November Girls


We have 2 birthdays in November that are about a week apart. 

It is the best of times. 

Rosie has had a huge obsession with "pink-princess-kitty-cats" lately and so we really delivered on that this year. Everything was pink, and princessy, and kittied-up. 


Rosie is such a joy. She has the biggest smile and the best giggle. She is constantly being tickled and chased because we all love hearing her laugh so much. She loves being the center of attention and will do anything to turn all eyes toward her. She is completely adored and every-bit the baby of the family - even though she is trying really hard to convince us that she is big.


Lately she has been telling Easy and I, "You can't houd my anymore, because I'm getting bigga and bigga!"

What she doesn't know is that I will hold her as long as I possibly can. 

On Ava's birthday E and I took her on a little date. It was so fun to sit and chat, laugh and hear her ideas over lunch. 

Ava is a constant source of peace in our home. She is attentive, patient, and kind. She is adored and admired by all who know her. 

Last summer 2 of her best friend's moved away. Then a couple more friends from church decided to home-school. For months she carried on at school without any close friends to play with, but she didn't complain about it. I asked her why she didn't play with Ellie, or Emily, or Marin at recess and she simply said that she didn't like what they played and she preferred to just do the monkey-bars or swing on her own. She silently kept looking for a friend though and when another quiet 3rd grader moved into the other class she swooped in and befriended her. Now they are inseparable.

This is what I admire most about her. She knows what she wants and she doesn't mind standing on her own if the crowd is going another way. She has a quiet strength and gentle compassion that I just love. I hope she keeps these amazing qualities as she grows up, they will serve her well. 

That night we went to the Chihuly exhibit at the Denver Botanical Gardens. It was perfect for our artsy girl.
