Happy Birthday Randi!

One year ago today I held my baby girl in my arms for the first time. I can't believe she's a year old already. It has went by so fast. I love every minute of every day that I get to spend with her. I am truly so very blessed. Happy Birthday Randi! Mommy and Daddy love you so very much!!

Birthday Party

We had Randi's first birthday party on Saturday at our house. We had originally planned on having a huge party but due to everyone's schedule we had to settle on a small get-together which turned out perfectly. Just the grandparents and a few of randi's cousins and a couple of aunts and uncles were in attendance but we had a great time. Randi did so well. She loved unwrapping the presents and especially loved her cake. Her actual birthday isn't until the 18th but I can't wrap my head around the fact that she will be a year old very very soon. It went by so fast! She's talking a lot more, well baby talk, but she does say baby, mom, dad and dog. And we do animal sounds and we'll ask her what the lion says and she roars. It's absolutely hilarious. She has such the little personality, she's so much fun to be around. She'll stand on her own now but has yet to take her first steps but I'm sure those will be coming soon. She still sleeps like a newborn, getting up several times a night but I've gotten used to the lack of sleep so it's ok. She's precious and happy and lights up my life.

Another Tooth!

Having fun playing

My first 4th of July

Swimming in my little pool

Finally Randi has gotten her second tooth, it's right next to her first one on the bottom. It popped up on Thursday. She's nearly a year old and only two teeth. She wants to eat real food so bad but without any chompers she just can't have much. She loves mashed potatoes though! Randi's first birthday is fast approaching and we were going to have a big bash for her but so many of my family members wouldn't be able to attend so we have decided on having just something small at our house with just the grandparents and us. That's all we need anyway right? I wish we could have done something bigger, I had such a vision in my head. Maybe next year. Randi is doing so many new things these days. She is shaking her head yes now and will shake it yes if we ask her if she is hungry or wants a bottle. She was just shaking it "no" previously. She waves bye and is standing on her own at times. She hasn't gotten brave enough to try to walk on her own but she can cruise right along when holding on to something.

I have to get her One Year pictures taken, we have tried several people in the past and I'm quickly coming to the conclusion that I need to learn more about photography and buy a good camera and take the pictures myself. Any suggestions? I am literally a huge dummy when it comes to cameras. I can barely work my cheap digital one that I have. But we have been spending small fortunes every time we get her pictures taken and it will be totally more cost effective if I can learn to do them myself. Can't be that difficult right if you have the right equipment?

Well, it's time to put Randi to bed. Hope you all are doing well!

(I have yet to figure out how to get my pictures to post in the right order, sorry!)

1st Trip to the Zoo

This past Friday I took off of work early and we packed up the car and headed to the zoo. I totally dislike the Zoo, we always seemed to have field trips there when I was little and I never liked it and can distinctly remember throwing up my lunch on one specific trip to the zoo. I am not an outdoorsy person by any stretch of the imagination and am quite possibly the most girlie girl when it comes to animals and bugs. They creep me out. But and this is a very big but, there is not one thing on this earth that I won't do for my daughter, so to the zoo we went. It's not like Randi said to me, "Mom, you know what I'd really like to do today? I'd like to go to the zoo." But being as she is only 10 months old, there are very limited things that she "likes" to do and she loves seeing animals. We stand out on our deck and watch the squirrels and birds and rabbits and she just loves it. She always just watches in amazement so I thought for sure she'd love going to the zoo. It was a beautiful day on Friday and it wasn't too crowded and she did love the zoo. She loved being around all the people, she loved seeing the geese and loved taking a ride on the train. We were only there two hours but she enjoyed the full two hours and that made it an awesome day. Just minutes of getting into the car and she was passed out from all the excitement. I'm glad she had a good time and I'm glad that I did not throw up my lunch. :0

Randi riding around the living room

My daughter is the coolest. She is so funny riding around on this little thing, it's by Fisher Price and it's called a corn popper. Her feet can touch the ground and she can totally move it herself but prefers to have mom or dad push her. Enjoy!

Camera Shy

Oh mom, please don't take pictures of me while I'm trying to nap.
