mommies wanted

A quick stop in...
Happy Birthday Mom. I love you and am so glad I got to talk to you on your special day. Sorry the time difference made it midnight before I got a hold of you.

I am looking for your support:
I am part of the New and Expectant Mamas group but they are expanding to include all mommies so I have offered to head the 'toddler & young children' group. Please join our group and/or share with anyone else who might be interested. The group is free and so are most of the activities. Thank you for sharing since we are a member based group we only survive with your support!

Levi & Leia getting ready to start the long birthday celebrations.
(Jazzy's bday party July 26)

I know I have been a bad blogger. I blame my broken computer, lol. Good thing hubby is an IT man cause it needed and still needs lots of love with repairs. We are just so busy around here. We have been celebrating Leia's 5th birthday for almost 3 weeks now. First we did Disneyland and dinner with the Princesses, then we dyed her hair with pink of course. Plus we had a small family day to celebrate. It is finally coming to a close just in time to get ready for Kindergarten. I can not believe it! Lots going on on the Levi front too: Doctor said his Congenital Muscular Torticollis is now healed. YEAH! I can tell how much rounder his head is compared to birth. Plus an official Levi weigh-in on August 13th: 16 lbs, 25.5 inches and 3.5 months old. He takes after Daddy that's for sure, where does the time go? More pictures to come soon.
Now it's time to buckle down and work on September's Retreat

But first a reflection back:
