Portia's 1st Birthday


I can't believe our baby girl is one! Sometimes I feel like I just had her. We had all the siblings and our neighbors, the Owens, over for cake and ice cream last night. Portia loved opening her presents (she was pretty good at it, too!).

As you can see, she progressed from the dainty girl to full-fledged finger-painting!

Her favorite presents seem to be her multi-racial baby dolls. I had to laugh because both grandmas bought her dolls in the appropriate color.


This morning Portia had her 12-month check-up. Here's her stats: 20 lbs. 5 oz. (35% weight), 30 in. (80% height) and 43.5 cm. (20% head). I'm happy to report (for those of you who don't read baby charts) that Portia is still long and getting leaner.


Portia's latest accomplishment is her walking. She's getting better every day and is currently able to walk across our family room. She stands up on her own and tries to run. She says about five words and signs about fifteen words. Her current favorite signs are "baby" and "more". She is so fun to have around, even though she's a tad intense!
