Photos from Summer’s 3rd Birthday!

I can’t believe we have a three year old!! In the middle of birthday season over here and and a few weeks ago we ate Johnny’s chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast, visited the local toy store for a little treat (kinda love that you picked $1 bubbles and a packet of balloons!) and invited two of Summer’s little friends over for bubbles and birthday cake!

A few photos we took during your special day…

Face-timing with grandparents over breakfast! I know it can be hard to live so far away from them on birthdays, but thankful for technology so we can still see them and chat. I’m sure everyone else also enjoyed your Nanny’s rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’ too! ;)

Summer Faith.

I’ve just tucked you in (hopefully!!) for the last time as a two year old. You asked for a story, so I told you the one of the day we first met. How you came into our life and forever changed it. You then quickly asked for another… “about a unicorn”…I love this age and that imagination of yours!!!

You have brought so much love and life to our family. We can’t wait to celebrate you tomorrow, with pancakes and presents and little friends and lots of love.

It’s become a little tradition on the eve of your birthday to stay up later than usual scrolling through hard drives of old photos and videos and the beautiful memories we’ve collected. It might also have to do with some last minute birthday crowns too!

This year you became a sister. And I’m so proud of the creative, sweet and loving human being you are becoming.

Happy Birthday sweet girl.

* written last night but never posted because Summer Adams that was not the last time we tucked you in!!!



Birthday Celebrations

I’m finally getting around to sharing a few photos from Summer’s 2nd birthday party from a couple of weeks ago. We had a lot of fun squeezing everyone into our little apartment! I hand-stamped some bunny invitations, we blew up a few balloons and kept the menu super simple with a triple layer vanilla buttercream cake from Magnolia (one of Summer and I’s fave bakeries in the city!!!), some fresh fruit and chocolate milk for the kiddos.

A big shout out to my Mum and Auntie Avril who came into town for a few days, we had such a fun week celebrating, eating good food and walking the legs off ourselves! Of course they were such a help too cleaning dishes and picking up toys wherever they went…and then there was the free baby-sitting!! Thanks ladies…feel free to move in in May!;)
