One. Big. Update.

I have totally abandoned this blog! Serious this time...I am going attempt to keep this place up to date because Sophia's 1st BIRTHDAY (eeek!) is quickly approaching and I'm already forgetting things.

Anyways. Soph is taking steps but not walking just yet. She loves to climb up the couch and jump around like a silly girl. She LOVES Yo Gabba Gabba, clapping, waving and saying "bah bah" (bye bye). She is in such a fun stage right now and just so happy. Everyone comments on it everywhere we go!

Phia's 1st birthday plans are starting to come together and I'm getting really excited :) We rented the picnic shelter at Activity Center Park. It has a spray park which is going to be awesome for all of the kids, especially in August. How cool is this?

Here are photos from the last couple of months. I can't believe how much she has grown!

Here's the 3 of us (this rarely happens!) -- I ordered this on canvas :)

Here's Fi-Fi in her favorite jammies

Love her smiles!

Here are Sophia's 9 month photos. Doesn't she look like such a big girl?

Call me crazy

...but I'm already starting plans for Sophia's 1st birthday. I have no idea why I'm so excited about it because all I do is talk about how she's growing up way too quickly. I realized the other day that she is going to be 8 months in just a couple days, so she's going to be one in 4 months. Holy moly. Seriously, where does the time go? I swear we just brought her home from the hospital last week.

So far I know that it's going to be a cupcake theme - so, lots of cupcakes, sweets & pink. I want a Smores Station (seriously, I'm so excited for this):

A photo booth complete with mustaches (this is going to be a work in the making, I hope I can pull it off)

and some other fun things that I'm working on. I'm way too excited for this...

I haven't updated with photos for a while. Here are a few recent ones:

My 24th

It was absolutely beautiful outside for my 24th birthday! Jordan surprised me with a Funfetti cake and a card from Sophia :) We also took Soph to see the Easter Bunny (she did so well, even smiled!) - I'll have a picture of that tomorrow.

Soph will hate me later on in life for pictures like these :) Here's a picture that I quickly snapped of Fifi with her bunny ears on

My yummy cake from Jordan

My card from Sophia...Jordan left Soph "draw" on it

7 Months

I've had no time for updating this past month...It's been a whirl wind of working & traveling!

Sophia flew in an airplane for the very first time. She did so well!

Soph is now standing and pulling herself up on everything. Here we found her standing in her crib "singing" away as she always does:

Thanks to a nice bruise on her forehead, we've had to move the coffee table out of the living room. She also has some blonde hair coming in under her "mohawk". While I'm happy that Soph will no longer be rocking the old man comb-over, I guess we'll have to get used to the skunk look of dark brown & blonde hair :)

I tried to have a little "7 Month" session with Soph but it just wasn't happening. She's way too mobile now and is totally obsessed with my camera. She just wants to nom on it. Plus, it was so cloudy & dreary outside...I had horrible lighting. This is the best I got:

This is such a standard Sophia look

Sucking in her lips

Check out my toofers!

Another classic Sophia look

I call this one "E.T."

and my favorite one

So sweet

Checking something out...

Then we headed over to mammaw & pappaw's to enjoy the beautiful spring weather we've been having. Here's Soph and her "Aunt Ca-Ca"

Okay...we've been trying to capture this face and I finally got it! She's making the "bbbpppffffff" sound with her lips
