(Baby's 1st) Memorial Day

We had a BBQ in our backyard to celebrate your 1st Memorial Day:)

Daddy blew bubbles for you for the 1st time.
You really liked watching them float all around!

And then, after everybody went home, you gnawed on a frozen bagel for awhile & got crumbs all over the couch;-)

8 1/2 months:)

You get more comments on your big blue eyes than anything else;-)
(In second place would be how smiley & happy you always are.)

Here you are with your "Anti-Pauff"...aka...your Auntie Dylan.
And look at you, you big girl...standing on your own 2 feet!

Here you are with Papa, practicing your newest skill: waving HELLO:)
Sometimes you wave inwards at yourself instead of out at the person who is saying HI to you. I know it won't last but Daddy & I think its just the cutest!

I think you own more hoodies than your Dad & I combined.
And that's sayin' something!

You sure do love your "Gi's"!
That's what you call Casey & Lucy...your (Dog) GI (es)!

Yes, that's right. Mama bought a basket & put you inside of it so that she could take your photo.
This type of behavior should come as no surprise to you by now.

Not that you minded! You smiled the whole time:)

Purple stripes + hot-pink/green soled shoes = RAD

Man, kid. You are just too cool for school;-)

Mama's 1st Mother's Day

My 1st Mother's Day was SO special:)

Flea Market fun in the morning...
Dinner with the family...
Loads of cards & gifts, including a scratch-off lottery ticket that ended up being a $100 winner!! (Many thanks to Alisa for that one!)

Thank you so much to everyone for all of the Mom's Day love:)

Check out this cool plaque Dylan surprised me with (on behalf of Stella, of course!)

Stella bought me matching Mommy & Baby tambourines so that she & I can play music together...

...and Rob bought me my very first pair of real Oakleys!
Ooh, la la.

Check him out, by the way.
He was rockin out on Rachel's guitar for awhile.
There's no mistaking he's the Daddy of a baby girl now, is there?! :)

Speaking of Rachel...she & Stella had so much fun playing together!

How cute are they?! I mean, really:)


Today is Stella's *8-month birthday* & the personalized hat I bought her to wear on the day she was born FINALLY fits:~)

BTW: She started to wave hello on Saturday & it just might be the cutest thing ever.

My New Favorite:)

I've always loved baby hats on Stella.

But my newest favorite thing on her...?

Baby Leggings!

How funny & cute are they?! :)

Ok, ok...
Enough pictures, Mom!
It's time for TUMMY TIME:)
