Despite my dread, Hollyn Joy's birthday came and went...and we all survived! I feel much better now that it is over, to be honest!
But I think that Hollyn is a little bummed that it is all over--she LOVED her birthday SO MUCH! I really believe she just knew it was her special day/week. Is that a good thing? She just likes the spotlight a whole bunch. I wonder what that means for our future...
My sister has a great post about hollyn's birthday. Check it out here.
Here are some things that we know about Hollyn these days:
-she's a munchkin...not sure of her stats because someone forgot to schedule the one year appointment, but she is sure not a tall girl:)
-pretends to be shy
-but can hold her own with her brothers
-she's a biter. yep.
-she eats just about anything
-loves spaghetti, avocados, bananas, cheese, ice cream
-dislikes sour foods
-has her daddy wrapped around her little finger...and she's so in love with him!
-enjoys Sesame Street characters
-likes to disappear....we often find her in Griffin's room playing kitchen or coloring
-gives awesome kisses, open mouth even!
-plays "where's hollyn"
-loves to dance...can already shake that booty of hers:)
-has a love/hate relationship with Griffin. He is either making her laugh hysterically or driving her nuts. But I think he feels the same way about her. Seriously, they are so loud together!
-likes Parker to read to her
-really, really dislikes getting dressed. She produced real tears whenever she has to be put through the torture of being dressed. Poor thing.
-Discreetly drops her food onto the floor and waits for a response. Really funny...she thinks.
-I know I'm going to think of so many more things after I hit publish...I'll add more later maybe.
-Oh, I know...I love her. I LOVE her. Oh man, that girl is so loved.
