Pacifier Heartbreak


Three days ago we took away Bryony's beloved "bee". Well, we didn't take it away - we took a special trip to daycare and Bryony happily handed them over to the babies in the infant room. She has been proud to tell us "bee is for babies, no bee for Bryony". Until bedtime. When she searches the crib for it, and then cries out for me. Ugh, so hard. But we have to hang in there! You too Bryony - hang in there, you can do just fine without it, I promise!

Preparing for Christmas









Minnie Mouse Birthday Party

Bryony has been a huge Minnie Mouse fan since our Disneyland trip in April. It was the obvious choice for her birthday party theme!

ended the night with chips and a Minnie Mouse movie

Phoenix Zoo

Just as we did on Abigail's 2nd birthday, we took the day off to celebrate Bryony's 2nd birthday at the Phoenix Zoo. Here are the pictures:













Bryony Turns Two!



 
 
Our baby is no longer a baby - she turned TWO!
Such a special little girl - we love you SO MUCH Bryony.

The Help by Kathryn Stockett


I haven't had much time for reading but I just finished this book. I really liked it and will definitely rent the movie to see how it compares. That's all I'm going to comment on. It's Christmas Eve and unfortunately I'm way too busy for my Blog tonight!
