One year!

My littlest girl is one year old today!

She's gone from a blue baby, pissed at being in the world...

to an observant, inquisitive toddler running after her sister and parents.

Nothing about her pregnancy or birth was easy. She convinced us that even if we wanted to have a third child, there was no way we'd attempt it overseas again.

She's made up for her trying entrance by being a joy to be around. She loves "head kisses" (touching your forehead to hers), emptying the plastic recycling bag in our kitchen, and playing with her sister.

Until it goes too far.

She weighed 10.26 kilos (22.6 lbs) and was 79 cm (31 inches) long at the doctor's yesterday. According to her pediatrician, "A big girl!" She prefers vegetables to fruit and loves cheese and pasta. She has also been caught eating markers, chalk, and crayons.

Betti loves her bottle and is always coming up with new ways to get around while drinking it.

And she loves getting caught in the process.

We can't wait to see what she does next.

Happy Birthday Betti!
