As promised (ahem Hannah) here is the ‘meet Penelope’ post… She just turned one this weekend, and I’ll be putting up a recap of her birthday party tomorrow, so here is the story of her first year in pictures. We are so blessed to have this lovely little girl in our lives xoxo
Here I am with P’s Daddy in Barkhamsted right before she was born!
So – true story – Penelope was born knowing how to pose. Here she is at less than a week old!
…I may be responsible for her love of prints and mixing them however (at least at this stage in her life!)
…And yet more Lilly at our family vacation in Lake George!
…and momma and baby Lilly in Saratoga (yes – there’s a trend here!)
…here she is the same day having fun with her handsome Daddy (playing ‘kick Dad in the face’ – hilarious at any age)
About six months old and just as fabulous as can be
OMG BABY SELFIE
In August we had a very, very bad scare with a nasty UTI which sent us to the hospital for almost a week. Thank God, CT Children’s Medical Center cured our little angel – and this recovery smile was one of the sweetest things I’ve ever seen.
Here we are ‘reading’ about Elmo in a fetching autumnal outfit
Enjoying a harvest dinner at one of our favorite places, Lost Acres Vineyard
Baby meets Santa and is suitably awestruck
Vacation at Sanibel Island with Mommy and Daddy at Christmas!
A Big Girl – with her own toothbrush – and finally enough hair for a baby mohawk!
And – last but not least – rocking an “Anarchy in the pre-K” t shirt from the one and only Kerri of Real Hartford
So that’s my sweet little Pea! We’re going to have such a fun year now that she is one 🙂
