Ava said.." mama I need a policeman! I have emergency!". What Ava? " yeah my undies are in my tushy.. Big emergency.."

Jacks favorite thing to say lately is ... "silly goofy"....translation..
Silly goosey!!!

birthday girl

can't believe a wholel year has gone by! 
can believe it was only a year ago that i birthed you into this world with confidence and overwhelming peace. 

my sweet firefly,
this year has flown by.. filled with sleepless nights and crazy days.. 
 filled with snuggles and kisses and laughter.
and peace. deep down in my heart. underneath everything else.. peace.

ella you love to scoot around and peer around corners.. love to collect guys and put them in and out of containers.. love to hold ands and dance.....laugh at your sister and brother.. love to chatter on and on.. your right leg is always toe dancing... you nurse around the clock and only eat pretzels.. watermelon and maybe some pasta... 
love to be worn in the beco baby wrap... and sleep in our bed.
peek a boo is your favorite game. 

ella my peaceful warrior girl.. my our God bind your heart to his.... 
happy birthday ella victory.

Potty break

Well Ava.. After months of verbal preparation...( pretty soon.. No more dipes!)
You woke up.. Wanted undies on.. And we are on day 2 of no accidents!!

We've been learning that boys have a penis and girls have vaginas...

This am I was trimming your hair Ava, and you broke into real sad tears.. Why?

" because I don't want a penis mama.."

Don't worry Ava.... Your "' Ginna" is safe.. Haircuts are harmless.

Ava loves to look at bees...
Today in the garden we found a bees nest... Ava was mesmerized..
"oh oh oh the bees are so so beautiful ( beuuuuful) but why do they bite? Oh I know mama.. They have no glory....

I just wanna slow down... Want to stop time and pour it in a bottle.
Our days have been filled with
day trips to dog truck...

Starbucks then the boardwalk.

Grilling and sandbox and slide and laughing

Adventures with daddy.. Coming home with new flashlights and princess bags and matchbox cars & fench fries..

The babies go into the bath smelling like sunblock and ocean and dirt and come out sweetly sleepy smelling like lavender.
