It's been a while...


a year or so since these little guys have graced us with their presence.  They are my favorite flowers in our yard.  Their blooms are so pretty....and last only a short while....


But I think what I love about them most is....that they remind me of this...
(no, not of the progress report...though I am darn proud of her good marks today)....


My Sophia!  April is her month.  She was supposed to be a May baby...just like her mama...but boy was I thrilled when she surprised me in April.  I think she knew diamonds would be her birthstone if she just came into the world a little sooner than expected! :)  I remember seeing these flowers right before she was born almost 6 years ago...and every year since....April is their month too!  And just like she does...they add a little beauty to my day.  One week from today...my baby will be 6....how can this be?  Some days her stubborn"ness"  makes me want to pull my hair out....and other days I see every bit of myself in her.  She is one AMAZING little miracle.... and I think the day she was born will always seem "just like yesterday" to me. 

Here are a few cookies I was working on for her birthday..... Purple is really not my color.... I'm generally more of a red and blue kind of gal.  But I think these will go with the birthday theme.


I was trying to take pics of the cookies this morning and guess who poked his head in my camera???
Mr. smiles!  You wouldn't have guessed that actually he was rather cranky today....but let me at least toot his horn (Sophia has been laughing over this Junie B. phrase... "toot your own horn" all week) and tell you the ENT specialist  today said he handled his adenoid scope test better than any other child she has ever seen.  He was soooooo good...didn't even cry when they stuck that strange little noodle thing in his tiny little nose.  I was one proud Mama!!!  But better yet.... we discovered his adenoids are not abnormally large.  That means...no surgery necessary.  But back to the drawing boards for his allergies and reflux....singulair here we come!!!

So...it has been quite a week so far.  Sophia seems to have overcome her bad headache bout ( still not sure if it was allergies, migraines, or a virus) but whatever it was I hope we don't have any more repeat episodes.  Headaches are no fun at all especially when you are only almost 6 and the swings and monkey bars are calling your name:)

My favorite memory was having her all to myself in the hospital room while Lia took a quick nap! love her! And, little Joe . . . can he be any sweeter? Glad everyone is on the mend. Can't wait for the bday soiree. xoxo thea

She IS BEAUTIFUL! I love love love the music you put to this special little girl's face! It's funny you wrote this on the same day I was telling her I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU ARE ALL READY SIX YEARS OLD, MISS SOPHIA. And......those curly locks on my special little boy's head drive me WILD!!! <3
