Day 204: Happy Birthday Baby!

As of today I have been a parent for an entire decade. Wow. She has changed so much… she is loving, determined and intelligent… also stubborn, dramatic and has a wide diva streak. I can’t believe this willful, wonderful creature has been in my life for so long. Happy 10th birthday Sweetheart.


Day 201: Birthday party

Today my eldest celebrated her 10th birthday with a few friends. They had a great time swimming in the pool, painting on canvas bags and generally being children. I made this super easy cake for her and I have to say it was a hit!

Day 166: Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day everyone! We had a quiet, yet fun day in my opinion. Here is my hubby with all of his girls. As you’ve seen in previous days we hand made his gifts this year. He ended up with salt dough handprints, a set of pictures spelling out the word Daddy and a t-shirt we decorated by drawing on fine grade sand paper with crayon and then ironing onto the shirt. It was a generally awesome day.

Day 163: Getting Ready….

I LOVE this! I am getting these framed and along with painted salt dough hand prints, this is what my Hubby is getting for Father’s Day this coming weekend. I think I’ll help DD#1 make him some canolli tarts and maybe lasagne. Anyways, I am loving how these pictures turned out! Tomorrow… hand print painting and father’s day card making. Woot!

Day 67: 9 Months Old

9 months old… time is surely flying! DD#5 got her first tooth on 02/28/2012, had her first taste of strawberries and unfortunately got her second double ear infection and a throat infection. She’s an awesome little eater, crawls like the speed demon that she is and cruises at every given opportunity. She recently discovered a great love of peek-a-boo and will play it for hours given half a chance. She says the standard Ma-ma-ma and Da-da-da, but no real words as of yet. She is very social and friendly and has acting coy down to an art. She is truely is a continuous delight… even at 3am when she decides she wants to play.
