First Birthday of my favorite one so far...

Today you turn 1 year old. A whole year has gone by since I showed up on that hospital floor not even a couple of hours after you were born.  What felt like an eternity since we were so excited to meet you and what now seems 2 minutes since your mama was still barely coherent.  She handed you to me before either of your other 2 grandmas! {Now, in my opinion that was completely inappropriate}. But you had my heart at first glance.  Until your best friend Owen comes along, I won't know how much it means to love a child of my own, but having you in my life has taught me a lot. Your face lights up so many peoples hearts and so many people think you are just the best kid ever. And I am one of them, and will always be. I can't wait to see you celebrate your first birthday and dive into that big cupcake your mama has made for you with such love and care. Be smart and sweet Wade Hefner. To many many more birthdays to come.

Love, Abby

does this come in my size?

Zulily has a cute deal today. Acoustic - a clothing line for kids - with some darling girl dresses that I really could use in my size these days.

I mean seriously? LOVE them all.

take that serena & lily

Thanks to Better Homes and Gardens I will have an cute pouf for my baby's room. 

It may not be a hot, leather one like you've seen here. But it will be made with love and stuffed with old towels and crazy things of the sort.
Go to bhg and search pouf. You can login to the site and get a lovely PDF of the instructions. Mom, get ready, we will make this happen!

decisions decisions

so I have been working long and hard to try to find the perfect fabrics for our baby's room.  I have said all along I want a nursery that doesn't look like a nursery.  No bears or zoo or sporty or whatever. I just want something simple and easy and light.  This is what I've come up with so far.

We will see how it all turns out!
