The Benefits of Being 1 Year Old!

4 reasons why I am so excited that Sienna is 1 Year Old: 1) Sienna can face forward in the car now, leaving more room for my long legs 2) Sienna can drink whole is easier to make and cheaper than formula, 3) Sienna only really needs 1 nap a day, and finally 4) we can start the transition from bottles to sippy cups for (she drinks water out of a sippy cup but refuses to drink milk out of one...she actually drinks so much water that we have to cut her off!).

Today Sienna had her 12 month appt and she did great until it came time for the shots. The nurse made a comment that these shots hurt worse than the other shots and she wasn't kidding! Sienna screamed and screamed until we got to the car. Brayden didn't seem too bothered by the whole ordeal, thank goodness! The good news is that I got a good look inside her mouth while she was screaming and I could see parts of her 2 bottom molars! With these 2 new molars, she has a grand total of 10 teeth. Sienna was so exhausted on the way home that she passed out in the car. Here she is in her brand new Graco 3-in-1 carseat...facing forward!
Sienna's still a big girl! Here are her 12 month measurements:
Weight: 22 lbs 10.4 oz (75th %)
Height: 30 1/2" (90th %)
Head: 46 cm (75th %)

For comparison, here are her 9 month measurements:
Weight: 20 lbs 6 oz (75th %)
Height: 29 1/2" (95th %)
Head: 44.6 cm (75th %)

Here are some random pictures from the week:
Brayden takes his job as a big brother very seriously...he likes to feed Sienna. In fact, I think he does a better job feeding her than he does himself! The funny part is that if Chris or I try to feed her, she purses her lips and tries to hide her mouth. But when Brayden feeds her, she opens right up! Hmmmm...maybe I should try experimenting with food she won't normally eat!!!

Brayden received a new shipment of Disney books this week (we belong to the Wonderful World of Disney club) and as soon as I gave him the books, he sat right down to read them. I always thinks he looks so cute reading books!
