This past weekend we got Astoria's ears pierced. I've been wanting to get it done for a long time but the places we went to told us her lobes were too small. So I waited...for 9 long months (I couldn't do if for the first 3 months because she had to have shots beforehand), lol. Then Megan told us about a place called La Lobe and off we went. They specialize in baby piercings and have been in business for 20+ years. They are smaller earrings than what you would find at Claire's because they don't use a gun...they use a hollow needle. The experience wasn't too bad. The worst part was her having to be held tightly..after they were done she stopped crying almost immediately. Oh and diamonds are a girls best friend, especially if it's your birthstone too! :)

It's YOUR day my little one! You are the light of my eyes and the beat of my heart. You make my world a better place and give me a reason to smile every day. I cannot believe you are turning 1. The year has gone by so fast as I knew it would. No longer do you allow me to hold you for hours on end, you are too busy moving and grooving. You now want to feed yourself and hate taking time out for a diaper change. You were small at birth, 6lbs 10oz, and you are still small at one year, 18lbs, but you have the appetite of grown man, it's amazing. I have yet to find a food you do not like, perhaps you'll be like me and love all kinds of foods when you grow up. You are very much a thinker, like me, it's not very often you make a rash decision, you ponder things before you make a move. Your father and I are very proud parents. You have family and friends that love you just as much as we do. It has been amazing to watch you grow this past year and I cannot wait to see what the next year holds for all of us! WE love you Astoria!
Here are some pictures from her first birthday:
