Ponytail and a Party

Rowan sported her very first ponytail over the weekend! Very exciting! Especially since we had to wait 12 whole months for her lovely locks of hair.

Mimi and Papa came over Saturday and played with Rowee. They went on a bike-ride, played ball, played gymnastics on the wood rack, and drank lots of yummy orange drink. Rowan was especially fond of Mimi's glass and ice cubes...something new for her I guess.

Later that night we headed over to Aunt Janel's house for a combined birthday party: Cousin Cort's 1st birthday, Cousin Lorelei's 3rd birthday, and buddy Alivia's 3rd it was a PARTY! Lot's of crazy kids, fun princess hats and even a candy bracelet (Rowee's personal favorite).

Lil' Gardener

Rowan and Daddy did some gardening one afternoon...well Daddy did most of the gardening and Rowan ripped the tops off the flowers and played in the dirt. Here's a cute clip...

Other noteworthy moments include...
Decapitating flowers...and then gently placing the flower on top of the bunch...a nice gesture I guess. Here she is caught in the act...

getting dirty of course

Rowan's 1st Birthday!

Well, this is late -- but it's hard to find time these days to blog! We had Rowan's 1st birthday party a few weeks ago and despite a little bit of rain and a packed house -- it was a success!

Rowan had fun opening up presents with mommy and playing with her cousins and friends. She was (as usual) a little shy with all of the commotion and people...but she warmed up eventually and got right down to the business of playing. She wasn't too much of a fan of the singing and everyone staring at her during the cake part...but it was at least amusing for all of us to watch her squirm. My mom said I was exactly like Rowan at her age and put my head down at my 1st party to hide when everyone sang to me. So she gets it honest I guess :)

Here are some pics...
