She seems to have finally turned a corner though, and It looks like we are hopefully out of the woods. Her granular tissue has competely covered the bone (still very nasty) and the vet isn't showing any signs of bone damage at this time. I think she is going to be fine.
I would post some pictures, but I promise you, most people would vomit at the sight, let alone the smell. Luke hates the smell of infection so badly now... My car, garage, and washing machine smell like her infection. It gets everywhere, and I have to wash all my cleaning rags and store them in my garage. I am so excited my brother is in town now to help my dad and I out. It has been an adventure!
Weight 24 lbs 15 oz. 80%
Height 31.5 inchs 82%
Head circum 48.1 cm. 96%
We are so lucky to have such a great baby and she makes us very happy. We just hope she keeps growing healthy and strong.
So things we discussed at the doctors were as follows:
Temper tantrums... yep
Head-banging or throwing things in anger... no (hopefully never) and yes
Keeping doors closed on overs, dishwashers, and clothesdryers... Check (huge temptation)
Climbing and Falling.... Just beginning to climb on kitchen chairs
Good to know your child's behavior isn't abnormal, isn't it?
For those of you that don't know, Luke has been working on a big project with his friend Joe. They are shooting a demo for a tv show they want to pitch in the spring, and it involved learning how to skate. These are some fun pictures of Blake participating in skating as well. I didn't really get any of Luke. They got really fast, so it would take a better cameraman than I.
Luke is always trying to get Blake play crazy sports... like skate boarding. This is her giving the ramp her first try.

My mom wanted a picture of all the kids in their new outfits she got them. It didn't go so well. Everyone but Lucy was crying, and she just kept trying to eat leaves. Cody is on the milk box, and left to right, Lucy, Macey, and Blake.
Blake, the turtle, with her cute dad as we walked around the neighborhood. Okay, like a street and a half... Blake didnt' understand why we would keep walking when there was stuff in her purple pumpkin for her to play with! She kept stopping, sitting down, and reaching in.
Blake, Camryn, Oakley, and Camden went to the Zoo (obviously when it was still warm) and they loved it! We want to go back again soon Tricia! (hint hint) Blake was just walking, so she is a little unsteady at this point.
Blake and Camryn sitting on Isaac. They have been spending lots of time running around in the sand pile and the pasture. They love it! (Until the two weeks of Arctic Temperatures put an end to that)

Happy Birthday Blake! You are now 1 years old and I can no longer say "my Baby Blake".
A few things I love about Blake that I want to remember:
- She does open mouth kisses to me, her dad, and her dog
- She walks around with both hands high up in the air like a football referee signalling Touchdown
- She loves to eat anything she can put in her mouth herself, and despises eating from a spoon
- She loves to go fast... on anything... horses, 4-wheelers, her push wagon
- She laughs everytime her dad throws her into the lovesac
- She loves to be outside, especially either dirty or wet
- She loves to pour the dog's water bowl onto her lab 3 or 4 times a day
- She breathes heavy when she's excited instead of laughing... it is like a dog panting
- She only has 3 teeth, and has had 3 teeth for a month... they do not come in pairs apparently
- She only likes to sleep in her bed, and she snuggles with a big white polar bear
- She loves her mom and dad!
We had a great birthday on last Wednesday, the 16th. We had a party for our family out at the farm, and we had cake and ice cream and all the kids got to play in the sandbox and ride horses.
I did a caterpillar cake to go along with the Book "The Hungry Caterpillar". It turned out pretty cute... lots better than the practice one a few weeks before.

Blake started taking a few steps at 11 months, but hasn't really been walking much until recently. This is her favorite toy push wagon, which she either pushes or stands inside of all day long!

My dad waterskiing!
Luke catching some waves at San Clamente. I surfed too, but surprisingly I wasn't up on the board long enough for anyone to document it!
Luke's friend Joe came down from LA to surf for a day.
Right outside our beach house, maybe 10 yards into the water, a group of dolphins swam by.

It is not religious at all, I am not sure why they use that title. It is just one man's ramblings and internal dialogue (similar to JD on the show SCRUBS) and it is hilarious!
I've done a few neutral car seat covers, for those practical people who want one for both boys and girls.
