She's been close for some time...

Alice went for her 1 year check-up and vaccinations at the doctor's on Thursday. Our little crevette now weighs 20.86 pounds (60 percentile for weight) and is in the 75 percentile for height. She's stretching out! She had 2 shots and will be back for more in a month.
But here's the cool stuff. She has started to do a few new "problem solving" activities. Like trying to put objects inside boxes, holes, or bags. Like this:
Also, Alice has been trying to put the lids back on different containers (travel mug, empty yogurt container...)
And here's a cute one for today: Alice carried around two little disks from the beaded snake that she got for her birthday, for about an hour! Clenched in her fist like this:
Bless her heart. She is so wonderful!
(We were wondering if she would become attached to a teddy bear or doll... we were not expecting this!)
And the amazing yard sale that Lucy looked forward to for months? Bust. Big disappointment, for many reasons, most of which are too boring to note here. To cheer myself up though, we came home and went through some of the clothes we already had stashed away for the fall/winter. Check it out.
Who wouldn't be cheered up?

My first present on the actual day - from our Sudbury friends, Lynn and Paul.
(dinosaur puppet not shown)
My Great Auntie Jean came all the way from England (via Vancouver!) to read me a birthday story.
Thanks for my new t-shirt Gran
(it says something about Grandma and Grandpa being the best...)
Olivier looks like he's going to chair a meeting, but he's really just getting into his lunch
(Don't worry, we saved you a piece Daddy)
(Lucy's "first" birthday cake - she was mighty proud)
Alice and Olivier chowing down on cake
(But their mean mommies didn't give them any icing!)
Simonne sat in one spot until all of her icing was gone.
(And then her mum took care of the cake)
Woof, woof. Thanks for the puppy Simonne, my parents won't buy me a real one.
Daddy, the monkey you chose for me was a big hit!
Nicolas waiting patiently for the school bus.
(hey, it's yellow, it's got wheels, and it makes noise - what's not to love?)
Gratuitous crowd shot.
(and pic of Grandad's bum!)
Daddy, we missed you so very much at the party. We will tell you all about it when you come home next week. And you were right, Mummy has no idea where to put all of the new toys!
(p.s. everyone, check out Simonne's blog for more great photos)
