12 months of davis

i had a heck of a time narrowing these pictures down to twelve.  each photo has a story and i am tempted to revisit them all for you, but if you read this blog then i've told them all before.  i am a blessed, blessed momma.  this child has filled my heart to overflowing.  going through these all, i am crying.  litterally.  tears of happiness.  but a little sappy and sentimental too. 

(on a side note, if you know anyone about to have a baby i totally recommend getting onesies like these.  what better way to keep track of the time this first crazy year?  i can't thank my friends tim and sarah enough for them.)

just a little reminder

from marley to you.

with a capitol MD.  following the trail....

caught red handed

apparently i need to keep the baby powder up higher.

no remorse here.  (none needed either)

brown noser

davis thinks this is hilarious.  she couldn't stop chuckling.

she left a snail trail throughout the house

well, at least the house smells powder fresh.  and maybe some of the floor creaks will disappear.

pick your own fun

we went berry picking today.  it was super fun.  and really not very hot, all things considering.  mainly we live in texas.  but there was a nice breeze.  a summer breeze, if you will.  marls loved running from plant to plant saying look how big THIS one is!  to every single berry, be it big or little.  i think we will go again.  ben wants to pick peaches, so we'll see.  right now we have five pounds of blackberries to eat. 

"oh boy!  look how big this one is!"

inspecting out bounty

very excited.  funnily enough, i don't think she had ever even had blackberries before today.  she loves them now though.

seriously adorable.

berry face

ok she looks like a televangelist here.  "praise jesus"

but mom, why can't i have your camera?

i have no idea what happened with the lighting here...but that would be almost all five pounds. 

 davis has learned to hug.  and she loves to do it.  if you are on the floor, watch out.  girl is coming to get you with a big old hug.  and some drooly kisses too.  i love it. 
 every time marley leaves to go somewhere and davis is not going, davis cries the cry of the broken hearted.  this usually only happens on wednesdays when marley goes to story hour.  she absolutely adores her big sister.

so davis is going to be one next week.  i can not believe how this year has flown by.  i mean i thought the first month was impossible, but after that.  that sweet baby smell.  that so soft baby skin.  the precious way she burrows into my neck to give hugs.  her awesome locomotion skills.  davis is amazing.  so different from her amazing big sister, but so wonderful.  ack.  i am all sappy and sentimental tonight.  love my girls.  motherhood is one of the best things to ever happen to me. 
apparently eating real food is exhausting.  i have never known a baby to fall asleep like this so often.  i promise she naps and sleeps at night.

perfect sweetness

she has slept like this since she was born.  she can roll over but has yet to ever do it while asleep.  sometimes she gets on her side.  and her feet are usually touching so her legs form a little heart
