Precious in Baby Janet’s shirt

Sunday, July 22nd, 2012

Stella is just the right size now to wear this sweet little shirt that was a gift from (great) Grandma Rosie. A shirt that Grandma Jan wore as a baby!

Here she is wearing it around the house and out at the zoo this morning…

Reading Rivalry

Friday, July 20th, 2012

Stella is getting really into “reading” these days, so we are digging out all the old board books that Lucas has gotten bored of. And Brown Bear is by far her favorite. She love love loves this book.

So of course, Lucas has also now decided that this is his favorite book again. But now he can read it himself….

Happy 1st Birthday Stella!

Monday, July 16th, 2012

Last weekend we celebrated Stella’s first birthday, hard to believe that it’s already here!

We had a fun family birthday for her on Sunday, with cupcakes and singing…


It was hot hot hot last weekend, so we had a lot of popsicles, which Stella LOVES

And had her first visit to a splash park, also a BIG FAN.  People were laughing out loud at how adventurous she was with the fountains.  She would walk up and just stick her face right down in the water and come up laughing.  Big fun.

On Saturday we hosted a pot-luck brunch with lots of food, good friends, some Stella inspired mimosas (which she didn’t partake in) and some cupcakes (which she did).

She got some new toys, which she loves!

But is also equally thrilled with the bathroom sink….go figure.

Fun in the park

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

Enjoying an afternoon in the park. Hot, but not as bad as last week during the heat wave. And that breeze when in the swings is oh so good!


Happy 4th!

Well, not the greatest photo, but getting these two to sit still for more than 2 seconds is nearly impossible.  Happy 4th of July! (or America’s birthday as Lucas is calling it).

We had a fun fun weekend in Houston, for Pat and Lori’s wedding on May 18th.  We stayed at the Magnolia Hotel downtown, very nice.  Here are a few photos of the weekend.  More pics (with captions) are on the photos page.
