Happy New Years

I hope everyone had a great Christmas. Bryleigh celebrated her first Christmas and it was a white Christmas here in Dallas. Bryleigh got lots of presents but she was more interested in eating wrapping paper. She puts everything in her mouth. Her babysitter calls her a little billy goat. On Christmas she learned how to pull her self to a stand using the couch. She now does this on everything. She has had her share of wipe outs and hit her head a few times. She does not seem to be phased by them because she continues to pull up on everything.
She has been crawling really well lately. She is really fast. She takes off to the bathroom every chance she gets. She also shakes her head no back to us. It is so cute. She waves bye bye and tries to say it, but it souds more like di di. I am just so happy with how well she is doing. She is an absolute joy to watch as she learns all these new things.
We may be making another trip back to Duke for another cord blood infusion I had a date set but had to cancel due to our schedules. But hopefully I can get something set up soon. My best friend Stephanie lives in South Carolina and is going to drive down to stay with us. She went to my wedding and that is the last time I have seen her. So I am looking forward to the trip.
Bryleigh will be 1 next Tuesday. I can not believe it has been a whole year! Time goes by so fast. I am so blessed to have her in my life. I look forward to the years to come to be able to watch her grow and learn new things.
I don't get a chance to post much but I get on everyday and read everyones blogs. I say every time I am going to be better about updating. Maybe this time if I don't say it I will actually do better :-) Hope everyone has a Happy New Years!!!

She looks so excited about the present. I took these pictures in this order and her face is just so cute!

Mommy and Bryleigh!

I couldn't get her to sit still long enough to get a picture :-)

She loves to stand up now
