Linda is 1

As of yesterday, Linda is 1. It happened quickly, but also slowly. That's because time is wibbly wobbly.

Linda, my grumpy baby is now 1 and is no longer grumpy.

She was my fussiest baby during her colic time.

She was my earliest sitter at 4 and a half months (YES!!! I LOVE THAT MILESTONE!). She started crawling a bit later than my others... maybe around 8 months? 7? I don't remember. She did/does a lot of butt scooting. I think that's due to my love of the sitting up milestone. Here baby, sit on the floor while I make lunch. *scoot scoot scoot*

She is my latest walker. Both Margaret and Isaac were walking by a year. Linda is taking her time. She's taken a few steps, but hasn't felt the need to actually walk. She can go from sitting on the ground to standing (at which point she can hold it for a second or two and then will fall back to the ground). She loves peek-a-boo. If she hears the word "peek-a-boo" she will automatically start playing it. She first started playing it with a blanket at 8 months.

She loves her siblings. They make her laugh. She can climb up stairs, but not down them. We don't have stairs, so she doesn't get practice.

She loves breast. And she's my first baby to have an annoying nursing habit: playing with the big mole on my neck. I often just let her do it. I don't have time to fight her on it. Meh. She won't be doing it when she's 19.

Like she was supposed to, she doubled her birth weight by 6 months, but she's failed to triple it by a year. I'm not worried about it, though, she started at 10 pounds!

One of my New Year's resolutions this year is to go through all our photos and label them. Looking back at little bald Margaret, whom we thought was so chunky, I know that Linda is ridiculously chunky at 23.2 pounds (as of last night).

We went to Disneyland this past weekend for McKay and Linda's birthdays. All of my babies have drawn attention from strangers and Linda is no exception. We were told that she looks like a Cabbage Patch Doll (she doesn't... she's cuter). One woman stopped and stared and exclaimed, "I can't look away from that baby! I have to stop and look at her!"

 Maybe we need to start the pageant circuit now. I think we're already behind. :)
