Happy Birthday Auntie E!

We tried calling….we posted on facebook….and now we’re saying it here….

Happy Birthday to the amazing Auntie E!!!!!!!  We can’t wait to see you and give you lots of hugs and kisses – although we should wait until the eye drops have taken effect since Miss A has a case of the pink eye.  That is her present to me on your birthday.  She’s so thoughtful!

Happy Toddler = Happy Mommy

We recently got a phone call from our family therapist checking in on us.  I couldn’t believe it myself, but when I sat on my couch and thought about Miss A and what she has been up to lately, I actually said out loud….”She’s been really nice to me lately!”  With everything going on, I can now add to my list of things that are driving me crazy, a chronic cough and congestion, but I can almost positively take the chronically irrational toddler off that same list!  (knock on wood!)  We all have our moments here in the LK house, but we seem to have gotten into a routine that includes smiling and politeness and compromise!  I can’t express how nice it is to have fun instead of spending all our time in time-out!

This Valentine’s day, Miss A will spend having a party in school, while I am at the Dr getting a better look at this crazy cough.  Don’t be jealous!  I’ll be thinking about this smile all day long though 🙂

Mister LK will be at work and he probably won’t even remember it is the hallmark holiday until he reads this!  But we love him & hope he’s having a great day!

I hope the moody toddler part was the phase, and this happy girl is the more permanent version of my girl!  I’m sure she’s hoping the same thing about me!  It is really curious to think that at 8 months I have finally come out of my moodiness … when I’m the most uncomfortable I’ve been and I’ve been pretty sick and have I mentioned that I haven’t slept more than 3 hours in the last 3 days?!  I really hope I’m not jinxing myself here, and if I am, this post is coming down ASAP!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!  I hope you get to spend it with the one(s) you love!

Mommy &; A

There’s Nothing Like This Love…

ImageHappy Birthday Grandma I.  We love you more than all the sand at all the beaches.  More than all the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on the earth.  We’re so lucky to have the best best friend.  We love you.  Happy Birthday!  Love all the LKs


Happy Birthday to our #1 Niece!

Cousin S turns 4 today!  Holy hell how did that happen?  4 years ago today, we met Auntie H at the hospital at 6am in her purple sweatshirt, and at 9:20am we got our first girl!  Red haired and rosy cheeked.  She was sweet as sugar then, and she hasn’t changed at all!  Well…except that she’s a big girl now, a big cousin, a big sister and a big love!  

We love you cousin S!!!!!!  We hope you have the happiest birthday ever!  We will see you later to party like princesses!
