Just a little update from our little family. We had such a nice weekend, I thought I’d share!
We started out with the babies much delayed Bubble Guppies Birthday party. Having Christmas birthdays is such a tough thing and I haven’t quite settled on the best way to navigate this. A week earlier is Dan’s birthday, so that makes an early party tough. We’ve considered celebrating summer “half birthdays” but that doesn’t sit right either. It’s tough for them to have to share a birthday – and then it be right on top of the holiday. But despite, we thought we’d celebrate this year in February once all the other business and seasonal flu had cleared and we could focus our attention on throwing a fun party. We’ll be doing a whole post about our party details, but here’s a sneak preview!
- Julie got a new princess dress – with “uh-punul” (Rapunzel) on it. She is so stinking adorable in this dress, which Brayden likes to bring me to put on his sister. I loved seeing the look in Dan’s eyes when he came home from work and saw her wearing it (over her sleeper) for the first time. She really looks like a little girl and no longer our baby.
- I just can’t get enough of her little phrases – like “ah-hoo” which I believe is her word for “woo-hoo.” Whenever she’s having a great time or riding her Rody Horse, she’ll say “ah-hoo ah-hoo” and you know she’s having a great time. Interestingly – this is also the word she uses when pretending to sneeze.
- Finally, this little doll is loving to pretend to go to sleep – pulling the covers to her shoulders and “snoring.” I just have to smile as I have distinct memories of doing the same as a kid. I love seeing her discover and grow into this incredible little girl.
