Look who's a year already!

I can hardly believe she's already 1! 
I decided to do an unplanned photo shoot with her this morning that
lasted for about 10 minutes.  And I finally feel like I have a keeper image! 
I wish she would have one of those all out smiles, but she's still
cute like this. 

Maybe next time!
I love this little girl!

My handsome 5 year old!!

I love this little boy so much and can hardly believe that he's old enough for Kindergarten already!  It's a bit lonely even though I still have Esther (his 1 year old sister) at home.

But he is so excited to be going to school finally and everyday he gets too impatient about having
to wait till 12:10pm to go to school.  Yep, he has afternoon Kindergarten.

But he's loving it, and today just happens to be "Orange" day at school.

Happy 1st Birthday Esther!!!

A year ago today I was in the hospital waiting to have this precious little girl !  I can hardly believe that it's been a year already!  She started walking nearly 2 weeks ago, and has been so excited about it, that she actually tries to "run".   She now has 6 teeth that have broken through the gums.  
She likes cantaloupe, watermelon, strawberries, grapes. 
Bread, animal crackers, cereal.  

She sleeps from about 7:30pm at night till about 7am in the morning.  
Takes two naps a day still. 
She loves playing with her "drum" toy. 

She uses the baby sign for "more",  and "milk", "eat/food".  
She has the prettiest eye lashes that go with the perfectly round, wide open eyes!  
She sometimes will answer "yes/no" questions when asked them, with the 
appropriate head movement. 

She loves being outside! She loves our dog Amber. And now, calls 
every animal "amba"  

She says, "Mama"  and "dada" very well. 
and says a word that sounds like "brea" for "bread". 

Ethan has a special bond with her.  Pretty much from the beginning.  He beams when he sees her, and her eyes light up and a big smile flash across her face when he comes into the room.  He can seriously make her do the "belly laugh".   

She likes to grab mommy's keys, play with the "phones".  She likes anything that plays music. 

I love this little lady!  She's been an absolute blessing to our family. And she has so many people that love and adore her!  I look forward to this upcoming year and all the milestones she'll reach by the time she's 2!
