Bradleigh's 1st Birthday!!!

Bradleigh turned 1 on the 22nd!! 

Here are a few pics of her along with a description of what's she has been up to recently (the pics and the tidbits are not related in any way...just wanted to put them together in 1 post):

- Bradleigh can now walk with ease...she has been able to do so since she was 11 months. 

- She LOVES to swing. She will laugh really cute if you bump her feet as she get close to you.

Our little Valentine

- She really wants to talk and I think she will probably be an "early" talker. She makes all kinds of sounds and tries very hard to mimic what we are saying to her.
- She is hard headed and a little of a Diva. She will cry Crocodile Tears if you tell her "no." I mean, mouth wide open, tongue quivering, crying like you've never seen. (it's really cute...most of the time).
 Introspective Bradleigh
(she had just woken up from a nap and wasn't too keen on going to the park)
Miss Priss in her Birthday Tutu!!

This was on Valentine's Day and Momma wanted a pic of her in her new jammies (sorry it's sideways...don't know how to rotate it)

- In the last 3 days she has started throwing tantrums when she doesn't get her way. These are still relatively rare, but she throws herself down on her tummy (kinda strange) and kick her legs straight back while she looks up at you crying.

- Now, don't let me fool you -- this girl is VERY SWEET, has a smile that LIGHTS UP the room, and is in complete and total infatuation with her Nana and Mimi. She can be very snuggly at times, and others she does not want to be "held down" and will kick so you will let her run and play in the floor. She is a hoot

This is the Birthday Tutu Aunt KK (Kaysi) bought cute!!!

- She is bowlegged when she walks and if she is unsure about her footing she almost waddles as she walks. She takes tiny steps and shuffles her feet. It is AWESOME!! Makes me smile everytime I seee her do it.

- Now that she has hit the 1 Year mark, we are introducing her to MILK.  We give her 4 ozs of milk and 4 ozs of Toddler Formula for each bottle.
- She has been eating "solids" for about 4 months now.  We started with baby food, and have gradually moved her up to more and more "solid" food.  She is now to the point where she can just about eat anything, but of course, our kiddos only get the BEST ...organics, fruits, veggies, and the like, but every once in a while she will get some chopped up chicken nibbles.  :)
I think that's about it for the updates...Happy 1st Birthday Miss Bradleigh!!  You are a joy and a blessing to our family!!   Love you -- Momma and Daddy
