  8. what ponytail holders do you use for Ivy's pigtails? i've tried those teeny tiny clear ones, and although they hold her hair they are are a huge pain and lily hate's when i do it because it pulls on her hair and hurts. ;-( was wondering what your secret is!

  25. This post is BRILLIANT. One of your best. It shows exactly how intelligent, creative, and humble you are...with only a few words.

    P.S. Where on earth did you get that mustache?

  26. Where do you even get on of those, lol, its so fun!

    You definitely need to check out this song, it reminds me of the pictures/writing you've shared about your daughter Ivy. :) I think you would like it, so I had to share. Its called "Watermelon Juice" by Lynn O'Brien. You can hear it at http://www.lynnobrienmusic.com/ if you click 'listen now', or itunes.

    Hope you enjoy it!

  27. I was scrolling through your ivy posts (i forget why I started) and came to this and was so glad to read it again today.

    and I love that mustache on a stick. And your skill for choosing just the right photos to put with your words.

  28. oh, look. I'm back again. Followed your tweet and I love this post so much - the message and the photos alike (I could eat Ivy) that I had to leave another comment. One of my favorites of yours.
