Frugal Girl turned 1 and we have had a couple of little celebrations to mark the occasion. Grandma made an adorable unicorn cake for her. It tasted as good as it looked!
I made this delicious roasted chicken. You can throw the entire carcass into a stock pot, and boil the remaining meat off to make an easy chicken noodle soup. Just add a quart of chicken broth or water and carrots or other veggies.
Shae made some tasty cupcakes. Frugal Girl looked to big brother for some guidance on the candle. He knew what to do.
She didn’t need any help eating the cupcake though!
We opened some presents, including this big one.
She had her 12 month vaccinations and checkup. 29.5″ tall (63 percentile), 20 lbs 2 oz (56 percentile), and a head circumference of 18.5″ (94 percentile).
She isn’t walking yet on her own (probably because of the high center of gravity), but she does enjoy cruising along furniture. She really enjoyed the trip to the zoo. Anything that she could see up close she liked including the primates, turtles, and fish.
All in all, she is a happy healthy girl.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to making the first year as easy as possible for us parents!
