One year and one week later

Aidan had a great one year celebration. Thank you to everyone who made it so special! She smooshed cake and played and generally had a good time. Aidan is busy walking with assistance and attempting to climb on furnature and playing with all her new toys. She's also using the word "Gawk!" to mean "go!" I think. It clearly means something to her. :-) Her obsession with hats continues and she's getting very good at stacking large objects (like rolls of toilet paper). She's loving bath time in the big bathtub and hates bed time. She had a great time playing with Grandma, who was here for a quick birthday visit. Aidan also started wearing shoes. That was an adventure the first time, but she seems to have adjusted.

Today was her one year check-up. I can't believe how big she is! Here are her stats:

Weight 21.7 pounds (70%)
Height 30.5 inches (90%)
Head 18.25 inches (70%)

The doctor said she looks great and is thriving. He also noted that kids who are early in their motor development tend to be a little slower in their language development, which matches what I've seen in Aidan. Some of her classmates have more than "mama" down and Aidan doesn't but she's going gang-busters on her motor development and problem solving. Maybe we'll have an engineer... :-)

Those are the major updates for now. Aidan's sleeping off her shots (4 this morning). She's good to go for another 3 months. I'll post pictures later.
