My 3rd daughter, Andi, turns 1 year old today!
This kid is awesome. She is so smiley and has an incredibly bubbly personality.
Andi’s gifts to us!
This morning Andi decided to give my wife and I two gifts of her own.
Gift #1: She took her first step!
How awesome is that. On her first birthday she took her first step. Her sister Hayley, with the fire red hair, was stubborn enough as a 1 year old to hold out until she was nearly 16 months to walk. I know Hayley had the strength to walk, but she just did not want to be told to walk. She was going to do it on her own time.
We’d say, “Ready to walk… 1, 2, 3…” Well before she walked she learned to count. She could count to 5 before she took a step.
Andi is on the normal path to walking. Take that all you other parents out there… my kid is walking probably right around the same time your kid started walking. That is worth bragging about.
Gift #2: _______
You know how there are tons of different types of poop. I’m sure you’ve seen the charts that like 90% of mom and dad blogs make about the different types of stool. I’ll probably make one someday myself, but for now I’ll just share a real life example.
Remember Easter? It was just a couple months ago. Did you get any of those little chocolate malt Easter egg candies? Mmmmm. Well Andi decided to crap out perfect little Easter egg malt ball shaped turds today.
On top of that they were hard, just like the Easter egg malt ball candies. In fact when I changed her two of the little turd candies went rolling across the floor. Those little suckers were like elk poop (for those of you that do not know what elk poop looks like, they look identical to Milk Duds.) And they singed the hair on your upper lip they stunk so bad.
After the first changing it wasn’t more than a few minutes later and Andi filled her diaper again with another handful of those rank elk doo Easter egg malt ball candy turds. That gift was for my wife.
Happy Birthday Andi! Thanks for the presents.
