Fall Family Photos

I've always liked getting family pictures done in the past, and now that Finley is here, I'll be sure to do them every year. This year, we had Ashley from Saturday Morning Macarons take our photos and she was AWESOME. If you're in the West Michigan area and would like to get some photos, you should definitely reach out to Ashley. We didn't bring Admiral with us this year, because we weren't sure if we'd be able to wrangle an (almost) one-year-old and a dog. There are so many that I love. I'm going to have such a hard time deciding which ones to print and hang!

Finley was so serious when we first started, so we all did a serious face :)

Finley: One Year

I still can't believe this girl is one whole year old already. It's true, time goes by way too fast. She started walking three days before her first birthday and now we rarely ever see her crawl. She's still a great sleeper and takes two naps. Now drinks whole milk and eats all of the things. Girl LOVES to eat. We gave her shrimp for the first time the other night and she ate seven of them (along with the rest of her dinner). I can't wait to see how much she grows and changes over the next year, but I'd really like it if time would slow down!

Our Little Pumpkin is One!!

We celebrated Finley's first birthday last weekend (on her actual birthday) and it was so wonderful! Our theme was "Our Little Pumpkin is Turning One" and I went all out with all things fall for her party. I figured I better do all the things I want until she starts having an opinion. We had the party at our house (only three weeks after we moved in - we are nuts) and the weather cooperated so people could be inside or outside. 

We had veggies & dip, a chili bar, cornbread muffins, and hot dogs and mac n cheese for the kiddos. My sister-in-law did some fall flavored mini cupcakes (pumpkin, apple, and s'mores), and I ordered Finley's smash cake from The Cake Girl. Everything turned out great and Finley is definitely spoiled loved. Thanks to everyone who helped make the party a success and to everyone who came out to celebrate Finley's first birthday with us! And thanks to my sister for taking pics all day for us!
