Wizard of Oz Birthday

Little Miss K has loved Wizard of Oz for a couple of years, so it was natural that she wanted a “Dorothy” birthday party. I can’t believe this girl is already four years old! Her birth feels like yesterday. We had a great time celebrating with family and close friends My mom did a great job with the cake. I found the figurines for it on ebay – they were from the 2013 McDonald’s Happy Meals. I had fun designing the decorations and coming up with food ideas – there wasn’t much out there on Pinterest, believe it or not. Here’s what we did:

Yellow brick road: egg casserole

Over the rainbow: fruit rainbow

Bugels: tornados

Lions, tigers, and bears, oh my!: animal crackers

Ruby slippers: Hot Tamales

Witch’s broomsticks: pretzels

Tin man hats: Hershey’s kisses

Aunt Em’s fresh squeezed juice: You guessed it – juice!

Miss M | Four Months Old

This little turkey is four months old today! She is in a pretty good routine with daycare and evenings at home, typically eating every three hours and napping throughout the day, then falling asleep around 9 p.m. and waking up once around 4 a.m. to eat. (Luckily she goes right back to sleep.) She has started rolling over front to back and grabbing toys, and she loves to give us big smiles, squeals, and little giggles. She follows her sister everywhere with her eyes! See how she’s changed since last month.
