Birthdays are so much sweeter now that she is here!

How could they not be?!

There is NO other present that you could possibly want when you get to see that sweet little face everyday! We celebrated my husband, Bryan's, 26th birthday on Sunday. It began with a birthday breakfast at his mom's, then an afternoon family nap and ended with a delicious dinner at one of our favorite hibachi restaurants with my parents. Bryan and I always talk about how boring our life must have been before Paisley came into it.

Thursday Afternoon Playdate...

It's been one of those weeks where I feel like we haven't stopped once except to lay our little heads down at night! I'm surprised I even have time to write this blog ;)

Last Thursday, Paisley and I met a girlfriend of mine and her little girl at the park to let them play while we chased them around and caught up on what has been going on in our 'toddler world' :) Paisley wanted nothing more than to do everything Miss 'G' wanted to do! I SO want to call her Baby 'G', but that just isn't the case! She's quickly becoming quite the little lady! 'G' ran from one end of the playground to the other before Paisley had a chance to change her crawling direction :) There may be some distance in their ages, but I see a lasting friendship in the making!

Unexpected Kisses

They are the best, aren't they? They make you feel like you're doing something right. Tonight, while we were watching TV, Paisley sidestepped her little self over to the couch from the end-table and reached out for me to pick her up. I thought she just wanted to snuggle, so I propped her up in my lap and continued to watch the show. Then, she leaned forward to get my attention, grabbed my face, opened her little mouth and leaned in for a big smack on the lips! As "juicy" as it was, it was worth it! :) She then proceeded to climb off the couch and go back to playing with her toys. I turned off the TV and got down in the floor with her. It's the little things that make you realize just how lucky you are!

(I wasn't able to catch our little moment tonight on camera, so I provided a recent picture of 'snuggle time' with Daddy!)

It's almost here...

Paisley's first birthday, that is!!

I have had an absolutely blast planning Paisley's party! It's been overwhelming at times, but it helps to know that I'm doing it all for my sweet little girl! It's a princess theme (would you expect anything else?!), so there is pink from wall to wall! I've told the mommies of all of Paisley's 'princess' friends that they may all wear their princess gear. I'm hoping that everyone will have as much fun at the party as I have had planning it!

Here's a sneak peak of Miss Paisley's princess tutu!

In My Daughter's Eyes...

In my daughter's eyes
I can see the future
A reflection of who I am
And what will be
And though she'll grow
And someday leave
Maybe raise a family
When I'm gone I hope you see
How happy she made me
For I'll be there
In my daughter's eyes
