Princess P

On April 9th (yes I realize I am a bit late), my baby turned 2.  She is officially no longer a baby.  This is the first time in a looong time that I am without an infant and I must say, it is quite depressing! :(  But enough about me - on to Princess P! :)  She experienced her first breakfast in bed which she loved once she realized she wasn't in trouble.  Lol.  The little stinker woke up before me (5:45am!) and about had heart failure when I told her she had to get back in bed.
Look at that little cheeser! 
As per our tradition, I took her out to lunch at Micky D's for some quality mommy and me time. :) 
After we returned home, it was into the birthday tutu set I made her and off to the park to snap some pictures!  She LOVED strutting her cute lil self all over the place while waving, shouting, and blowing kisses at all the onlookers. :)  What a ham!
It's a bit hard to shop for a 4th child birthday girl.  There isn't much she hasn't already inherited from her older siblings.. but alas, like any typical 2 year old, she was more into tearing paper than toys so it worked out just splendidly!  The push popper was a source of intense jealousy for Sir L, but the little princess held to her guns and staked her claim on it.  Suddenly it became her favorite toy as she pushed it in circles around her older brother! :P
Two years old marks a very special milestone here in our condominium, where you can enter all the classes offered at the main club.  This meant new *adorable* swim and ballet clothes, and one teary eyed, proud mama!  When did she get so big?!
And just for smiles and giggles, here's a short clip of the little prima ballerina :)

This little munchkin brings our family so many laughs and provides such great stories to tell!  It's hard to remember what life was like without her!  Happy (belated) birthday little worm!  I LOVE YOU!!! :)



Instagram is making me a lazy blogger, and an absentee photographer.  It makes it a little too easy to snap a quick pic on the iPhone and post it for all the world to see with a mere half caption and vuala, you're done!  It is both wonderful and horrible at the same time.  I get it, I do.  Pictures are worth a thousand words right?  But sometimes a thousand words can be fun to read.. just sayin'.

Yesterday I went to B & H's school to have some fun mommy and me time in celebration of Mother's Day.  It was adorable and SO much fun to spend some great quality time with them in their classrooms.  They presented me with "classmade" gifts and plenty of hugs and kisses.  Made my week! :)
Princess P had a nasty 103.6 fever the other day.  B decided to stay with her until she fell asleep.. can you say precious?!  I love these sweet sister moments!
Speaking of growing up, check out the new jack-o-lantern in our little clan!  I swear this girl looses a new tooth every week!
I have a love-hate relationship with technology.  LOVE it until it takes away too much of our precious time to actually interact with one another.. not cool.  We took matters into our own hands and made a family game of "Angry Fruit" to stick it to the man. :)  *Highly recommended!
The many faces of Angry Birds success and concentration:
With B & H off to school, L & P get a nice paint filled morning with mom.  Call me biased, but these little artists are just ADORABLE!!!
Cat vs. peacock.  The Throwdown: Talk smack. Analyze beak potential. Settle for leftovers. Poor kitty!  That must have been some amazing cat food..
"Fresh" honey takes on a whole new meaning.. The irony!
Proof of the nastiest mosquito bite I've ever seen!  What kind of possessed creature would bite a poor girl on the nose?!  It looked broken for almost 2 weeks! :(
Another "need to update": my new craft room!!!
One tuckered out little boy!  Is that not the CUTEST sleeping pose you have ever seen?!
Princess P's first haircut. Courtesy of yours truly :)
My first attempt at homemade cheesecake?  SUCCESS!!! :)
All of these little tidbits of information.  Do they make it easier or harder?  I must admit, I am conflicted.. but whatever the prognosis, I am glad to have the memories! :)
