Leah's Birthday (back in September)

So in my head I had a vision of a golden September evening as the backdrop of my outdoor party for little Leah's first birthday. Instead it was muggy, dark, and stormy, so we moved it indoors. Apart from that, it went really well!

So Leah is SO different from Ethan. Some of the things that drive me crazy: She is into EVERYTHING. She climbs on all chairs, tables, desks. She is sneaky. She is a really picky eater. She doesn't sleep very well.

Some of the things I love: She is very very cuddly. She loves to be snuggled, and in the morning at 5:30 when she decides she doesn't want to sleep in her crib anymore, I love cuddling her in our bed until 7:30 when Ethan wakes up. She loves to laugh at her brother. She loves to 'read' books. She loves to dance. She cannot tolerate it if I'm dancing with Ethan and she's not in my arms.

She is very little. She's in the 5th percentile. Probably because she doesn't EAT anything! So people are amazed when she can walk as well as she does because they think she's like 9 months or something.

I need a nice flash. Sigh..

I love the rug in your living room. Is that a rug or a quilt? Where did you get it? Do tell.

And you have a cute family. :)

It's a quilt that I found at the thrift store for 3 dollars!! It has some stains on the bottom from being wrapped up in tape or something, but I love it. It's not on the floor usually, although I like it enough I would be okay with that.
