Nothing makes me happier than to see my girl smile. The beach ,the doggy beach, makes her smile big!

inquisitive little thing :)

(so much so, that she eats their dog food...we are working on that one!)

love that leah bug

We had the best time at Leah's 1st birthday party on Saturday! I know Leah had a blast too, I could tell by the 3 hour nap she took when we got home :)

a little grass skirt just makes a luau that much sweeter!

Mahalo friends!

because she's one

How can she be so cute?
she looks adorable in hats,

devilishly cute when rummaging through my purse (after I have said no 1o times),

like pebbles with her hair in a pony tail,

and like her daddy with a click of the camera!
with her friends, I see the girl she will become: that friend that you can goof around with, the one that makes everyone laugh... that will be my girl!
check out this adorable video from our panera mornings ;)

birthday cake

birthday cake only tastes good if it is everywhere, its a researched and well known fact.yums.
i love my cake eatin' kid!

Happy Birthday Leah

1 year ago today, my little munchkin made her appearance. It was thoughtful of her to actually decide to be born (I say decide because I know she was in control), considering she strung us along for 2 days! Hooked up on pitocin twice, starved for days, watching other pregnant moms walk in after me and leave before me with thier babies was hard, but I get what she was doing...making sure we knew she was worth the wait.

Oh baby, you were were worth every second! happy 1st birthday my little leah bug

growing up

You know you are growing up when...

you eat gum and get the concept of chewing it, AND accept that it doesn't always go as planned.


You know you are growing up when...
your food isn't mashed and you can pick it up and hold it in your hands

woops again.

You know you are growing up when...
someone says "smile" and you actually do it!
sometimes better than others.

You know you are growing up when...
a cooler, big kid comes over, and you totally want to hang out with them, and they want to hang with you!

And finally, you know you are growing up when...
you can get on a chair all by yourself, kinda gracefully, and your toes touch the floor.
right before my very eyes .
I love my leah bug
