Hearts & Half-Birthday Cakes

TGIF, everyone!!  We are so, so glad to see Friday roll around, my husband had an overnight job this week which kept him working through the night three days in a row.  The change from our normal routine was hard on all of us (I have so much respect for all of you who do that all of the time!), we are in desperate need of some good family time this weekend!  Other than a kids birthday party, we have no plans but to relax & get some things done around the house, I can't wait! :)

  Waverly is the absolute cutest with her babies lately, between her imagination & her motherly instincts, I could just watch her with them all day long.  She talks to them all of the time, saying "oh baby, why are you so sad, I will rock you so you won't cry", or when they apparently aren't drinking their milk as she feeds them, "baby, drink your milk or you are going to time-out", & maybe my favorite, "baby, you look so beautiful".  My mom got Waverly & one of her babes matching heart jammies for Christmas, I had been looking forward to dressing them alike ever since for some February fun!


Waverly's face when she saw they were matching was priceless, she kept looking in the mirror while holding her little babe as proud as ever.  She wanted to take a picture, but only as long as baby could have her milk right beside her, in case she got thirsty.  And she of course needed her phone, because well, she always needs her phone.

Also, my hubby's face at the sight of the matching jams was equally as entertaining, I think he just might be getting nervous about the matching outfits I may have planned for Waverly & her baby sister in the near future. ;)  Speaking of, I haven't shopped at Crazy 8 for Waverly much, but my mom & I randomly stumbled upon the fact that all of their toddler girls clothes are 6 months to 5 years the other day!  I was so excited because a lot of what I have found for both girls doesn't match with their three year age difference, Crazy 8 have some really cute stuff!  I am loving both this skirt & these leggings, which the girls could wear for (next) Valentines Day. :)

We celebrated Waverly's half-birthday last weekend with half a cake, she of course loved it & has been singing to herself ever since.  We have lots of family members & friends with birthdays this time of year (real ones, not just half ones), so she has been having lots of practice with the song lately.  One of her current favorite past-times is to watch little kids sing happy birthday on you tube, if you have some extra time you should look them up, they are some very entertaining ones out there.

  2. Love the matching jammies! They often have crazy 8 and Gymboree coupons in parenting magazines... Keep an eye out! Last year we did a half cupcake for Noah's half birthday but as you can imagine it didn't stand up very well. I think I'll have to make a cake this year! Love celebrating for any reason possible, and Noah loves candles and singing happy birthday so it's perfect!

  3. Oh my goodness, so cute! Lil kids in jammies are so precious, but matching jammies, triple the preciousness ;)!

    Love that you celebrate her half birthday, that's so sweet and fun!

    Sorry the husband was away, that stinks just being a wife, but I can only imagine it with a lil one and baby hormones. Sending you <3 and hugs! Happy FRIDAY!

  4. Too too cute! I haven't given too much thought to matching the girls but you bring up a good reminder! I bet gymboree might have coordinating outfits in different sizes too!

  11. Waverly is adorable! I hope to see lots of matching with her little sister. We love matching at our house. Twin girls have to match, right?! Too fun to pass up. Love the half birthday cake idea! Glad your hubby is back! Counting down the hours until mine returns. Days seems like weeks and weeks like months when he's away. Happy Friday!

    1. Haha - it really does, we say that all the time! It was a gift so honestly, I am not sure - possibly amazon because I know my mom gets quite a few of the dolls there! Thanks for stopping in! XO

    2. I fairly certain they sell that one at Target. I think it's the same one my parents got my daughter, and they got it at Target...but like Ashley said, I'm sure Amazon has it too.
