The birth of "Pooh Bear"

She was born on August 23rd at 7:58am. She weighed 8 lbs 11.5 oz and was 20 inches long. She was my heaviest baby! When she was born, my grandma teased me and said that I gave birth to a toddler. We soon nicknamed her Pooh Bear 'cause she was stuffed with fluff!

One time, when we were at the grocery store, a woman came up and said "What a fat little baby" Jason turned to her and said "Look who's talking!" (you don't mess with Jason's girls)

Loo loved her binky. No, let me try again, she LOVED her binky. When we thought it was time to get rid of it, we decided we weren't going to buy any more. That was hard. Her binky started getting sticky on the end of it, and soon after that, it started getting a whole. We have her on video telling Jason to "Fix it Daddy, Fix it! My binky's bwokeen". She was sobbing her heart out. Jason told her she had to throw it away, that he couldn't fix it. She cried even more. It wasn't even like throwing a fit either, she was truly sad by the death of her binky. (Every time I watch that movie, I cry)

Loo had a really scruffy voice when she was younger too. She also had trouble saying her R's W's and L's. She grew out of it by the time she got to first grade. I guess that was better for her as far as school goes, but as parents, we were heartbroken!

When Loo was little, she could sleep anywhere! Under the table, on the table, on her rocking cow, brushing her teeth, eating dinner... anywhere!

From the time Loo began eating solid foods, she has been the best eater! She ate everything we would give her (except for mashed potatoes) She is STILL the best eater in the house. She will try everything at least once. Some of her favorite foods include sushi, salmon, crab, shrimp, lasagna, and chocolate. She can't get enough Hershey's kisses, just plain chocolate bars and chocolate chips.

Here's some more things that we love about Loo:
She is super creative. She can turn ANYTHING into art or a game or something to play with. She is very very witty. Most of the time, she is very easy going. She is smart. She has ultra soft ears. She has dimples. She loves the Twilight series. She loves animals and has aspired to be a veterinarian when she grows up.

Happy birthday Sweetie! We love you!
