Asher's First Birthday

Asher Grace turned ONE on the 19th!  We had such a fun day celebrating our girl, she opened two gifts (a little doggie that walks around, and a some little piggies that go down a slide and swing in a swing). I made a chocolate cake from scratch and put some batter in a separate ramekin to bake so Ash could have her own little chocolate cake to dig into.  She was stoked on it.  After naps we took her to see Santa walk around and see the lights at Riverwoods, ride the train, and eat out at Tucanos.

At one-year-old Asher already has a very strong personality and knows what she likes and doesn't like.  She nurses three times a day still, and also eats three solid meals.  She loves most food but her favorites are broccoli soup, potatoes, and candy.  She takes two 1.5 hour naps a day and sleeps at night 8pm-8am.  She is a very good communicator and always lets us know what she wants with gestures and noises.  She smiles easily, but it takes some work to make her laugh and only Berlin can get the really hard laughs out of her.  She is super affectionate to mom and dad, but refuses to go to anyone else and is very clingy.  She can stand without holding onto anything and take steps while holding our hands.  She says "Dada, hi, hello, uh-oh, and Alexa"  and we love our sweet Gracie Girl.
