Belle is 1!

I can't believe that my baby is now a 1 year old. We went to the doctors yesterday and she got 4 shots (really sad) but we also found out she has grown a lot, YAY! She is now 21 pounds (20 lbs, 15.5 oz to be exact - the scale kept flipping between the two so I say 21 pounds). She is almost 29 incles tall (28 3/4 inches). That puts her in the 40th percentile for both height and weight, which is great since she has pretty much been in the 10th percentile since birth. For Belle's birthday we had a Minnie Mouse party. We had mostly family and a friend or two there.

We had some cute cupcakes that were red frosting with white polka dots, a white fondant bow, and black fondant ears.

Dont mind my closed eyes (Jarod and Belle look great). I think its funny how it looks like Jarod has mouse ears from the "E" that is behind his head.

She got some cute little baby crocs from Aunt Carol. She also got a little ride on car (from Grandma and Grandpa Yeates), a toy that pops balls into the air (from Uncle Bart, Aunt Kellie, and the boys), and a singing mailbox (from Jake, Marlys, and the twins). She got some more books, a puzzle, Candyland, and a Mickey Mouse movie from Jarod and I. She loved all of her presents and we are so glad the party was fun for everyone!

Belle loved that we gave her a whole cupcake to eat by herself.

We spent Christmas with Jarod's family in Chewelah. It was fun to spend time with everyone and watch everyone open gifts. We also got to be part of our nephew, Ewan's blessing.

Jarod got what he has always wanted. A huge knife! Thanks Jim!

More Christmas

Belle got a cute stuffed polar bear from Grandma and Grandpa Crisp and she loved to snuggle it.

Jarod found one of his favorite toys when he was little, a xylophone.

Belle just wanted to eat the mallets.

And more Christmas

Belle really started to understand about opening presents. She was so cute-she would rip a chunk of paper off and throw it to the side, than rip another chunk and so on.

She got some cute little wheel pals of farm animals.

You can tell she liked them.

She also got a little piano that she loved playing. Belle also got some books, a couple of Singamajigs (they are hilarious toys that sing when you push their tummys and they can sing together), a stuffed polar bear (from Grandma and Grandpa Crisp), a baby dolly (from Grandma and Grandpa Yeates) and a toy with blocks that are different shapes that you fit in the right hole (from Grandma and Grandpa Yeates). Jarod got a shop-vac and I got a new wireless copier, scanner, printer. We got a bunch of new DVDs, new pocket knifes, some clay pigeons and a rifle target, and a quilting template and chalking marker. We also got a GPS and a spa treatment from his office party!
