And She's ONE!!!!

And She's One!! Yep, June is the big ONE today, and I cannot believe it!  It's been an amazing year of many many challenges and triumphs.  Watching her grow from day one has been Incredible, and I would do it all over again,  Well, let me back up a bit.  I would do it all over again minus the first three/four weeks of bringing her home...ROUGH!!! There is no preparation for it and I've never been so tired in my life!  Just being honest! The challenges of being a parent are real.  It's a demanding job, but at the end of the day all is right in the world when we watch her sleep peacefully after a long day.

We look forward to her smile and singing in the mornings,  how her eyes light up when she discovers something new,  her excitement when her favorite song comes on (her right leg gets moving),  the way she laughs when she has that first bite of food,  how she puts her arm around us as we tote her around the house,  how she smiles at her Dad, how she looks to me for comfort when she falls,  her wet kisses,  her " I can do it myself" attitude,  how she laughs and we have no idea why she's laughing, how she rubs her eyes when she's sleepy, and most of all just being her parents.  She's a delight with a bit of sass.  She's our JUNE!

Backpacks are BACK!! Will you be carrying one?  I never thought I would say it, but I've got my eye on a few cuties.  The backpack would be a great Mama and June bag.  From the runway to the streets, you gotta get you a BackBag.  Ha!  I like the sound of that better! 

Let's shop. . .

8 Months...

June is 8 months, and I want her to slow it down.  She's more amazing today than she was yesterday.  She just keeps getting better.  I'm really enjoying this age, watching her grow and explore even more.   Each day she does something new.

What's June up to?  She crawls, she stands and tries to stand without holding on, she walks with me holding her hands, she plays peek-a-boo with my scarves, she loves to be chased, when I leave the room she follows me, she waves goodbye, she gives me kisses, and she loves being in the mix.  A little social butterfly!  Her foods of choice are lentils and carrots or butternut squash with brown rice, broccoli, avocado, and pasta, and besides mama's milk, she loves water.  New foods to try this week: watermelon, blueberries, and asparagus.

Check her out...
