last week..

my baby celebrated his eleventh birthday!!


actually, we celebrated twice...
(seems like this is starting to be a trend)

once, the day before with all his cousins.

this of course meant we needed to make a cake...
and EVERYONE needed to help.

the second birthday celebration was a little bit simpler.

since his real birthday fell on Ash Wednesday..
which is a day of fast and abstinence...
(this means no eating meat or eating between meals)
he had..

salmon cakes and homemade mac n cheese for dinner...
complete with singing and a candle.

 thanks to the help of her big brothers

meet the little peanut

who arrived just a teensy bit early...

she spent a couple extra days chillin in her awesome sunglasses
 at the hospital before she could come home

 but the kids did a fabulous job of making up for lost time in a matter of minutes..

there was much snuggling ...

 inspecting, and comparing...

 more smiling...
more snuggling...

and tons of love..

when Peanut came home!

 She was born on January 20, 2012

weighing in at a whopping 6 lbs 6 oz


measuring 19 1/2 inches.

(not to shabby for being 3 1/2 weeks early)
