Sidewalk Painting

I'm officially off work all summer and to celebrate we broke out the sidewalk paint! Tons of fun and best of all- good pics!

5 Months Old!

Our little Claire is now 5 months old! She had her 1st few bites of rice cereal yesterday and did pretty well. She now has no interest in playing on her back and either wants to be sitting (with help) or standing. She loves grabbing and reaching for things...I have a feeling she is going to be running around this place sooner rather than later. The most recent nick names that we have for Claire would include 'our little peanut', 'Claire-Z' and my favorite 'pumpkin' as she is still rockin' her red hair!

Happy 3rd Birthday Layna!

Amongst all of the wedding excitment..our little girl turned 3!! She now enjoys hearing the story of when she was born and as I tell it- I can hardly believe that it has been three years!

Dear Laynabug:

We have LOVED watching you grow and learn this past year. Seeing the world through your eyes has been pure joy. You have learned new phrases and words like 'Actually...' and 'Hang on just one minute..' You have fallen in love with every thing PRINCESS and most of all you have been a wonderful BIG SISTER to Claire-Z. We love you even more than the day we brought you home and cant wait to experience who you will become this next year. We love you!

Mommy and her girls


We had a great time celebrating Mothers Day as well as Karl's 29th birthday. Karl had hosted Brad's bachelor party the night before so needless to say- everyone was a bit tired. I'm the luckiest mom in the world- blessed with a wonderful husband and two beautiful girls!

Mother's Day Tea

Grandma Fry, Grandma Z and Claire
At the Mother's Day Tea

Last Friday evening- my mom, Layna and I attended a 'Mothers Day Tea' with Grandma Fry out at Breeze Park. It was a great event although the entertainment for the evening was a comedian who did a program called 'Cooking with Marge'. She was dressed up, working the crowd and talking in a loud, raspy voice. Bottom Line- Layna was SCARED! Her and I had to 'run far far away from that scary lady' for most of the night. We wondered the facility until the very end of the program when 'Marge' was finished. They gave away flowers to the oldest and youngest mothers in attendance. I miss being the youngest mom by 1 year! BUMMER! Overall- we had a great time. I feel very blessed that my grandparents now live in St. Louis and are able to see my girls growing up!
