.:Tired Babe:.

Remi was a bit tired after staying up late the nite before. She ended up taking a four hour nap after this video was taken. So cute!

.:From the mouth of Reece:.

Recently heard from Reece:

Me: "You're so cute."
Reece: "Reece is cute?"
Me: "Yes."
Reece: "Remi is cute?"
Me: "Yes."
Reece: "Daddy is cute?"
Me: "Yes."
Reece: "Jesus is cute?"

She saw the vacuum in our closet and said, "That's not Mommy's vacuum. That's Daddy's vacuum." Yep, Josh does all the vacuuming around here, and it has not been lost on Reece!

When Reece doesn't want to do something, she states what it is and then puts 'not' at the end of the sentence. For example: "I want to go to bed, not." "I want to take a nap, not." "I want to eat dinner, not." It cracks me up!

I call Remi, 'Rem' a lot of the time. Reece has taken to calling her 'Rem' as well. Love it! She'll often say, "I want to see my Rem."

I also call both of them 'sweetheart' frequently. Now Reece calls Remi 'sweetheart.' It melts my heart!

She's such a silly girl!

.:Remi's Rainbow Party:.

Our sweet little Rem turned one last weekend, and we threw her a cute little rainbow party. It was the perfect time of year to gather ideas, with it being spring and St. Patrick's Day, so I didn't even have to think - just copy!

I made these cute rainbow cupcakes.

And Remi got a double rainbow cake.

We had a fruit rainbow.

There was also rainbow jello and rainbow fruity pebbles treats.

I made a fun little birthday banner using felt circles sewn together, tissue paper flowers, and some pictures in a timeline.

I made little party favors for the kids using rainbow Twizzlers that had facts about Remi attached to them.

I had also seen peeps rainbow pops at the store, and while the peeps have no significance related to rainbows, I liked the colors!

Remi had to have a little birthday outfit, so I made her a rainbow shirt with a matching headband and bootie bloomers. She looked absolutely adorable, don't you think?

We ate dinner first, and then it was time for presents.

Lots of presents.

Remi enjoyed taking the tissue paper out of the bags, and we are still enjoying all of her wonderful gifts.

Spoiled much!

I was worried that Remi wouldn't get in to her cake very much; Reece was super shy at her first birthday, but I should have known better.

Girlfriend loves food, and her cake was no exception!

I think she liked it.

Reece had a fun time playing with her friends and cousins.

We were so blessed to have so many friends and family come to help us celebrate this precious little girl! It was a great time!
