Thirteen Months!

So, Tessa will be fourteen months old tomorrow, and I never posted her thirteen month post (or her Ventura or Riverside birthday party posts)! By now, the past two months are blending together, so I'm just going to say that on April 23rd, Tessa finally proved that she can walk on her own! She doesn't choose to walk very often without holding onto my finger, but we KNOW she can, because she does occasionally! Tomorrow (or whenever I get around to it), when I post her 14 month post, I'll have to update on all of Tessa's growth and milestones for the past 2 months!

We're still here!

Man, life has been crazy lately! Well, as crazy as life can get for a stay-at-home mom! I am feeling so behind on my blog! Tessa has been going to bed later than usual, so I haven't felt like blogging by the time she is down. I wanted to post a few cute pictures of her, though!

First of all, happy Mother's Day! We had a great day. Tessa decided it was time to get up at 5:15, but fortunately for me, Ryan got up with her and I got to sleep in! Yay for Mother's Day! I made Tessa these diaper covers during her nap using this tutorial. They were pretty easy, although I needed a little help from my mom!

They are too big, but she'll grow into them before I know it!

Today Tessa had a casting call for Carter's. Hopefully she'll book it! I was reminded that it's time to update her photo resume, (I'm not sure what it's really called. That's just what I call it!) so I borrowed my friend's fancy camera and had my sister come over to take some pictures. She took over 700 pics, and of course most of them aren't usable, but they sure are cute! Here are three of my favorite non-usable photos:
