Joie de Vivre

Sweet snickerdoodles!  How is it possible that 2011 is over?

It LITERALLY started with this:
Baby Rhymeswithsmile - 1/1/2011, 7:43 AM
 What started as an 8.5 pounds bundle of tears screaming joy became this before too long:

February 2011
She didn't want to miss out on any fun.  So we hit the road.  First stop: Mountains of North Carolina.
March 2011 - Baby RWS meets Mommy's hometown buddies
Soon, it was this:

April 2011 - The Three E Cousins at 5 months, 4 months, and 3 months old
May 2011 - Family Graduation, Greensboro NC
May 2011 - Little Girl visits Mater Alma Mater, Greenville SC
Summer came along so quickly ... and Baby Rhymeswithsmile worked on with emotional responsiveness, mobility, and a keen interest in riding in the Blue Baby Chariot:

June 2011
July 2011
August 2011 - Dayton, OH
We tried this:
September 2011 - Relative Disaster because Car Camping
means Closeby Neighbors.   Whoops.
October 2011 - Again - disaster.  But this time we were in the woods,
so there weren't as many people to hear and be woken up
by the midnight screams of our sweet precious (she typed ironically).  
Fall.  Amazing.  Time with those we love (and are named after):
November 2011 - UNC-CH with Aunt Becky
And a Merry Christmas:

End of the year, already?  How did that happen?


  1. So many wonderful memories and such a precious girl!

    Just think how much can (& will) happen in year #2!

    Love you!


  2. LOVE IT! Gosh she looks just like her Aunt B!
