the hello kitty mermaid cake

Carolyn, 11 months

the pink package

A little snippet with the kiddos after Eli's nap. We read a few of his favorites then went for a walk to look for horses down the road. Little did we know that there would be a package in the mailbox. 
add a sweater because we're going outside…
ah…those chompers. Two things he clearly inherited from me.
wait, one more book before we go…
And now it's time to look for the horses across the road.
and sit on a rock…
and find things like this…
Do you see it? The lone shaggy pony who wanted nothing to do with us. Oh well.
They still had fun climbing the fence and chasing one another.
There is just something about a mud puddle no matter how small. Bert doesn't look happy though. 
And then she spied this on the way back home.
behold the power of Disney! 
Thank you, Aunt Liz. You made Cedar's day. xoxo

The birthday girl at school

"Happy birthday to you…happy birthday dear Cedar…happy birthday to you!"
There's something about the above photo that makes me want to swoop up my baby girl and rock her in my arms. Little miss independent soaking up the birthday song and holding back a smile. She was our 4 lb peanut in the beginning and now I look at her sitting at the table eating cupcakes with her girlfriends and being that kid who has the pink tennis shoes that the other girls desire.

baby Bryce

Our friends BT and Cat just had their first baby. Well I guess I shouldn't say first, they have a Boston Terrier named Bradley who you'll meet in a sec. Sweet little Bryce is 2 weeks old here and looks a lot like his daddy. It's hard to believe mine were ever this small. Wow, it really does fly by! Bryce was awake when I arrived then Cat put him into a milk induced sleep…
These are some of my favorites from our little photo session together. 

Bryce met his cousins Nora and Hazel for the first time while I was there. Nora has the best curls and was quite smitten by Bryce.
Bradley is still warming up to his brother.
