Kayla Grace is the sweetest big sister we ever did see. She takes such good care of her little brother. Whether at school, in a store or even getting my eyebrows waxed she is there to carry him, pick up something he dropped, tie a shoe, give him a boost, kiss his boo boos and correct his grammar. These photos say it all. I don’t ask them to hug, kiss or look lovingly at each other they just do and it melts my heart. We love our sweet valentines more than words can say.
Kayla is having her first Valentine’s show where her little class will sing some songs for us. I can’t wait to see it!!! She has been singing all the songs in the car and around the house and she is always so surprised when I know the words. I have become the parent who annoyingly says, “I know everything”. Kayla picked out little tchotchkes for her friends, filled goodie bags and signed 24 cards for her classmates. She made a special one for her bestie and can’t wait to bring them to school!
Cameron is transitioning to a new school this week and is doing so well, I can’t believe it. I’m so proud of him and the little man he’s shaping up to be. He is the sweetest, snuggliest lil guy I know and I can’t get enough of it. It will be sad to say goodbye to friends and teachers but at least he gets to spend this day with the ones who have been with him since he was just 4 months old. We’ve been talking a lot about Valentine’s Day and he’s also getting excited. He can’t believe his friends will be giving him cards and treats. He’s going to love it!
I hope both kiddos have a Valentine’s day to remember 🙂
Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
Meet Kai! The newest edition to our family. OK, she actually lives with Nonna but we’re all in love. I call her Kai Princess and she’s the sweetest baby German Shepherd rescue ever. We couldn’t be luckier to have her as part of our family and we’re pretty sure the feeling is mutual.
Also, more fun patriotic themed looks from Kayla and Cams. Kayla is such a ham with all these poses she comes up with. Love her personality so much. Cameron was not so into pictures. I had to bribe him with a lollipop for one decent photo. Who can blame him though, he’d rather be off playing with his cars or riding some power wheels vehicle.
We can’t wait for the 4th!!!
Kayla – Swimsuit: Cat & Jack; Glasses: Janie & Jack (similar); Red Shorts: Baby B’Gosh; Gingham Top: Baby B’Gosh (similar); Cameron – Tank: OshKosh; Popsicle Shirt: Cat & Jack; Shorts: Cat & Jack; Shoes: Cat & Jack; Lobster Towel: Pottery Barn Kids.
It’s not even the 4th yet and we’ve been having so much fun! It is swim season and the kids could not be loving the water more. They’ve both been taking swimming lessons and are learning so fast. Kayla skipped 3 levels in her first session, we’re so proud of her. Cameron had a rough start, with lots of tears the first few classes but he has come around and is a start student at last. They both love the beach as well. Cameron loves being buried in the sand and Kayla enjoys burying him.
So many fun red, white and blue props this year, I’m in heaven. I couldn’t resist the rocket pop float. Not only does it photograph well, it’s Kayla’s favorite popsicle. The donut float is not 4th themed but I love donuts and they looked so darn cute in it together, I had to include here. The lobster towel I picked up at Pottery Barn Kids along with a cute, matching plate and cup set. Cams knows it’s his and will not let anyone else use his lobster towel.
I can’t wait to see what other fun this summer brings!
Wishing everyone a very happy and safe 4th.
PS – More pics to come including a special new addition to the family!
