So soon after Jane was born we were walking around the small botanical garden that is behind the library a few blocks from our house and there were tons of beautiful lilies in bloom.
I said, "I will have to take Jane's 1st birthday pictures here!" (Jane's middle name is Lily)
Fast forward to Jane's first birthday and I went to check out the lilies and they weren't in bloom yet!
So I waited and a month later they were all in bloom so we took the girls over there to get pictures of Jane with the lilies.
Sure enough, the photo shoot went a lot like Alice's first birthday photo shoot (the one with the balloons that she didn't want anything to do with)
Jane was not interested in the lilies and refused to sit or stand near them.
Stephen would set her down in the lilies and she would immediately get up and walk away.
"Uh, what am I supposed to do with this?"
Those blue eyes kill me!
And we had to get some pictures of Alice too of course.
At her 12 month doctor's appointment, Jane weighed 20 pounds and was 29 3/4" long.
Alice was only 18 pounds and 28 1/2" at that age!
Judging by Jane's eating habits (she's a big eater and eats more than Alice sometimes) she may out grow her sister eventually.
She loves vegetables and proteins but I have yet to find a fruit she likes other than apples.
She is a really content and happy baby, or I guess I should say toddler.
She loves to cuddle.
She is always running around with Alice and loves playing with her.
When we try and get her to say "Alice" she says "Ahhhh"
On super rare occasions she will say "mama" but she has started saying "Hi!"
She is a lot of fun and I still can't believe she is 1!
