Exhausted, Happy.

I refused to let today pass by as just another regular day. I am tired of normal days. So me and the girls hosted a birthday party. A party for their two favorite stuffed animals. First birthday girl, Grace's kitty, a female originally named "Louie" who changed her name to "Kelsey" right before the party. I agree, it's much more feminine. Ruby picked Pluto, no Mickey, no Pluto, okay Mickey it is. Swaddled them like babies and we had ourselves some MAKE BELIEVE, darn it!! Add some sugar....
... and I caught Ruby drinking these sprinkles like rain. Bottle half gone in 2.5 seconds.
Singing Happy Birthday to "Louie-Kelsey" and Mick.
Soon after the party, we tried Lill out in her new Bumbo chair. A success. Won't someone donate some hair for that forehead of hers? It's going to take her awhile to grow some of her own...
Worried Lill? Ya, me too.This 5-yr-old knows just how to nuzzle a baby.

Her mouth tastes more delicious than you can imagine...
And yet another day has passed. Maybe it's this Jeremy Larson that I'm listening to, but I feel so much. I feel an ocean for these beauties.

I seriously just got choked up looking at Ruby's sweet face singing Happy Birthday. And that Lill!!! Sar I have to see her! And to answer your question: my favorite JL song is Today. But I really like them all. Isn't he amazing?

I've not even sort of gotten the hang of two and I click on your blog knowing well that I'll leave wanting a third. Right now. Another girl please. One with crazy hair again. (It adds character.)

Oh and yes--- we rented our house out pretty easily. It's been perfect so far (knock on wood) except when they accidently turned off the sprinklers and killed the grass. It's two young, single guys with great credit (NOT what we were seeing in this market--- everyone walking away from something... tons of ruined credit....) so far so good.

Seriously sarah! The girls are gorgeous. I say it's time for a trip to good old Arizona. I remember holding grace and ruby when they were just little little babies. Now its time I hold Lillie. :)

Oh my gosh. That last picture. I seriously hope that's like a 16x20 on your wall somewhere. Oh, I want to sniff her little neck. And those skinny little baby feet. I'm having Braiden's hair cut AGAIN in a couple of weeks...I'll mail you some sweet, curly hair for that pretty little head.

I love the birthday party idea. How fun! :o)

I was just thinking I would give Gwennie a little hair cut. That long stuff on top is buggin'. Should I send the trimmings your way?

Laurel said...

I can't even stand how much I love your sweet approach to life. I SO want to be a mom like you when I grow up.

I adore this.
I feel like I was there.
I wish I was.

Way to make us all look bad. Such a creative, fun Mom that takes amazing pictures and has a way with words. Of course, it does help that the subject matter you have to work with is absolutely breathtaking.

Celeste said...

What a cute party! And Lillie is getting cuter by the day... even without the hair :)

Lillie said...

Oh and one more... do we have the same table? Did I already know that?

Dee said...

A very merry up birthday to all.

Missy said...
