So many changes in a year..

Countless nights of interrupted sleep. Watching Ellen at 3 am. Calling mom with questions. Trips to the doctor. Tiny socks and little blankets. Sticky fingers. Spongebob Squarepants. The Alphabet song and Little Bunny Foo Foo. Dr. Suess. Peek-a-boo. Winnie the Pooh stories. Outlet covers. The bottom half of the fridge being covered with alphabet magnets. Packing a diaper bag. Washing tiny plates and tiny spoons. Toys scattered across the floor. Seeing everything through the eyes of a child; the zoo, Christmas, different foods, snow, windshield wipers, the stars.

This has been the most amazing year of my life. I can't even describe how much I love this little girl. I'm overwhelmed today with how grateful I am for the gift we were given one year ago.

Happy Birthday Isabella!

Busy Bees

We've been busy busy busy! I've been busy working, working, cleaning, working.. oh yeah and planning for Isabella's birthday party! Bella turns 1 this Friday. I seriously can't wait!

And Bella has been busy getting into everything. She is walking and she is definitely my tiny lil' explorer. I like looking at this milestone chart and seeing what she should be doing. Most of the time she has hit the advanced skills before the end of the month. Such a little smarty pants!
Be prepared for lots of pictures in the next couple of weeks!

My sister and I started doing a fitness routine called Zumba at Studio 48. The first class was yesterday and it is such a blast! I've been wanting a good workout lately but I'm not really into running or weight training. The hour flew by even though we had no idea what we are doing. Zumba is a Latin rhythms dance class and apparently it's the new hottest thing. I hadn't even heard about it until my sister asked me if I wanted to start going to this class with her.

I have a funny story about this.. my 8 year old niece is in the competition dance classes at Studio 48. When she heard that me and Skye were going to start doing the Zumba class at her dance studio she asked if we were going to be in the recital. Ha ha I can't even imagine having to dance in the recital at this age!
