maren is ONE!!

Maren turned ONE today! I can't believe that it has been a whole year since she
joined our family. I was so excited for Riley to have a sister and that they would be so
close in age. She is so much fun to have around and has added to the excitement of
the family. She is funny, smart, sweet and VERY cute! We all adore her and feel blessed
to have her as a daughter and a sister.

fun things about Maren at one:

favorite toys: anything small enough to fit in her mouth, paper, cars
favorite food: squash, sweet potatoes, paper, her bottle, the other kids chocolate milk
she loves to: dance, chase the other kids, climb the stairs, be sung to, cuddle, SCREAM!
she hates: the car, people touching her face, anyone to tell her no, (especially when she
favorite songs
love at home, wheels on the bus, popcorn popping, itsy bitsy spider
favorite book: goodnight moon

Happy Birthday Maren! She is such a doll Stephanie! And my kids LOVE the Goodnight Moon book too! I had never heard of it until Robin had mailed it to us when Caitlynn was little. And way to go that she is a healthy eater (except for the paper, of course).
