14: Bath | Time! | At first you seemed to really love your bath. You were all nice and warm in the water. It seemed like a lot of fun until it was time to have your hair rinsed out. This was not any fun to you at all!

16: First month | Your First Month | March 2012 | A wee bit of heaven drifted down from above, a handful of happiness, a heart full of love.
17: You were born on February 27, 2012. Since 2012 was a leap year, you were two days away from being a leap year baby. And look at that hair! Who wouldn't love that "crazy" hair? I knew you were going to have a lot of hair when you were born with all the heartburn I had, but I never imagined how crazy it would be.
18: Happy First Easter! | April 8, 2012 | Sisters Forever!
19: Happy first Easter. You were still too small to hunt for Easter eggs, but that doesn't mean you didn't have fun. You got to watch Leah and Dylan and your cousins search for eggs at Busia's house.
