First Balloon

Lily’s 2nd grade class had a career fair this spring and invited the kids to each make an inexpensive item to bring to class for trade. Lily made stress balls out of animal print balloons, but had an extra that Nora was obsessed with. Here is a series of images of the two of them playing together after school. Cash also hops in on the fun.

Valentines

Clara and I hosted her playgroup the week of Valentines and so we decided to invite everyone over for a bit of a party. Her contributions to everyone’s goodie bags were hugs + kisses pretzels.

We kept things simple with our party: Decorating doughnuts, adding stickers to our goodie bags, and making fruit loop valentines for the birds!untitled-4-2

These girls are the best of friends! These pictures were taken back in wintertime, but even now Gemma lines herself up in front of a sitting Nora, and our sweet girl will rub her belly or grab the hair on either side of Gemma’s muzzle to pull her in for a kiss. She’s generally pretty gentle, and even when she isn’t Gemma is still desperate for Nora’s lovin’!

Tiny Dancer

Clara dances everywhere and one of my favorite things is to glance over my shoulder while searching a grocery aisle and find her breaking out a few impressive dance moves in the center of the store! This morning she came to me dressed up and asked for me to play “Frozen” for her. It was the first song she could sing- practically the first words she ever declared-so its fitting that its also her request when it comes to a good, releasing dance session! DSC_0705 (Large)
