one year old
happy birthday my dear baby dahlia. she is one today. we had a fun day. her aunt christina and cousin zena came over to help us celebrate. they brought their dog roxy. roxy had lots of fun running around the house. mason loves the puppy.
i really wanted to bake a cake for today, but i could just picture myself eating all of the leftovers and decided to buy tiny desserts instead. dahlia loved her little fruit tart. she ate all of the fruit. i was impressed.
we took her to her one year doctors visit two days ago and he told us we could start giving her whole milk. how crazy. we haven't tried it yet. i really want to ween her from breastfeeding, but i just couldn't start that on her birthday. we will start tomorrow. somehow i think it will be harder with her than mason. she seems more attached.
she is now 20 pounds 10 ounces, and 27 inches tall. that puts her at 25% for weight and 50% for height. she seems to be changing so much. she babbles all the time. i just love her adorable voice.
