 I think pregnancy and the first year of a child's life are exhausting and an over abundance of work, but Belle has filled the moments with inexpressible joy.  She is a bright spot in all of our lives.  I am so so thankful to have her.
She is a tiny little peanut.  At her one year check-up today she weighed 16.6 pounds.....below the zeroth percentile.  He head and height are both in the 20%.
She still wears 6-9 months cloths and size 2 shoes. 
She nurses about 4 times a day.....not sure quite what to do about that yet.
She loves books, especially reading them upside down, dogs, music and dancing, her dada and her brothers, and throwing her cup off her highchair and her paci out of her crib while saying, "Uh oh!" 
She has no interest in walking.
She has two bottom teeth and beautiful blue eyes.
Happy Birthday our precious girl!

Wow, Belle is just adorable! I never realized (just looking at pictures) that she is so petite. We've had one average, tallish girl, then a petite one, and now a chubby baby (at 9 months Rachel weighs 21 pounds). They are all fun in their own way, but I liked my petite baby because she seemed to stay small and cuddly longer.

She is beautiful, and the first year is exhausting!
