Cheers to you, Julia, on your 16 month birthday!

Another month has slipped by. Actually a whole year has slipped by when you look at these bath pictures from February 22, 2007

My dear sweet JoJo, you are still full of personality. You are starting to put on this silly grin when I ask you to smile for a picture (and sometimes you do it just at the sight of the camera). You've spent the last two weeks fighting a cold and pink eye. You're a tough cookie though and are on the mend. When you had your finger pricked last Friday to check your hemoglobin, you didn't cry. In fact, you didn't even blink or change your expression. Yesterday when a boy stood on your finger you just looked up at him, waiting for him to step away. (I thought for sure he was right next to your hand since you didn't cry out. Sorry baby girl.) At 29 pounds you are in the 90th percentile. Only 5 more pounds to catch your brother! It's been so fun to dress you in tights and put two bows in your hair this month. Your favorite toys are puzzles, backpacks, and pacifiers. At school you can't get enough of the slide or the songs during circle time. It took 15 months for the word 'no' to come out of your mouth and now in the past week it comes out clear as day. You also have started shaking your head 'no'. I'm sure someday I won't think it's cute, but that day hasn't arrived quite yet. You still love story time and are constantly bringing me books to read to you. During car rides you like to dance and be silly with your brother while you listen to music. Now that you're practically running you are joining in on the after dinner laps that Sammy and Daddy take around the house. There's never a dull moment with you around. It's one of the countless things I love about you.
Happy Birthday my sweet angel. Mommy loves you very, very much.

Since it's a birthday post,
I thought I'd through in a picture of her birthday bath.

Happy 16 months, Julia!!!

It's amazing how different, but also how SIMILAR she looks in the two February bath photo sets. Wow.

She is really a cute little girl!
I went back last week and looked at old pics. I'm always blown away by how fast they grow up!
