Today, our beloved Peace turned one. (For those of you who are feeling nostalgic and want to revisit the most hilarious and heartwarming birth story ever told, go here.)
Here is how we spent our day.
6:59 am - Peace wakes up and the kids give her an old toy flute of theirs (which is one of the only toys they have left which I haven't sold or given away).
2:06 pm - Vernon made this delicious, healthy cake for the party.
But Ocean wanted to make a cake that Peace could eat, so she made this:
It had avocados, sweet potatoes, peas, and carrots in it.
Let me draw attention to two things in this picture, 1) Ezra's outfit. Good stuff, huh? 2) How Ezra is sticking out his tongue while he concentrates on hitting the ball.
Now, look at what his father is doing with his tongue.
Happy birthday, Peace!
Then, at 4:40 pm, Vern and I went to the movie Inception which was AMAZING and something that everyone in the world should see. I will write about it tomorrow.
We left the kids with my mom and I was telling my mom all sorts of tips about what to do with Peace, how to get her to sleep, etc. And she's smiling at me and says, "You act like I've never taken care of a baby before." And I'm, like, "You've never taken care of this one."
But, apparently, my mom does know what she is doing because all things went swimmingly, and I really shouldn't be so mean to her on this blog anymore. I love you, Mom!
