My Beachy Birthday!

Her first look at the Ocean! So sweet :)

Loving time with her daddy!

My favorite picture of the day!!

Not loving the cold air after the water!!

Just checkin' things out...

Where's the water??

There it is!!

I love her little happy face!!

It was so great to have my brother here the last few days and then today we hit the beach to take Charlotte in her first official dip in the sea! She couldn't not have loved it anymore! Or hated the undressing, rinsing off stage anymore! Haha!

Kev was the best husband ever! Let me sleep in until after 9am!! Say what!! We took a family nap later in the day and then headed off to the beach! Charlotte was a dream...which is SO rare!

What a great way to ring in #31!!

Thanks for all the birthday wishes! You guys are the best :)

Story Time at the Iacoboni Library!

Jetblue had $10 flights so my brother hopped down for a two day visit! We had the most fun ever! Picnic in Laguna beach, Storytime at the Iacoboni Library and a bike ride to the park, and we got lost, in Lakewood! haha! Never thought that would happen!!

I love having my brother so close, he's just the best Uncle ever!

Mother's Day!

All ready to go!!

Mommy and Daughter!! Love :)

Her Favorite thing in the world...


She's been watching her Daddy to much!!

They were spinning and Charlotte was laughing SO much!

She was asleep before we started biking home!

Halfway home...

Poor sleepy girl!

Such a good hub! Carrying the diaper bag!

Last year's Mother's Day was amazing :) I had a one month old daughter who I finally got to hold and love! But this year, was even more rewarding! Waking up to her sweet smile, hearing her say mama, see her clap her hands and give kisses...warms my heart more than words can say!

She is a dream come true...but daaaaang was she moody today! haha! We slept in, rode our bikes up to the park had a great time! She fell asleep in her bike chair and when we hit a bump she had a rude awakening!! Poor lil C!! Kev really went above and beyond by making me feel loved and taken care of :)

I Love Mother's Day!!!!

Into Everything!!!

This looks unsafe...


Off! On the tips of her sweet toes!

Charlotte Rose is adorable..loveable...but into EVERYTHING!! haha! She's still not walking (no pressure!) but she is just a hot mess with her hands in anything and everything. And she always has that mischievous look on her cute sweet little face :)

Oh, Charlotte I love you so....but can I have a break :)

My New Bike!!

My birthday present came a little early and I just couldn't wait to ride it!! We went for a quick ride to the park and Lil C fell right asleep on the ride over! But we fed some baby ducks and had a blast!

Thanks Kev for my birthday present! I love it SO much!

The Aquarium!!

The happy family!

Happy Birthday Charlotte!

Having fun with Uncle Daniel!

LOVING the birds!

Whatever Kevin and Daniel are looking at is way boring compared to what Charlotte is looking at!!
SO happy!

Not walking yet...but close!

Haha! Scary :)

Watch your fingers Charlotte!

Today was Charlotte's actual birthday, party behind us...we decided to go to the aquarium! She could not have loved it more!! What a great day! Daniel was still in town so he came along to help celebrate the day!

Charlotte went crazy for the birds at the aquarium! Daniel had never heard her laugh so hard! She was tickled with them to no end! She really loved splashing her hands in the touch pools too! She looked like she had a ball! And we all had a ball watching her!!

Happy Birthday Sweet Baby!

My Baby Girl is One!!

The cake I made for Charlotte :)

and cupcakes!

Her smash cupcake!

The beautiful centerpieces Kevin's Friend, Maria made. They were so gorgeous!

The birthday girl!

She's saying "Dis, Dis!"

Inevitable! She always wants to eat them!

She pooped out pretty quickly! She wasn't used to all the sun!

Up and ready for cake!!

Me and my girl :)

She's ready to eat it up!

Yum!!! Good girl!

Charlotte Rose is one year's so true when they said time flies! I feel like it was just a minute ago that I was holding her in my arms for the first time. I see newborns and I think, Charlotte was never that small!

This last year has made me into a new person, I've never thought that I could love someone so much. To hear her say mama the first time, melted my heart...her first smile brought tears to my eyes...her first hug, warmed my heart...her sweet kisses, make me laugh...her giggles are a sound I hope I never forget!

I thought that I would be so sad to see her turn into a little toddler, but all I can think about is where I want to take her, the things I want to show her, and the experiences we'll share!

Charlotte, I look forward to every minute, every day, every month, every year of your life! I love you with my whole heart!
