Update and iPhone pics

Wow. What a whirlwind the last couple of weeks have been! Somebody forgot to tell me how stressful it is to host a birthday party at your house. Like W-H-O-A. However, we did have a great time with our friends and family celebrating our sweet girl's 1st birthday! I still can't believe I officially have a toddler! So crazy! Ella Grace officially turned ONE on May 12th and we have been super busy ever since : ) Here are some phone pictures of what's been going on around here since my baby turned a year old.

Ella Grace's Church Dedication

We participated in the parent-baby dedication ceremony at church the day after EG's birthday. Of course she wouldn't be still for even one picture... 

1 Year Pediatrician Appointment

What makes getting shots all better? Frozen yogurt of course!

I feel like Ella Grace started acting so much older the day after she turned 1! She has been so funny lately and I have pictures to prove it.

Apparently ONE year olds...

Sit in little chairs at little tables like a big girl...

 Wear crazy outfits while pushing around their push toys...

Are too cool for school while crusin' around town with Mommy...

Ride in the "big girl" buggies in Wal-Mart...with friends...

Climb all over the couch cushions...

And use said couch cushions to reach objects she is not suppose to reach...

Use the "potty seats" in stores...

Okay. I am a little ashamed of this one, but it still cracks me up! She doesn't look happy in the pic, but she actually laughed the whole time. I was absolutely desperate to use the restroom,  I was afraid she would start crawling across the disgusting floor if I had her stand, and the buggy couldn't go inside the stall. So, was left with no choice...By the way Babies 'R Us...HUGE fail! 

And brush their teeth!

EG's two little toothies are just now all the way "up" out of the gums so we started brushing her teeth this week and she thought it was hysterical! She loved it : )

I have Sooooo much blogging to catch up on. I hope to catch up a little this week, but might not get a chance because hubby is working out of town all week and we are headed to visit him these last few days, so I won't have internet access. I hope you all have a great week!


  1. She is just precious and I love her Dedication dress!
