One Year Older and Wiser Too!

One year old!

My little escape artist, if the door (front or back) is open she is gone..no fear :)

Her in the birthday girl shirt
Done with the cake...yummy!
The other two loved her birthday, they sang "You had a birthday Shout Hooray" all day!!

She is one now, I cannot believe it! This first year has gone by the quickest for sure. Lorelei is just over 26lbs and is 32 inches tall, yikes! She wears 18 -24 months now, crazy to me.
She is a busy bee. She walks everywhere all the time. Loves to climb up and down the stairs, unless she is being lazy then she sits at the top and cries until I get her :) So cute, sometimes. She loves to eat or drink whatever you have. She is getting really good at signing "all done". We usually only do one or two signs with the kids, she picked up on it really well. Instead of throwing food on the ground when I give her more, she usually signs all done to me. That says nothing of the food already on her tray which she throws about the house at will :) She babbles along to books as you read or if she is laying on ground reading to herself. She is starting to climb. She loves to climb the kids picnic table in the yard and then stand on it, so unsafe.. She is almost up on the couch. Her bed is right by the light switch in the room. Now when she gets up in the middle of the night she turn the light off and on. Everyone loves it ;) Time to move the crib around.
Jackson and Abagayle are such great helpers. They love to play with her...most of the time. They always try and make her laugh when she cries, if she doesn't stop crying it's "mom will you make her stop, it's too loud" She does have a set of lungs.

Here are a couple 30 sec. videos of Lorelei's 1st birthday. We did a small party at home, in between school and work for Brandon. The kids loved it!

First Day of School - Jackson

He had his first day of kindergarten today, tear... Dad took him in to the school to his class. Brandon said he was so excited to get to his class. They have to wait in the cafeteria until the teacher comes to get them. He found his little table with his name on it, so cute. Brandon said he was already making friends. I think we will walk him in for the week or so, then move up to the curbside drop off. I don't know if I am ready for that. At preschool it was curbside dropoff but to a person who walked him, so different then get out and find your way :)
Abagayle starts preschool in about a month, she cannot wait to go back. Jackson is in AM and Abagayle will be in PM, a little time with mom each day.
