Just Shootin' the ....

Just two old friends catching up on life...so much better than reading the newspaper. Mimi kept saying "Ashton, I pee pee"...and when she was done with her business..."Ashton happy". Every time she potties, another loved one is happy and proud of her, sometimes 'Bode's happy', other times it's Grandma or Nanny and recently 'Uncle Tim is happy'.

Maryn is 23 months young today but going on 4. She can converse with me in just about complete sentences of 5-7 words, is just about daytime potty trained, can count to 10, sleeps in a big girl bed, folds the laundry, climbs in and out of her highchair and looks so adorable with a ponytail! Her 2nd birthday party is planned for 2 weeks prior to the real date because I just don't trust this little boy...I can sense his competitiveness already. I am currently consumed with all things primary colored.

Celebrating the Men in My Life

Some friends from work got together for lunch to celebrate the coming arrival of Sir Benham. It was so sweet of them to come out and show their love for little guy! I work with a great group of girls...we know how to help keep each other awake at 4am:)
Thank you for all the sweet baby gifts!

And then we celebrated daddy's 32nd birthday on Saturday with Uncle Tim and Uncle Nick. I caught him plucking gray hairs from his head that morning.
Junior Mac and Big Mac
Maryn and I took the easy route this year and bought his birthday cake....mint chocolate chip ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins! I think if Mac was asked 'what's the one thing you couldn't live without?'...his answer: mint chocolate chip ice cream.
And Maryn picked out his birthday balloon. M-I-C-K-E-Y Mouse!!!!
Happy Birthday to my best friend and greatest father! We love you more than you know!
