Happy Birthday, my Sweet Pea!


For those of you Dumplings who've been with me awhile, you know I birthed a New Year's Day baby. And that we have a tradition with The Hat (enjoy a trip down memory lane here and here). Today she turns 7 - oy! I've tried strapping bricks to her head and making all manner of deals with Beelzebub, but The Pea just keeps growing.


Because she's equal parts girly and tomboy (just like her Mama) she requested My Little Pony toys and an r/c car. As we say around here, it's good to be The Pea.

She is absolutely adorable!! Happy Birthday to your pea! I do wish there was some way we could slow down the aging process (for all of us) - my babes will turn 12 & 9 this year, and I'm dreading it already. Oy is right!

Happy New Year to you all!

Smart. Funny. Adorable. So glad she's out of the former zoo she was living in. The deer, fox and the buffalo are neighbor upgrades!

You go, Mama! What a gorgeous little lady. Happy holidays to you (belated)... I bet this next year will be nothing short of amazing for you and the pea. Looking forward to more smashing design commentary right here!!
