It's Eatin Time

My lil girl is 4 months and already eating...i just can't beleive this my lil chubby wubby...I started her on rice cereal this month and she has been loving it I can't get it in her mouth fast enough hahahaha this is a fun stage having them try different food and getting them use to eating. This week I'm going to start putting bananas in with her formula and see how it goes. Im pretty sure this lil one will love it she is already a much better eater than my other lil bundle of joy. Its so fun to watch my lil ones grow and how every stage of there lives are so different yet so fun and amazing to watch and learn with each one. Everyday that goes by I am so happy i get to be with these lil ones and watch them grow and shine in there own way. ok enough mushyyyy stuff i just can't help it i love my little ones...

Here's miss Avalynn Rose eating in style with that beautiful lil messy smile of hers its so funny to see her in the high chair she is so tiny and barley fits in it. I usually feed her in her bouncy makes it a little easier.

Ahhh look at her how adorable...

I can't leave these two out of my post the other love of my lives if I just post pics of Ava my hubby seems to think she is my favorite oh men they just don't understand I have to get all the pics in of Ava's 1st year for her scrapbook but why explain he still wont i just let him think what he wants....

I had a lady on etsy created these "sweet pink lemonade" labels and I wrapped them around mason jars so guest could sip on pink lemonade. I also got pink and white straws from esty and added those to the cups...

I have Twins....

So over the week I was able to take Ava for her 4 month professional pictures that I do every month for her scrapbook because I'm totally not a good photographer. This month I decided to put on the same outfit Sidnee wore for her 4 month pictures with a lil bit of different up to date changes to prove my daughters look like twins hence the title...and no u were probably thinking I was having twins but not this mamma yet =) I'm still enjoying my bundle of joy....

Sidnee at 4 months oh so how I miss her at this age I wish I could turn back time....

A collage of Sidnee

Lil miss Avalynn smiling away gosh she just melts my heart like her sister....everyday I look that these two and feel so blessed...

Avalynn 4 months old

So what do you think don't like look like twins? Ok so maybe not identical but pretty damn close....I think Sidnee looks more like her daddy, attitude and all hahhaha and Ava more like me laid back ( i know ur laughing right now laid back) yeah right I was never laid just very chubby wubby and content as a baby.....

I wish these two would stop growing these adorable lil ones makes me want to have many more babies.... and ya I said babies....hahaha

Happy weekend Everyone!!!!

Love Being a Mommy....

Being a mommy is one of the greatest things that has happened in my life.  This mother's day was special just like every mother's day is. Mother's Day is one time of the year where we get pampered and awarded for our awesome mommie duties...hahahah ya like my husband really does that well he at least tries. Every mothers day I miss my mommy because she lives so far however get the opportunity to spend it with my cousins and auntie (my 2nd mommy). This year we did a small brunch at my cousins house and enjoyed some yummp breakfast.This was a little different for us but it was fun we got to spend the entire morning together eating and drinking mimosas.  It was delicious!!!

Some of the awesome girls in my daughter and her famous smile....i love her!!!

Our lovely men and kiddos....what would we do without them =)

My precious newest addition of course posing

Okay I put these picture in the post cause these are flowers I made for my auntie for mother's day and I was practicing for my sister n laws upcoming shower next weekend. What I did was run over to the grocery store and bought a bouquet of flowers arranged them my self in a mason jar and wrapped tulle around the jar and with a bow and there u have it a beautiful centerpiece. I thought about going to a florist to have it done however it costs so much money and hey why not do it myself. It was really easy and cheaply done...What do u think?

I will need to do 6 centerpieces for the shower so talking with my client who just did her sisters shower said u can buy like 3 bundles of flowers and they sell fillers as well at the grocery store so a bundle of that for all around 50 dollars. That works for me...a big thanks to my client jenn

Looking forwarded to the wonderful weekend ahead of me Parties Parties Parties...

Happy Weekend to Everyone!!!

It's A Girl

It's that time again another party in the Villalpando family. Tony's cousin Nathalie is having a baby girl and we wanted to have her a shower before this little bundle of joy pops its way into this world. So all us cousins got together and planned her a shower in a week. With lots to do we did such a great job in such lil time. Pink and more Pink was the theme to this baby shower.

Me and Mrs. Nathalie

Sidnee in front of the stork that say's "baby" which sidnee insisted on telling me it was a duck....and would say quack quack...hahahah

The decor oustide...thought i would get a picture before everyone arrived. With such lil time we didn't get to rent tables and chairs so we used what was around the house at my aunties. Got pink table cloths, baby shower sign, centerpeices, a clothes line with girl clothing, and pink hanging decoration and put it all together not bad for a week of planning. And if you all know me it takes me months to plan a party cause i have to have everything perfect.

We used Ava's baby bath to serve pink welch's in it and added ice. It looked so adorable and totally added to the whole baby theme.

A sign we used in the backyard for decor.

Centerpieces I made that were so easy. I went to the dollar store and purchased tissue boxes, white wrapping paper and flowers. I wrapped the white paper around tissue box, wrapped pink tulle around the sides that I had at home, and hot glued a pink flower to the middle. The shoes I have sitting on a box where Ava's shoes that didn't fit her anymore or ones she never wore. Got this idea from a friend of mine and loved it. Was very easy and cheap to make.

Did a clothes line of Ava's clothes that she wore 1 time for decoration and then gave it to the expecting mom to keep for her lil bundle of joy.

A dessert table I put together real fast when u walk in the door. A diaper cake was displayed along with brownies, and dipped pretzels for favors that everyone got to take home.

The diaper cake that was made by my cousin. I got the diapers and had this fabric laying around and she put it all together for me. I added a left over flower I had and shoes of Ava to give it a final touch. This was my favorite iteam of the shower I just loved how this turned out simple but very classy.

The brownies me and Sidnee made. We took a box of brownies and added pink and white m&m's

The favors it made which were very simple as well. I bought pretzels and had pink chocolate in my cabinets. So I dipped them and added pearls to give it a lil classy look. I found the "its a girl" tags on the website that were free. U print them out on ur computer and punch them out with a 2" whole punch and there u go tie with some white ribbon.

The delicious cake that was brought by cousin Sandra

The mommy to be witht the cake and ready to open all her lovely gifts she recieved

Can't forget the pink tubs that held all the drinks to tie in the decor
