Estee's First

I can't believe she's One!

My little girl is one! I can't believe how quickly the year has flown by, but at the same time I can't ever imagine life before she was here. We had a great day, we went to a sealing this morning and Chris' Mom watched her. She had an absolute blast because her cousins were there also. After the sealing I picked her up and we went to the reception, we had to leave early to pick up my Mom; Both Estee and I were so excited to see her. We went to dinner at the Italian village (a little Italian restraunt in Salt lake that is YUMMY) and then came home and let Estee dig into her cake. All day I have been remembering this time last year that I met my sweet girl and was forever changed instantly. I can't believe how she has affected me, how I want to be better just for knowing her, how much I can really love. Posted by Picasa

A new love

She has fallen in love with books. It's all she wants to do all day long. I have read to her about 20 times already today, she just keeps walking up to me shoving the book at my leg. And when she can't get me to read to her, she reads to herself... so cute! Posted by Picasa

Special day

I woke up this morning knowing that today would be a special day. We went to Alan's grave and just sat in silence for a while, then Chris talked about him and I listened. I am so excited for the day that I can meet my husband's big brother, so happy that I know that I will... look forward to that very special day.
After, we went to Chris' parents house and BBQed and just hung out, always so great to get together and enjoy family.
Tonight I went out to dinner with all of my husband's friends wives. One of his best friends is getting married on Wed. and so all the girls got together while the guys went up to Park city. We had dinner at the melting pot (my favorite). A really great night, but a late night, dinner was over three hours long and by the end Estee was fussy and exhausted.
I've got a busy week ahead, hopefully I can get just a little bit of sleep. Posted by Picasa

Birthday party!

Today Chris, Estee and I went to our niece Tess's 4th birthday party. It was such a great little birthday party and Estee had a blast trying to play with the big girls! Tess was such a doll and made me laugh so hard because she was trying to be so serious the whole time even though you could tell she was soooo excited about her party, she has such a darling little personality and is just a cool little girl! Anyways, picked up some photos to scrap, I'm especially excited because I did some enlargments, can't wait to use some big photos on my layouts.  Posted by Picasa

Some of my favorites from the day...

Lunch group was at my house, it was alot of fun. After lunch we went to the park and the kids seriously had a ball. I took about 400 pictures and got a ton of great shots. Love these kids, love them more than I could have imagined I'd love my friends kids. They are so unique, such individuals, love watching their personalities develop. Both Estee and I are so lucky to have them in our lives. Posted by Picasa

Random shots from today

Took Estee to the park today... sooo nice to have such a great park right across the street. Took the middle picture in one of those dome mirrors there , kind of a neat shot I liked the perspective.  Posted by Picasa

My little baker

She helped me bake a cake today. Maybe the cutest thing I've ever seen in this apron from anthropologie. She was actually quite a mess by the time we were finished, but we had quite a time! Posted by Picasa

Favorite toy

This is Estee's favorite toy... Ann bought it for her at Easter time and she still loves it, although it is for sure on it's last leg. She has figured out how to push the button and make it spin and it's dying quick.  Posted by Picasa
