Birthday Update

Annelise had such a fun birthday!  On Saturday morning, my dad continued a very special tradition in our family.  He took Annelise to McDonald's for breakfast! 

It was so fun to watch how excited he was to take her.  And he said she ate like a horse - two pancakes, sausage and orange juice!  

Later in the day, we had the entire family over for cake and ice cream.  She got to eat her own cupcake and boy did she like it!  She also got some great presents (thanks family!). 

Sorry the quality of the video is so bad.  I'll post more pictures/video soon.

Today was Annelise's one year doctor appointment.  She is growing like a weed.  Here's her specs:

29 inches (50 percentile)
19.6 pounds (25 percentile)
and her head is in the 75 percentile

The past year has gone by so quickly, but we are thrilled to watch Annelise grow into the woman that God has created her to be.  She has brought so much love and joy into our family.
