Breaking News

I mean, if you consider "breaking" to be last Sunday, since this post has sat unfinished since then. Sigh. 

I am so traumatized. She's totally fine. 
So hard to get a good pic! Sorry this is a little graphic.

We noticed it was loose on Saturday after an epic meltdown. Bub the hub wanted to pull it but I just couldn't let him. I've so been dreading this milestone because I am truly worried she might choke on a tooth, like in the middle of the night or some other time we are not with her. After she calmed down, she seemed to think it was pretty funny. Couldn't keep her tongue off of it, of course.

I was watching it like a hawk, as you can imagine. It came out at lunch on Sunday and it was hubby who noticed first. Just disappeared! Tooth fairy a little disappointed. Avery gave no signs of noticing at all, very giggly actually. Glad the first one is done, but still nervous about the rest! Love her little toothless grin though :)

Birthday Girl

Sorry to leave y'all hangin! Maddie's birthday and party were wonderful! So much to share, it will probably take me about 4 posts. My newly three year old got her traditional wake-up balloons and happy birthday singing. We had a fun playground visit in the morning and went to the pool in the afternoon. Spoiled with presents all day, blew out her three pink candles after dinner, and went to bed very late! You know, just a perfect day for Maddie Brynn.

Happy morning birthday girl

While Friday was pretty magical, it's hard to beat the moment when Cinderella showed up at her birthday party the next day.

She's spotted!


And then totally attached at the hip from there!

Doesn't it just make your heart smile??
More soon!

Gettin' Ready

Things are a little crazy this week as we get ready to celebrate the THIRD birthday of this little lovely.

And what a wonderful and amazing three years it has been, Maddie Brynn. 

A couple of months ago, I started asking her what kind of birthday party she wanted to have. The answer every time was Cinderella! Not surprising considering she plays dress-up in her Cinderella dress pretty much every day, but I gave her lots of other choices too. She never wavered! So Cinderella it is. And it would be a huge understatement to say this girl is READY for her party. She talks about it all of the time. Almost every night for the last couple of months, while getting ready for bed, she starts sentences with, "Tomorrow, at my birthday/Cinderella party...". We corrected her for awhile and then just finally gave up! The concept of time is a hard thing to explain to a two year old, and patience is nonexistent. 

Her actual birthday is Friday and the party is Saturday, so count on lots and lots of pics! She's not even going to believe it when she wakes up Friday and it actually IS her birthday, lol. We can't wait to celebrate this kind, loving, smart, beautiful princess.

We Got Away

This past weekend, Bub the hub and I had a night away. For the first time in six and a half years! It's kind of a big deal. A very special thanks goes to my mom, Nana, who was instrumental in this endeavor. We also have a new helper named Angela, who is great with Avery, and who also made this night possible. 

We just so happened to be celebrating my 32nd birthday. I know what you are thinking... I look way too young to be that old, right? I know, it's weird. True, though. 

So, we basically stayed at a hotel across the street... about 4 minutes away, I would say. But it still counts! And the girls did awesome, which is the best part. I also did really relax for a little while, which I wasn't sure I'd be able to do! More special thanks goes to my wonderful dad, who treated me to spa services! I'm a lucky girl.

I also had a nice dinner out with good friends and a fun night of friendly poker to top it off. I played poker in our hotel room in the hotel robe and slippers, by the way. Super comfy.

It was a lovely weekend all the way around. Thanks be to Bub the hub for that :).
