On C's first birthday I took some pictures of her at home. We had to go in and tell her "Happy birthday!" as soon as she woke up in the morning. Her hair usually doesn't stick out like this, but I think she had gotten a little sweaty or gone to bed with her hair not totally dry.
She got to have her first strawberries, and, after touching them a lot, loved the taste of them!
In the evening we went over to Grandma's house, where she played with an aquarium app.
I also took the monthday photos of her with the pink bear. (I thought they didn't turn out as well as others have -- this was in a basement, she was not real cooperative, and her hairdo was not the best.)

I think we hadn't seen this grandma in a while but we also had another special reason for going over that night. Hmmm, I don't think my husband needed a haircut from her at that time, so what was it? Well, speaking of haircuts, on November 28th C had her first haircut Grandma just trimmed a little off the front of C's hair. I made a video, too.
At this age she got around mostly by sitting and scooting. She does her own style of crawl -- pretty much on her knees but only her right foot is behind her -- for a second or two sometimes before going back to the bum scoot.
Her new foods in her 12th month were tofu, ground sunflower seeds, spinach, cauliflower, green cabbage, Goldfish and Ritz crackers from a babysitter without my permission, grapes (just a tiny bit), and honeydew melon (then strawberries on the birthday, like I showed above).
C saw the pediatrician on January 2nd and weighed 16 pounds 4 ounces --1st percentile like L was at 12 months. The percentile was a little higher for her height, and her head was 99th again. The doctor said it's fine if C doesn't do a regular crawl, and we should just try to get her walking. She said I should stand her up holding onto the couch or whatever and put a toy far away so she'll want to step sideways to reach it.
