So Daisy’s real birthday present from us was a big girl bed. I found a purple daisy quilt!! I’ve honestly been looking for one since she was born. I finally found THE ONE. It was from Pottery Barn, and more than I wold typically spend on a little girl’s quilt, but it was perfect, so I splurged.
The girls got matching headboards.
I hung two of Brinlee’s dance costumes above their beds.
They also got a brand new dresser to go in their big girl room. They had been sharing the bedroom at the end of the hall, and the boys were in this room, so this was a huge bedroom shuffle. We moved the boys down to the basement bedrooms, which I will reveal in another post. Georgia finally moved out of my closet into the room Daisy and Brinlee were sharing before.
Nana Sharon gave Daisy these name letters when she was born, and I’ve been saving them. They are finally up and perfect!
This was the big reveal of their new room and Daisy’s new big girl bed!
They loved it!

Another creative Kimball outfit. Batman as a firefighting pirate.
Daisy and Georgia love each other.
The kids love to get in baby jail and play with her.
Someone is always climbing in.
Making use of those roller skates and our basketball court.
Georgia sits like this and cries like a prisoner when she is done with her nap.

My sweet baby is getting teeth! I’ve never had one get teeth before their first birthday. I was completely shocked!
Georgia’s first Easter hunt.
Daisy cleaning up.
Caisen is a pro by now.
Kimball has learned he has to be fast to get the best eggs.
Sawyer decided to take a shortcut up the rocks instead of around.
There’s my nugget!
She couldn’t be any cuter.
A secret glimpse into the basement. The wood floors just got installed.
Sawyer loves to shake his bum at people.
Adam and his parents took the kids to the zoo.
Peas are so tasty!
So is she!
These two are always together.
Adam and I celebrated our 11th anniversary.
It was my year to plan, so I took him shooting at a gun range. I never so much as spoke a word, made a phone call, emailed, googled or texted this plan. That morning he asked what he should wear, and I said comfortable and casual. He said, “Are we going shooting?” How does he do this? He reads my mind all the time! It is so irritating. See those bullet holes in the chest? Those are mine. I rocked that poster.
We had a good time. We were going to go to dinner as well, but our sitter bailed. Adam suggested putting the kids to bed and getting take out, but we decided to take them with us.
We chose something more family friendly.
Nothing like a little tepenyaki for family entertainment.
Enjoying the appetizers before the show.
Caisen stuffing his face with sushi.
Daisy following right behind him.
When the chef started tossing food into people’s mouths, he was dead on. All you had to do was open your mouth and stay still. And everyone did. Everyone but Sawyer. He moved every time. He got chicken on the cheek, the chin, nose, ear, eye, everywhere but his mouth. It got to a point where it was so ridiculous that the chef wasn’t even trying, he was just pelting Sawyer with food. Everyone was laughing so hard, especially Sawyer. Even the tables around us were laughing. It was the best part of the night.
And then he used a little boy peeing his pants bottle to put out the fire on his griddle. What?
We had a great dinner and a great time.
Then we went for ice cream cookie sandwiches and cones for dessert.
A little more eye candy.
Daisy all dressed up for dance. She got this purple sparkly tutu from grandma.
Sassy little ballerina
Sassy and sweet
I love when I find my kids like this. Caisen reading to his little sister.
And Georgia has discovered stairs. *Sigh* Time for gates.
