We went to the San Diego fair tonight. Lots of food, fun, people, and good times. Despite not getting enough sleep, June loved every minute of it. Evan impressed us with his game skills. Once a carnie, always a carnie. He won a huge stuffed animal that June is already crazy about.
We recently “celebrated” our 3-year anniversary. It was squeezed in between birthdays, WREBS, moving, and school. We celebrated by trying out Patina, which was delicious.
I loved our wedding day. We got married on my parents’ anniversary and I was able to wear my mom’s dress. It was a dream come true having so many friends and family all together. I was so bummed I couldn’t close out the party particularly when so many friends came from so far. I am so grateful to be married to Michael and that we have June in our family now. I am so lucky.
*I feel a little guilty saying that the day June was born wasn’t the best day of my life, but I’d be lying if I said childbirth was better than a wedding and a party. Sorry June!

June enjoyed her birthday cake. Looking at this pictures I realize my mistake in not cleaning up the green beans off of her before doing the cake, but at least she had green beans first.
I can’t believe our little girl is a year old. It has been a really fun year getting to know her. She is not big on cuddling, but she makes up for it with smiles and laughter. She has an astute/naughty sense of humor for a little baby. She laughs when getting scared rather than crying. She is mostly happy and easy to be around. She is a little bit of a flirt and a bit dramatic. She sleeps really well now and goes down for bed and naps easily (even though her first 6 months were brutal.) She likes most foods and even when she does not like some thing, she will usually still open her mouth for more. She says mama, dada, what, and Bella. She has always been more physical than interested in words, but she is starting to take more interest lately. She makes friends everywhere we go . . . I’m a little shy with strangers, but she often puts me in situations where I have to talk to strangers and they are always talking to me. She has been standing a lot more and taking a few steps, but not walking. She makes me laugh every day. She is really social and when babies are crying she gently puts her hands on them and looks at them. She loves kids, Disneyland, swings, the beach, bouncy balls, and Bella (she isn’t as excited about other dogs). She is stingy with her kisses, so when she gives you one she really means it. She usually gives them to me randomly after I’ve made her laugh. We are just crazy about her.
Last weekend Janie, Leah, Madelyn and Kendall came into town. Leah came so she could be Michael's patient for WREBs, but unfortunately Michael did not end up using her. We were happy to see them and have them visit. Madelyn loves June and spoils her with lots of attention. June eats it up. Madelyn had time with her grandma to go to Disneyland and Leah was allowed to come for a day only if she brought June. When we were at Disneyland Madelyn did not leave our side. It was so sweet.
Also, we found out this week that Michael passed his WREBs. We are so proud of him and so glad that it's done.

Michael and I got to go to a dinner prepared by Marcel to promote his show Quantum Kitchen. The food was amazing and we had a great time. We enjoyed talking to a couple who won a trip and flew out from Nashville. It was their first time out West and they were so sweet. It was kind of intimidating being asked by Marcel what our favorite dish was or what elements of the show we liked from the SyFy executive. Michael told me after that I blew it, but it was still a super fun night.

We have been making a few trips to Disneyland and June has been loving it. We went the last few times with Whitney and her boys. It has been lots of fun. June's favorite ride is definitely It's a Small World, but she enjoys all the rides we've been on. She doesn't cry or get scared. She always crashes on the way home.
Haley came up to LA to visit us since she is back from NYC for a little while. June missed her so much that she cuddled with her for a little while . . . it also helped that a Baby Einstein dvd was playing. It was so sweet. When Haley went to leave June didn't want to let go of her.
