1 year of Hallie Anne

Oh Hallie! This is the update that is the most bittersweet! We have made it to 1 year! Which has brought so much fun and excitement, but at the same time, Mommy is missing that wee little peanut that we brought home from the hospital a year ago.  That tiny girl that slept on my chest all day that was too small for her preemie clothes.  That girl with the thick dark hair and giant blue eyes.  As much as I miss those days, each and every day with you is more fun! You are learning so much and have become quite independent! 

Here is all about you at 1 year old sweet pea:
I was wrong on the height and weight. This was before our appointment. We tried weighing her on Pop's scale at work!

  • Age- 1  year
  • Weight- We fell off the charts again, we are only 15 lbs and 1.5 oz
  • Length- 29 inches tall!! So tall like her daddy!
  • Size- Mostly 3-6 month clothes. Sometimes 9 month for length.  Size 2 Diapers
  • Eyes- Starting to turn a little green like her daddy's! 
  • Hair- Light brown and getting long. Almost time for a haircut! 
  • Sleeping- 2 naps a day and 11 hours at night. 
  • Eating- Anything and everything! We just started Whole Milk and are taking it like a champ out of a sippy cup! No more bottles! 
  • Milestones-  Took first steps. We have 1 tooth! 
  • Memorable outings- Lots of birthday parties, photo shoots, and swimming.  We also enjoyed arena football with Pop these last couple months.  
  • Favorite toys/activities-  Stuffed animals (Especially my puppy, giraffe and bunny), Books (especially animal books like Dear Zoo), Pat-a-cake, cars and musical toys! Looking at all the pictures in the house with Daddy
  • Words/sounds- I have lost count of all of the words that she knows! We at least have 20-25.  My favorite ones: Mama, Daddy, Puppy, Stella, Tickle-tickle and Hi!
  • Nicknames- I call her sweet pea, peanut, sweet girl or Hal...Daddy likes to call her Daniel son when I put headbands on her...but other than that sticks to a generic sweetie or cutie!
  • Funny moments- This girl always leaves us cracking up! Today she started waving and screaming "Hiiiii" to a kid on a bike in front of her friend Jude's house 
  • Looking forward to- The holidays! Should be really fun this year! 

We had to do these in 2 sessions because somebody was not very happy!

Red Dress- Dillards

Seahorse Tunic and Leggings- Mud Pie
Crown Headband- Etsy


  1. Hallie is such a sweetheart - she always looks so happy! And it sounds like she's a little peanut just like Mila!

  2. She's so cute. So tiny too. Aria may have started off all tiny and a month early, but girl made up for it in the months to come. Not that I remember what she weighed at a year anymore. The holidays are going to rock, my prediction =) I've been working on our family yearbook and just got up to November. So much fun looking back at October and Thanksgiving and I'm just about to get to Aria's 2nd bday. Yay memories.

  3. She has just gotten so big! I can't believe its been a year. She was such a teeny nugget when born!! She is so smart! She has more words than Olivia!!


Don't be shy, I'd love to hear what you think! Don't forget to follow us!
