Fairy's New Bling

Check out Fairy's new bling... and no I don't mean the crazy earrings (although those are new too). Yesterday, Fairy got some serious ortho gear installed... braces and an expander. Ouch! She has a cross bite that needs to be fixed and needs space for some of her new teeth to come in.

She was quite the trooper and thought it was great fun to pick out the colors of her bands. Now her smile is as sparkly as she is. She did pretty well last night but woke up very sore.

Thank you Gammy for bringing over a Mango smoothy for breakfast! She wasn't able to eat anything else when she got up. I think there will be a lot of ice cream this weekend as she adjusts to them.Read more

Have a lovely weekend ~ Kimara and MichelleRead more

Quietly Playing

You know that quiet play that as a parent you hate to interrupt because your intrusion, even just for a moment, can break the spell of wonderful imaginative play? Of course this same quiet can also mean total chaos is going on, but the little imps are being sneaky enough to pull it off, so sometimes you can't help but poke your head in. Well, when I was making dinner a couple nights ago and the older two were playing outside with Daddy, Pixie was in one of these quiet play moments. I only intruded because I needed to take a load of laundry upstairs and found...
 

Her quiet play fell somewhere between that deliciously imaginative and OMgoodness chaos! Every, single stuffy in the house was piled up at the bottom of the stairs, apparently each awaiting their turn to be seated neatly, and orderly on the steps. I wove my way carefully upstairs with the laundry basket not disturbing a single one but the spell was broken. When I came back down she had gone outside. About 20 trips up and down the steps later order had been restored......Read more

Eight Years and Two Days

At eight years and two days old... Bug finally lost his first tooth. An event we weren't sure was ever going to happen... although our dentist assured us his x-rays look great and the adult teeth would at some point show themselves. I guess it stands to reason that it took so long for his adult teeth to start coming... since he was 14 months old before cutting his first tooth. Every nursing mom's dream ;). Between the birthday and the tooth I guess this means my baby is officially a big kid now.Read more
