Hallie is ONE!

Our sweet little girl turned ONE year old today!  My how time flies!  We packed in as much fun as we could to celebrate.

We started the morning with her first birthday announcement on our local news station.  Sure, they pronounced her name wrong, but it was still special to us :)

Then Grandma Scearcy called to sing happy birthday!
When Daddy came home from work, he gave his special girl some yellow tulips.

Then we gave her a little adirondak chair, which she climbed on and off of for quite a while ;)


After that we had pink funfetti cake that Mommy made.  Hal loved it and really liked feeding the cake to herself and Daddy!

Here's a video of us singing "Happy Birthday"

We were going to go to the zoo, but decided to head down to the old market instead.  The weather was absolutely beautiful so we walked around and then had a delicious dinner at the Jackson Street Tavern.

After dinner we stopped by Grandma and Grandpa Jensen's house to see them and play with our cousins.

Hallie was fast asleep within five minutes of leaving Gma and Gpa's house :)  She may not remember today, but me and Daddy sure will!

Sorry it's been awhile :)  Here's a photo recap of our week...

Hallie loves to stand at the window in the dining room and watch Finn when he's outside

Grandma and Kate came out on Monday and those two girls CANNOT get enough of Grandma!  When she's around nobody else matters

Just enjoying the sunpatch in the empty dining room 

Walking around with blocks in her mouth is the latest craze

Hal and Daddy love to walk around the house and point out all the different people in the picture frames

After bath smooches with Mommy

Hal gained access to the laundry room (the door is usually closed) and was excited to discover my Chuck's.  She has a bit of a shoe obsession already...uh oh

We try to "facetime" Daddy on our iPhones every day, so every time I take out my phone Hallie starts saying "Dadda."  That is what she is saying in this picture :)

Hallie is officially a "walker."  No more crawling for our little nugget.  I love the look of determination on her face in this picture.  I've seen that same look on her dad's face several times :)


Turning ONE in less than two weeks!  Such a beauty

Hallie's First Steps...Caught on Video!

Hallie has been taking tentative steps for a month or so, but I have always been "hovering" and unable to catch it on video until now.  Also, this video captures her adorable little giggle :)

Walking with Daddy

The weather has been nice here the last few days, so Cory took Hallie outside to practice her walking on the driveway.  He's such a loving, helpful Daddy.  Here are some pictures of their adventure together.
