ju ju kaye




happy birthday Julia.

Ok so your birthday was really on Sunday. But you're only 3. And three year olds luckily don't have a clue about how dates and calendars really work. The first 3 or 4 years of a child's life gives parents time to learn and make mistakes- and not be condemned for doing so. Because when they're 5 or 6, it's all over. "My birthday is in exactly 2 weeks, 3 days, 15 hours and 25 minutes." There's no way of forgetting birthdays then.

I didn't space Ju-Ju's birthday- well not entirely. I just didn't have the energy to celebrate it on her birthday- and either did she. She wasn't feeling too hot. Well actually she was feeling hot- a fever.

But today we celebrate. Just us...and Joette. A cake we all decorate together- a couple presents- Duck Duck Goose and Hide-and-Go-Seek with Daddy. (he makes it scary!)









Love you Julia. You are so interesting to me. I can't think of anyone more unpredictable than you. I so wish you came with an instruction book. I know the front page would read, "handle with care" and "warning: explosive"

but I love you...so so so much. You make me smile. I love your little words and the way you pronounce your "S's". I love how you ask me to scratch your back before bed. What 3 year old wants their back scratched? I love how you are concerned about everyone's happiness.

Stop growing please. Oh just stay little forever.

Hi April! I just caught up on your blog while waiting for my photos to upload to my computer.. You are great! Still make me smile, laugh, and cry. Your new baby is beautiful and your girls are amazing too! Wish I could spend a day catching up with you.

April, I thought I had your e-mail address, but couldn't find it anywhere. hmm....

So I'm thinking next week would work better for visiting teaching... I have something going on every night this week. Maybe Wed of next week.....? I know that is quite advance notice.... but e-mail me and let me know if that works. lindsay249@hotmail.com. Thanks April!

Oh and happy birthday to Ju Ju... She is darling and I love that she has a little spice! =)
