1: Things Mommy forgot to tell me in my last book: I got my first two teeth on 6/23/11. My first laugh out loud was in sacrament meeting on 4/17/11. I could finally roll over when I was 6 months old. I could sit up by myself at 7 months old. At 9 months old, I started crawling and eating table food! I love green beans and banana's. I also love mashed potatoes. Mommy says I have always been 'shakin' my tooshie'! I love to dance and since I have been able to crawl, I am unstoppable! I am 28.5" tall and I weigh 18 lbs 4 oz at my one year check-up.
2: Your first birthday party! It was at Great Grandma Joan's house. You had my own special ladybug cake that was sure yummy!

6: January 2012 | You started to walk with the help of your toys. It wouldn't be long before you were taking your own steps. You are growing right on track. You have 8 front teeth and are cutting two molars this month! OUCH!

We had pictures taken and you are so beautiful We were only there for a few days but we had a great time. | You are growing up so fast! You are starting to chatter a lot even though none of it makes sense! You are understanding more of what I say and you are able to show me more of what you want. You love your cow and your little bunny stuffed animals. No new teeth this month, you are 20.8 lbs and about 28" tall.

57: Wow! Has this year been exciting! I can't believe how much you change everyday. One day you can only say a few words and the next day, you are asking me where is Truman. You are growing strong even though you are petite! Everywhere we go, people are always saying how beautiful you are. You certainly have your independence! You have so much of my strong attitude that I worry a little! We moved from the farm into our own house this year! It is the perfect place for the two of us and it has a big yard that you can not wait to play in! My darling Stella, you are the light of my life! Always remember that! I love you! Love, Mom
