MB is ONE!

Goodness, there is so much to say about this sweet sweet baby.
K and I like to say that she's the happiest baby ever...until she isn't.
She's been easy going since birth, but also very adamant when she doesn't like something.
She loves to laugh.  She's got a cackle and then also a sweet and flirtatious laugh when she's "feeling cute".  She LOVES to eat and I can't get it on her highchair fast enough before she's eaten it all. (Cheese is her favorite)She has the best olive complexion and golden brown hair.  Almost the opposite of her fair skinned, blonde sister.  Speaking of big sis, it's such a joy watching them together.  While this year has certainly been challenging,  MB has been the easiest baby.  I can just watch her interact with the world all day, and I really look forward to being able to be out and about with her once Coronavirus is contained.  I'll never forget this beautiful baby's first year for many reasons, and her joy has changed my life!   
We love you so much, Mary baby. 
Love, Mom.

First off, Happy Fathers Day to K!!  This is about as 'relaxing' as it gets these days.  
Are we having fun, yet!?
 Isn't this little teapot clock adorable.  I found it for $2.00 in a rummage bin!
 First ice cream truck experience.  We were playing in the sprinkler in the backyard when the music started getting closer so we ran out front to catch him on our street.  Such a SWEET moment to share with EB.
 Look at these sisters in Target.  This cart is so massive, I have to take 3 point turns.  Nothing like lugging in 2 kids to grab contact solution. 
Our neighborhood playground is OPEN!!

 We miss the library SO much these days, but I'm happy to see they are still offering the summer reading program.  We've been logging our books once a week! 
"Lean on Me"
Beep Beep!
Have a great week!

Birthdays: Blog and Baby!

Today Hominy Girl turns NINE!

I thought I would share a few things about MB's upcoming FIRST BIRTHDAY!
(Hopefully I will remember to take more pictures than I did at EB's 1st)

I am doing a watermelon theme.  I made the invitations myself and I think they turned out cute!
We are doing hamburgers, hotdogs and chips.  And watermelon of course.  I picked up these napkins from the Dollar Tree the other day.
We can't wait to celebrate this little sweetie:
Time sure does fly.  I'm so glad to have this online journal to look back on...so much has changed in nine years...for the better!
Hope y'all are having a good weekend!
