Happy Birthday Layla!!

I cannot believe our little girl is ONE! It's so crazy to me that one whole year has gone by in what seems like an instant. Time needs to seriously SLOW down!! Here's a breakdown of what Layla has been up to recently:

She takes about 7-8 steps... still not full on walking, but she's working on it
She LOVES to mimmick sounds me, Chris and Josiah make. It's pretty awesome
She eats ALL THE TIME! And she lets you know when she's not done eating by the high pitch shriek that comes out of her mouth until the food is on her plate!
She is a  really great napper/sleeper. She naps about 4 hours a day and then sleeps 13 hours... now only if Josiah slept that great, Chris and I would be well rested too
She poses for the camera. She knows she's gorgeous and lets me know it by posing!
Her eyes are to die for! Ten times a day strangers stop me to tell me how beautiful she is and that her eyes are the bluest and most beautiful eyes they've ever seen... no joke
Wherever her big brother is, that's where she wants to be. She adores him, and for the most part, he adores her.
She is a mama's girl. About a month ago she started crying when I left her. Unless she is familiar with the person, she will cry the whole time I'm gone... which is why I no longer can work out at the gym. I get called out every time because she's upset. As soon as I pick her up, she's fine. A little annoying,  but mostly special
She has exactly 4 1/2 teeth. One on top, 3 on bottom. However, she thinks she has a mouth full by the kinds of food she chomps on
She absolutely hates the car. She screams and cries no matter how short of a distance we go. It's not fun whatsoever
She LOVES music! It's awesome! Whenever she hears a beat, not matter what kind, she's dancing to it

Here are some pics that we took of her at her family birthday party we had :)

Busy busy summer

How we spent our summer:

 Met cousin Helen at a weekend getaway to Lost Pines Resort in Bastrop. It has the most amazing lazy river that connected to an awesome pool with a sand volleyball court. We also rode bikes, ate really yummy food and sipped on some super girly drinks!
 Kissed some random dog... j/k. that's Livey, Uncle Carter and Aunt Elyse's dog that I (Josiah) talk about every single day. No exaggeration.
 Had good quality nap time with daddy.
 Pet some donkeys
 Loved on Livey some more
 Chased squirrels
 Went to San Fran to see Aunt Mindy with my mommy, Bebe and Aunt Judi... it was an awesome girls trip that will hopefully become a yearly thing
 Played in the kiddie pool inside as to avoid West Nile virus
 Swam outside in my super cute bathing suit and enjoyed chewing on keys
 Hugged each other a lot
 Ate people food and started to grow my hair out
 Wrapped myself in a blanket, one of my favorite things to do!
 Documented every restaurant we went to in San Fran (this says Naked Sushi on the chopsticks)
 Read books
Worked on my jump shot!

That was our summer in a nut shell! I will blog again next week after Layla turns ONE!!! I can't believe it!
