The joys of a one year old

We woke up early as usual on Char's birthday and I let her open her presents. She loves new toys!

This picture makes me laugh. Doesn't she look like a red neck from the 80's? Crazy mullet and a gap toothed grin :)

Here she is watching her birthday cake bake.

Things that have changed in our lives in the last year.
1. Our bedtime has gone from 11:30 to 9:30.
2. There are fingerprints on everything in our home.
3. Toothbrushes have been known to make their way to the toilet.
4. Dog toys have been found in the cereal box.
5. The living room is booby trapped with toys
6. There are cheerios everywhere.
7. I can’t leave the house without four bags, eight sippy cups and ten pairs of socks.
8. I spend the majority of my time in sweat pant. (Not that I’m complaining!)
9. I know the names of all Caillou’s friends and family members.
10. I can’t remember the last time I went shopping alone, which makes it easy to not shop at all!
11. My love has increased ten fold and our little Charlotte has taught us what real happiness is.
Happy Birthday (last week) to my sweet one year old princess.

A post about nothing.

Rained on at the zoo
After bath hair!
Char's favorite place to hide

Well, here I am. Another year older and hopefully wiser. We have had a busy month, like always. Charlotte is ever growing and coming into her own. She is a special little girl. Are all your kids this special or is the first one really the most special? If we have any more kids they just won't get the one on one time that I can give to Charlotte. I guess that's just how it goes. We have been busy with school, as always. I'm always a little sad when Halloween ends. It means that the other two holidays will come quickly and then be over. Why do they have all the good holidays so close together? They should have spread out Thanksgiving and Christmas a few months more, don't you think? We have been going to the zoo almost every week. We love being so close. Living in the city has it's perks.
