Makenna just recently turned 1! We had a small Valentine's-themed party for her with some of our family. My buddy, Steve (we've been friends since middle school) was in town for the weekend and his family came too. They will hopefully be moving back to Colorado soon, which would be just perfect since they have girls that are only a month apart from our kids.
We had panini's for lunch and angel food cake for desert. Makenna also got to open her presents. She is such a lucky girl (especially for a girl who already has almost everything from her older siblings). She got a carseat from us (exciting, right?) and a purse, a doll, a swimsuit and a sprinkler ball toy for the summer, a new towel that Aunt Courtney made, bath toys, and a really cute summer outfit.
Here is a video of her with her cake. She loved the strawberries and didn't get too messy. We ended up cutting everything in smaller pieces to make it easier.
I can't believe that she is already 1. Her stats are 21.9 lbs (50-75%) and 30" (75%). She is a goer. She started walking about 6 weeks ago and now she tries to run to keep up with the twins. She always has been a momma's girl and is even more-so now... and she is still not sleeping through the night, but we are working on that. Her words are daddy, uh-oh (her favorite), hi, and mama. She can also make a lion (woar) and snake (sss) sound and she likes to try and sing-along to the ABC song. Such a cutie, we are so glad she is in our family.
