Harper's 1st Birthday

Harper Madden, I cannot believe you are already ONE!  You definitely complete our family and you are such a joy!  Our social baby for sure, she lights up the room with her smile, red hair, and laughs. 
I still mourn that you are the last baby in this family when I really sit down and think about it.  Physically, I know my body can’t handle another pregnancy, but you and you sisters are so amazing, that I think about another often.  Then there are days, when you are crawling around crazy, getting into everything, and your older sisters aren't listening and I think, “yep. I’m good with three!” Your sisters absolutely adore you and you adore them.  You already stand up for yourself when they take things from you.  That red hair stands true to that feisty personality you have! 
You’re sleeping better at night, but still wake up once.  You take 2 naps during the day, although only one of them I would consider a good nap.  When you are awake – you are 100% full force.  Crawling, climbing, throwing, laughing, pulling…anything and everything you can get your hands on.
You love food – any food at that really.  Yogurt is your favorite, but there isn't much you don’t like.  If someone is eating, you think you should be eating too.  I’ve pretty much started giving you anything and everything – peanut butter, jelly, olives, pickles, chicken, rice…anything!

 Your birthday party was so fun to plan and everyone had a great time.  You loved swinging, playing with your gifts, eating, and diving into your cupcake.

On your actual birthday, our family went to a local diner and had dinner & ice cream to celebrate. 
 You are so loved!!

The ½ bathroom is officially DONE! This is a tiny space, but it took the longest to complete.  We got used to using our other bathrooms and since it’s away from everything else, we left it alone for a while.  
 I’m so happy with how it turned out though – I’m in love with it!!

Vanity Light - Shades of Light
Pedestal Sink - Home Depot

Easter Weekend {Re-Cap}

 Our weekend consisted of matching outfits and eggs…pretty much sums it up.
Friday:  The girls had their Spring parties at school.  Their classes had egg hunts and then good food to follow!

Saturday: Hadleigh, Hayden, and I dyed some eggs and then dressed them all up.  We took advantage of Harper taking a nap and daddy going outside to cut the grass.  They wanted to dye most all of the eggs pink as you can see.


I dressed the girls in their matching Lolly Wolly Doodle dresses, so I had to get some pictures.  I’ve told Hadleigh that every time the three of them are dressed alike, that I need to take a picture.  So, she gets it.

Sunday:  The girls woke up and came downstairs to see what the Easter Bunny had brought them.
 They were pretty excited and immediately wanted to eat candy.  They had a few pieces and then we were off to get them all dressed in their matching Easter dresses (from Zulily.)  We met Daniel’s family for breakfast.  We were in and out of the restaurant in an hour (benefits of not going to church on Sunday).  
 After breakfast we came back home to start our Easter Egg Hunt.  The guys did a good job hiding all the eggs and the girls did awesome finding them!



  More candy was consumed while Daniel and his dad worked on our ½ bathroom (which is DONE by the way – update coming this week!)

We missed spending Easter with my family as they were in South Carolina, but we got to chat with them through FaceTime!

How was your Easter weekend?
