one year old
Photobucket

for the record, i am fully aware that what i'm about to do is totally ridiculous
that is i am about to post t-w-e-n-t-y pictures of this little girl
all taken today
her birthday

i know, ridiculous
especially since she wasn't really into the photo shoot
and i don't really feel like i ever got that one golden gem i was hoping for
nevertheless...1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20
get ready

like i said, she wasn't that into it

Photobucket

my first attempt outside on the grass was not so successful
besides capturing these most lovely crocodile tears

Photobucket

so we moved it inside
where she fully vetoed the wearing of her matchy match headband
despite the jingling of many bells in an attempt to keep her hands busy and clear of the headband

Photobucket

so out came the suckers
and we had more success

Photobucket

even outside

Photobucket

and never can a photo shoot take place without some big brother interference

Photobucket

beck's interference was on account of him seeking comfort after a clubhouse hand smash

Photobucket

so despite K's aversion, we tried the grass again. this time with more success,
mostly because she's gripping a grass covered sucker in that little right hand of hers

Photobucket

that she later replaced in her mouth, grass and all
but not before the moment of confusion as to why i kept scooting back as she crawled closer

Photobucket

we moved it back inside after the grass snack

Photobucket

and as long as there was a yummy sucker
there was a happy baby

Photobucket

who is ocassionally taking tiny steps!

Photobucket

and peeking out windows
this is one of my favorite faces
when i'm holding her she often leans forward
so curious to peer around me to see all there is to see
and i love it

Photobucket

um, we've now arrived at the point where the pictures all basically look the same
and yet i couldn't leave them out...

Photobucket

have you ever seen a one year old without teeth?
i haven't

and if you go get your maginifying glass
and scooch up real close to your screen
you'll see that this one year old does indeed have a very small
an almost invisible
a teeny tiny
baby tooth

Photobucket

still can't see it? i promise it's there
we spent many a sleepless night growing it

and finally a few of suckerless happy smiles

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

happy birthday my beautiful baby K
it's so fun to watch you grow, although i'll miss this precious first year

this bittersweet is a little lopsided
a lot bitter
little bit sweet
Photobucket

.the.end.

Darling pictures ... and yes, I wish there were more!

I totally understand the lopsided bittersweet-ness. (Though, trust me, it does start to get even out a bit.)

Two of my kidlets didn't grow teeth until a little later (K was 13 months, E was 11 months.) It must run in the family :) !!

so sad to see our little babies turn one. I have been in tears off and on all week long thinking of Brysban turning one on Thursday. She is so cute and I love her dimples. I am hoping Brysban will not throw a fit with all the pictures that I plan on taking of him tomorrow. Love your posts.
