Busy mom, forgot about her blog

Hi friends! I'm not even going to try to update on the past 8 months. Annie is 22 months now and doing amazingly! She sleeps all night in her big girl bed and she is talking like crazy. She knows her letters, numbers, animal sounds and has lots of sentences. She loves to play outside and we're looking forward to a fun summer!

Beach Babe

We went to Santa Cruz a while ago so I have some photos to share.

Annie is having a rough time sleeping lately but is walking, talking and learning so much! Here are her words:
ma ma
da da
buh buh = buddy (Calvin's nick name)
nah nah = Nathan
ba ba = bottle
bay bay = baby (what she calls herself)
poo poo
nie nie = night night
hehwo = hello
bye bye
mah ma (rhymes with grandma) = grandma
ta da (she raises her arms up and says this after daddy flips her)
uh oh
no no (she wags her finger back and forth while saying this)
diapah = diaper
dat = that (what she says when she points at something she wants or is interested in)
bah = bath

I may be missing a few. She also mimics us a lot so we get more words but the ones above are words she uses accurately. Right now she is crawling down the hallway, saying "bah bah" asking for a bath!

We have a walker!

Annie took her first steps the week before her 1st birthday. She still crawls most of the time but every day she's walking more and more. Yesterday she took 21 steps in a row including a big turn!

She's also talking like crazy. She's up to about 15 or so words.

A few weeks ago we went to my Dad's retirement party. It was held at the Compass Rose Gardens in Bodega Bay, the same place Lance and I got married. Here are a few photos from that evening.

Had to share this sweet happy girl at a recent neighbor's birthday party.

Yesterday we went to the fair. After Annie recovered from her first public meltdown we all had a good time!

We're doing well here. Still working on sleeping but I'm sure that will work out eventually...right?

Annie got her first haircut.

I asked the woman to trim her bangs to her eyebrows so they weren't hanging in her eyes anymore. They are a good TWO inches above her eyebrows now! :( She doesn't even look like the same girl. Thank goodness they'll grow.

*Edited to add photos. I wanted it cut so that I wouldn't have to put a hair clip in it 100% of the time. Now I will have to until it grows an inch or so. Should only take a few weeks...

1 year checkup & the water table!

Sweet Annie had her 1 year check up today and is doing great! When we brought her home at 9 months she was at the 42th percentile for weight and the 81st for height! She's gained 4 pounds and has grown an inch in the last 3 months. So now she is 22.75 pounds and 29.75" which is the 73rd percentile for weight and 65th for height! My sweet little chunky girl. :-)

Annie got the greatest water table from her Grandma Sue and Grandpa Alan for her birthday. She loves it (as shown below)!

Annie is one!

I can't believe it. Annie turned one on Saturday. We did a Korean Tol celebration at her party. In Korea turning one is cause a big celebration and Annie's foster mom gave us a beautiful Hanbok for her to wear on her first birthday.

Part of the celebration includes Annie picking items on a table, each with a meaning to predict her future. She chose the needle and thread and then the money which means she will have a long life and be wealthy! It was a lot of fun.

The River

The heat wave is over and it was a beautiful 75 degrees. We had lots of fun with friends on the Russian River.
