Pennie is now one.  She turned one on February 20th.

**Small tears**

She really, really is such a sweet baby.  She is intensely loved by everyone in our home and we all just can't get enough of her!

Here's an update on what she's doing lately:

She still sleeps in our room, in her crib.  This week she started sleeping from about 10:30 PM to 5:30 AM, and I'm praising God for that! Truly.  I mean it! Of course, she wants to rock-and-roll before the sun is up, so I feed her and then hold her in our bed till she falls asleep again, and sometimes Daddy holds her too, just because he's like that and just because he knows I need sleep!! With sleeping that long at night, she no longer takes two naps during the day.  As long as she's still cheerful, the trade-off of her sleeping through the night is more than enough for me!

She weighs about 22 lbs.  She wears size 4 diapers and size 12-18 mth clothes, mainly dresses with leggings and swing tops with leggings. 

She stands up by herself.  She crawls fast, and everywhere! She can find me anywhere.  She doesn't seem to want to walk at all and when she is standing, she curls her toes in and looks down at her feet as if she hasn't any idea how they got there! I'm not worried about her walking.  She'll do it when she's ready.

She is such a lover! She kisses and hugs and snuggles and touches and plays with our hair.  She is a minister!

She likes to eat! She nurses still, about every 3 hours or so, sometimes not so much if she's busy.  She LOVES cucumbers and cheese and apples....she HATES avocadoes and is just starting to like bananas again.  She isn't really fond of mashed potatoes but likes roasted potatoes.

She still hasn't got tons of hair, but that's okay!

She's got at least 8 teeth....and it's been a bear for her to teethe! I think she's getting her molars....

When I ask her where each one of her sisters are by name, she'll look at them! She's so so smart!

She doesn't like headbands.  And I have to put socks on her with soft shoes, which I just don't happen to have, and we bought her some cute socks for her birthday but they've gone! Disappeared. Yuck.

She says "Ma-ma-ma-ma" all the time.  She can shake her head and looks hilarious when she tries to nod!

Anyways, that's an update on our dearly loved Pennie.  She is all and everything to us and we are so glad God allowed her to grace our home with her presence!
