birthday tutu

We had a big birthday bash for Alaina and her two buddies a couple of weekends ago, which is the reason she has a birthday tutu. I'm waiting for some professional photes so I can blog about it. I didn't even have my camera with me. Big woops.

Since 007 is out saving the world right now, Graham and I celebrated Alaina's true birthday by making her a strawberry-banana cake.

I celebrated the day I gave birth by having a few good girlfriends over to eat cake with me once I put the kids to bed.

It was perfect. 

While we were eating Alaina's birthday dinner, I asked Graham to tell me something he loves about Alaina.

His response: "I like when she plays with me."

Then he asked me to tell him something I love about Alaina.

My response: "I love when she snuggles with me."

I hope she never stops snuggling me. It truly is the best thing on Earth.


  1. "Bali-Laina". She gets her "snuggability" from her Mom. Ahhh, the memmories. And, just like you, she is blessed with a big brother/best friend. Give 'em both extra snugs&hugs from G'pa Bill.

  2. So sweet! The siblings playing together will only get better over this next year. As I type this, the boys are under the table "hiding in a cave". The Dr. Seuss party looked like a lot of fun!

  3. Snuggles truly are the best! I can't believe she's one already...time flies! I'm so curious if Marlow's hair looks like this in a year - so cute!!
