My toddler

Here is the first sign that I have been welcomed to the world of toddlerhood.
You know ... the age where you can't reason with your children, the age where everything is the end of the world (back arching end of the world!), and the age where the word "no" gets a laugh.
This morning Emma did her first very bad thing... she bit Grace. Yup... my 12 month old bit my 3 year old. She bit her hard enough that you can still see the marks on Grace's arm 8 hours later. Ouch! Grace was pretty upset too, but I guess Emma has finally learned how to stand up for herself!

In other news, last week Emma and I headed to the doctor for her 1 year well check. She is perfect healthy. Would you believe in her first year of life the only really sickness she got was the chicken pox?! Other than a couple colds she has been super healthy! AMEN! Our first year with Grace was filled with 9 ear infections! So we are more than thrilled that Emma has been healthy.

Here are her stats:
weight: 20lbs 8 ozs (40%)
length: 29 inches (50%)
Head: 18.5 inches (93%)!!

Look mom no hands! I guess she was trying to be "clean" by just digging in face first!
Thankfully my sweet Emmy is here most the time and little miss todler Emmy only comes out from time to time!

uh oh! Avery hits. Molly was a biter though. Not much you can do about it. I don't remember Grace biting.

Hi Lisa! My name is Nancy...I found your blog through Kelly's Korner blog.... I have two little girls too! They are 3 1/2 and the little one will be 2 next month. Wow! I am glad that I am not the only one with two little munchkins that fight. It's fun having two girls, but wears me out sometimes. I hope you don't mind that I stopped by...I love reading new blogs and learning from other mommies :)
