What a crew! Can you find all the Ward cousins in this photo?
Hannah, Caroline, and Will prove this Halloween is a little 'buggy'!
Love the expressions here on the Nuspl faces! Too fun!

Pumpkin playin in the play pen!

I love this pic - our girl playing with her dolls! What a sweetheart she is.
Peeking at Mommy over the edge.
If I drop my toys over the edge, you'll pick them up, right Mommy?

Of course! That's what Mommies do!

It's time for another bath...

Wow, Mom...I even have spaghetti way up here..
But it sure tastes good!
Mom, really? More pictures? I'm naked!
Um, yeah...a bath is indeed necessary.
I have no idea how I got spaghetti way down there! Anyone out there wanna volunteer to bathe this kid??

Toying around!

Sometimes the best toys...
Are the things that aren't really toys.
Has anyone seen my baby??

Tupperware!

It's amazing how much fun you can have rooting through the cupboards!

Mommy's sunglasses

Okay- A little more fun. She thinks it's hilarious that she can wear Mommy's sunglasses. What a goof!

Dance, baby!

I just had to video my girl this week. She's so full of energy and happy. Here she is playing with her Dora car from Emma and enjoying hiding things inside, and dancing to the tunes!

Cutest Little Ladybug!

Ahh, the torture we put the little ones through just to get that perfect shot!
4 pumpkins in this picture!
Mommy, I just ate a leaf and I'm not so sure about it...
Fast forward 13 years and a insert a telephone! We have one chatty girl on our hands. She's just jabbering away, giving me a head tilt, and exploring her leaf.
Sheer joy! She found her 'plug' and thinks life is pretty sweet. Yes- it is!

Portrait Session

I decided to get a little more mileage out of her birthday outfit, so Caroline & Mommy headed to the portrait studio. I figured we should get some official one year pics. Here's a link to the set. There's a few keepers in the bunch. Enjoy!

Announcing...

Someone in the Smith house is going to be a big sister around April 1st! Wow! We are surprised and excited!..and this is the reaction from Grandpa when he hears the news. I think he's rather surprised also!

It's a 1st Birthday Party!

...Complete with sugar overload. Check out that sippee cup! Yum!
Yes, sometimes the paper is more exciting than the presents.
Just taking in the awe of the day!
Giggling with glee at her new doll baby.
Kisses for my lamb.
Bring that cupcake right on over, Mom. I know exactly what to do with that.
Yep..you sure do!
All decked out in my birthday duds!
Even more than the presents and cake, I think Caroline enjoyed being among her family. She loves her cousins, aunts, uncles, & grandparents so much!

It was a great day, indeed!

Cock your head!

It's another new game! We like to tilt our head with or without your participation. And we also look up with our flirty eyes at the same time. How much fun is this kid?

Birthday Fun with Mom & Dad!

It was a delightful way to spend the day with our girl. I can't seem to get the pictures in the correct order, but you get the idea it was a fun day!
Caroline enjoyed pumpkin fun with us, and we even found a couple of pumpkins to take home.

We went to Lucky's Grille for dinner, and Caroline (and Mommy) enjoyed her first birthday treat.
Caroline also enjoyed her first cupcake! She really liked it when Mommy & Daddy sang to her.
I'm ONE today!
More fun at the pumpkin patch. We saw a donkey, sheep, rabbit & ducks!
Caroline enjoyed opening her gifts from Mommy & Daddy.
We still can't believe our little girl is growing up so fast! It was a beautiful day to remember. We've had a blast!
