She turned one and the very next day stood up on her own and started walking.

Nixon had a family birthday party last Sunday. My brother was attending a medical conference in AZ and his family and my mom were all going with him so there went half of the party. I was worried Nixon wouldn't be happy with his party guests. But when I asked him who he wanted to invite to his birthday he just said, "stephanie" so I figured it would be fine. My dad, Lance and Stephanie, and Spencer came over for dinner. We ate papa murphys of course. After we ate we went outside and hit a pinata which the boys were thrilled about since there were no other kids to share the hitting with. We played some tetherball and then the mosquitos came out so we went inside to sing happy birthday. Nixon had one hand on his cheek the whole time and was all smiles. He wanted lots of candles so I put "happy birthday" candles, a number 3, and three tall candles on the cake. He loved it. He was a little confused opening presents. I would tell him who it was from before he opened them and it thought it meant that he should give it to them to open. He got lots of great stuff that should keep him plenty entertained. I think Logan felt a little left out since both of his siblings were opening presents at the same time. After the party Kyle told me that when Nixon opened his new razor scooter Logan made a face and went outside to get his razor to trade for the new one. Gotta love him for trying.
Exciting news!!This little baby of mine turned 1 today......and neither of us were thrilled about it. She absolutely hated having cake. She didn't take one bite. Just crushed it with her hands and then got mad that her hands were so sticky and then kept flinging her hands making the cake and frosting fly across the room. She's a big time eater so I was shocked.
I'm also shocked that I have a child that isn't walking before they turn one. She had very little desire to. It's all about begging me to pick her up.
She whine for me and tugs on me all day long. If I'm not around she is perfectly fine.
No, I never started sleep training. She still wakes up at least once at night. I have just been holding her for a minute and putting her back to bed instead of nursing her. Baby steps.
She is getting a little sassy.
She hates getting out of the shower.
She cries every morning when she wakes up and then is happy as can be once she really wakes up.
Still meows all the time.
She loves being outside.
Being at the baseball field for Logan's practices with a crawler is no good. filthy little baby.
She doesn't want anything to do with milk. Not sure what to do about that.
She is just the sweetest one year old ever.
She got a walking purring cat, dancing dog, and clothes for her birthday.
Opening presents always with one hand on me so I can't get far away.
