this weekend was all about survival in our house.

i survived Isabella and Noah’s 2nd annual joint birthday BBQ blast at our house. (our babies are two. i’m dying. well, Isabella’s not officially two until wednesday)

(and just for added cuteness..these are last year’s boy and girl. also…the biggest cake in the world:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

they are a little bigger and have slightly more hair)

and miss Isabella survived the two-year drop-dead date for the tossing of the bottles. that’s right, folks. i finally did it. Bella’s bottles have officially hit the trash. she went to bed alright, she was so zonked from the party. but woke up at 10ish all ”i don’t want a sippy cup!!! wah!!! I. WANT. MY BOTTLE.” for about half an hour until she passed out. and slept until the morning. shazaam.

(her favorite gift. can someone please explain to me why this barbie mertopia – i think that’s what it’s called, maybe mermaidia – has Frodo hobbit shoes?)

also…more pics of the party on my flickr.

  3. Yesterday was FUN!!

    Today is Noah’s birthday and when I cuddled him this morning and stroked his cheek, I had a flashback to when he was born…I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since that 18 hour labour…and even more, I can’t believe how much my love for him has grown…I thought I couldn’t love him anymore after he was first born…and here we are 2 years later and my love keeps growing. I guess what they say is true…the bigger they are the more you have to love :)

    Ali, part of my memories of Noah’s birth – is of you coming into my hospital room when Noah was 2 days old – to say hi and tell us that you were in labour with Bella! :) That time in my life (& fry’s) is so special and having that bond with you, gav, and bella…has made our happiness and joy even greater – and it is a bond that I will forever treasure :)

    We are so lucky to have you and the jami’s in our lives – and I can’t wait to share each and every one of our special moments together! :)

  10. Hooray for Isabella and Noah!

    You are better mom than me. I’m a sucker for the deafening requests for a Baby Bottle, a Baby Bottle… My daughter will be a teenager before she gives in to a sippy cup. I can’t wait to hear how Isabella fairs with no more bottles.
