Favorite Photo Friday

N is for "No!"

Which is exactly what Ana is telling me in the bottom photo!
These were taken back in April. It was way too quiet. I knew she was up to something. I walked into the dining room and didn't see her immediately, but heard a little tap, tap, tapping behind the laptop. I peeked under the table and sure enough, there were two tiny feet hanging down from the seat. I tiptoed out and grabbed my camera before she knew she was caught. After taking the first picture, I veered around the side of the laptop screen and as soon as she saw me, she yelled, "NO!". I'm thinking, "Isn't that what I'm supposed to be saying?!"

Isabelle Ruth is Here!

I have a new niece!

Her name is Isabelle Ruth, isn't she gorgeous?!

My sister went into labor early this morning and by 11:00am she was starting to push. She was AMAZING, I was so proud of how hard she worked! The poor girl pushed for 2 long hard hours but the baby just refused to move so she ended up having a C-section at around 2:00 this afternoon. Isabelle weighed in at 8 pounds, 9 ounces and was 19 1/2 inches long. She has peach fuzz for hair that is a little reddish in color just like her cousin Ian, but the consensus is she looks just like her daddy!

Happy Birthday Liliana!

My sweet Ana
You are two years old today!

We celebrated by:

taking daddy to the doctor for neck spasms, poor daddy!

playing nicely with cousin Stevie, hooray!
unlike yesterday when you did this to him:

having black bean soup for lunch

sucking down too many servings of juice,
how could I tell you no on your birthday?

getting some positive attention from your brother,
so nice for mummy too!

playing with a special balloon picked out especially by Ian

wearing your favorite pair of mismatched shoes,
but what's new?

watching Ian decorate your birthday cake
and stealing some frosting

getting a visit and squishy face kiss from Nannie and Papa!

eating pizza for dinner

getting help from brother to blow out your candle

eating cake and ice cream
(Ian was so proud of his creation!)

Getting a few extra minutes of cuddle time before bed.
Okay, this was more for mummy I think;
you never know how long you will be willing to cuddle
so I'll take all I can get right now!

Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!
Mummy, Daddy and Ian love you very much!
