I’m not gonna lie, I think Cameron had a better time taking pictures this time around than Kayla. He went crazy for the little pool and he loves anything with wheels so he was in heaven. Although not so much into the pictures, Kayla IS very much into learning about the United States. She’s learned the names of all 50 states and now wants to know who lives in each state and what’s there. Needless to say we do not know people in all 50 states so we’ve resorted to naming politicians. She keeps us on our toes with her seemingly endless questions but we love her unquenchable desire to learn.

As for the clothes, Kayla picked out her own Gymboree outfits so she of course loved those. And her love for headbands continues. The bow dress that I picked out was not her favorite because apparently bows are cute but only when they’re tiny. She hated the big blue bow on her dress even though it’s clearly adorable.

Kayla is excited to celebrate 4th of July this year and is so ready for red, white and blue popsicles and fireworks. I had thought last year was going to be the year she’d finally love fireworks but she didn’t like the sound! We watch them from about 2 miles away so I have no idea why the sound scared her but she’s let us know that she’s not afraid this year. We’re probably not going to let the little “zilla” as we call him stay up for the show as he needs every bit of sleep he can get! Until next year for his reaction.

We wish everyone a very happy and safe 4th of July!!!

Top Dress: OshKosh; Hat: Circo; Shoes: Cherokee; Star Dress: Youngland; Bow: Gift (similar) T-Shirt & Shorts: Carters

Yep, she’s back and this time as a big sister! This is Cameron’s debut on WKW, he may not look thrilled but this kid is all about smiles. Kayla adores her little brother (when she’s not trying to startle him awake from a peaceful slumber). I’m going to have to figure out a trick to get them to smile at the same time. Every time one is smiling the other will cough, sneeze, cry or just look away.

Kayla wore her star dress to school today for her 4th of July picnic/parade and got so many compliments. She currently loves anything that sparkles so the glitter stars on the tutu were a big hit. Her sandals were also sparkly silver and for some reason she loves the fact that both straps velcro on each foot.

I’m looking forward to fireworks with friends and family this weekend. For some reason, Kayla wasn’t a fan of them last year (maybe too loud?). I’m hoping she realizes how fun they are this time around.

Happy 4th of July!

Happy Thursday! Here’s a flashback to last year’s 4th of July. Kayla was an ADORABLE little firecracker. I’ve been looking for the perfect outfit for this year but haven’t found it just yet. This shopping thing gets tricky when work is crazy but I’ll find it!

Enjoy this week’s inspiration.
