Going all the way back to Memorial Day...we went to this place around the corner called the Natural Science Center It's like a zoo & we'd never been there before. We planned on going to the zoo that day (it's about 30 minutes away), but it was forecasted to rain. So we decided to go to the NSC, so we could get home quicker. We had a good time and plan on going back again.
Here are some pics...
We woke up the anteater...LOL
Laila had a professional photo session on her birthday. Here are some of those pics...
She started off nicely with the cake
Then....she got really into it (literally)
We had Laila's birthday party this past Sunday. The weather was beautiful and we had a great time!
Here are just a few (I don't want to overload you with pics)
Laila's personal cake
Video of Laila messing in her cake. I think she wasn't too interested eating it this time. She enjoyed clawing at it though.
The cake everybody else ate
She & I were soooo tired that we saved opening presents until the next day
Laila had her 12 month check-up yesterday. She is still in the 10th percentile at 18 lbs 4 oz, 28 inches long and 18.5 inch head. I was afraid she would've fallen off the chart, so I'm glad she is at least consistent. She's so petite, but I thought she would've been longer than that. She got her shots and cried so much harder than ever before. I think it's because she was sleepy. The ped gave me encouragement to keep trying with the milk transition. She said if I was truly ready to wean to eliminate one BF session at a time and give her milk in the same cup everytime, so she'll expect milk out of it. I love bfing, but I think I'm ready to wean. I bought a new Nuby cup with a straw (because the other Nuby sippy will leak if you tighten it where the tabs don't fit in the silicone nipple thing just right) and she drank about an ounce of milk from it with no problems. I guess I'll just keep trying.
~Thanks 3Daughters for my lovely siggy!~

Oh. My. Goodness. I love every single picture!!! She is getting so grown up!!!!!! Those birthday pics are just beyond priceless!!!!! I'm glad she had a good birthday, and a good checkup! Keep us posted on the weaning process!
She is so cute! I always like seeing her smile. We go to the NSC from time to time as well. Be careful about the "Spray Zone". hehe We haven't been out to the big Zoo since they opened up the new construction area so we've been talking about going out that way too.
