Birthday Sunshine

misha lulu + missoni


I really call Ivy by several names: Ivy, Ivylarue, Lucy, Lulu, and Sweet Pea.

She answers to them all.


Today she is three. Three. THREE. Born at home just like I'd dreamed.

THREE.


her Misha Lulu for Hello, Kitty birthday dress oh yes



if you steal my sunshine
 so reminds me of if you steal my sunshine 



Oh yeah and we had cupcakes.

Ivy and Asher have birthdays just two lovely days apart. A corner of my heart has a feeling these two will always be that close. They just have to.

  20. I'm having a hard time with this 3 business. First Ivy and Asher, then my Baby Dude in 12 days. What gives? Why do they have to get so big? Sigh.

  23. Happy birthday, Ivy!

    I can't believe she's already three. I also can't believe she has the countenance of someone much older. She seems equal parts wise and whimsical.

  28. What gorgeous babies you've made. So happy for you that you had the birth experience you wanted. I had that with my second child and still cherish the memory 20 years later.

  31. I can't believe she's three. Three. Watching her grow has been the best part of my blogging career thus far. You have been, and always will be, the one I look to for inspiration, words of wisdom, beauty, and just a kind smile in this crazy blogosphere. So happy third birthday to Ivy, a little girl that made me want to be a girl-mom, even though I never thought it'd be me.

  42. I just really can't believe it. I think I said that exact same thing last year. And the year before. I remember waiting expectantly for her and hearing she came and reading about her over and over. What the world be like without Ivy? I mean, it was waiting for her!

    Happy belated!!!

  47. Happy Belated Birthday Ivy. I totally remember reading her birth story right after she was born. Cannot believe it was three years ago. Just told my bub that I am amazed at how quickly time is rushing by us -- my babies are growing up too fast!

    ReplyDelete
  48. She is SO gorgeous Steph and her clothes are always so precious and perfect for her.

    I'm sorry I'm SO horribly late to wish her a Happy Birthday. Looks like it was wonderful!!
