You make me happier than I ever dreamed possible. I hope your day was wonderful... I am so happy you were born and I am so happy God shared you with me.

Look how beautiful!!!
We counted all 10 fingers and all 10 toes... These are all the toes in case it isn't clear!

(As an aside, I included this picture because you can see the big 'ol molar coming in on the bottom right. He has brought along 3 of his friends and it has been a little rough. She really is handling it like a champ, but sleeping is a little rough and most of the time she just wants to sit and snuggle... so sweet)
First Chopsticks...(Now of course she didn't actually eat with them, but when she saw us using them she tried to stack her food on the end of one- it doesn't sound nearly as funny as it really was.)

We had a fabulous party for our little half pint today. Celebrating Eden was more fun than I ever dreamed. She loved every minute- of course having no clue it was all for her! Once again I'll share WAY to many pictures, and in case it's not obvious- the theme was polka dots!
The cake was PRECIOUS and SOOO yummy. Each layer was a different flavor! For any Granbury folks I highly recommend Jennifer May for all your special occasion cakery needs he-he :).
MMMMMM.... My little brother came in from Abilene just in time for the party and then turned around and drove right back. It meant the world that he was there!
... And OH the presents!
It's so nice to have close family and friends all around!
I still can't believe it's been a year... a whole year! Oh, they're only babies for a blink aren't they?! I must say we are having more fun with her than ever before. Itis incredible how quickly they learn things! She is literally more independent everyday... a new word, a new activity, something is always new.
She now says (for my own record-keeping)- MaMa, Daddy, bye bye, night night, diaper (biper), uh-oh, nana (banana), all done (duh), book (boo), no-no (that one is pretty funny), hello (hiya-and only when she is "on the phone"), PaPa (my dad), hi, shoes (chzzz), up, baby (used for both babies and puppies) and I think she was saying Sassy (Brett's Mom) today. At least those are the words that I am certain she understands the context. She repeats lots of our sounds and words all day long!
She waves and says "hi" when she sees us. She loves to share things- her food, milk, pacifier,- and she thinks it's hilarious when we "partake".
She is very interested in putting things into or onto other things, so we find stuff all over the house in the strangest places...
She loves to dance and clap anytime there is music and knows exactly which toys will play songs.
She still loves to eat, although not quite as "crazed" as she once was. We have begun practicing with the spoon and she can use it to finish a whole bowl of yogurt- but it's not pretty folks, not pretty at all :).
She LOVES to play chase- both receiving and doing- and laughs harder than I've ever seen her.
She still signs "more", "eat", "all-done", and "bath". Those are really the only one's we've worked on- I really should do better...
She has become VERY interested in what we have and wants to have the same. Particularly with eating, which makes eating out very interesting. She will have the exact same thing in smaller bites on her plate, but she would still rather have mine- "MAMA" "MAMA" "MAMA".
She is so, so silly- just like her Daddy. It facinates me that she understands what that means, but boy does she. She will make a sound or a face or she will stick a toy on her head or you name it- simply because she knows it's hysterical. I can't tell you how much fun we have...
Oh there is so much more. I really just wanted to get some things down before I forgot them.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Eden Marie. I love you sooooo much!

She took her first step on July 4 and was walking more than crawling by about July 18th. Oh how I can see the toddler emerging!!! Oh, and yes, she does sing as she walks most of the time. We are so very proud of her...
We are beyond excited...

The first three days Eden was sick with a fever and sore throat, but with lots of prayer it left as quickly as it came!
No doubt these two are cousins...and both look like their daddies!!
Miss Eden and her "Sassy" (Brett's Mom). Bathing suit #2!
Check out the shades... Bathing suit #3!
She LOVED the ocean! Try to ignore the "yes I'm a Momma now" swim suit.
My very smart friend Rosanne gave us the idea of putting a little pool on the beach to keep sand out of little eyes and little mouths. It worked like a charm!
Brett's brother Jim, his beautiful wife Tricia and Garrett, the best cousin in the world.
Daddies and their babies.
The whole family... Sarah (Brett's Mom), Me, Tricia (Sister in Law), Tony (Brett's Dad), Brett, Jim (Brett's brother), Eden, and Garrett
Sassy & Grandpa and the Grandbabies...
