12 Month Check-up and Birthday Party

Julianne had her 12 month check up with Dr. Bronfin on September 22nd...I know I'm way behind on posting. Sorry. She weighed 24 pounds, 9 ounces and was 28 3/4 inches tall! She got 3 shots. :( She also had a lead level check (which was fine). Julianne's doctor was impressed by all of the things Julianne is saying and by the fact that she can follow simple instructions (i.e. clap your hands, find the spoon, show me the dog, etc.). The appointment went well. She'll go back to Dr. Bronfin tomorrow for the first of 2 flu shots and on Monday she'll get the second of her RSV shots at a clinic set up especially for RSV shots.

Julianne seemed to enjoy her party, for the most part. She did not like anything that had to do with cake/icing or the singing. She loved the balloons and all of the people. She gave out a lot of kisses and smiles too. Julianne even got to play on the swings. It was a beautiful, breezy day and we enjoyed celebrating our sweet girl's first birthday.

We're hoping to go to Ochsner Hospital (if Child Life says that day is ok) on Monday to bring in some treats and surprises for the pediatric patients in honor of Julianne's birthday. Thanks so much for your gifts and donations for them.

Finally, here are some pictures from the birthday part. Thanks for checking in! (If the slide show or music seems choppy, just pause it for a minute and let it load then hit play again)

Loved the cakes and all the cupcakes! Looks like u all had a great time. Wish Julianne had tasted that yummy looking cake; next year there will be no stopping her! I can't believe she kept her birthday crown on throughout the whole party. What a party girl. Jessica, you and Kent have made Julianne such a special and happy girl. Keep up the good work. We love you all.

How sweet =) She looked adorable.

24 lbs! WOW, she's heavier than my Elyse. My poor baby has a hard time gaining weight. =(

What a great 1st birthday party!!! The birthday girl is adorable in her crown! She seemed to like the swing, too...I am sure she got a good wipe down afterwards though.
That is so awesome that you are taking items to the hospital for her first birthday...that will mean so much to them! You are a very special family and we love sharing in these beautiful milestones in Julianne's life!
