Happy 1st Birthday Isabelle!

Big day today - Isabelle turned one year old!  We had a party with our families in Germantown.  Isabelle loved opening her presents and eating her birthday cupcake, which was almost as big as she was!!  We also took her one-year-old pictures before hand - here are the rest.

You're Baby's First Word Will be DADA

The holidays are officially over and we have settled back into our usually routine.  Isabelle loves to babble lately.  Her favorite (only only) words are usually some version "da da" or "daddy" - I guess there must be some truth to this book!  Isabelle is not very interested in walking yet (crawling is much fastest - I guess?), but she loves to explore.  She has also taken a big interest in the dogs.  This morning she decided that feeding Cheerios to Hannah was way more fun than eating them herself!  

We are looking forward to storytime to start up again in a few weeks and Isabelle's 1st birthday at the end of the month!

And here is Isabelle's most recent monthly monkey picture:

Happy New Year 2016!

Happy New Year from the Smith family!  We had a pretty quiet evening this year.  Isabelle had lots of fun wearing her new sparkly skirt and spent most of the night trying to pick the stars off.  She only made up until about 8:30 - maybe next year.  We are glad to be much more settled then we were this time last year and 2015 brought us a lot of big changes - new baby, new house, and new job to name a few.  Even though life can be a bit crazy some days, we are having so much fun being new parents and watching Isabelle grow a little more every day!  Can't wait to see what 2016 has in store for us!
