My princess turned 1 on Wednesday and I can't believe it! She's wearing the Birthday outfit I bought her (that I've been wanting for a while). I'm kind of obsessed with it for the moment because I love Russian dolls and Dahlia looks so cute in it. When she put the beaded necklace on her head yesterday I just had to get a photo of her as my little hippie baby.

She's such a joy and as active as they come. She's a very smiley baby and gives other people reason to smile as they pass us. Little tantrums have begun and it can be very frustrating when she needs my help but does NOT want it. But, I love it at the same time. I love her fiery and very communicative personality and I'm glad she can hold her own. Here's to strong girls!

She loves climbing up on to things and one of her latest favorites is a tin can (photo below). She is joy to my heart. I love my little Dahlia.

I'm good at jumping over walls

A few months ago we were leaving my sister's house and Soren accidentally dropped one of his precious toys over a wall. The other side was a terrace garden and the ground was lower. Jason attempted to climb the wall/fence but didn't quite make it. I think he might have ripped his jeans (don't worry babe--it's obvious you're much strong than me ;). . .anyway, I gave it a shot and got over pretty easily and rescued the straggler.

I forgot about doing this and then oneday whilst at the park with Soren, Dahlia and some friends I was reminded of it. My friend Niki's son had done pretty much the same thing that Soren did while they were playing so Soren told them that I would be able to get it since I was good at climbing over walls. . .I think this one was much higher though. . .

That made me feel pretty tough. There are some perks to being a dancer. I'm good at fake fighting too. When Soren has just watched Power Rangers LOOK OUT cuz here we come!!!
