1 year of Liv

Our little baby girl is no longer a baby! We are officially the parents of a toddler! Jarryd and I would both say that this has been one of the most amazing years of our lives! Liv has stolen our hearts and has made everyday more incredible! Her life has significantly enhanced my praise and worship of God... there are so many times where I am overwhelmed with love for Liv that I just start praising the Lord for allowing me to be her mommy! Looking back now I am almost thankful for the miscarriages we had in the early years of our marriage, while I would never want to experience that pain again, it has made me so much more grateful and appreciative of the life we have in Liv. I know what a miracle she is and I pray we never take that for granted! (Read more about our journey through multiple miscarriages here)

This month she learned to:
run everywhere... Lord help us
drink only from a sippy cup (Yay for no more bottles!)
officially eat real "big people" food
switch to whole milk
clap on command
share and steal... I guess they kind of cancel each other out
we are also officially weaning her from her paci... this has not been fun

Things she says:
Dada (Finally!!) Jarryd was so happy! 
and a million and one gibberish words

Dr. Audrey Rogers her pediatrician (She is INCREDIBLE)

the AutoNation comercial (She stops whatever she is doing to dance)
