Two Very Important Birthdays

Two of my favorite little ladies celebrated their birthdays last week/month: Cabo turned 3. And our baby niece, Joan, turned 1.

Cabo got loads of attention and ridiculous/gourmet $2418 per pound doggie treats for her birthday because we love her and spoil her more than anyone probably should spoil their dog.

Now, our girl is 3 years old/strong/opinionated/goofy/playful/shy/protective/curious/gentle, but she was once just a little pup: 15lbs of fur and bone, found wandering the streets of NM before she adopted US and changed our world :)

GAH that FACE?! She kills me. She’s pretty much the sweetest dog, ever.

Cabo got to enjoy copious amounts of real-person birthday cake with the little lady of the year — Joan — during her 1st birthday “Cake Smash”.

Joan is our only (for now, hopefully!) niece and guurrrrlll does she have my heart.

ILOVETHISBABE.

I mean, I dunno, yeah, she’s alright :)

Joan at 1 is sweet as can be; mellow and tender; genuinely happy; playful and smiley; and juuuust on the verge of taking off into the world of walk-running. Gosh, those little legs, when they stand up and tumble down as she tries taking an unassisted step. I can’t even handle it.

Then it was time for cake!

Joan’s big bro, James (he’s 3+ now), had fun helping with the cake smash, too.

We may or may not have smooshed his face into the cake. Come on! Was his face not in perfect position?! He was totally asking for it ;)

I can’t believe it’s been a whole year, baby girl. My have you grown :)

Where has the time gone?

Yeah…  Okay, we really love being aunt and uncle :)

  1. There is so much that I absolutely LOVE about this post! Mostly- you make me feel a little more sane knowing that Matt & I aren’t the only ones that absolutely spoil our fur-baby :-)!! And what an ADORABLE little niece!
