What I've been up to lately, in pictures

I've been a bit busy lately, and instead of writing about it, I thought I'd share some fun pictures. Thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes and to my husband for the sweet post. You guys sure know how to make a girl feel special! Here is how I've been spending my time:

Loving on these two adorable littles:

Finding ways to keep cool:

Loosing sleep, thanks to this little guy in my little guy's mouth:

Being amazed at how big this little guys is getting. He got his first tooth and took his first steps on the same day:

Laughing at the antics of my favourite girl:

Planning and pulling off (with the help of two amazing grandmas) a double birthday party. We rented a gym at our local rec centre and had 1 hour of play time, followed by food and, of course, CAKE!

I wish I could say this little creation was mine... I have some majorly talented friends. And she doesn't even do this as a living! Thanks Jyh Yi! Everyone LOVED the cakes.

SWAG at your own risk...


Hmmmmm, what do I do with this?

If he could talk, he would have probably said, "THAT. WAS. AWESOME!!!!!"

Total cuties.

Sweet birthday girl...

And because I didn't have too much to do, plus I'm a little bit crazy, here are the signs I made up for the birthday grub.

It has been a great, albeit CRAZY couple of weeks! And it's only the beginning. Next week Elise starts school, we have an endo appointment, a gymnastics class, TWO well-child visits, and birthday cupcakes need to be made for her classroom birthday celebration.

I think I need another spa day!
