It is now a year since we had the sweetest little baby in the world join our family! I can’t imagine life without her! Babies bring work but I would say the joy is doubled and tripled in our home since she was born. Thank you Lord!
This picture was taken right after she was born and she started sucking her thumb 🙂 I still almost can’t believe I had a 10 pound baby naturally! *chills* Although I sure wouldn’t want it any other way. I loved my midwife.
Here’s her 1 month picture! She lost some weight and puffiness after she was born and it took her a little while to gain weight but she had a good start so I wasn’t really worried.
Her hair got a lil wild as she got older 🙂 She is so wide eyed and beautiful!
And of course every few months we have to have a photoshoot with Aunt Julia so we get good quality pictures! 🙂 She’s just starting her own website over at Capturing Jewels so be sure to check that out as she has quite the eye for photography!
At 4 months old she already loved being outside and there were a few beautiful days in February so Julia and I bundled her up and we went out on a walk! She loved it!
One of my all time favorite photos of her. Julia and I were trying to have a photoshoot with her outdoors but it proved to be a very windy day and I did NOT want her getting an earache, so we decided to put it off till later. After getting into the house we discovered this picture and decided it would definitely be good enough. In fact, recently, my sister-in-law wanted to make a canvas for Shania, and wanted a good picture, so I sent her this one 🙂
I just have to smile widely when I see this picture 🙂 Such a ‘charmer’!
We got tickets for the St Louis Cardinals game and it was on the day that she turned 9 months old. Such a great way to celebrate 😉 We gotta train her in while she’s young 🙂
Her favorite thing is clapping her hands and she gets all excited when we cheer for her and promptly starts clapping!
We were at a friends wedding in the afternoon of her 11 month birthday and she was happy to be released and able to run around in my brothers house by the time we got there!
Her one year photoshoot 🙂 Gotta love those lil teeth!
So thats pretty much what my life consists of right now, keeping after a 1 year old, keeping her fed, clothed, diapers changed and all that good stuff 🙂
