Sweet Carlie

Carlie is all smiles, pure joy, and took my heart the first time I laid eyes on her. She'll be 12 weeks old on Monday!

One of My Favorites...

Mimi is one of my favorite people that ever walked this earth. I have been blessed with the gift of spending 33 out of 96 birthdays with her! We named our first daughter after her. I have had conversations with her that will change me forever. I use her green "cake"plate for my desserts
and remember the taste of the cakes she used to bake. I admire and look up to her. She played a huge role in my life as a child. Mimi is one of my favorites....Happy 96th Birthday Mimi! You are so loved!

I absolutely LOVE to read people's blogs. I follow several, some that give great advice about raising children. I just read one not too long ago, talking about offering choices to children. I loved it! These days are filled with lots of "no's", "please don't's", "we're going here", "we need to do this"...blah, blah, blah. I decided that Addie would love to have some choices during her day, to include her in decisions being made. Today, I allowed her to pick which shoes she wanted to wear, and she said "flip flops". Ok, great! Did they match? Nope! Did she want to wear them? Yep! Perfect- left for the zoo a few minutes later with no fussing. Great advice!
