Happy Halloween!

So I know this makes us way big dorks, but I don't care because it's way awesome!  

That's our little golden snitch and I think she makes a pretty darn cute one!  Happy Halloween!

Cadance and Her Found Love of Carrying Things Around

She does this with anything that has a handle: pot lids, gift bags, "my carry" books, my purse, the utensil holder from the dishwasher, etc.  My favorite part is the look on her face.  It's like she has important stuff going on and doesn't have time to be interrupted by Mom.

Interview Season

Steve has just started his interview season.  He's had two interviews with 10 more to go.  I made a list of his schedule so you guys can know what he's up to.

Birthday Pictures

 So, as luck would have it my camera cord fit my mom's camera so now I have some pictures to share from the party, etc. 

Here she is going on walks before the party with her Grandma

and her grandpa

 Cadance really didn't want anything to do with the pinata, but she loved what came out if it


After the pinata we gave Cadance some cake.  I really thought she would go at it with all she had, but she didn't.  She ate it very lady like, one bite at a time.  I don't think she understood what the big deal was.  She acted like having all you can eat cake is normal.  But, it was fun to watch

After Cadance had her fill of cake and we cleaned her off and changed her into a new outfit we opened some gifts.  Cadance had a lot of fun with this.  Not quite as much as all the other kids at the party, but that's okay.

It was a way fun party!  Thanks to everyone who came to help us celebrate. 

On Cadance birthday Steve and I gave her one last gift.  A push bike.  It's really cute because her feet barely touch the ground so she can't really play with it yet, but she seems to like it anyways.

First Birthday

So I'm sure I was supposed to write some fabulous post about Cadance's first birthday.  Post a lot of pictures and give great detail for all of our wonderful family who weren't able to celebrate with us.  But, mostly I haven't felt motivated, or I don't want to relive it and then have to admit that it actually happened.  Also, my mom and I switched cameras so I don't have the video of Cadance eating her birthday cake. 

What I can tell you is that Cadance is now a year old.  She loves all the gifts she received.  According to her doctor she needs more milk because she's not gaining enough weight.  I weaned her in record time (2 days).  She is starting to have an opinion about all sorts of things in life and since she can't talk it mostly come out is disgruntled grunts and flaying herself out of our arms.  She has five teeth, and with the way she's been teething I'm pretty sure there are like 5 more ready to come in.  Getting 5 shots makes her shake.  She loves to be outside and sits next to the door just in case I decide to open it.  Also she completely understands all signs of when we're leaving, mostly her shoes, which I'm particularly proud of.  She likes to play hide and go seek.  She just learned how to turn off the light.  She hates getting her temperature taken.  Food makes her all sorts of jealous.  Mostly she is this completely fantastic person that I'm so happy to know!
