What a Hoot!

So I definitely didn't win in the picture department with Addy's second birthday party.  It was hot and sticky and there was much fun to be had, so please excuse the fact that I didn't corral all of the kiddos for a shot together.  At the end of the day, it wasn't about the balloons or the favors or the pinata stuffing  or how many pictures I took...it was about enjoying her "birfday party."  Don't get me wrong, those things are more important this year than they were last year, but would she miss them if they weren't there?  I think not.  I just love any chance to watch her eyes light up at the sight of balloons.  I love that she knows, or at least someday will know, that I can't imagine not taking time on little things like tissue paper flowers for her. 

Owl treat bags filled with gummy worms (yes, I know real owls tend to favor mice).  I finally got to use some of the pretty cardstock I had in the craft bin...

Girlfriend got some pretty great gifts.  Her current favorites are the water activity table, a baby doll, a doctor kit, a lady bug that projects stars on the ceiling, a tutu, new books for bedtime, and this... 

her very own little purple guitar, which is actually a real ukulele.  She was pretty excited to have a guitar like daa-daa's.

To prevent Jason from being the next dad hit you-know-where and starring on an episode of America's Funniest Home Videos, we got a super cute pull string pinata. 


Here's the loot!

She wasn't quite sure what to make of everyone singing to her.

But that didn't stop her from blowing out the candles on her cake...


We had a "hoot" :)

Quick Cohen update...went to the doctor today for my 36 week appointment.  I'm 1 cm dilated.  I go next week for an ultrasound to pinpoint his position and then for my next weekly appointment.  He'll be here before we know it!
