the BEST baby toy EVER!

so i just wanted to share with everyone the best baby toy ever! all 4 of my kids LOVE to look at and read books. like everyone else out there as babies i gave them the cardoard books because clearly the paper ones will just be torn to shreds and consumed...while that is fiber it's gross. even still the cardboard ones while they do not tear they eventually do it get eaten it just takes a little more time. and the they just look icky! and your baby again has ome more fiber.

so the what is the best baby toy ever? well as you may have guessed it has to do with books...i found these at target and bought them for my youngest, and then after she tried everything she could to tear,eat,dissolve,rip,eat the books she couldn't and she LOVES the pictures and wonderful colors (and they are washable)! i have now also bought them as baby shower gifts and i tell everyone about them!

man am i bad at blogging or what!

I said when I started this blog up again that I would be a good blog mommy but alas here I am hardly ever posting! Not that a ton of people read this but I would *love* for a ton of people to read this!

So school has once again begun and our oldest is in the 2nd grade...I am pretty sure he was just a little guy trying to toddle around our house...but no that was several years ago. Our youngest 3 are still home with least for a few more years.
Currently I am planning our baby"s 1st birthday party. I can not believe she is going to be 1 seriously where does that 1st year go!? I am so excited about her party the theme is a mix of vintage/parisian/pink and black goodness! Hopefully it will all turn out like I see it in my head! I have been busy making decorations and favors and other stuff. I do need to work on her 1st year album I am be*hind on that I think I have like 300 pictures to print and scrap! Oy!

I have been busy all summer with my 4 wonderful (sometimes) one for a few months (babysitting for a friend)...but now that's all over except my kids of course. The next fun thing I have coming up is a trip to nyc to take my sister in laws maternity pictures! My sister and my youngest will being going with...I am so excited! Plus I will get to do lucy's 11 month pictures there which I will be using for her bday invites.

So that's what's happening around my about yours? What did you do all summer?

so i found these pictures the other day from last month...i had forgotten about them. this was before ethan gave up his day i put him in his bed and told him to go to sleep, and i left the room. a little bit later i went back in to make sure he was in his bed and sleeping...well he was not in bed but i heard snoring so i looked up in isaac's bed...not there...looked in the closet...not there...looked under ethan's bed...aha there he is, along with like a billion toys....and this is what it looked like...

and i left him there to sleep.

new but not new...

okay so i had a blog a couple of years ago and...well... let's just say i was a bad blog mommy...i did not post very often, or keep up with it.

so i am starting *fresh* ....i will try and be a good mommy to my blog, and keep up with it!

and since lots of people really only care about the pictures on a blog and may not always read my blah blah blah...

and most of you who might read this have already seen this picture, but it's spring break now and it feels like a beach kind of week...

this is emma last march.
