I took some pictures of Edyn this week in honor of her first birthday. And I'm too cheap to go have anyone take some. This one above of her, she looks exactly like me as a baby. I did a double take after I took it of her because she looks just like me. I should post a baby picture of myself at this age, the resemblance is crazy.

Isak and Lucy were very excited for Edyn's birthday. Especially Lucy who has a birthday coming up in a few weeks and everytime I would mention Edyn's birthday would respond with, "and Lucy's birthday?" They helped me decorate, make her cake, and wrap her present.
I attempted to make Edyn a polka dot cake with colored cake balls on the inside. It kind of turned out, probably would've worked better if I had used white cake mix instead of one from scratch. I elected to use what we had instead of making a trip to the store so it was a smorgasboard of random ingredients. In the end, Edyn didn't care and I didn't want any leftovers so it worked out perfectly!
*taking 5-6 steps at a time but still prefers to crawl everywhere
*LOVES Isak and can say/scream his name really well. He pays the most attention to her and plays with her a lot so I'm guessing this why she loves him so much versus Lucy who just takes her toys away all day. They will have their moments as well I am sure.
*Really likes music and will start to dance and shake whenever she hears a beat.
*Can say mama, dada, Isak, no, yea, bottle, hi, and probably more that we can't understand.
*Naps twice a day and sleeps all night. (YEA!)
*Takes a bottle of whole milk (hallejuia, this girl didn't take bottles til November. I almost cried I was so happy). Eats everything, really likes pears, peaches, bananas, applesauce, toast, eggs, chicken, taco meat, cooked peppers, macaroni, spaghetti, yogurt melts. I think she didn't like my potato soup.
*Still has her umbilical hernia that hopefully will go away once her abdominal muscles strengthen.
*Loves her mom and dad more than anyone. Such a sweet natured and happy little girl and we love having her in out family!
