{pretty, happy, funny, real}

The girls shared some of their wall stickers with Cupcake and prettified her changing space. She loves talking to the butterfly while getting a fresh, clean diaper. Except at 4am, when according to Sean, Ms. Butterfly committed some grievous offense and needed a talkin' to!

Happy girls in headbands! Yes, they are still trying to accessorize her!

7 year old BigBoy: "Hey Mom, my mug looks like a mosaic!"
Later on at golf lessons, after hitting a 75 yarder with his driver: "I hope NASA finds that one!"

BTW... we don't normally give in to such marshmallow madness but for the first cocoa of the year, we couldn't resist!

Babies spit... a lot!

  1. I can't even tell you how much I love the pictures of your older girls with the baby!
    I was 14 when the oldest of my little sisters was born (she's really the only one I ever lived with) and the pictures remind me of those times. We were buddies and just adored each other - even still she has such a special place in my heart and I miss her desperately.
    What a precious time for your whole family, with this little blessing!

    (Also, my kids went crazy when they saw your marshmallow madness cocoa! I might have to seek some of that out for a surprise this winter!)

  2. It cannot be that cupcake is that big already! She just arrived!

    Beautiful pictures of the kids.

  3. She's growing so fast trying to catch up to the big kids! She's two months old and almost 10.5 pounds!

  4. Andrea,
    I think Marshmallow Madness would be a perfect way to toast the arrival of a new baby brother! ; )

  5. We had our first cocoa of the season yesterday, too. Only I didn't have any marshmallows.:( I love all that baby loving.:) Your girls looks SO happy!

  6. Love, love those girlie shots!

  7. Adorable! I so enjoyed your blog entry.

  8. Beautiful shots of the girls and cupcake!

  9. Awww! She is SO precious. I love seeing your pictures Charlotte. Beautiful!

  10. Your big girls look absolutely delighted with their baby sister - it's lovely to see!
    And not only did you give them a lovable little sister, but hot chocolate with colorful marshmallows? You must be a very cool mom.
