Growing Little Girl

It had been three months since we last took Kaelyn to one of her well-child checkups, so you could say we were pretty excited to take her to her 12 month check up this morning to see how much she had grown. That's the best part about seeing how much weight she's gained and how much taller she is. Over the past month or so, we knew Kaelyn had our arms were getting more tired the longer we held her....however, we didn't know that she had gained over 3 1/2 lbs and almost 2 inches!! Wow!! She sure is growing!! :) She is now 20 1/2 lbs and just over 28 inches tall! Whenever we come home from a checkup I always enjoy taking a look at my own baby book to see how similar she is in size to what I was at her age. Today was no different...I came home and opened up the book. I was less than an inch taller than her and only a couple of oz heavier. :)

Also....Now that Kaelyn is at least 20 lbs and a year old we can officially, and legally, turn her carseat to face forward. Scott has been looking forward to this for quite some time he likes to look at Kaelyn in the rear view mirror and be able to talk to her. Now he can do that more easily, as she'll be able to see him and talk back to him too. I think Kaelyn will enjoy car rides a lot more now. She'll be able to look forward and see the world in front of her. Before it hardly took two minutes before she was sleeping....i can't say I blame her....staring at the seat the whole time must be kind of boring. :) I guess this is just one more thing that signifies our little girl getting older and is "officially" 1!
