Ryan and Rebecca go to the Madison Zoo!

I have so many plans for this summer of fun… just trying to cram everything in before Ryan starts preschool in the fall! Ryan has been to the zoo before… this same Madison zoo, actually. But that was two years ago (wow!) and he definitely doesn’t remember it. He was thrilled to go this time and see the animals in person that we’re always talking and reading about. Rebecca was excited, too, and couldn’t stop staring and squealing at the the animals.

I think it’s

Happy Summer! A Dickey family photo overload!

Hope everyone had a fun and relaxing 4th of July! We usually spend it at the lakehouse, but this year we got the itch for home improvement… and we stayed home all weekend to clean, organize, and paint! Ah, the things that excite you when you get “old,” haha.

We spent the 4th of July at a friend’s pool for a cookout. Ryan and Rebecca made their own festive shirts and were in bed long before the fireworks 😉 The picture above is the best I could get of the two of them

Pretty in Pink 1st birthday party

This post is SO ridiculously late, it’s embarrassing. Rebecca is 1 day shy of turning 15 months old and her 1st birthday party was three months ago. Basically, I took about 524302 photos and dreaded the task of 1) editing them and 2) trying to choose what photos to publish. AH! This will probably take me an hour to write because I still haven’t chosen… but at least I’ve edited! The cup is HALF FULL, people. On to Pretty in Pink…

Straight from the mouth of my 3 year old

I saw this awhile ago on Little BGCG’s blog, but at the time Ryan refused to answer any questions, haha. I just got him to sit down and chat with me… some of these questions he came up with an answer right away, but some of them I had to give him a big list of things and he picked one (like favorite holiday and favorite toy).

1. What is your favorite color? green and purple and blue and orange and yellow

2. What is your favorite toy? my bike

3.

newborn baby photos: what’s perfect?

Newborn baby photos are the most precious things on the entire planet. You can’t look at one without an “awWWWWWWWWwwwWW!” escaping your mouth and your ovaries twining a bit for another squishy pink cheeked babe of your own. With the capabilities of the internet and new social sites like pinterest it’s impossible not to see the cutest baby photos ever. I think it’s a contest…. how can we make the CUTEST PHOTO EVER? How can we spread MORE BABY FEVER?! What else can we put this baby in?! We’ve tried a wagon…. a bucket…

My baby girl is one: a letter and birthday photos

Ohhhh, Rebecca. Where do I start? It’s such an exciting milestone… to turn one… but it’s hard for your mama, too. The first year flew by so quickly and now my baby girl isn’t a baby anymore. It’s bittersweet. But even if you aren’t a “baby” anymore, you’ll always be MY baby <3

 

You know, before I had you I hated princess stuff. I was never into Barbies as a little girl and I just didn’t get in to the frills and tiaras… I desperately wanted to have a

Rebecca’s 11 months

Dear baby girl,

You’re just a little sweetheart… the other day at the children’s museum another mom asked me if you were “7, maybe 8 months old?” You’re just a petite little girl, like your mama! You’re not walking yet, but you love standing and cruising along furniture or walking with a push toy. Just recently you’ve started attempting to stand unassisted! It won’t be too much longer!

You also love to climb… you can go all the way up the stairs on your own (with someone right
