Happy 1st Birthday Annabel!

I cannot believe it was one year ago today that I sat at work in labor wondering if maybe I should go to the hospital.

The answer was yes!!

Just a few hours after leaving work to go to the hospital Annabel Alicia was born!

It's so hard to believe that the girls looked like this a year ago!

And now they look like this together!

Annabel has grown so much and so fast!

She started out at just 7 pounds 3 ounces and was born at only 36 weeks (making her a full month early)!

She's a very happy girl!

At one year old Annabel can now cruise and she's seriously the fastest crawler I have ever seen!

She has 4 teeth, 2 top and 2 bottom.

She has wavy/crazy red hair and bright blue eyes.

She seems pretty average in size, she's wearing all size 12 month clothes.

Annabel giggles like crazy if you tickle her or touch her nose.

She really loves her sleep, she sleeps from 8pm till around 9am and then takes a nap (sometimes) from noon till around 2pm.

She's a very stubborn girl and refuses to drink from sippy cups and likes other people (Annika) to feed her instead of feeding herself.

She loves bath time and never cries even when water gets in her face.

She is shy around most strangers but very friendly with people she's familiar with.

Annabel is 100% in love with Annika which is good because Annika calls her "my baby".  When Annika is napping Annabel will yell up the stairs "Anna" for her and if she leaves the room she calls for her now too.

Happy Birthday my little sweetheart!!
