locks of love

v was so very happy to have her hair cut today and donate it. she was impatient as she waited for her turn at the salon and asked the receptionist twice how much longer she would have to sit around. when it was finally time for her to sit down in the chair it was hard not to cry. partly because she was so very happy and sure of her decision and partly because i knew she would look so grown up which to me is just NOT okay. needless to say she went through with it and proceeded to spend the new few hours at the mall telling everyone who would listen that she just cut her hair and was giving it away. she got a lot of high fives which it pretty awesome when you're 5.

its the little things

supermodel v.

daddy teaching her the ropes.

jumping for joy.

practicing her t-ball skills.


silly girl.

bubble blowing.

shadows and bubbles.

little hands that melt my heart.

its days like today that i feel so lucky to be able to be home with my girls. there are moments almost everyday that i wish i could go to school or work just to talk to adults but then there are the moments like these that remind me that i'll never look back on my life and wish i didn't spend my days chasing little people who are truly happy just to play with soap and flowers. 


If I was a flower growing wild and free
All I'd want is you to be my sweet honey bee. And if I was a tree growing tall and green All I'd want is you to shade me and be my leaves. 

If you were a wink, I'd be a nod. If you were a seed, well I'd be a pod. If you were the floor, I'd wanna be the rug. And if you were a kiss, I know I'd be a hug. 

the girls were dancing to barry louis polisar's song 'all i want is you' and when i heard the lyrics as they twirled around it hit me how true they are. these two will be little partners in crime for life and it makes me so very happy to know that they have each other no matter what. i hope they will be best friends and that they will go together like the words above because really, what's better than having a sibling who knows the real you and still loves you ;)
