Liv’s ‘Big Girl’ Room

When I thought about my daughters bedroom I always knew I wanted Pottery Barn furniture and minimal pink. To me, Pottery Barn is quality furniture that is worth every dollar. Liv’s dresser is PB and was actually my dresser growing up – purchased in 1998! It has been in my parents house, my first apartment, first, second, third homes and is now in the fourth home – in my daughters room! The rocking horse was mine from when I was Olivia’s age that my mom had repainted to match Olivia’s furniture – she LOVES it.

I’ve always been my ‘mother’s daughter’ but didn’t start to notice it until I became a mother, myself. I find peace in organization (thank you, Mom). Olivia’s room looks like this 99% of the time. (The 1% occurred today while taking these pictures when she pulled every diaper out of the bins in her closet and rearranged them… tried to put them back in but on top of each other.) While some Moms might read this and roll their eyes, roll away. Liv may only be 20 months old but she puts her stuffed animals in her bed or her basket every day, she puts her clothes in her laundry basket and loves to throw her diapers in the diaper genie. TEACH THEM YOUNG!  Thanks, Mom!

Give it a rest

I went to Zoo Miami yesterday and while enjoying ‘my babies’ I ventured over to see the newest baby, Titan – he is a 6 foot tall 130 lb. giraffe…not big? How bout if I told you those were his measurements AT BIRTH — yes, the female in this video is the mother of Titan, she also gave birth to Marlee just a few months ago. After watching this gentleman try to ‘court’ Kita… I secretly yelled at him to leave her alone .. she has given birth twice in the past 4 months and probably wants her alone time… I spoke with a friend who is a keeper at Zoo Miami and she said that Kita in fact WANTS it, that giraffes go through a postpartum breeding period where they feel that they need to be doing it again. The animal kingdom is CRAY.

Here are a few more pictures from yesterdays much needed Zoo visit:

We are very happy to announce…Aside from the fear in his face in this photo…Marley lived through his vet appointment!! Unlike his usual clawing his way out the door he was a big boy and took his shot with no tears, no howling and no problems! WOOHOO to our growing boy!
