turning 7 this year....




this little silly girl turned 7 this spring... 7... how can it be...?
it doesn't seem so... it seems like just yesterday I was rocking her to sleep... her little legs just bent over my elbow... I would sing to her... she would hear my heart beat... and now... well I still sing to her... and she still lays her head on my chest to hear my heart beat... but those legs... ohhhh my... they are well down to my knees... I can barely cradle her but just for a bit... then we laugh...
She's still a little girl... our little girl... we think she's so fun... so full of childhood wonder... we let her be little... we don't rush her... we let her be wild... free... 
she pretty much digs her life!




so we had a party for her! a fun little whimsical party... lots of fun... lots of children... lots of squealing... face painting... nutella cake... twirlie whirlie fun filled party...
I love how our children's birthdays remind me of when I was little too... The planning... the balloons... the fun! the anticipation just before the little friends arrive... the butterflies... ooooh eeeeey!




we are quite happy that Umpa is here... healthy... happy... 



oh my how fun... a face painter! my friend has a face painting, henna business and she's just so amazing! what a hit at a party! so much fun! even I got my face painted!!!








little flamingo sister... she had such a fun day with her sister and friends...




it was a really happy day! so much fun! I'm kinda loving 7!



ohhhh the big day... her actual 7th birthday morning... 





every year I take a picture of Isabelle in this dress.. it's my dress... one day she will fit in to it... it's so fun to see how much she's grown... the first year it was in a puddle on the ground... and now look at it. wow!
