Last fall Aven and I planted about 100 daffodil and tulip bulbs in the front yard. We are finally getting to see the results of our labor and our house looks pretty fabulous. Pretty soon we'll be turning the planter box on the left into an edible garden, but for now it just looks really pretty. I hope everyone if having a happy spring!

Tea Party

Ian is a huge tea aficionado, so he's been excited about having a tea party with his daughter ever since we found out Aven was going to be a daughter. The problem is, Aven doesn't like tea. Ian has brewed all sorts of different flavor combinations and has even added *gasp* sugar. No matter what he makes she turns her nose up at it. He's not giving up yet, but for the time being he's going to have to settle for pretend tea parties with dolls and teddy bears.

Believe it or not I still have four months to go- yikes. I've gotten way bigger way faster this time around. Aven is loving the idea of a new baby and is convinced that she also has a baby in her belly. Here's to a comfortable and non-swollen four months! 
In the not too distant future I'll have to use Aven to help prop up my expanding belly.

Little Girls Are Just Precious

Aven and Teddy

It doesn't get much cuter than that.
