Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to the man I love. There is something special about a Dad and his daughter-a bond, a trust, a love. I could watch David and Addie play all day. It melts my heart. Dave, thanks for all you do for me and Addie. We love you. I'm so glad that we have a day to celebrate Dads. They deserve it.

The Birthday Girl

Guess who had a birthday!?! Our Addie May is 1! Wow, that seemed like the fastest year of my life. I try to enjoy each and every day because I know tomorrow she was be a day bigger, older, and wiser. ;) Sometimes, I wish I could keep her as my little baby forever...but part of the joys of parenthood is seeing your child learn and grow. It still amazes me how much they change over the course of this first year. What an adventure! Addie is such a sweet, independent little girl. We are so LUCKY! We love our little one year old.

This photo captures the little personality of our Addie May. Screaming is what she does BEST!

I got called off of work on Addie's birthday, so I quick put together some cupcakes, candy, and lanterns for a small little birthday celebration. Here's our little birthday girl ready for some fun!

Like everything else, Addie had to try to touch the flame of the candle! Luckily, we were right there to prevent a birthday burn.

Addie picked off the frosting of her cupcake first. Eventually, she nibbled on some of the cupcake. Addie is a VERY slow this was a long process.

PRESENTS! Finally, Addie has some new toys to play with! Thanks to everyone for all the birthday wishes and presents. We heart you!
