Since Stella and Pixie were both rescues, I had to pick a “birthday”. Stella’s first visit to the vet was on Valentine’s Day – so we chose that day. Then when Pixie came along – I just made her birthday the same day. Easy to remember. And way more fun.
Even though these two don’t get much camera time lately – with Max and Sarah taking up all my attention during the day, I do still love these two so much. And they get ALL Mama’s love and attention once Max and Sarah are are asleep for the night.
I took this snapshot of them from my phone. They are looking at me like “why are you taking our picture and not giving us treats!?”
Happy Birthday girls!! xoxo
I bought a silly pair of sunglasses for Sarah – knowing full well they would probably only stay on her head for .26 seconds.
I don’t get how people get pics of their kids in hats –or any accessory! My kids usually tear them off before I even get them on all the way, let alone ever get a picture of them in it.
Even though Sarah doesn’t use a pacifier often (only when she thinks it’s funny to scream during Max’s nap time or she’s overly fussy) – I gave it to her anyway – hoping to transition her easily into sunglass-wearing-totally-cool-take-my-picture mode.
Nope. She wanted both the pacifier and the sunglasses gone – within seconds.
And that was that.
It’s a work of art… Sarah’s ever changing hairdo.
These pictures are of Sarah after a nap this weekend. She wakes up in the morning (or from naps) with these crazy hairdos.
I don’t dare touch it, comb it, wet it, brush it, tame it, change it.
IT IS SARH. AND IT IS AWESOME.
Oh and the green stuff all over her? Avacado. We have lunch right after her morning nap.
Autumn is here. I can feel that slight earth/sun shift. I love it. It’s my favorite season. Pumpkins, autumn leaves, scarves, hot chocolate…
Last year I was so busy and stressed I never even bought a pumpkin! And you know how much I love my pumpkins! Well this year I’m definitely buying a few.
This tree sits right outside Max and Sarah’s bedroom window. I’m not sure what kind of tree it is. It’s very small and the leaves are only about 1 inch in size. Fortunately, the leaves are this beautiful ‘autumn’ color most of the year. The sun hits it just right in the mornings. It’s a lovely sight to wake up to…
Sarah turned one. Way back in May. But I didn’t finish her ONE YEAR book until fairly recently. What? I’m really sorry. I’ve been sort of busy. Geez.
I started working on it a long time ago. I just didn’t finish it until recently. Is that ok with you?
One is the loneliest number (if you click and watch the music video, is it just me, or does he look like Owen Wilson?) unless of course you share your ONE year birthday celebration with your big brother Max and the frogs!
Anyway… thought I’d share the book with y’all. It’s fun to see how little raisins turn into cute little monkeys in the first year.
