Courtney and Cake

Courtney turned 1 year old today.  She’s doing great.  As you can see in the picture, she loves cake with chocolate frosting.  She’s wearing her pajamas because that’s what she wore all day.  This is one of the “fun weeks” at daycare and today was pajama day.  It was pretty cute to see a bunch of kids her age cruising around in footie pajamas.  Speaking of cruising, Courtney has caught on to the walking thing.  A little over a week ago, she was taking a couple steps.  Now she’s heading from one side of the room to another.  She still falls down but she’s getting better and faster.  She caught me by surprise the first time I saw her walk around the corner while I was in the kitchen.

 I loaded up more pictures of both kids over in the photo album.  There are pictures of Courtney’s birthday party with Mom.  She has another party coming up on Friday.

Courtney swings

Today Courtney and I went to the park to swing for a while since she didn’t have any daycare because of the Columbus Day holiday.  It was a little cool out, but we put a cute jacket on and went for a stroll.  Courtney really enjoyed swinging.  She smiled and laughed as the wind blew in her hair.

She’s getting so big now.  For the past month or so she has been pulling herself up to standing using the furniture.  She’ll take a step or two but really hasn’t walked on her own yet.  She’s lightning fast at crawling.  The dog water bowl has to be moved outside when she’s crawling around.  It is too enticing.
