One Year and Off to the Races

Can't believe it, but Penny is already ONE year old. How did that happen? I'm glad we're at this point for many reasons - 1) Penny is sleeping a lot at night now (usually up at 3am, but I think that might wane in the next few weeks); 2) Dylan and Penny are really starting to have fun together; 3) Penny's personality is really starting to blossom and it's so fun to be a part of it; and, 4) (this is the selfish one) I am starting to feel like I am getting a little time back to myself.

We had a fun, low-key party for Penny on her birthday. Dylan really enjoyed celebrating Penny. She also got a hello kitty plush that was intended for Penny, but Penny doesn't mind right now. Penny is all over the place these days. She went from taking a few steps here and there to just outright running almost. It's hilarious to see her walking around everywhere holding her arms up high in the air for balance. It's like she's a little puppet with strings.

We are getting ready for a fun trip to Albuquerque for Christmas. It will be nice to see some mountains and spend some time with family. We will be sad not to be able to spend time with family in TN - I guess that's just one of the unfortunate things about living all spread out. Here are some recent photos of yours truly - well, mostly the kiddos.
