12 MONTHS & a Birthday Giveaway!

At 5:39am our baby girl turned ONE! 
Time has gone by SO fast & while I wish it would slow down just a bit, seeing how much Abigail has grown and developed over the past year blows my mind. 

To finish off our monthly tradition, here is her 12 month update photo: 

|| You are blowing kisses now, which totally melts this mama's heart. 

|| You give kisses too. Sloppy, snotty, open mouthed kisses and they are THE best! 

|| You hate everything about your changing table. One look at it and you actually start melting down. Not sure what that is all about. We do a lot of changing diapers on the floor now. 

|| You start in your big girl classroom on Monday at school. It breaks my heart but makes me so excited for you. Sleeping on a cot, sitting at a big girl table, and getting to play on the playground, with your BFF for the matter (even if it is a forced relationship ;) ) 

|| You love playing guitar with your daddy and you know exactly what to do with the pick. And you don't even try and put it in your mouth anymore! 

|| You still sleep like a champ. Down at 6:30pm and up around 7am.. or when we wake you up! 
|| You don't use bottles anymore and only use a pacifier at night & nap time. 

|| Whole milk was a struggle at first but now you love it! And mama and daddy's wallets love it too! 

|| You say your own versions of puppy, bubbles, dada and mama (baba). You've said 'HI!' to me, twice and you talk baby gibberish from sunrise to sunset. 

|| You have two teeth out, one that is in the process of popping through and three more on their way. 

|| You love to share whatever you have in your hands..Whether it is an Easter egg or chewed up food, you love to share the love! 

|| You are a climbing monster! It is can be climbed, you climb it! You climb into your high chair and sit in it yourself, you climb the stairs at Nanna and Grampies and you climb on top of your big bean bag so daddy can drag you down it like a slide. 

||You kick your legs like a frog every single time you get out of the bathtub. It's adorable. And I think you keep doing it because you know it makes me smile :) 

|| You are the happiest, most loving, perfect girl. You make our world so much better and are days so much brighter. 

To celebrate Abigail turning ONE & Mother's Day, I am SO excited to share this giveaway with you! 

Freshly Picked Moccasins just might be the best shoe on the PLANET! 
They are stylish, easy to put on and most importantly, stay on your child's feet! 

Freshly Picked was recently featured on ABC's Shark Tank, rightfully so. 
They are available in so many different colors and styles with new colors coming out what seems like EVERY DAY! 

Now, if only they would come out with an adult sized collection. 
FP, are you listening?! ;) 

Freshly Picked has been kind enough to offer up a pair of their adorable moccasins to one of my readers! 

You'll get to pick any size and any color from their selection. 
I know, I can't believe it either!!!

||Abigail is wearing a size 3 in the platinum color||
