say "cheese!"...

Lately our little stinker has decided it's a good idea to put her messy, dirty hands in her hair EVERY time she eats. I'm talking...bits of pb&j, tofu, milk, eggs...anything you can think of. It's hard to get that stuff out!!!

While we were eating dinner last night, Sammie decided to take a few pics of Harlow and her avocado masterpiece. While taking pictures, we said, "! Say cheese!! Show Sammie your teeth!" All of the sudden it just clicked for her and she was posing with the CHEESIEST fake smiles! We were dying! She is such a ham, and every single smile was different from the last. She is such a crack up!

Harlow's 1st Birthday Party!

It has been a month since Harlow's big birthday bash! (I am so behind!) I LOVE the fact that Eric's family gets even more excited about themed parties than I do:) I saw a few sushi party ideas online when I was pregnant with Harlow and fell in love with the idea! So needless to say, I've been planning baby H's party for quite some time:) We had the party on my mother in law, Diane's actual birthday, and like usual, she was ready and willing to host it at her house and help prepare the entire thing, even though she should have been resting with her feet up all day! I am so grateful for our wonderful family and ALL of the help that we had with this big event...I could've NEVER done it by myself! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Until next year:) (To tell you the truth...I am already thinking of ideas for birthday #2! hahaha!...seriously though.)

The Decor:

The Food: (I realized that I didn't get a single picture of the actual food we ate for dinner:( We had real sushi and chicken, rice and eggrolls.)

Harlow -Month 12

I am so late on this post...Harlow is ONE YEAR OLD!!! I seriously cannot believe that it has been a year since we went to the hospital anxiously awaiting our little doll's arrival. Harlow has changed our lives in so many ways and we just can't imagine life without her. She brightens our day and Eric and I laugh at how many times we say, "she is seriously so cute!" to each other each and every day. We miss her when she sleeps and can't get enough of her when she's awake. She is our joy and obsession. It's sad to think that this will be the last slideshow, for awhile at least, but I have made it a priority to make sure that I continue to take tons of pictures of our little babe. I have to! Time just goes by so quickly, it makes me sick! Well, baby H has the most adorable personality and the best word to describe her is, "Sweet". She is just so loving, affectionate and caring. We love you Harlow babe!!! Happy First Year!!!
