When Shea and I do the monthly photo shoot, I end up taking many, many photos that day. For his 13 month photo shoot, I decided to put all the photos I took that day in a little video. I think it turned out so cute!

Once Shea hit his first birthday, I thought I would be done taking the monthly photos. However, I changed my mind! I got so much positive feedback about the photos, I decided to keep doing them until he is 2. Then I will probably do it every 6 months or yearly - that seems like a long ways away (though I know it will come up quickly)!
Here is the little turkey's photos!

I know I am late, but I wanted to share my cupcakes with you all! A co-worker/friend invited us to her house for Easter and I decided to bring cupcakes. My original plan was just to decorate cupcakes with coloured icing and sprinkles, but ever since Shea's birthday, I am kind of addicted to fancy looking cupcakes! So, I did a quick google search and found this link: http://parispastry.blogspot.com/2009/03/easter-cupcakes_21.html
They turned out great! It was pretty simple to do. Though next time I would use regular icing rather than cream cheese icing because cream cheese icing isn't pure white and the marshmallows were pure white. I doubt anybody noticed though - well, except me :) I used a jelly bean instead of a m&m or similar shaped candy - I really liked it. I did try to find black licorice for the whiskers, but string black licorice is hard to find in the stores! I think I will buy some and keep it in my cupboard for occasions like this.
I had some extra cupcakes, so I just decorated them simply with little chicks that I picked up at Michaels the other day. They are cute too!
I really have to say that I love google - there are so many talented people out there and I love that they share their ideas! Thank you to all that share your ideas!!
Here is Shea looking for easter eggs :)
Hope everyone had a lovely holiday!

My mother saw a video on UTube where the parents took a picture of their child everyday for the first year and then put it in video form. She wanted me to do the same for Shea so badly that she printed the first 5 months of dates and brought them to me. This is the end result:
