Welcome Baby Andrew!!

My sister Alexa & her husband Chad welcomed their new baby boy, Andrew Chad to the world on January 12, 2012! He is the sweetest little guy and Mom, Dad & baby are doing great! We are all so excited for them and have enjoyed watching his every move (though they are few and far between!). He is so tiny and precious and we can't get enough cuddle time! Congratulations Alexa & Chad!!

This one is for my girls, Abby, Alexa & Grammie!!

Ok, so it has been over two months since my last post, and the troops are getting restless! We have been busy...Thanksgiving, a visit from Eleanor's great Uncle Craig & Aunt Lynne, Christmas & New Years! Here are a few of the highlights:

A year of change...

I recently looked at pictures from last Halloween and WOW, a lot changes in a year! Here is Eleanor in her Halloween shirt and costume last year compared to this year...she was a cutie then and a cutie now :) I have loved every stage, change and growth of this little girls life and cannot believe we lived without her for so long! I will say that it all goes WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too fast!!

Happy Halloween!

October has come and gone and Eleanor is almost 15 months old! The weather has been absolutely beautiful in California so we've taken many stroller walks and been playing at the park as much as possible. We went to the pumpkin patch and Eleanor went trick or treating for the first time! It was so much fun, even though she was a bit confused :) Here are some fall & Halloween pics from the month of October.

The cutest duck EVER!!!

A day in the life...

We have been busy playing & partying! Today we had lunch with Grammie & Aunt Fluffy, cruised the fountains shopping center, then came home for afternoon nap. Upon wake up, we took a walk to Kohl's, did a little shopping, and then picked up dinner at Chipotle on the way home. After dinner, we partied a little more while setting up Halloween decorations. All in all, a great day!

Here are a few pics of Eleanor at 13 months old

Eleanor has become quite the little hat model! She looks so cute in all types of hats and I just love these pictures :) In July I signed Eleanor up to be a model for local children boutiques. In exchange, she gets all the merchandise modeled for free and the pictures for a small fee. It has been a fun experience and we LOVE getting the pictures :) And no, I am NOT a stage Mom!! lol :)
