Happy birthday to my lovely, strong, amazing, curious, beautiful daughter, Colette Gaelle!  She was definitely a surprise 2+ years ago…I had a difficult time after I discovered I was pregnant.  I absolutely cannot imagine my life without her and I am so thankful that we are graced by her unique personality & determined spirit.  It is really special to see her strong connection to her siblings, especially the bond she has with Frankie.  I always wanted a sister and I am touched to see their love for one another.

halloween 2012 – the girls

frankie asked to be a flower fairy for halloween and also decided that coco should be a ‘mini fairy’. i made frankie’s costume and scored a brand new tinkerbell costume for coco on craigslist for $5…3 out of 4 homemade costumes is pretty good!

walk to jamison square

i love walking over the bridges. the girls and i decided to meet our friends at jamison square fountain last week. it was a beautiful & hot day…perfect for playing in the water. we walked over the broadway bridge and enjoyed a gorgeous view.

frankie & gigi had a great time together.

frankie again.

i used to take my boys to omsi (oregon museum of science & industry) all the time, but when frankie was born i became overwhelmed and we took a break. the boys are now old enough to wander through the exhibits alone and the little ladies are really enjoying the play area.
