Joey's Party and 1 year Appointment Wrap Up

So Joey is officially 1 and as I said in the last post, it started off with her being sick :(  She was feeling better by night time and enjoyed her 1st cake ever!  We didn't even bother stripping her down, and turns out we didn't need to!  She eats so daintily (is that even a word?).  This is the messiest picture we have, and it's not that bad!  Yay Joey :)

Here is her 2nd cake experience at Eagle's Wings Athletics where we had her party...we thought we would go ahead and take her shirt off in case she decided to go crazy on the cake, and instead, we only had to wipe her hands and her face!  It was funny because everyone was watching and waiting for her to dive right in, and she didn't!  The cake that Miss Holli made was so yummy and it was cool that Joey had her very own cake!  She loved the frosting...I made the cut in the cake so that she would realize there was more to it then frosting!

When we were opening some gifts, she started playing a game with her Aunt Vicky (the set of hands in the picture below).  Joey would pull out a piece of tissue paper and hand it back to Vicky in a sort of "no look pass" kind of way.  Vicky would quickly take it from her and Joey would grab another piece!  It was pretty entertaining, and you maybe just had to be there :)

This is Joey right before we were making her do back rolls on the mat she is holding on to.  She would roll down then pop her head up to see who was watching!  Super cute :)

The party was great, and we thank everyone who was able to come!  She got lots of great toys, books and tons of cute summer clothes!  She has worn a new outfit every day this week :)

Yesterday we had Joey's 1 year appointment at the doctor.  They checked her weight and she is 17lbs 12oz which puts her in the 4th percentile for weight, 27 1/4 inches tall which puts her in the 5th percentile for height, and her head circumference is 17 1/2 inches which puts her in the 29th percentile!  All her percentages went down from her 9 month appointment which our doc said was normal.  She said if she continues on the same growth pattern then she should be about 4'11" or 5' when she is full grown :)  I may have to teach her the joys of being a shorty!  Anyway, she did great in the appointment even after getting 4 shots.  The doctor said she looks great, and is a thriving baby who is developing normally, so that's good to hear! We didn't have any doubt, it's just good to hear from a medical pro that you are raising a thriving child!!

Well, that's it for now I guess!  Joey and Johnny are having their first daddy daughter weekend this weekend!  I will be attending the Women's retreat for our church at Pine Cove in Tyler, TX!  I know they will have fun, and I am so lucky to have a husband who is willing and in fact loves to take care of our daughter!  So everyone have a good weekend, and I will update you on any fun stories when I get back!
