Matt and I just celebrated our 5th Wedding Anniversary this past Friday! We celebrated by Matt coming home and surprising me with red roses, Toppers cheese sticks (our favorite!) and my favorite beer Spotted Cow and watching a movie. Matt has been sick all weekend so we have taken it easy and stuck around the house! Lyla loves to smile and crinkle her nose lately! I caught a few pictures of her doing this recently!
We just had Lyla's 1 year pictures taken this weekend. She definitely was in no mood to smile for the camera. Luckily it wasn't busy and we could take our time, have Lyla explore while we got a couple snaps. The first photographer decided to see if her counterpart would get Lyla to smile. It worked b/c she smiled for him! Matt thinks Lyla is fasinated with gay men! Whatever it was, it worked! We didn't have much to pick from but at least we got a few good shots.
Lyla's 1 year doctor's appointment went well. She now weights 20 lbs and 11 0z and is 28 inches long. She is only in the 40% for weight and 25% for height. I'm surprised b/c I didn't think she was short. She is pretty much grown out of her 12 month clothes already too but 18 month clothes are still really big on her! The Dr could still hear her heart murmur . According to the Children's Hospital it's still very minor and our next appointment is not until June.
For the last couple weekends, we have been trying to get some yard work done when Lyla is napping. We definitely can't get anything done with Lyla outside with us b/c she loves to go explore the yard. One minute she is beside you and the next she is off wandering. I'm glad she likes to be outside b/c summer is just around the corner!
Lyla continues to cut teeth as well. Right now she only has 2 but the top tooth we can see is almost ready to cut through. She definitely has been crabby lately!
That's it from us. Hope you enjoy the pictures!

My first backpack Auntie Kristi gave Lyla her very first backpack from New Zealand. It's a kiwi bird and she just loves walking around with it.
