Bailey's first birthday!

I can't believe my sweet baby girl is already 1! The past year has come and gone way to fast!! We love little miss Bailey so much! It's been so fun having her as a part of our family! She is full of sass, attitude and is a complete drama queen, but thats what makes her the fun girl she is!  I can't imagine life without her! When she woke up Skyler, Nate and I walked in and sang her happy birthday! She wasn't exactly thrilled, she really just wanted us to get her out of her crib ha ha! Then I made a pancake breakfast and she got her very own special #1 pancake! She loved it to say the least! She wolfed it down in minutes! She is the best eater around and its amazing she is so tiny because she eats everything in sight and then some! Nate said he wanted a number one pancake too to help bailey celebrate being one! So it was number one pancakes all around for everyone! Nate finished breakfast off with birthday kisses for Bailey!

That night we had a little family party for Bailey. I did a cupcake theme party saying "our little cupcake is turning one!" Alyssa made the invitations and they turned out so cute!

It was fun to have everyone over! I made Bailey a giant cupcake cake and had everybody put on a topping on it so her cake was a little more meaningful with everyones contribution to the cake! She LOVED it! I was shocked that she wasn't sick in the morning because she ate a ton! After she ate hers everyone had the chance to decorate their own cupcake and ice cream. It was a fun night and thanks to everyone who came!

 I didn't get many good pictures of her party on my phone, but my sister in law took a lot on her camera and I will add them to the post when I get them. For now here are the ones from my phone...

First few days of June

June 1st: I decided to sign Nate up for a new preschool next year. He is so excited! Today we went and picked up his summer work packet that they give each student to work on throughout the summer! He couldn't wait to get started! As soon as we got home he wanted to start on it! Nate loves to learn and loves being able to accomplish new things! I love that I don't have to force him to do it! If I ever forget to have him work on it he says remember I need to do my school work mom!

After he finished working on a few pages his friends Andrew and Jo Jo came over to play in the kiddie pool. Nothing says summer like swimming and watermelon!

Then that evening we went and swam in grandmas pool and had a sleepover since dad was out of town! When we showed up all us girls were wearing pink :)

June 2nd: We went and tried out the new costa vida in town for dinner yummy! Even Bailey was chowing down!

June 3rd: When we were over at Skyler's moms house Nate was playing outside and came running in and was screaming saying he got stung by a bee! It was actually a wasp and he was stung 3 times! It was all puffed up! Luckily he is not allergic to them and Tammy had some lotion for it that really helped a lot!

Then Bailey got her first haircut! No more mullet! Yay!

June 4th: Softball night! We went and watched Skyler play in there first game of the season and of course they won! And of course Skyler hit 2 home runs...woot woot!!

Lake day

May 31st: Our first day out to lake this year! It was so fun to be out on the boat! It was Bailey's first time ever! She was not a fan of the life jacket!

That night the kids went out and played in the backyard. They were acting so cute! Love my kids blue eyes!

Bailey's one year old pictures

May 30th: My awesome sister in law took Bailey's one year pictures today. I wanted to take some before her actual birthday so we could have some printed at the party and for people to have to take home. I love how they turned out! Alyssa did a great job on them!!

Spray painted bench

My mother-in-law gave me her old outdoor bench that she didn't want anymore and I decide to spray paint blue and put it in our front yard. I primed it first and then spray painted it. I love how it turned out! It looks so cute!
