Look Who's One!

I blinked and a whole year flew by.  I can't believe my baby is one.  We had a mini photo shoot this morning and she would not hold still at all (as can be expected).  All three of my girls have worn this dress as well as their older cousin who gave it to us. 

Here are some of her accomplishments: she has 8+ teeth.  I think she's working on molars right now.  At least I hope that's why she's been ornery and drooling.  She loves eating paper-homework, toilet paper, kleenex, candy wrappers, and anything else her siblings leave on the floor.  She likes to pull hair-her own as well as her sisters and moms.  She pulls her own hair while she's relaxing or going to sleep.  So these cute piggies in the picture won't last very long. 

She's a fast little booger.  She can get into toilets or cupboards faster than you can imagine.  We're trying to get into the habit of closing the bathroom doors. 

She loves her siblings and they adore her too.  Little Man can't wait for her to wake up every morning so he can play with her before he goes to school.  We have a morning ritual of fighting over who gets to hold her.

She is definitely loved.  She has brought a lot of joy and excitement to our family over the last year.

Catching up.

It's been a while-I know. I won't post all the pictures from the last three months, but here are some highlights.
The kids had a dance recital right before Christmas.  Both girls are in Jazz, Big Man and Little Princess are in ballroom.  It was cute.
This may have been the only time there was snow.  We went sledding over in Fountain Green.  It was fun.  We wanted to go back, but the weather isn't cooperating.

Some days I get a lot done, some days we just lay on the couch and snuggle. 

I love this picture.  The big girls had pedicures at Grandma's.  She would not be left out.  She had to sit with her feet in the water as well.  She loved it and splashed water everywhere.

Thank goodness for cute hairstyle ideas online.  I am not good at coming up with my own, but I can sure follow someone else's.  One was definitely easier than the others.

Someone's birthday is coming up and she's trying out her new carseat.  I can't believe how big she's getting and that a whole year has flown by.

Valentine's boxes.  I'm not sure if it's an activity I enjoy or dread.  The princess castle we were able to reuse from a previous year.  The hunter was a makeover for our cowboy from last year.  Stampy Longnose and the Owl are new.  The OCD in me wants to do it all myself, but the lazy part of me says-sure do it yourself.  The Owl I think turned out pretty cute.  It's a Pinterest Success!

These cute boys are enjoying scouts.  Big Man got his Bear, Little Man got his Bobcat.

We all love when daddy comes home.
