Summer Birthday Exchange

I love a good tradition, a celebration - and of course, any type of present, so when Elizabeth asked Waverly & I to be a part of the summer birthday exchange for the second year in a row, we were super excited & all in!  You can see last year's post here, the idea is that all the little ones with summer birthdays draw names & send birthday gifts to each other.  We love this so much & are so thankful to be included with some of our very favorite blog friends each year. :)

Waverly got the sweetest package from Laura and her sons, Liam & Finn, the cutest apron ever!  It is seriously adorable & Waverly loves to bake, so this was the perfect present for her.  Laura also included a recipe, Liam's favorite cookies, & I can't wait to bake them with Waverly during one of Avalon's nap times very soon!

Thank you Liam & Finn, & happy early 3rd birthday to Liam!


We got to send a present to Ethan, we love his mom Natasha's blog (& her style!), plus their newest little guy, Wyatt, is just precious!  You can see what we got for Ethan's birthday here, happy belated 3rd birthday!

You can find all the other blogs who participated in the exchange here:
Amanda & Lily @ Tickled Pink, Elizabeth & Mason @ Chasin' Mason, Jess & Sadie @ Sadie Sky Boutique, Laura & Presley @ Happily Ever Parker, Laureen & Tyson @ Chataeu Deveau, Sara & Mac @ Running From the Law, Sarah & Brantley @ Seeing All Sides, Stehaphanie & Grey @ Olivia and Tate, Traci & Charli @ The Hallway

And lastly, before we sign off for the holiday weekend, a few pictures of the girls this week!  Avalon is getting more alert by the day, though her awake times are still few & far between.  Waverly will say "omg, her eyes are open!", we all love it so much & though I'm sure that's right when things will get harder, I am really looking forward to her being able to interact with us more in the weeks to come.  By far, Waverly's favorite thing to do is hold her sister, she asks me every single night to come hold her & kiss her before bed, I'm not sure there is anything sweeter.


Wishing you all the HAPPIEST holiday weekend!
XO

  9. Little aprons are maybe my favourite things ever. I saw mini ones at a store the other day and wanted to buy a couple for the future for when we have kids! SO cute.
