Happy 1st Birthday Shelby

I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that Shelby is ONE! I am sad she is not labeled a “baby” and is now a “toddler” but she is still a baby!

It seems like yesterday we were taking her newborn photos.

She is not walking yet but is standing on her own for a few seconds at a time. The other day she even tried to take a step forward but she fell down. I think she gets nervous standing on her own.

Words she can say are: mama, dada, Sarah, Sam (Saaaa), hi, Abby (Abba)

Shelby can clap and give high fives. If she sees anyone else clapping, either in person or on TV she joins in. She waves and says hi.

We had a really fun photo shoot to mark her one year and I am so glad we did!

What a wonderful first year we have had with her and I look forward to this new year!
