Darby 14/52 v2

When you were just a little feisty baby we talked about "the many faces of Darby Moira!" You face told us everything - you were hungry, you were hangry, you were annoyed, you thought we were too loud, you did not understand why we were fussing over you, you did not understand why we were not fussing over you, your brother was bugging you, the dog's breath smelled... we adored watching your facial expressions and tried desperately to catch them all on film (well not really film, but you know what we mean). Now we love to watch you throw looks at random people and see how they react, you are forever a skeptic when people talk baby talk to you, and will not hesitate to offer a stink eye over treats that are not being shared. Our expectation is that as an adult you will have what we commonly refer to as "resting bi#ch face" nowadays, but we have no doubt that those who get past the blue steel face will adore you and forgive you for whatever looks you throw their way!

Ewan's love of Darth Vader is still strong. This week for pajama day he wore his new pajamas and happily escorted Princess Leia.

Ewan loves to celebrate birthdays! This week for mama's birthday he designed a cake (that made mama teary) with daddy and enjoyed a very large slice.

Darby's doctor is still impressed by her --- 25.6 pounds, 31.9 inches, extremely communicative, insanely social, and a fireball that must be watched!

Darby 12/52 v2

For Darby's 1st Birthday we made a donation to the San Francisco Zoo, specifically to the new tropical rainforest and aviary building. This weekend we went to see the new space and showed Darby her name!

One of Ewan's favorite weekend activities  is going to the movies. This past weekend we took him and his best girl to see Minions. He is such a champ in the movies, as long as he has his popcorn, juice and fruit snacks he is set. His sister on the other hand cramped his style a little bit, but with his sweet big brother heart he forgave her.

You are a true patriot Ewan, happy 4th of July! This year you learned the pledge of allegiance and proudly shouted it for anyone that would listen. Our favorite line is definitely "and to the repugic"... and the part where you throw your arms up at the end to emphasize "justice for all" is pretty darn cute too!

Happy 4th Darby! The pomp and circumstance of the flag definitely confused you, but you were very in to the hot dogs and watermelon. Friends say you would love to attend some of the Independence Day parades in the area, maybe next year little lady!

Darby 10/52 v2

This picture perfectly epitomizes Darby to us. It's hard to explain, but she is the perfect balance of sugar and spice... adorable dress and matching moccasins with a bundle of bugs! When we opened her class newsletter and saw this picture we could not help but smile.

This week Ewan became an Octopus! After the standard week of transitioning he officially joined the 3/4 classroom. He woke up on his first morning bubbling with excitement, just another situation that he handled like a boss that made mama weepy.
