Procastination-HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

One year down, 17 more to go and I am free!

JOKES! My baby turned 1 on June 20th and it was quite the little party for her!

Charly has always been such a smiley baby full of giggles shared mostly with dad. This past year has been the most adjusting I have ever done. I swear, everytime I get used to one stage of development...she is moving onto the next leaving me in the dust!
This last month Charly picked up the fine art of WALKING! Yahoo, she is on her own now:D It was a glorious day when she decided to sleep through the night! For those of you who had babies that slept through the night from the get-go...I hate you:D
Charly is a particular little thing, just like daddy. She hates pacifiers, bottles, formula, and most of all...not having your FULL attention. She still loves to pack around a tooth brush, it is her most saught after item (I should have bought tooth brushes instead for her birthday).
And lastly, this little love bug that has come into our lives has changed them forever. I never knew we could have such an intense love for her. You hear about it, but to experience it is something else! To all of my dear friends expecting, hold on for the ride of your life. It is CRAZY, but so worth it!

Charlize was born at 2:34 on Friday in Jackson Hole WYO. She weighed 6 lbs. 12 oz and was 19 1/2 inches. She was a pretty easy delivery for a first timer and being induced. I kiss her everyday for that:D
As much as I didn't want to put this one in....I just HAD TO. LOOK AT ME! I am HUGE and FRUMPY! I don't wear pregnancy very well:DI don't have many full body shots of myself these days as we try to avoid them, but this is me in and the bug in May at BEAR WORLD!
She ate so much and so fast that she horked down a little confetti piece and puked EVERYTHING up, I mean everything....yak!
The Big ONE!
Grammy Bennett spoils her...too much!
My dearest friend....Jes. Thanks for coming up. You made her day!
LOOK OUT! What a serious face!
Stu and Mili, she is halfway done being pregnant and she looks AMAZING...imagine my disgust and jelously!

We were playing and made her a hunchback...she didn't care!
Sis and the gremlin!
COOKIE TIME! She loves her treatsies!

She gets after food like a true BENNETT!
If she is going to have Ben as a dad, then she is going to have to be tough as nails!
What a STINK! Ew I just love her!
Like I said previously, I am so happy I decided to have children! It has been the best thing I could have ever done. I love staying home with her and playing all day. She just cracks me up and has me forever wrapped around those little fingers!
Happy Birthday to our sweet little Charlize, we love you more than anything in this world!

It's so much fun to see them waddle around on those little legs! You look amazing in your bear world picture! Way to go on loosing the weight! I'm so jealous! :) Hope to see you guys soon!

What a cutie Laycee! Time flies doesn't it, you have a one year old! And way to go Charlie for walking. We really need to get together, and the sooner the better. The bigger I get with this little boy, the more I am likely to just sit in front of the air conditioner and not leave my house. Anyway, congrats on making it through the first year. You look beautiful by the way in that picture of you three with the cake.
Love- D

Holy smokes girl! I can't believe your baby is one! It seems like just yesterday I was holding her at Jes' wedding! Charlie is such a doll and looks like she is full of personality! I need to see her again...I think our little girls could be really great friends! Anyway, she is such a doll! You are an adorable family and it looks like you have loads of fun together. P.S.
