Birthday girl!

I can't belive that Allison is 4! Where did all that time go?

How's this for lazy mommy? I just couldn't bring myself to make a cake, so we got one from the grocery store and plopped a Rapunzel figurine on it. I got lucky with a pink and purple accented cake.

She loved all the attention. It was low-key on Sunday, but we'll be hosting a birthday party for 8 little girls on Thursday... wish me luck!

Today I...

Today I yelled at the top of my lungs.

Today I told my almost 4-year-old that I was cancelling her birthday party.

Today I ignored my 2-year-old when I knew he was awake and finished with his nap.

Today I refused to make dinner. Or put the kids to bed.

Today I wanted to run away.

Today was not a good day on the mommy front.

Maybe tomorrow will be better...

Yesterday morning, I had an ultrasound and we all got to find out the gender of baby #3. It was a pretty amazing machine, but a REALLY squirmy baby... which is why the picture is a little unclear...

Baby's profile with hand near the face. :)

Yesterday evening I went shopping... cause thats what you do when you find out... buy baby a new outfit, right? Or two or eight...



Its another girl for us! :)

By the way, if you love the cuteness that is Gymboree, I asked one of the employees at my store if they had any 0-3 month fall/winter things in back (read: old stuff marked down cheap), and they brought me out a big ol' pile of things to pick through. You just have to ask and they're usually happy to pull stuff for you if they're not too busy. Everything I got was marked under $7 per peice.
