My sweet friend (Jennifer) snagged me away for a WONDERFUL girl's weekend for my naturally David got to spend the weekend with his two favorite little ladies. He took them in the backyard for a little photo shoot and I just had to share some of my favorites!

Is it just me or she is looking WAY too old these days!!

Pretty eyes....that she uses to get away with murder around our house!!!

I love this picture

And this one. Even though it came out blurry.

Say cheese


Look at all of my teeth!

My baby is 18 months old

Eden turned 18 months old on April 2nd but mommy forgot all about her 18 month old check up (oops) so we had to re-schedule for yesterday. She did great - even with the two shots she received.

I'm not sure I ever posted her 15 month old stats so I'll start there:

Weight: 29 lbs. 3 oz. (97%)
Height: 34 inches tall (97%)
Head: 47.5 (75-90%)

Her 18 month old stats:

Weight: 31 lbs. 8 oz. (97%)
Height: 35 inches tall (97%)
Head: 48 (75-90%)

I just cannot believe how old she is looking (and acting!) these days. Just to give you a reference, when Ella was 18 months old I had a 1 month old as well! Apparently I am behind...

Giving Pooh a kiss. She's not usually so attached to him but for some odd reason she would NOT let go of him until we got back home. I think it was because Ella was at home with the nanny. Eden did not like that she wasn't there.

Say cheese!

It's been a GREAT week!

Thanks to all of my family and friends for making my 28th birthday UNFORGETTABLE!!

I came home from work to a decorated front porch and kitchen (thanks Linda!!), then we went out to dinner and then we came home to eat some YUMMY rice krispy treats "cake" (thanks again Linda!) accompanied by some cookies and ice cream (thanks Jennifer!!) I loved every single minute of it!

The Sunday before my birthday we all got up and got dressed for church....or so I thought! David surprised me and took me, the girls and Auntie Ashley to Bread Winners for brunch and then we stopped by the Farmers Market in Downtown Dallas which I LOVE!!!!

We bought some carrots, pears, corn on the cob, green beans, pineapple and cantaloupe. YUMMMY!!!

If you've never bought FRESH fruit or veggies, I highly recommend it!

The next day while David prepared our dinner on the grill, I hooked the girls up with a little Doritos tea party. It was a hit! Ella got to use my very special New England tea set and she was in heaven!

Eden could have cared less about the "very special tea set" because she had Doritos. :)

It was a mess, but they had a blast.

Sweet, cheesy baby!
Again, thanks to all for my birthday wishes, cards, phone/Facebook messages and presents! I LOVE YOU!

we love our aunt chelsea!!!

There's simply nothing better than opening up mail that is NOT bills!!! I came home from work a couple of weeks ago to a package from my friend Chelsea. Inside were two ADORABLE dresses for the girls! I quickly changed them and took them outside in the backyard to get some pictures because the sun was setting and it was such a beautiful day. They still don't love the camera in their faces but below are a few good shots.


I love this one. The girls love to hold hands so I try to get as many pictures as possible of this period in time because I'm sure the day is coming where this will not be the case.

She actually smiled when I asked her to!!! IMPROVEMENT!

Sweet Ella

I love how the sun is hitting her in this shot.

This face means she is up to something.....or using the bathroom. :)

Sweet Eden

Same shot as above but just in color.
THANK YOU CHELSEA!!! You are loved from afar!!!
