1 yesr old. Sometimes we still can't believe we have Bayden so it's crazy that she is 1 and going to be a big sister. Her birthday fell on Easter weekend this year. On her actual birthday, we visited the nicu to say hi. It wasn't as exciting as I thought it would be because the nurses who worked with her the most weren't working. We saw a few people though and left a card and treats. Bayden went to a few hours of daycare to celebrate with her friends and so I could get some final things done for her party. That night we went out to supper and Bayden got her first kids meal off the menu and some ice cream.
Saturday, family arrived to celebrate. We served her favorite meal - sandwiches. She was spoiled with clothes, toys, and lots of love. She loved her cupcake!
Sunday was Easter and we made it through church with her 4 cousins. It really was an Easter miracle. My dad said on our way to church, "If we make it through this, we can do anything."
At 1 year old, Bayden is still small - 18 pounds 11 ounces and 27 3/4 in. long. If you saw her eat, you would never believe it. She loves to eat (she got this from me somehow)! We love that she isn't picky either. She eats whatever we get her. She started walking 2 weeks after her birthday. She babbles like crazy, but not much makes sense besides "hi." Her doctor says she is all caught up though for being a preemie. We remember all that she went through coming early, but to everyone else, she is just another toddler. She is such a happy and fun little girl. She is very social and loves to meet new people and have them hold her. She goes to everyone. Sometime we will have to work on stranger danger, but for now it makes a lot of people's day to hold a cute little red head!
She has made us so happy this year and we couldn't imagine life without her.
