Once a Diva Always a DIVA


My beautiful, beautiful girl! I must admit I LOVE having a little girl. I see the Daddy-son things Blaze does and I cant wait to have Mommy-daughter days like, visiting the salon for little finger nail painting days, clothes shopping and lots and lots of girly stuff with Dylan.


One short year ago...

Happy 1st Birthday Princess
Dylan remains the littlest Diva. She is small but mighty and lets everyone know it. She wins ALL the tug-of-wars in this household. Our little Tough Cookie! She is definitely our defiant little child, stubborn and determined. She is also our serious, but happy little girl, smiling often and squealing with delight when we enter the room. Its such an amazing feeling to come home after 13 hours at work and have Blaze run to the door with such excitement and then Dylan greet me with a huge snaggle tooth smile (only one top tooth has come in and the other is just sitting there taking its sweet ole' time) and ear piercing high-pitched scream of joy. Have I mentioned how blessed I am? ;)

Love this face!

Snaggle Tooth Girl
We have decided Dylan will be our Scientist. She uses her index finger to explore everything from the buttons on the TV remote control to the details on your face. She grabs anything that's within her reach at the blink of an eye and the tug-of-war is ON...she ain't letting go for nothing.



She absolutely loves both of her 'Ba ba's' (brothers) and crawls along behind them trying with all her might to keep up. Although a little slower, we are pretty certain it wont be long before she is leading the pack. She has been a little slower at 'baby firsts' then her little twin brother Jett but, her slow & steady attitude has made her a quick learner. She crawled about 2 weeks later then Jett taking her cautious time. Jett took his first steps just the other night and she is definitely ready but would prefer to get down and crawl still till she is certain she has this balance thing down pat. She is definitely more consistent and repetitious in her speech and she can say, 'Mama', ' Dada' , ' Nana '(Nanny), 'Baba', 'Hi', 'Hi Mama' & 'Hi Dada', and most recently, 'Dawwwgg' (dog).
 
 
 She has become a much more contented child, not demanding of ALL the attention.

HAIR!!!! Oh that hair! Dylan's bedhead hair has become some of my Facebook friends favorite photos. She has not lost one bit of it from the day she was born. I truly think it's the one big thing about Dylan. I am enjoying buying bows and trying hard to teach Daddy how to put in a pony tail.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 Dylan absolutely LOVES to dance. She shakes her shoulders and bounces up and down whenever she hears music. She most definitely will be our little ballerina, as she already does the most perfect arabesque and loves to be on her tippy toes. :) She can clap, and wave with an open hand and with a cute little open and closed fist as soon as she hears "hi" or "bye.".


She remains as petite as ever, and its funny to dress her in her 0-3 mth clothes at 13 mths, sometimes I think I am dressing a little doll. She still could pass for 3 months old, and so many people comment that she is SO much smaller in person then her pictures. I have deemed her my tiny, beautiful Indian Princess.

 
My girl the 'A' in DAD for Father's Day

We are so thankful for our amazing little girl and can't wait to see what the future holds for this ballerina-scientist-tenacious Diva.
