and a year has gone...


I still cannot get over the fact that my baby is a year old. I have been reminiscing this past week about the past year - flipping through old photos, looking at smaller baby clothes... and finding myself slightly sad that my baby is not really a baby anymore...

...but, honestly, little miss schmutz just keeps on getting more fun with age! I have so much fun with her now a days, that my sorrow about not being able to rock a baby while she sleeps is over come with a new found fun that is the toddler age.

and besides, who could not love such a rambunctious girl! This picture captures her spirit the best - a pure spitfire of energy - complete daddy girl.

but i just wanted to drop a note before we head out this evening for the long weekend out in the Utahan country! have a great independence day!!!!

Happy Birthday, Ashlyn! What a cutie. I can't believe it has already been a year, either! That means Emma is just behind and it is just crazy how time flies.

Sara, can you email me directions on how to get big pictures up? I love your blog and the pictures always look so good!

Haapppppy Birthday Dear Ashlyn!! Time does go by fast. It's almost been 2 years since you've got pregnant, and we've been to cancun!! it seems like yesterday. We're gonna expect you to blog lots when you are up in Washington...

P.S. Your blog does always look really good :) I agree! And I love how you soften up the colors, and blacken some of the corners... you are so talented!

I LOVE the toddler stage too! I've found that they keep getting more fun as they age.
