Another Playdate

 Tuesday, we had another playdate with Mj and his mom. This time they came to our house. Here's Keira waiting at the front door.

She was so excited when they pulled up.

They went right to each other and shared a hug. Seriously, how cute is this?!

and of course, Keira spotted me with the camera.
 

There is a new addition in our home

And I love it already. It was delivered a day early and I had the box open in less than 5 minutes. Set up in 2 more. Obviously, Doug will be securing it better, but for now it works. The North States Supergate Deluxe Decor Metal Gate.

It is by the same company, North States, that made our other one (check it our here) so the mechanism work the same way (push button, lift gate, open). It does have a few extra bonus' though. Like being able to open completely on the wall hinge. The best part? The walk-through is nice and wide (25.5 inches). Perfect for carrying laundry baskets through.


See? And just like the other one, when you open it all the way, it stays open (self-closing otherwise). Love. Love. Love.

What did I do to deserve this?

1 year old and already this girl has gotten into so much. And we've added more to the list. While I was in the bathroom with her, she decided she wanted to climb in the tub.


And someone (cough, Doug, cough) forgot to close the bathroom door.


Edited to add (forgot about these):

1 Year Stats

Keira had her 1 year well check-up on Tuesday. She is 31 inches long and 21 pounds. That puts her in the 95 percentile for height and the 49 percentile for weight.

Let me tell you, after carrying her around for a few hours, she definitely feels those 21 pounds (maybe even more).

Watch her in action

I've been making it a point to take more videos of Keira and not just photos. Here's her giving kisses to her Daddy.


She learned to put the ball in the laundry basket. I love how she looks back to make sure I was watching her.


Here she is putting rings on the peg. She's always loved that toy. At least now, she's doing more than chewing on the rings.

If she happens to be in your arms, make sure you don't get too close to the fridge. We don't have our water line hooked up yet so all she gets if the light. For some reason, she loves it. Pretty much everyone else who has a fridge with a water dispenser has the water lines hooked up so I can't wait to see what happens.

This is from this morning. I dumped out the basket of cloth diapers to stuff them. Well, I got 2 done, then realized that I had help. I grabbed my phone and decided to record her.

She got every last one.

Cake Smash: The Aftermath

Since Keira was so neat about having her cake, Heidi decided to help her.

Look how much she's grown

Here is a picture of Keira at 3 days old, in her coming home outfit.

And this is Keira, on her 1st birthday (today), in the same outfit.
