You are growing up day by day and you are learning so much, you are so smart and bright. Around your birthday you decided you wanted to walk along the furniture, so you pulled yourself up and you did. You are so amazing and you figure things out on your own and in your own time and we like that. You can say, mama, dada, ducky, W'isit? (where is it?) Woo'isit? (who is it?), stinky. You can sign more. You are learning so much everyday and it amazes me the knowledge you retain. You love, love, love books. I get a laugh watching you "read" your books. You turn the pages and bust out your fake laugh in between the pages. Your favorite thing to do is crawl to your room and pull all of your board books out of your basket and sit and look through all of them. You also like to chew on them too. You are crawling everywhere and getting into everything. Sometimes I wonder how you get stuck under the bar stools and how you get into my cupboards, but you do and it is my joy to clean up after you. I love all of your cracker crumb fingerprints on my stove and every other appliance that is in arms reach. I hate washing them away and sometimes leave them there, just so that they remind me of what an amazing little girl I have in my life. You love music and have learned to bounce your little body to the beat. You love to watch "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse." You love to play with your toys and you can entertain yourself for hours. You've learned to get on your knees in your high chair and every time you do you give me a heart attack. You still are in size 3 diapers and 6-9 month clothing although here very soon we'll have to put those away and get you 9-12 month clothing. You are finally getting some teeth and they are not being very nice. You love to each apple sauce, crackers, puffs, yogurt and we finally started you on cows milk. You love when daddy comes home and you just light up when you see him. You are our silly, happy, sweet, get what you want girl. WE LOVE YOU so much and we can't imagine our lives with out our little lady.

We celebrated Havyn's birthday a little early so that we could celebrate with some of our family. We had just a small party for the sweet little lady. We invited my grandparents, my family and Ruston's mom and dad. My dad was super sick that weekend and I felt awful, he couldn't celebrate with us. He built Havyn this awesome toy box and didn't even get to see her open it. My sister and I stayed up all night the night before making the cake and the smash cake, along with the banner. We had a lot of fun making every thing and it turned out super cute. She got lots of clothes and some fun toys. When it was time to smash the cake, she really didn't know what to do. I put her hand in it and after that it was history. She probably would have eaten the whole thing if I would have let her, but she polished off a good portion of it.
