A day in the life of Flora Mae

We just hung out today... 
Thank goodness the sun came out! We needed a little Vitamin D
 Big shout out to Tia Shawni, Cousin Sage and Unc Ben for the hand painted I heart Idaho shirt!  We LOVE it! :D
I gave Flora this flower... she was super cute with it.  
 Just studying it...
 digging with it...
...and running with it. :)
"Look over there, a purple horse!" {I turn my head and Flora's shoving dirt in her mouth} Haha! 
 And big thanks to Auntie Sammy for this cute skirt/pant set! It's an 18 month, but Flora's got long legs. ;)

 more dirt

 Just a cute pose
 and even more dirt!

 She loves me...
 She loves me not...
 ...SHE LOVES ME! :)
 Ending the day reading with dad.
The end of another amazing day.

A couple of firsts...

First spaghetti
Doing good so far...
Oh no, throwing it on the floor...
 haha... we just laughed when she did this
 She liked the noodles.  Not a huge fan of the meat sauce... yet

 Where'd all the noodles go?
 In her belly!
 Yeah, we'll try spaghetti again.
 This was today, Flora's first mouthful of dirt.
 HAHA!  Don't think there were any worms in this handful, just dirt.
 Clean mouth and a frozen banana 'pop'.
 She loves banana's.... might as well try them frozen.
 Flora's smearing her banana pop on the slider door and Bryan, in the background, devising a plan of attack to power wash the concrete patio (which turned out looking awesome btw)
 I can imagine what Flora's thinking, "SEE MOM!" ;)

 Oh no, back to the dirt!
 Flora's first cold-blooded friend.
 ... he was a little skittish

Mother's Day

Happiness and joy is what my daughter brings to my life.

I feel so very blessed each and every day to be Flora's mother.

Flora's 11 months today!

Here are some photos from our day today.
We went for a bike ride.  Flora was pretty excited about it...
 This is us just pulling into the driveway... phewy, peddling up the hill on a bike, pulling the trailer makes the leg muscles work hard!

 Such a sweet smile
 Flora LOVES this riding cow she received from her cousin Sagey.  She rides it everyday, multiple times. Thanks for the awesome hand-me-down!
 We took the fun outside.
 My little walker

 So interested in the flowers

 I just planted these pots Monday so when Flora tugged on these little purple flowers, she pulled out the entire bunch of them and the square of dirt!  HAHA!  It was pretty funny.  Just put it back, shuffled dirt around and pat, pat, pat and all was good as new.
 Too tall to walk under so she got down on all 4s.
 Probably one of my favorite photos
 Eating dirt, bark, a leaf...something. ;)
 Here she comes! :)
It's been an amazing month. Flora's walk is turning into a trot, and soon...a RUN! ;)
Mommy and Daddy love you so much!  We are in such awe of her; she's our little sponge, exploring all that is new (which is EVERYTHING) and just searching for more input.
