Yep, I am fully aware that she will be ONE a week from today, and I am just getting this done. go figure! Lately every spare minute after bedtime has gone into planning our trip to "ONEderland" Trust me after the party is said and done you will probably all be sick of hearing about it, but until then here is our 11 month old beauty!
Nobody can accuse this girl of being camera shy!! The cheese turns on even more when she sees Mommy with the camera! What a goof! When we took her in to be weighed she was 18 pounds and 15 ounces, so we are still long, but petite.
Also since we were in a time of remembrance in this house for the lives lost, and heroes made; we decided it was appropriate to remember 9-11 with her sign for the month in honor of the 343 fallen firefighters. No matter the time or month, please Never Forget.
We were happy to host Grandma and Papa over Labor Day weekend. We had a great weekend together and so enjoy their visits. My Mom clicked away and we even got some family shots! This girl is a cheese 98% of the time she sees a camera.
Well, a few weeks ago we took our opportunity to get in one last swim before the Kelly's closed the pool for the fall and winter season. I found it a bit surreal that last year at this time I was floating around lounging in the pool staying cool and comfortable, and this year we were playing and splashing with our sweet girl! What fun!
Tenley went with us to rodeo on Thursday night, but then it was time for some Mommy and Daddy time. She got to stay home and play with Grandpa Dennis so it was a win, win for everyone. Seems as though pictures of us are few and far between now, so I thought I would share this one.
I said we would have to go back a while...this is from the beginning of August when we were home for fair and rodeo.
These are some of my dearest friends, all from high school. We have pretty much all grown up together since we were the size of our kiddos. We have been through it all, the good, and the bad. Through playground fun, junior high drama, high school antics, college changes, weddings, and now babies. No matter where life has taken us or continues to go I am ever so thankful for these girls. Though we may not get to talk daily or even weekly, I always know our conversation will easily pick up right where it left off. These are the friendships people hope for and I am blessed to have them in my life. The part that makes me smile even more is that now our children will get to grow up together creating a special friendship themselves!
Wow, almost a month with no posts...FAIL! Now it is time to get you all caught up and myself back on track. We have been so beyond busy lately that any free time we do have is spent cuddling and playing with our sweet girl, and planning a visit to ONEderland (more on the birthday planning later.) I have to be honest blogging was not at the top of my list! But, tomorrow it starts. We may have to go back a month (or more) to catch up, but I promise the cuteness will make it all worth it! See you in the morning!
