Alice went for her 1 year check-up and vaccinations at the doctor's on Thursday. Our little crevette now weighs 20.86 pounds (60 percentile for weight) and is in the 75 percentile for height. She's stretching out! She had 2 shots and will be back for more in a month.
But here's the cool stuff. She has started to do a few new "problem solving" activities. Like trying to put objects inside boxes, holes, or bags. Like this:
Also, Alice has been trying to put the lids back on different containers (travel mug, empty yogurt container...)

Bless her heart. She is so wonderful!
(We were wondering if she would become attached to a teddy bear or doll... we were not expecting this!)
And the amazing yard sale that Lucy looked forward to for months? Bust. Big disappointment, for many reasons, most of which are too boring to note here. To cheer myself up though, we came home and went through some of the clothes we already had stashed away for the fall/winter. Check it out.
Who wouldn't be cheered up?
