Changing your name

@oliverjeffers books were a huge hit for was her toy penguin

This photo is an oldie but goodie. :)

The other day Paige was curious about why I used to have a different last name (I'd changed it when I got married like many women do). I explained this all to her as best I could so her four-year old mind could follow along. After thinking about it for a minute she lit up with so much excitement and said "When I marry Daddy, my name will be 'Paige Daddy!'"

Her eyes sparkled and twinkled with the idea.

And then I about died from the cuteness.

I love you card

Does saying "I love you" in French make it mean more? You know, you don't have to wait for an anniversary or Valentine's Day to write a sweet note for your loved one. Sometimes they need a pick-me-up or reminder at other various times too.

Chris often brings me flowers, or he leaves me cute notes on my "to do" lists, or sends me loving emails. I especially love when he brings me home a Snickers bar at the end of the day because he knows it's my favorite and it's been "that kind of day." I need to do more sweet things for him. Hmmm.

This card is for sale in my shop. I hope you've had a great weekend!

2013 Preschool Concert

#preschool #concert #cute #me&wee
(note the lobster cute!)

Paige had her preschool concert yesterday and it was filled with cuteness. This is what it's all about.
She was front and center and did a great job! She was so excited to see us in the audience she kept pointing to us and yelling "I TOLD you Mommy and Daddy would be here!!!" Everyone chuckled. I felt my heart bursting with pride during that show. It's so great to see your little one flourish.
A nice woman in front of us told us about how Paige, in the morning concert, helped her little friend up who was sitting on the floor and afraid to sing in front of the group. They said she reached down and consoled her; patting her, and helped her up. Isn't that sweet? They complimented us on how sweet Paige is and it was my first experience seeing Paige through someone else's eyes. Very cool! (We made sure to praise her profusely later that night).

16 months

Dear Noah,

I'm sorry I pretty much missed your 16 month post! It's already less than 2 weeks until you are 17 months. Boo. It's been busy around here and I just haven't made the time. sigh.
You know, your 16 month time is pretty much the same as your 15 month time! No real changes have gone on except you've been playing with and idolizing on your sister more and more. I want you two to be good friends and it warms my heart to see you both together.

Today I was rocking you down for your nap and you put your head down on my chest. You were so warm and heavy in your sleep sack while I felt your soft cheek on my skin. I just closed my eyes and listened to you take each steady breath; I could hear the whisper of your baby voice with each one. So sweet. It's the little reminders just like that...I'm so lucky to be a mom. Your Mom.
I love you always and forever,

P.S. Here's a little video of you and your sister making the kind of fun you make during meal times. I couldn't figure out how to rotate the movie/you tube isn't cooperating. But you'll get the gist!
