her royal chubb-ness

our chubbiest tiny!!
we cannot imagine a sweeter baby!
all three of ours have been very similar babies
and we realize that subsequent babies you seem to relax and absorb differently. .
she is calm through the chaos. . and like her brother and sister as the sweetest disposition
we are having so much fun getting to get to know her tiny heart...
we are entering our favorite 'baby stage' 6-9months
we've recently started babyfood. . . she's quickly getting the hang of it!
{lillian is great...we're making a calendar today to mark off the days until her birthday
we've been baking a lot of cookies with our new princess cookie cutters from uncle neal & soon-to-be aunt sara{{xoxox}}!! and we've been spending the first part of roomtime painting together}
{liam boy is awesome....starting to say everything..and very interested in the potty! oh boy!! he's still sleeps like a bear in hibernation. you'd see more photos of him if we could get him to hold still for more than 8 seconds!}

holy rolls!!!!

fit for a princess. . . or two

high tea for two..or as these two call it....
elle bean was here today and the girls had a 'fancy' lunch
well, by fancy i mean fancy dishes....
the menu
hotdogs with ketsup 'dippies'
sliced cucumbers with ranch 'dippies'
blueberries & strawberries
chocolate milk
and a yogurt squeeze for dessert
these 2 are peas in a pod. . . bff
they boss each other around like little mommies...
they are both firstborn girls would you expect anything less!!
today was a 'pause' moment
watching these two
sweet bean. . i caught her mid-chew

oh to be tiny again and have a 'fancy' lunch with your best friend!

its the simplest things that make life the sweetest

these two made our afternoon! their uninhibited joy and love for one another is priceless

cheers to the bean & the bug!

the bug, the boy & tiny

maybe we should have named our kids names that have more syllabels
we have affectionately fallen into that category naming our kids with all the same first letter...and a sweet nickname
so here's to being the predictable cheesy parent that we said we'd NEVER become!
my fiesty-firey-passionate-drama-PRINCESS
she reminds me often that she is not a 'queen' she is not big enough yet to be a queen
mommy is a queen, she is still just a tiny princess; or tiny mommy to her younger siblings
our gigi likes to call this 'wild woman hair'
even though the rolls are evidence that she's really not that tiny..
she's still our tiny 'birdie'

'the boy'
this one speaks for itself

taylor man was here over new years to wrestle with our three! out for a change of scenery & a wagon ride at yaya & roos
lucy looks terrified that she's in liam's lap!!

all my tinys!!
