ACTUAL 1st BIRTHDAY...How we spent our day!

Taking a bath...ready to party!!! (As mentioned in the title of this post, these photos are all on Braelyn's actual birthday, Monday, April 25th.)

We went for a walk!  It was so bright, but she wouldn't keep her baby sunglasses on!

Mama pushed me in my swing!

We took out all the toys and played A LOT!

We had snacks. (By the way, Parent's Choice has some great Little Puffs...just as good as Gerber.)

Time for presents!  She got so many great toys and clothes!

Baby Cinderella!

We'll play with the water/activity table a lot this summer!


The after dainty little eater even got cake in her hair!

With her new baby and sheep, getting ready for bed.  She was reading her favorite book, "Moo, Baa, La, La, La" By Sandra Boynton (I highly recommend her books!)

I'm FINALLY going to take the Princess Decorations down this afternoon.  We celebrate every day like it's her birthday!

Happy 1st Birthday, Little Peanut!!!  Mama loves you so much!!!


Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi All,

Part II of Birthday/Easter Photo Overload is going to wait today.  I have another agenda...

Please read what my favorite Mom Blogger had to say in a recent post:

You may or may not be aware of blogs known as “hater websites”.  They write nasty blog posts about other bloggers and then others chime in further with nasty comments.  This weekend I was targeted.

I wanted to let them know that they were successful with their goal of spreading hate.  Some of the comments were really hurtful to me and my family.  My 1 year old daughter is described as ugly and compared to a troll.  Other comments spread blatant lies.  I’m not sure why people would get so much pleasure out of spreading hate and hurting people.  I also don’t understand why they would follow my blog if they despise me so much. 

I don’t sling mud in their direction so I’m not sure why they find it necessary to attack me and my family, especially my daughter.

I have followed this blog since I found out that I was pregnant with my daughter.  I am so sickened by the cruelty in this world, especially towards such a lovely woman with such a beautiful little family.  Her daughter, Charlotte, is such a pretty, smart little girl, with the most beautiful eyes and smile!

NOTE:  If any of my readers are aware of these "Hate Sites", please message me with the details.  I would love to help put a stop to this immediately.  I get the whole "freedom of speech" thing, but what are these women teaching their children???

The Day After...PART I

Well, I survived.  I didn't die of a broken heart.  My little girl turned 1 year and we actually had a very fun day!  I only squeezed out a few tears.  The fun is really just beginning.  That's what I have to remember.  There are so many more good memories to come!

Here are a few Easter/Birthday Weekend pictures...I'll catch up, I promise.
Getting ready for her 1st Easter and her Princess Birthday Party!

My 1st Easter Basket!!!

My beautiful tutu and monogrammed onesie that my Mama made me...I was so tired from all the activity!

Grandma helped me find my first egg!

Swinging with Grandma!

My first taste of cake!  Loved the frosting!

PART II comes tomorrow...

Have a great day!

Happy 1st Birthday, Princess Braelyn!!!

Today is the's my Little Peanut's 1st Birthday!!!  I am so excited, yet so sad.  How did this happen?  Where did the time go?  I am going to enjoy every minute that I possibly can with my Birthday Girl, so I'm keeping this extremely short.  I will have pictures from Easter and our Princess Party, with details, tomorrow.

Happy Birthday, Sweet Baby Girl!  Mommy loves you with all of her heart!!!
Have a wonderful April 25th...I know we will!!! =)

Walking in a Winterish/Springish Wonderland

Is it Spring?  Or Winter?  We don't know either...

How about a before and after???

BEFORE (YESTERDAY MORNING, April 19, 2011...9am)

AFTER (THIS MORNING, April 20, 2011...8am)
See how the poor trees are bending in the background?  The snow is heavy!  We are all so tired of snow and cold!!!

Here is one last picture that I took...just before I walked back inside...
I truly am a Wisconsin Girl, if I took the time to find a little beauty in our snowy scenery, so late in April, when we are all craving sunshine and green grass! (Or maybe because I saw the weather and know that this white **** will only stick around for a couple of days!)

Have a good one and stay warm!

Here Comes Peter Cottontail...and Peanut's 1st Birthday!

Hi Everyone!
We've been super busy, sorry for the lack of posts! 

The big news of the day?  MORE SNOW!!!  UNBELIEVABLE!!!

Here are a couple of pictures of the start of it...
Little Braelyn's Swing...won't be used for a few days now...
Just minutes within the start of the snow...I'm hearing 10-12 inches!!!???
That's enough to make me sick!  The Easter Bunny is coming, Mother Nature...LAY OFF!!!

I am busy preparing our house for the BIG 1st BIRTHDAY PARTY on Easter Sunday, too.

We are having family over to celebrate both holidays AND Miss Braelyn will share her Princess Party with her cousin, Savannah, who turns 4 in just a few days. 

We're going to have cake, cupcakes, soups and sandwiches.  I'm decorating with a Pink Princess Theme. (OF COURSE!)

Here's my little sweetie, taking a bath this morning...age 11 Months, 3 Weeks and 1 Day...
Yes, she has taken a bath every single day since her cord fell off.  In other (related) news, yes, I shower every day (during her nap) and do full hair and make-up.  Don't judge, we're high maintenance girls!

Have a wonderful day!!!

More Firsts and Weekend Happenings

Happy Monday!

Wow, we had some crazy weather yesterday afternoon/evening here in Wisconsin!  We were under a tornado warning and even went and sat in the basement for 30 minutes.  Yikes.  All is well though.  No damage, just frayed nerves.

I have a lot of cute pictures to post, but will probably break them up into a couple of days, so that I don't overwhelm anyone! (Ha!)

Now that the weather is getting nicer, Braelyn has been enjoying a cookie at the picnic table with Mama almost every day.  She likes to look at the water (river) in our backyard and listen to the loud geese.

(Side note...check out one of my fave Mom Blogs for a really sad goose story...)

Here are a few of my recent favorite pictures...

First cookie picnic!
Warm weather also means walks in the stroller!  (I made a note to myself, "must buy baby sunglasses"...notice her little squint/frown?)  It's bright out for us fair-skinned gals!
Daddy put up her new swing!  We thought she'd be scared of it, but she loved it!!!
14 DAYS until my Lil' Peanut turns 1 YEAR!!!

Seriously cannot believe it...
