buncha bday


Just look at that sweet lil face. So cute, so content, so...


...extremely upset. Happy birthday! (Seriously though, I love that we captured the looks on both their faces. Pure gold.)


Okay, thankfully, babies are very easily distracted. Happy birthday, take two!




Bianca had her first taste of chocolate. And basically sugar at all.

This just in: Glow worms are cute now.


(for reference. yikes.)




Well, after all the yummy food and plentiful presents, it was time to get in comfy clothes and take a nap. And Bianca was ready to relax too (HAHA i'm hilarious)


Glow worm and Jelly cat, reporting for duty!

And that's it- we now have a one year old! And I'm realizing that there just might be a thing called "the terrible ones"... At least it comes and goes. Much like her desire to bite me.

thx to my husb

it's in the details


The pics yesterday weren't just from a "hey let's get the kiddos all dolled up and take adorable pics" day. I'm finally getting into Bianca's birthday party photos, and of course it is painful to try to narrow these things down. Today I gathered up my fav pics of all the party decoration details. I had the idea of using hot air balloons somehow, and, after some good ol' fashioned brainstorming, came up with a plan for how to pull them off. Dollar store to the rescue yet again!

I seriously can't watch this enough... Her little face just melts my heart. She lit right up when she saw us sitting in the second row. We were so proud of her! She's a beautiful little dancer!
