some people have a knack for putting things together, carrie is definitely one of those people. it's the little touches that make her house one to envy. every little nook has something fun to look at and every couple months it changes to suit the season. if that wasn't enough, her yard is to die for and her girls are even cuter. i'm sad because soon she'll be moving, but i'm excited to see what she does with a bigger house. carrie, if you're reading this, i think your fantastic, it's good to be your friend. love, me

our baby boy is 3 months old today! it really has gone by way to fast. he's well over 15 pounds and is quite active. we all get such a kick out of listening to him laugh and coo. we definitely have been blessed with a great baby. people always ask what it's like to have teenagers and a baby and i have to say for anyone who's interested, it has been the best experience for my older two. there are so many lessons being learned and such a sweetness in a teenager that you might not otherwise get to see. they learn patience and love that only a baby can deliver. i wouldn't change a thing! we love you baby boy!

the graduation ceremony was super cute. they had a little play, in which, the little princess was the sparkly ladybug (it was the rainbow fish story line) bob the builder wasn't able to be there so we decided to have an "after party" and invite the family over to watch the video and have dinner and dessert. it was a nice evening, we had pizza and ladybug cupcakes. i posted a picture of the cupcakes, they turned out cute. the other picture is a little gift we put together for her preschool friends.
everything turned out perfect, i even got a quilt done for her teacher. i'm sad it's over but i look forward to the future and from now on i have promised myself to document a lot more and try to stop and take the moments that matter in. goodnight.

#1 baby's first laugh
Saturday, June 07, 2008
i had errands to run today and had no intention of taking the little princess with me. looking at the picture you can imagine why. however, as i was about to walk out the door she came running to me asking to come. what do you say...no. no, you say sure, i'd love to spend time with you. i did ask her to change but it was no use, she really thought she looked great. it would have crushed her if i told her otherwise, she put so much effort into it. so, off we went me and the genie. we got a few looks but the smiles made her all the more confident. don't you wonder where that confidence goes...and at what point does a smile become a criticism. i could be the mom who fights the ongoing battle to make sure my sweet 4 year old is dressed impeccably every time we leave the house and make her as neurotic as the rest of us, or i can let her be herself and express her creativity thru her clothes even when it pains me to do so. it might be an uphill battle, but i'm going to do my best to keep her believing that a smile is exactly that, a smile. wish me luck.
