We celebrated my niece Nicole's first birthday this weekend!!! Nicole looked so precious all dressed up in her birthday tutu. What little girl doesn't love a tutu?
Jillian also loved celebrating with her cousin. She partied so much that she slept in her car seat from the time we left my sister's house around 9pm until 4:30am. This is sleep record for her. Why did it have to be in her car seat and not in her crib? Mommy and Daddy did not get any sleep because of this. We were on edge all night thinking that this child had to wake up soon to eat but it was simply not the case. We just left her in the car seat next to my side of the bed. She was exhausted! Of course last night she was back to sleeping in three hour intervals again. I do have to say that we officially have her days and nights FINALLY turned around. She is now going to bed between 9-10pm and is up for good around 7am. We just have to get more sleep time in between those hours!

On a home decor note, here are the awesome Target valances that my sister put up in her breakfast room that I am still considering for our kitchen window. I think they are so cute and the grommets really add a modern touch to the room. Great find Deb!
