Big Buck Down!

My daddy killed a deer....and then I claimed it as my own!
I am so proud of Jared....he has been hunting every single time he gets a chance too and gets up way earlier than I could probably ever motivate myself to. He killed a nice buck Monday morning with his bow. Jared loves bow hunting and I am glad he has something he enjoys doing so much. Jared had Gary come down and take pictures for him (I was still in the shower at 6:40am when this was going on) and I think they turned out good. I am so happy for him!
We took Presley out to see it before I took her down to Memaw's and headed to work. She seemed a little sketical of it but didn't seem to mind too much. I know when she's bigger she will love deer hunting just because her daddy does!

All I can say here is Daddy's girl!

Presley loves bathtime! We work really hard to keep a routine each night and it starts off with a bath. She loves playing in the water and likes to blow bubbles.
She's such a little ham in the tub!

My blue eyed baby girl!
She's also learned that when I ask "Presley do you want to get out of the bath?" she says "No!"

Bridge Pics

I still have so much to learn....but here are a few more pics from the other weekend at Loy Lake Park. I am so glad Jared went along to help me out. He did lots of chasing of our active little girl! She had run ahead of us and Jared had just scooped her up in this picture. Her smile is so playful here. I love this picture of them....they are the center of my world and I am so blessed to have them both.
Presley was not shy at all and was all over the place! This little bridge was neat but turned out even better in the pictures. I think Presley looks tiny in this picture!
We are so lucky to have such a happy little girl. We say it all the time but we truly are thankful to have such a joyful little one. She smiles and laughs constantly. She adds so much to our life!
I am so proud of my little blue eyed sweetheart!
One more post....hopefully tomorrow and I'll finally have all of the pictures posted!

Fall Pictures

I love my new camera!!!
I am still not anywhere close to being an expert but I am working on getting there. Well, maybe not an expert but I do want to capture some great pictures of my little cupcake. I love taking pictures! I'm not interested in photography as a profession or anything but I do plan on taking lots of pictures of Presley as she grows up. She changes so much every single day...I don't want to forget any of it! I am not a fan of posed pictures...which is a good thing when you are working with a one year old! I think letting Presley play when I'm shooting her shows so much more personality. And it's way less work on us! Jared and I spent a couple of hours last Saturday just getting out and taking pictures at a couple of spots. These pics are from an old truck that I drive past on the way to work every day. I've wanted to take her picture there for a long time and we finally got around to it. The owner was super sweet and told us to take as many as we wanted!
I love the color of the truck, the pink bow in her hair, those big blue eyes....I know I'm partial, but I think these pictures turned out great. We took a lot more pictures but I still need to finish editing them. My process is this: take a zillion pictures and then go through and delete all the ones you don't like. Jared always makes fun of me because I snap so many, but he sure loves it when I get one he likes.
Like this picture....he says this one is his favorite and I think we are going to have a big one made so we can hang it up at home. I've always wanted to get a canvas made out of a print. And now I finally have a camera that is high enough resolution that we could....first we need to look through the remaining 500 pictures (yes I'm being serious) and decide on which one! I will post the rest of our "Fall Photo Shoot" soon!

13 Months

Presley Lynn.....I can't believe it but you are 13 months old! You are growing up so fast. You are the center of our world and we love you so much. Our sweet friend Hudson (currently my pic for your future husband) and his mommy Kate got you these cool stickers and shirts to put them on for your birthday. Now we can keep taking month pictures so we can see how much you grow! You are learning to make all of your toys work and you insisted on holding your glow worm for these pictures. You turn it on no less than a 100 times a day!
You weigh 22 lbs and are getting so tall. You wear 18 month shirts and 12 month pants (in jeans you can wear 6 months). You still wear a size 3 diaper and a size 4 in shoes. You are obsessed with shoes and want to put them on as soon as you wake up! I can't believe you didn't have shoes on for these pictures.
You are still a great eater and have really taken an interest in feeding yourself. You still sleep good and you are a busy lady when you are awake. You move constantly and you mock everything! You say lots of words like "momma, dada, dog, juice, moo, nana (banana), outside, no no, get it, who dat, ball". You are so happy most of the time and when you are upset it's always short lived. Your favortie person is Pops. When he is around no one else exist!
You are so much fun and Daddy and I laugh at you constantly. You are our little sunshine and we love you so much! We are so blessed to have you for our daughter. You are perfect for us! We love you!
