Annabel was much more awake during the day yesterday – it’s like she read all these comments and was like, “no one is turning ME upside down!”
The weather here in LA has been absolutely beautiful – borderline hot, even – so we all went on a nice walk. After a while Annie got a little squirmy in her stroller, so I laid her down on a nice patch of grass.
Rigby had fun, too:
Annie is so fun when she’s awake. But, she already is showing major attitude. I will tell her not to do something, and she’ll still do it.
if you can’t see the video above, click here
I’m clearly going to have a big problem with this kid.
PS the video is early this week because I have an important post for Friday!
Those photos are the most adorable thing I have seen today, or will probably see tomorrow. Happy St Patrick’s Day to you all xxx

Isn’t the spring weather just lovely? We’re hoping to go to the beach Saturday.

I’ll take a chicken biskit and a smile to go please! She really is looking a lot like her daddy…..so cute!
Love that shy look, then sideways grin…kinda sly and sweet.
Fabulous day of sun in So Cal today!!!
Thinking of you and your family and wishing you peace and serenity in special moments.

You better crack down on that defiance and extreme cuteness before she becomes a juvenile delinquent.:) And I still want to eat her. Just a little bite, maybe?

What a lovely smile. Makes my heart melt.
Oh oh…I feel my ovaries stiring again!
OMG! I thought that was a video of Mike at first!
That look she gave right before she smiled…ha ha!! She is such a cutie and it’s easy to see how happy she is. Rigby looks happy, too! I forgot all about St. Pat’s Day! It’s not celebrated in Germany, but you’d think I wouldn’t forget it so easily after growing up in the States … and having a bit of Irish blood myself. Glad you guys had a fun, happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Absolutely adorable xxx

More than anything, it’s wonderful hearing your awesomely beautiful “mom voice” again in these videos. So much love in your voice (and coming right back from Annie’s eyes and smile).

Aw, I love that video. Her defiant streak has kicked in early. Not sure if that means she takes after you or Mike.
Also, that first picture on the blanket is fantastic.

.-= Jess´s last blog ..Work gets in the way of online time! =-.
Just like when you’re feeding a baby and open your mouth when you flying the spoon in for landing, I was smiling every time you said, “don’t smile”!
She is so gorgeous!!
Awww! I couldn’t get my daughter to smile at me that early–just the brick wall behind me or the ceiling fan or lamp. What a good kid!
She’s smiling already? Wow, the time flies by … she is absolutely adorable, and it’s great to hear the happiness in your voice, too.
Linda Campbell says:
What a beautiful smile! Makes me melt!! Believe it or not, we are having nice weather here in Canada too!!
The look on her face is so adorable! It’s like she’s thinking “I wont smile.. I wont smile… I won’t smile… can’t do it! *SMILE*” She is preciousness defined.
I am so glad to hear the happiness in your voice! What a sweet family you all are!

Adorable! Of course, you are telling her “don’t smile” in a fun voice, so you are confusing the poor thing! I love these videos!
Oh my she is just so adorable!!!
The baby is of course adorable, but I had trouble concentrating on her, ’cause I was so focused on the Chickin in a Biskit crackers behind her….oh my, you have good taste in crackers…..yummmm

I can already tell she’s changed! Her legs are looking less like little spindly newborn legs and more like baby legs. SO CUTE! And she looks just like Mike!
.-= Alicia @bethsix´s last blog ..Bethsack!: The Contents =-.
OMG – she is adorable!!! I loved her little side smile and then a big full grin. When she did that, I couldn’t help but cry happy tears…she is sooo darn cute!!! Seeing her smile reminds me how easily and frequent Maddie would smile…seems like all you had to do is call her name. 2 sweet baby girls!!
Enjoy your “summer” like days!! I can relate…okay, well maybe a little b/c it has been very warm here to!! Wel…for Canadian standards.
Hope your anouncement on Friday is a positive one.
Oh, she’s getting so big!
And as much as I love baby pictures, it always makes me so happy to see pictures of Rigby as well. What can I say? I’m a total sucker for dogs *and* babies.

Oh man, that’s awesome. My parents used to do that to me (dooooooon’t smiiiiilllllle!) when I was a little kid. You just gave me a happy.
Also, the suspense!
BEAUTIFUL photos of Annie!!! I especially love the first one, great shot of this beautiful girl!
Alli E. says:
Oh Heather that video! I can’t even stand it! I’m being induced tomorrow with my little Lola who is the youngest of my 6 (yeah, so I’m crazy…so what?) and the quiet behind you talking to her is something I won’t have. I just love that you two have this sweet time together!
I would totally love to hang out with you guys. Diet Coke galore, Chicken in a Biscuit crackers, and a totally adorable baby with 150% kissable cheeks!! I remember doing that same thing with my kiddos when they were babies. Your videos bring back so many memories for me. :o)
She looks so much like her Daddy!
Was totally smiling watching that video. I’m bad at following directions too.

I love the outfit, of course at first glance I thought it said “Daddy’s Yacky Charm” and I spent a few moments thinking about what that might mean before I realized that 1) yesterday WAS St. Patrick’s Day and 2) my daughter has a shirt that says the same thing so I better turn my brain on!
What a cutie!

Oh , she is such a clone of her wonderful; Daddy ! Love the side ways grin. Love you , too , Heather. Glad to hear the joy and laughter in your voice. That’s the most beautifulvideo I’ve heard and seen in a while !
Oh the CUTENESS!! Both of you!!
Your daughters are both beautiful. It was so great to see both of their smiling faces in the same screen. (Annie’s smiling face on the blanket in the grass beside Maddie’s toothfilled grin on the sidebar.)
Thanks for sharing your lives with us!
Alright, just in case you aren’t aware those chicken in a biscuit crackers are best eaten with cream cheese spread out on top. Just plain cream cheese on top of the chicken in a biscuit! Delicious!

what a cutie pie
Aw she looks so content to be out in the sun and grass!
I’m studying for two exams, and my reward is a video of an adorable baby! Thank you As my dad would say, she’s such a doll!
So cute! I love how she doles out the smile a little at a time. First, sticking out the lower lip, then one corner of her mouth comes up, then the full smile and giggle.
Maria Delgado says:
First of all. How does grass ever look that perfect?
2nd of all. I wish I could meet u and Annie! She is a DREAM!
Awww she loooooves her mommy.

oh my GOD when she smiled my heart burst. i just want to kiss her cheeks!!
Heather, that video is so precious…you just want to kiss those cheeks! I am loving this sunny California weather too (in the Bay Area)…wouldn’t want to live anywhere else in the world. Wishing you warm sunny spring days reminding us all of the promise of new life. What a blessing Annabel is!
Oh, she is a princess!!

This is totally my first time commenting here, but I had to because there is CHICKEN IN A BISCUIT in the background of that video. Chicken! In a Biscuit! I haven’t had that in AGES. Now I totally want some and it’s 11:30 here, so I doubt that’s gonna happen.
Annie is ADORABLE and I just want to eat her sweet little cheeks up. I love that sweet little smile of hers!

Oh my, that smile must just make your heart melt every time you see it! It melted mine, to jelly.
She’s so sweet. She looks just like Mike.:)
I also wanted to say that I always access your page through remembermaddie.com… and every time I start to type that… I do that. I think of Maddie every time.
Can I just say Heather that I LOVE LOVE LOVE Annie posts? And Annie vidoes? and Annie pictures????
SHE IS ADORABLE.

I totally agree with your earlier post, you will NEVER regret these photos of your baby!
I’m reminded of childhood–VDog would say, “I see that smile!” to get our babysis to smile. ;p
