Penny Lane Is One


Here is my sweet little Penny Lane at one.  Just had to let you see how big she is now.  So sweet, but shy and here is a little quirk.  She doesn't want her hands touched.  She went to the doctor for her one year old checkup today and got six shots and they pricked her finger to draw pipettes of blood.  As you can imagine, it freaked her out.  We joked that we hope it didn't traumatize her.  Sweetest baby ever.  I've said repeatedly, that we need to name her Smiley because she smiles all the time.

If you notice, no sock and shoes.  We can't keep them on her.  


We went out to a restaurant last night and out of twenty pictures, this is the only one I could get before she turned her head or looked around.  It is nearly impossible to get a shot of her.  Maybe when she is sleeping. You can't see the little pink bandaid she's holding up on her finger.  Her Daddy frets that she is growing up too fast.  Wants to keep her just like this forever.  They love her so.

  1. She's just so hug-gable, bet you can't stop, what a dolly! About your post below; I never watch the Grammys, and pay little attention to Gaga, but just yesterday my husband showed me the Youtube video of her singing the national anthem at the superbowl and I was so impressed with her voice and the whole scene.

    1. I didn't see that Jeri. I don't watch any award shows nor sports. I've just heard bits and pieces and seen an interview or two. I think she'll be a legend. I really do. Penny is a doll.

  7. what a cutie. and she knows that socks and shoes aren't made for babies. it's better for their feet and development if they go barefoot. my daughter couldn't keep clothes on her kids. as soon as they hit the house, off everything would come.

    1. She doesn't cry often, but they said she let go with the finger prick. She is a cutie. I love it when I don't see her for a while and she sees me. It melts my heart.
