A year already?

Time is flying by and I'm trying to soak up
every little morsel of goodness that
our little peanut brings into our lives.
She it going at turbo speed now
and into EVERYTHING.
The house looks like a tornado
has swept through and left every
room completely Josiefied.
She is all about mama
(which makes me even more smitten)
but doesn't really ever have stranger anxiety.
She will go to pretty much anyone
(although I haven't tried Santa yet)
and be a content little lady.
Her first teeth are finally coming in
on top and all at once.
Our little peanut is a sweet heart and
a firecracker all at the same time.
She's fun and frisky and a tad bit feisty.
She has captured our hearts in this
first year of life and
brings us pure joy each and every day.
We had a little evening celebration for
our sweet babe while we were in Austin.

Big J and little J

Happy Birthday little love!

Full of Thanks

The girls and I made a tree of thanks
last month to remember
and appreciate all that
we love about fall.
Of course pumpkins made the cut
 and we had a fun time
visiting the pumpkin patch.
I am so very grateful
for these girls.
They fill my life with magic.

And this guy here...I'm thankful for him
every. single. day.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Halloween ghoul & his girls

Mr. N won the prize for best googly eyes
and definitely the scariest looking
ghoul in the house
The little peanut was hands down the
sweetest little ladybug around
while her little-big sis was
 a beautiful ballerina
I went all out and dressed up
as a mom of three
and my beautiful Bri stayed home
(being grounded stinks)
and played the role of cinderella.

It was really our first Halloween at home.
We hurriedly carved pumpkins
early in the evening
before the little ones
got dressed up.
After knocking on doors
halfway up the street,
the little miss decided
we could hit the other side
and be done.
She prefers giving the candy I guess.
We had a pretty good turnout
of visitors and eventually ran out of candy
(which I was grateful for).

I think we'll be doing Halloween at
home again and again.

She's on the move

and well protected

Our littlest peanut started walking
last month
and has just begun cruising
the whole house
this last week.

We don't really keep this helmet
on her all the time,
just while she's awake...haha.
We're hoping to get her
into a bike seat soon,
but the helmet is gigantic,
and she's just really teeny-tiny.
And we love her that way.

A little more than two weeks
til our sweet babe is one.
CANNOT believe it,
but believe it I must.

I have written absolutely nothing
down about this little one's first
year of life,
which I so regret,
just trying to soak up
the moments
each and every day.
