so many millions of things to do this summer..as a family.. we absolutely can not wait.. for those weekends.. just leaving the city behind for awhile and watching our babies run and enjoy the sun... roasting marshmallows laughing and going to bed way to late... family is huge to us..
How do you feel about the last year?
The time has gone by so fast.. faster than any of our boys. but i think as the days keep going.. i learn to live with the little moments that mean everything to me.. even its spending time laying with our kids to watch a 10 minute movie.. i am writing this on Easter weekend.. as the conclusion comes to an end.. it has been such an amazing weekend of just family.. between me and my sisters house.. celebrating birthdays and Easter.. just pure love.. no drama .. it has been such a beautiful weekend.
How is her brothers doing with her in the family ?
He is really taking a love to his baby sister.... he carries her around when supervised.. he tickles her as they both roll on the floor laughing.. he is falling fast in love with her and it is so beautiful . We are blessed !!!
He is adjusting a little harder at taking his position away as the only baby in the house.. it is so sweet that he really wants to be the baby of the family.. but we are working hard along side of him to show him the importance of love for all the kids in the house.. so we spend a little bit of extra time with him to make sure that he gets to a better place and more comfortable. We love him dearly and will help him in anyway he needs. He just has his mamas stubbornness
Is she walking ?
Not yet.. she has been working on steadying herself on different pieces of furniture but we think that she will only need a few months and then she will be able to be walking and chasing and running after her brothers.
How many teeth does she have ?
She has all her front teeth and is now getting all the back ones.. i cant get in to her mouth to count them lol.. since anything she shoves in her mouth she will bite down and wont let go.. she is very strong for a little girl .
How is her sleep at night ?
No.. sleep is still horrible.. mommy gets about 1-3 hours a night.. she got all her teeth by 6-8 months.. it was really fast and really hard since she was in a lot of pain and it really bothered us.. but it has come down where she is getting her back teeth and we are going through the rollar coaster again of sitting in her room when she is lonely.. cuddling her on our chest as she falls asleep.. she hates when we leave the room and will scream , so we usually sit in her chair which is super comfy for the nights that we need to sit with her until she is in a deep sleep.
other than that sleep has been hard the last month.. but you just kinda get kicked in to overdrive and your body survives.. i envy the women with one child who can nap whenever their child goes to bed.. i cant.. hubby is at work a lot.. different shifts... so most times it is mommy who is doing bath time.. cooking dinner.. but hubby and i do errands as a family and that really helps..
What is her favorite toy?
She loves pony's...bright colored toys.. the new toys that playschool just released she loves matching the blocks .. she loves watching videos beside mommy and daddy on our phones.. she loves the gummy bear song...
What is she eating?
She is a huge eater.. she loves food very much !!!! she can eat her brothers under the table sometimes .. defiantly, her younger brother .. they eat about the same and sometimes izzy eats more. Izzy is now getting to the point where she is really not liking baby food anymore.. she really is getting better tastes for food.. instead of the baby food items for other year olds. We have decided that by the time she is 15 months we will be transitioning her fully to 2% Cow Milk.. which will take her off her formula and off her pablum.. it doesn't fill her up anyways and we are happy that we have given it to her for a year and a half.
Pizza is her favorite!!! she loves meatballs.. bread.. cheese.. hot dogs not really.. she loves extra cheesy macaroni.. (which makes a massive mess in the kitchen lo), She loves brownies.. mashed potatoes.. stuffing.. sandwich meat she loves
She really loves all foods.. even veggies.. she loves peas but the only thing she doesn't really care for is a lot of meat products.. she isn't a fan of eggs.. mommy loves eggs but she really isn't in to it.. but she does like pancakes and waffles.. when we go out to eat she loves fries.. she loves yogurt but is slowly changing her pallet
Is their another sister/brother in the future?
Yes!!! We are open to having one or two more little ones.. depends on how life goes but we are defiantly open to more little ones.
Until the next Birthday
