One Year Tribute!

How can one tiny person learn and grow so much in one short little year.

Here's our Gringanada's 1st year:  A tribute.

On February 9th 2011 at 5 am my water broke at home.
I quickly showered and we headed to the hospital.
Miss H was born at 12:34 in the afternoon.
She was perfect in every way. 
1st Kiss 
1st Best Friend
1st Bath

A month later she was blessed in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints.
It was a special occasion. 
She looked like an angel.

In April She was the cutest thing the Easter bunny had ever brought me.
We also had our very first overnight outing where we made a trip to General Conference in SLC, UT.

(Argentina's Independence day) 
1st Big Girl Food!

In June was had special visitors from Argentina.
Sergio's brother and sister-in-law came to visit.
We had a lot of fun with them.
She also got to eat things that weren't just cereal...
like squash...
and foot. 

We loved celebrating Independence Day
Our Gringanada LOVED the fireworks.
And she looked like a little firecracker herself.

By August she had learned a few new tricks.
She could stand up if we put her up to something.
And she even learned how to sit up. 
We had an amazing vacation for my Birthday.
We got to head down to Argentina so that Hazel could meet all of her amazing family.
We had so much fun.
It was something that we will never forget.
I loved watching Sergio's family love and hug our little baby. 
It was really hard on all of us to leave.

In September Miss H. was in desperate need for a hair cut.
Her hair was always sticking straight up and never looked nice.
It looked much better afterwards. 
It was really fun watching her personality really develop.
She started turning out to be quite the goof ball. 

In August Miss H. just kept getting one ear infection after the other 
so our Dr. decided that it was probably time for tubes.
The surgery went really well.  She has only had one ear infection since then...now if we can just get her over having constant sinus infections we will be awesome.

Even though sometimes she doesn't feel very well, she is usually still in a pretty good mood.
We had a super happy Halloween.
She was the cutest Witch EVER.
We love those chunky thighs.

Isn't she beautiful!
So dramatic right?
She is quite the drama queen.
Happy Thanksgiving!  She's a huge fan of turkey...and pretty much any other food for that matter.
She has always been really easy to feed.  Not a picky eater at all.
Maybe that explains all the rolls.

December is always a special holiday for any little person.
Although she wasn't a fan of Santa,
she sure loved all the fun new things that he brought.
It was so fun watching Miss H and Miss C share everything Christmas morning.  The just took turns checking out each others things. 
My favorite part of this Christmas was watching the girls play with this Little People's nativity.
They loved it.
Even on Christmas morning it was her favorite choice. 

We had a lot of fun celebrating the new year.
She has always been quite the night owl...she fell asleep right before midnight, so I had to wake her up to make sure she didn't miss anything. 
At the end of January we got to make our way to Arizona.
We had a fun trip.
Our Gringanada is an awesome traveler.
She slept most of the way.
It's funny that we had to go to AZ to play in snow.
It was fun getting to see my mom's side of the family.  We sure love them.

It has been a very Happy year.
We love our little girl.
I look back on pictures and I can't believe so much time has already passed.
Some days I miss when she cuddled up in my arms and all the little sounds that she made.
I love watching her learn and grow every day.  
I love that wonder in her eyes when she sees something new or when she realizes that she can do something she had never done.
She can't wait until daddy gets home to run to him and give him hugs and kisses.
She loves her mommy and her mommy loves her.
She is our sweetheart.
She is perfect.

Here's to many more years!

Holy Cow! What a year! It really is amazing how much they change the first year. And how wonderful she got to be with both families in her first year!
