Photos not required

Anton took a late nap today because my gracious self took EJ to get his allergy shots for his father. (It benefitted me greatly so I was happy to do it.) So needless to say Anton woke up kind of grumpy after only about an hour worth of nap.  Well I was in the kitchen making dinner and Tony laid down in the living room.  Next thing I know it’s quiet.  Abby’s on the laptop playing games, but where’s the boy?  I walk out and he is passed out next to his father.

Meanwhile Abby finishes playing on the laptop and comes in to the kitchen and I tell her to go get her father.

So a few minutes pass and I call out that dinner is ready.

Yeah, well this is where having a picture would have been perfect.

Abby crawled in-between where Tony and Anton were sleeping and passed out.

Tony’s naps are contagious.

We went out to dinner tonight to celebrate several things including EJ’s awesome report card.   In the larger stall in the bathroom the baby changing table is above the toilet.  Abby’s asked what it is and I tell her that it’s for changing baby diapers.

Abby: And big girl diapers?

Mommy: No honey, big girls don’t need their diapers changed.  They go in the potty.

Abby: No I want my diaper changed.

Mommy: But you don’t wear diapers anymore.

Abby: But I wanna be a diaper.

Mommy, Um, okay dear.

Abby: Yay! I’m a (insert growly voice here) diaper monster, grrrrrr! (Insert monster claws and dancing)

The Cake

It’s the Birthday Girls

img_2447

request to have a butterfly cake with colors on it like a rainbow.  How could I deny?  But how do you make a butterfly cake?  Well first you need a round cake, I chose to use two this year.

img_2494

Any type of cake will do.  I made Crazy Cake, it’s vegan.  First you set them on top of each other.

img_2495

Then you cut them in half and switch the half’s.  Does it look like a butterfly?

img_2497

How about now?

How about now?

Sorry I didn’t get any pictures of the frosting in progress.  It is simple.  Lots of icing tubes and I use the easy flow frosting in a can with the built in decorating tips because it is dairy free unlike the tubes of frosting.  The one issue of making this cake is…

it doesn’t fit in a standard lidded cake plate.  But I think everyone enjoyed it.

Anton even gave a kiss.

Baby Girl

Today my baby girl is 4.  Where has the time gone?

img_769

I still remember that first week home because of the weather.

img_0796

She spent that first week in sleeveless onesies because it was in the 80’s.  She was such a content baby, so easy to please.

img_0837

She started sleeping though the night at 8 weeks! Which was truly nice since I went back to work at 9 weeks.

She’s always been Miss Independent.

But then again she stopped napping when I brought her younger brother home.

img_2501

She is a blessing.

img_2896

She loves pretty dresses, but she also loves to get dirty.

img_2908

She looks at me with total trust, but also knows how to ignore me.

She is the apple of her Daddy’s eye, but can also be a thorn in his side.

img_0087

She loves to sing, dance, and make music.

Last year I made her a butterfly cake; she’s been talking about it for months now.  About how for her next birthday she’s going to have a butterfly cake with colors on it just like a rainbow.

She is my beautiful butterfly.

Happy Birthday Baby Girl.
