My baby is one.

And she is a very cute one. She is also fast becoming spunky, opinionated and loud like a couple of her big sisters.

She still doesn't have any teeth.

She loves to dance.

She is standing briefly on her own. She is not walking, not yet, but she will be soon.

She is as huggable as she looks. We are so thankful for her.

my Birthday weekend

My family made my birthday weekend so lovely. I was so thankful to have my parents here.

Rodney made me one of my favorite meals on Saturday - feta and roasted red pepper stuffed flank steak with new smashed potatoes. We finished the evening off with cheesecake and wine over several rounds of cards.

And on Sunday, Rodney spent the majority of the afternoon smoking a pork shoulder. Yum. It was a slow, quiet day - my favorite kind of day.

Sunday afternoon sunshine and time in the hammock made for some special pictures of the girls too. I am a blessed mama.
