12 on the 12th :: February 2011

On the 12th my baby girl turned 3 and I turned into the kind of mom who calls here 3 year old a baby. I am not ashamed.



01. The birthday girl in a for reals big-girl-bed.
02. Playing brown bear + panda bear with Grandpa Ken.
03. Ahem. Slowly but surely: curly hair.
04. We'll pretend Z chose where to eat lunch.
05. Dilly Bar
06. I finished the Pope hat birthday crown.
07. These cupcakes were fan-freakin-tastic you guys!
08. She blew out the candles three times.
09. Forget the pope hat, Claire sent rad princess gear!
10. These magnetic dress-up dolls were a huge hit.
11. Birfday Bawoons.
12. Mama + birthday girl.

Here's Z's grid last year. You know, for reference.

Did you document your 12th? Play along and link to your grid here.

Sweet day! LOVE the Pope hat. For the record both my 14 and 11 year old girls are still my babies (along with their 13 and 10 year old brothers!) Great peek into your day :)

How fun that this month's collage day fell on her birthday! She's so cute, though I had no idea she was turning 3...I think of her as being so much younger than that for some reason.

How can she be three? She is such a darling little curly-haired princess.

My mom called my kids "the baby" until the next one was born, which for Lucas was almost age 6...

Sarah said...

What a cutie! Happy Birthday.
I didn't do the 12 on 12th because I worked a night shift the night before and then the night of -- so really, I didn't take any pictures... next month.

Loved comparing to last year. :) Happy Bday to your little curly-headed cutie.

I don't know what your talking about. I don't think Z's birthday crown resembles Pope's hat one bit. Okay, maybe a little. :) Happy third birthday little curly haired girl.

What a happy day. Those curls kill me! And, for the record, all my kids are still babies, too. :)

The Ostheds said...

Happy Birthday Z!!! I can't believe how fast 3 years has gone! Our girls are only days apart and they still have never met! What is up with that?

jt said...

I think it is to be expected that she still be called your baby, especially since she is your only!
I love the grid.
I'm glad she finally has those adorable curls.
Happy Birthday Z!

April said...

HOLY CRAP, the HAIR!!! I love it. Happy Birthday Zaley!
I still find myself calling my oldest son my baby....aint no shame cause he was infact a child I birthed.
I want to send you an email, but I really I have million things to do and I need to get off the internet like an hour ago. But Angie's sister in law started this new blog and I think you would love it. http://danalinfoster.blogspot.com/
The comments are great.
Love you!

Z, someday we will make it out for your birthday because your parties always look fabulous. Your curls are awesome. And I love me some DQ too.

Also, we didn't forget about a present for you...I'm just going to make you something. And the needles I need to use to make it are currently all full of something I need to finish making Will. Hopefully you'll have it before you turn 4. =)

Holly said...

Your collage is chock full of pink, cuteness, love and cupcakes--how FUN!!

Oh and the DQ. Love that place.

Looks like y'all enjoyed a wonderful day of celebrating!

Happy #3 to your little curly Q!

I love all the pink! :)

Charlotte said...

Azalea is just too adorable, and it looks like she had an incredibly wonderful birthday. I love the pink cupcakes, the crown, and the curls (and the alliteration, obviously). She's getting so big, I can hardly believe it!

Oh I love this birthday 12of12 celebration!

ps I still call my almost 7 year old my baby. I think they just always are.
