belated birthday pictures…

ok – so here are just a few pictures of the birthday party for jasper lilith that we had on the 25th…it was a lot of fun – plenty of our family and friends to share the day with us!!   we had the party outside at river legacy – one of our favorite parks and other than being hot (and it was HOT), we had a great day…

jasper got some really great gifts – i will have to showcase them every once in a while…some of her new birthday clothes are definitely worthy of a little fashion show – so cute!!

what a sweet cake – in all ways 🙂  jasper lilith had her very own little heart-shaped chocolate and strawberry cake made by wendy…did i mention the chocolate frosting?  well, it was covered in ooey, gooey chocolate frosting – and in very little time, so was jasper!

note to self:  do not use chocolate candy in the pinata when it is 90-something degrees out!!  can everyone say “melty”?

another note to self:  bring more wet wipes! 

so she really CAN walk!!

it is official – no, really, this time it IS official – we have a walking baby!!  i mean, go to town, doesn’t want to crawl, walking upright on her two chubby little legs baby…within a matter of three days, jasper lilith went from walking a couple of steps at a time but still prefering to crawl everywhere to walking between pieces of furniture but, again, still crawling otherwise to (seemingly all of a sudden!) walking from one side of the room to the other side with nary a hand or piece of furniture to help her….we went from having a crawling baby on weds. to our now walking sunshine by friday…oh, wow!! so very very cool to watch her progression…and it completely changes the way she looks to – she looks older and more like a little girl when she is walking vs. the cute little crawling baby she was just last week…

and dont let me forget to tell you how ridiculously cute she is while she is toddling all over the place…crazy cute, i cant even begin to tell you! 

anyway, here is proof…of course, this video was taken about 4 or 5 days ago and she has gotten stunningly more proficient by now…

we love you!!

jasper lilith hyams turned all of one year old today!  she has rocked our world for the fastest year of our lives – it is almost unbelieveable that such a little miracle is ours…

here is a small “taste” of the birthday party pictures to come…

my little helper…sort of…

so jasper has gotten into the game of giving me things – she likes to pick something up (microscopic or otherwise) and give it to me…i say thank you and take it, of course…this game will continue without me there which simply means a lot of things end up on the floor around her 🙂  diaper wipes, kleenex, photos, whatever she happens to be giving me that i don’t take away as soon as i get up…

this time, it was the diaper wipes – i had them out to refill, went into her bedroom to get some more and came back to see jasper surrounded by wipes that she was busy tearing into little tiny minuscule pieces…i was actually more impressed that she managed to get into the diaper wipe container more than anything else 🙂

in duncan’s shoes…

heather and duncan came over last night and jasper lilith wanted nothing more than to wander around in duncan’s shoes…so she did…

naked baby a la carte…

we always let her run around nude for a bit before she takes her bath and yesterday – for the first time ever – she left, um, brown stains on the carpet…and when i say brown stains, i mean, she went number two, had a bowel movement, left me a surprise, went poo on the carpet – get the picture?  actually, i almost took a picture but really, who wants to see that?  i certainly didn’t 🙂

but anyway, today she kept everything to herself and we enjoyed our usual diaper-free time…phew…
