this ONE

Here we are. I can't believe it has been a year since the birth of my sweet baby.

Mae is such a joy to us. She since day one we have called her, This One, Baby, Miss Mae, MaeMae, Sister, Sissy, Sister Bear, and just Bear (she growls a lot. I mean, really, growls.)
Poor girl, I think that she has finally learned to respond to all of the above.

Here are Bear's favorite things:
Eating. Anything. Especially it is found on the floor and has been there for at least 6hrs.
Carrying around Blondie's panties.
Baths. She takes up the whole tub. Splashing, standing, slipping, eating soap.
The computer mouse. I find it in the strangest places.
Playing with Blondie when it is allowed.
Her binky.
Snuggling up to Mom or Dad before bed.
Pretending anything is a phone. Yes, even the panties.

Her actual birthday isn't until the 19th, but I wanted to get this up.

Happy First MaeMae!

Wow! Happy Birthday Mae! Why do everyone else's kids seem to grow up so much quicker? It seems like just yesterday that you were sporting your bikini bod at Jackson and Grace's birthday party just days after Mae was born, and I was about ready to bust at the seams! I can't believe my little baby is going to be 1 soon.... so not ready! You have a little sweetie there! It is fun to check in and see how you guys are doing. Hope al is well. Happy Birthday, Mae!

Your little video almost brought a tear to my eye!!! Of course I'm just emotional like that. Greta is so cute, Hayley! - you all are truly blessed.

She just can't be one years old! She just can't!!!! She is supposed to still be a little itty bitty newborn. Since she has to grow up and all, at least she stayed the same sweet adorable little Mae! Happy Birthday Silly Girl! We miss you!
*Hey, will you make all my videos for me since I have no desire to learn how to do it? :) I'm kidding, yet totally serious!
