Don't ever forget good friends are everything. Today, Cleo and Lucy came over to celebrate Memorial Day. We fired up some hot dogs, filled up the baby pool, blew up the bouncy, debuted that polka dot bikini and had a blast!
June became obsessed with the Sesame Street Episode called: Veggies Revolt. It's the one where the veggies go on strike and revolt because they feel downtrodden and disrespected. The one restaurant patron says something like, "What do you mean, I love vegetables" and the ringleader Broccoli with the bullhorn screams, "Oh YEAH? MR. TUNA SANDWICH, HOLD THE LETTUCE?!" It's hilarious... as a result, June loves watching this episode and eating her veggies, her favorite is "okie" (broccoli). Why is it not a surprise to me that she relates the most to the ringleader Broccoli character? She also likes "Anderson Cucumber" who's reporting on this situation for VNN (Veggie News Network).
Please note: to watch this episode just google "veggies revolt", comes right up.
I can only sum up your 2nd Birthday Party this way - it was inspired by Elmo's World where there's fun, learning, friends, family and in this particular case, all your favorite things - bouncing, bubbles, bugs and bacon! Everyone had so much fun... can't wait for next year!
Giving kids craft projects during a birthday party is the best. They stay so occupied and it's not hard to put together. I got these butterflies on a stick at Michael's as well as the paint stamps and jars of paint and markers. My mom xeroxed a ladybug image onto red construction paper and the kids were taught how to blot some black paint on each side, fold the paper in half and voila! Ladybug art! So cute. Bonus: we hung up the artwork on a grate at the park with clothes pins which looked really great at the party and Bonus 2: I've picked the best of the lot and going to frame them and put them on June's walls. Thanks for the free kids art, friends!
For a second year in a row, your little friends wore their cutest duds to your shindig. I was particularly impressed with the boys this year... Finn and his classic black and white striped tee with fedora; Jagger wore this great rock 'n roll day of the dead tee with his awesome long blonde hair; little Max paired up Paul Frank with Toms and cool checkered shorts; also loved True's classic black and white checked shirt. The girls came out in their cute little summer dresses; Stella rocked the hipster anchor prints, Liv and Molly were vintage perfection; loved Madeleine's fairy frock and of course Ava and Mikaila brought the O.C. glamour with their racer back princess dresses and mirror shades (perfect little Daddy's girls). You looked all cute in a little jersey dress that Auntie Myla got you for your birthday last year. MVP Fashion Award goes to Taylor who was sporting the Katy Perry crackle toe polish for OPI. Baby Fashionistas!
My name is Angelica, I live in Hollywood, CA with my husband and our baby girl, June Alba. I’ve worked in the music business for about 20 years and I currently work for a major record label in Beverly Hills, CA. I started this blog as a way of battling postpartum depression... and after serious complications in childbirth, I became very aware of how precious and short life is... I want my daughter to read this blog someday and understand how much I care for her and all my thoughts and feelings about what a joy it has been to have her in my life.
