P52 - Week 2 "Youngest"


A picture a week. I'm already a week late....but here it is. 
The theme is "eldest". 
I'm doing this with my sister in law, Robynn. I'm hoping to be inspired to pick up my camera again and shoot. Feel free to join us! 

I want to link to her site but can't find it....

A few from Florida

We had nice warm weather this year. The older kids spend a ton of time playing at the beach volleyball court. I barely saw Liam all week,  I think its most of the kids best week of their year.

Really? She's 2? How did this happen?
She is still very much our little baby. Hard not to be when you still wear 6-12 month clothes.
How did we ever live without you our sweet baby girl?

Here goes my list about Isla so I remember her at 2:

She refuses to call Liam Liam, he is Dubby.
She loves to swing and would swing all day if i didn't take her out.
She hangs on anything she can - the counter, the pews at church, back of chairs, anything hangable.
She eats about 4 times as much as Liam.
She loves her big baby and "bita baby".
No matter what I do, her hair always seems to be in a crazy mess.
She's fearless, except when Liam chases her around roaring at her.
She never. stops. running.
She insistent on a kiss and a "oh a hug" before anyone in our family leaves to go somewhere or before bed.
She can not get enough of "Elmo mo mo mok", aka "Elmo's got the moves".
She says thank you a lot on her own accord.

You are a dream come true sweet girl. We love you!!

Your 6 now.
You're very active.
You're more handsome than I ever imagined a boy to be.
You love yogurt, granola and blueberries.
You're an incredible brother.
You rarely flush the toilet.
You're strong and oh so fast.
You still whine a lot, but so do I.
You're complex.
You talk a lot and still say your r's funny.
You love people.
You still sleep with baba.
You are a treasure to us.

I don't remember quite what it feels like to not have you now.
You are so very loved my boy. Happy Birthday!

p.s. We've got a surprise trip to Great Wolf Lodge coming up with your good buddy Gavin on Friday.

Thanks for the insightful comments on my post. Some of my favorites had to do with moms competing with each other and in turn losing unity. I'm sure that this is key to truly loving each other.  It was lovely to hear all your thoughts and to know we all face these similar struggles.

I'm not sure if I conveyed my thoughts the way I wanted to, but as my counselor husband reminded me, it's ok to be misunderstood". So enough about me, the winner is...

Lindsey!! A soon to be Mom. All the best as you navigate this journey of being a mom.
I will contact you through e-mail.

Well, that was fun! I'll be looking into doing more giveaways. Lots of ideas swirling in my head surrounding this blog. Stay tuned :)
