Since You Only Turn Six Once

Feb 5, 2013
Like most things that happened last year, Macey's 5th birthday wasn't quite as exciting or fun as I would of liked it to be due to the lovely nausea of pregnancy. This year we made up for it.

It began with Macey having her first real friend birthday party. Lucky for me I decided to do it at Creativity Art Studio, since we were unexpectedly gone for over a week right before her birthday. It was heaven not having to clean and then have my house destroyed by a group of 5 and 6 year olds.

She couldn't of been happier to go to school on her birthday and loved getting to wear a crown all day. Plus, we brought in Fun Dips to share with her class.

After school we met Maddy and Libby at Chuck E Cheese.

She also had Hip-Hop that day and since we can't make homemade treats for school, she really wanted to make marshmallow pops for her dance friends. I obliged, since all I had to do was melt the chocolate for her.

The day then ended with her favorite meal of pancakes, opening presents and a carousel cake with rainbow sherbet ice cream cones.

All in all I'd say it was a good day. Or as Macey said, "That was the best, best, best, best, bestest birthday ever!" Love Birthdays and this girl.

Happy birthday Macey! What a cute cake. Did you actually pack all that fun into one day? Crazy! That's a week's worth, at least.

Half a Year.

Life is good for Crew at 6 months. He is still a mellow, happy, and friendly baby. We (well, except Miles)just can't get enough of him.

-He has mastered the sit and prefers this position as he is less likely to get stepped on while sitting up.

-We finally fed him real food and he of course loves it. So far I've cut him off after an entire jar. As you can tell by his physique, this kid can eat.

-His hair is growing back.


-he is still just as cute as ever.

Photo Credit of the Good Pictures goes to Holly of hRob Photography, of course. She took these in less than 10 min on her dinning room table. Sometimes I don't know what we'd do without her.

Since I can't resist a baby comparison, here you go:

Macey (7 months):
26.25 inches
16 lbs 14 oz

27.5 inches
18 lbs 6 oz
head 44 cm

head 45.7 cm

He is adorable and I also cannot get enough of him! I love the photo of him in his hat, so cute. I like the comparison and think at 6 months he and Macey look the most alike.
Crew is soooooooooooo cute, I cannot stand it!!
I love you guys. And I love crew. And he is the perfect mix of mace and miles!
