Life is busy -

Life is busy - that seems to be the common thing of our posts lately! 
I think it must get busier once kids get older. Right?! 
It seems once we get home at the end of the day we are even busier. 
Lia goes and goes. All in - all day! 
She is a very active child and loves to have something to do 
And we love it 

Lia loves bugs - bug hunts- bug books and bug toys 
She even loves shows about bugs - whirligig beetles to be exact 
 This is her new favorite toy!!! 

Look who's back - good old Brobee - 
He used to go EVERYWHERE with Lia. 
For a while he just stayed at home but now he's back. 
He's a little older now and sure he's a little worn and 
one eye may almost be completely rubbed off BUT ...
he's comfortable, familiar and he's back. 

Every night - no matter how many other books we read- 
 this one has to be the last one before we go to sleep. 

We still have the same cute little bedtime routine- only now it includes the following songs:
My Favorite Things - Sound of Music style 
Let it Go - Elsa style 
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Good Night Sweetheart - Mommy style
Speaking of Let it Go - check her out!!! 

Lia will be turning 5 next month! 
Here's our inspiration for her party. 
She wants a "Purple Princess Lia party" 

But lets get through February first. There are a lot of fun things going on in this short month: 
Daddy's Birthday 
Valentines Day and 
Chinese New Year / The Spring Festival 

Lia got a tee-pee for Christmas and loves having camp outs in the living room, 
complete with s'mores. As you can see she still LOVES her Sofia the First nightgown. 

And just to end with a few cute pictures from our weekend- 

Yep - life is busy and this little one keeps it F-U-N


  1. How cute! I see that she's learning to smile more naturally.

    And FIVE??? Tempus fugit...

  2. busy and fun! the best.

    My gosh the video - too cute. I like when she is like...and I don't know anymore lyrics. That's me. I'll nail those three lines though =)

    5! oh man that is such a big number. I love the purple princess party. Make sure to watch the tea party one when you need to remember that bigger isn't always better =)

  3. I love that teepee! I hope I can have a little girl just for all of the princess stuff!
