Quarterly Top 5

I found this blog link-up while browsing and the linky finally opened today!  I've been super excited about it, I even put it on my calendar to remind myself to do it.  Basically, each quarter of the year, you get to pick your top five favorite photos of your kids (or pets) and post them on your blog.  Then, you link up at Amber's Articles and are entered for a chance to win some great prizes.  I don't so much care about the prizes, I was more excited about going through all my pictures and finding my five favorites!  It took some time, but I found about twelve favorites and then narrowed it down from there.  I hope you enjoy the photos and the stories that go with each!

This was taken the day before H's first birthday party.  I blew up 100 balloons for the occasion and at one point, they were all in the living room on the floor.  H loved it!  She carried them around and played with them.  I love this expression of pure glee!  

H thoroughly enjoyed her cake that her Aunt S made for her for her first birthday.  She started out carefully eating the icing flowers off the top, but with a little help, dug in and was eating it by the fist full!  
H LOVES her cousin.  I think if we would let her, she would hug and kiss him all day long!  Luckily, he's a tough little guy and can take it.  

There really is no story behind this picture.  I just love that stinky little smile!  She looks so grown up and darling and this is definitely one of my five favorites.  

H loves to be outside!  She loves walks, playing in the hose, playing in the dirt, and just being out there.  I just love how this picture shows that.  There is so much to see outside that I rarely catch her looking at the camera, but that's okay.  Some of the best pictures are ones where she's just doing what she does!

Thanks again! I had so much fun with this challenge. Yes, 100 balloons was a little crazy and will probably never happen again. I had a hand pump to help me...I think I'd have passed out if I'd tried without it! She is a lot of fun! :)
