I decided to try taking Abi's birthday photos myself. I learned a lot... But I think they came out pretty well in spite of my noob-ness. It helps to have an awesome subject!

Abi is officially a year old today. She had a rocky start, but you'd never know it now!
She is EVERYWHERE, chasing those brothers of hers. They adore her - Jon even burst into tears when she had her shots today, because he was so upset that she was hurting. She's got the right name: "My father's joy." That man can't get enough of his little girl. I love having a female buddy around! The boys are fun, but I enjoy having somebody who likes going shopping and eating chocolate with me.
Abi is always smiley and laughing. Her favorite pastime is dancing. She has a mischievous streak, but snuggles her way out of trouble frequently.
We've got a tradition of picking characters that represent our kids' personalities for their first birthday theme - Isaac was Curious George, Jon was Godzilla, Kai was a mix of Pinky and the Brain, and Abi is most definitely Rainbow Dash! (From "My Little Pony Friendship is Magic") She's sassy, athletic, and just plain fun!
Gotta be honest - Abi has thrown us for a few loops in the last couple years, but we are overjoyed to have this little girl in our family!

I hate posting by just dumping pictures out there once a month, with few captions. I feel like it's not a very good representation of how we do things (Baileys are FANTASTIC at talking!). But, Mark is sick (possibly headed to a sinus infection after his surgery), Isaac is either having an allergic reaction to something, or a super weird case of the chicken pox (the doc said it's totally possible, since he's vaccinated, and it presents strangely in the 2% of vaccinated kids that still get it), Jeeves peed an ocean in my basement (big dogs have big bladders...), school is out for the summer, I got glutened, and it made my hands swell up and develop a rash that feels like a burn (autoimmune disorders are so weird), and Abi hasn't been sleeping well. So I'm tired and busy. And yes, this post is heavy on the Abi pictures, because I missed posting for her 10 month day. Anyway (see, FANTASTIC talker...), here's the pictures:
He wasn't crying over having a bow in his hair. He was crying because he wanted a different color...
