pretty on it...

thats what estee says about her sister's face...

"mommy she has pretty on it"

she also asked the other day if i could "go to the baby pet store and get her a little brother"

and she absolutely will not let me put my hair in a pony tail, every time i try she very dramatically tells me that i need to "wear it like a princess" while moving her hands in circular motions all around her face.

she is such a doll...

i am completely re decorating a good portion of our house, i have had so much fun picking out couches, bedding, paint colors, light fixtures and on and on and on... i am so excited for the painting to get finished so i can get the rest done... i am still on the hunt for a few odds and ends and i will for sure post photos of the finished product.

here is just a really small sampling of just a few of the treasures i have purchased!

bottom left is a wallpaper, top right a rug... kinda hard to tell!

the bash...

we kept simone's party pretty low key since i had just got back from vegas with my dad and sister the day before, just a bbq at the park with family and friends but it was still a lot of fun.

simone just loved being the center of attention but i am still pretty sure estee thought it was her birthday! i am so sad i didnt get a photo of her in her princess outfit and hat... too funny.

here are a few from the day...

and just because i cant let the occasion pass without posting something here are a few from daddy daughter week, all taken with ann's camera or my iphone... we had such a blast shopping, eating and lounging by the pool.

and i cant even begin to explain how great it was to see my little girls after 5 days!...

i remember when i had estee, my life litterally changed in an instant... i looked at her and no longer lived for myself, but for her.

when i was pregnant with simone i remember thinking and wondering what this little baby girl in my tummy would mean to me (obviously i knew i would love her, i already loved her so much) but more specifically what i would feel when i held her in my arms for the first time.

i will never forget the moment i met my sweet simone for the first time. i will never forget the rush of love i felt for her instantly and knew i could not ever be without her.

and today she is one.

this little girl is truly my angel, happy birthday junior!
