And my heart just exploded into a million little pieces

This girl, makes my world go round. Just what I needed after today - hubby how did you know??

Old friends and a little fairy dust

Can't beleive it's Monday and another weekend has flown by! Seriously - you blink and poof, they are over!

This weekend was Sophia's bff's 1st birthday party. Miss Ally who happens to be the gorgeous daughter, of my oldest friend (19 years and counting) Aimee.
We've been looking forward to Ally's party for a few months now, especially once Aimee told me she was going to have a "fairy themed" party - SO CUTE!

Toadstool cupcakes and fairy dust??!! The girls all dressed up in their best tu-tu's and fairy wings. LOVE IT!
Sophia had a blast! I love seeing my girl discover new things, make friends, and have fun!

While Sophia was having fun, and playing with her friends - I got the chance to catch up with my girls. Do you have friends, where no matter what's going on in life, no matter how long it's been since you've called or gotten together, the second you do it's like no time has passed? They love you unconditionally, with all your faults, have seen you at your very best and also at your very worse? They can make you laugh, and laugh until you pee your pants (true story THIS happened Saturday!).
Yep, these are those girls. I love, love, love them.

Happy first birthday Ally girl! We can't wait to celebrate many more!
We love you!!!!!!

What we’ve been up to lately

Someday I will start posting a little more regularly, between a very active, oh-so cute 14 month old & 13 hour workdays, I’m finding it hard to fit in time for, well ME. Moms, how do you do it? After little miss goes down, I am wiped! And forget getting up earlier than I already have to. After 14 months, I would have thought I would have had this whole "mom's free time" thing down, but sad to say I'm no better off than I was when Sophia was first born. But she is worth it!!

The last month and a half has been fun! Sophia’s personality is coming through more and more, and she is such a little ham!

She is like tornado, running through the house, talking up a storm, dancing, or as we like to call it "the booty pop" to see it in action is hysterical. A few of her favorite words:

"what's that?"
"mama & papa"
"mimi" (for minnie who she adores!)
"All done"

She's also learned to climb, much to her mama and papa's dismay. So far we haven't had any accidents, I'm praying it stays that way!

She loves spending time with her Cousin Ian, who she refers to as "EEEEE". I can't tell you how happy it makes me to see my two favorite little people together and happy.

She's starting to play on her own - which is seriously the cutest thing I've ever seen. She loves little people, reading, and of course her baby!

This past weekend we celebrated Labor Day, at Aunt DD's and Uncle Tom's, where Sophie and Ian had lots of fun!!

These last few months, have been amazing and I am so looking forward to what fall has in store for our little family!
