So as I mentioned, this past weekend we celebrated Isabelle's third birthday. Usually birthdays are a great time to get lots of great photos of J and I with the kiddos, but not this time. We decided to put the girls down for a nap early before everyone arrived. It seemed like a great idea considering how my girls are when they don't get naps. However, I failed to think about how they might respond to going to bed with no one here and waking up to a house full of people. They both were a little overwhelmed.
This is Isabelle right after waking up from her nap. She sat on my lap, quietly, for what seemed like forever. Isabelle is hardly ever still and quiet at the same time. It is the only semi-good picture of us together at her party.
I will post more pics and details from the party next week, so be sure to check back in for some awesome Elmo cake pics!
Also, if you have trouble remembering to get yourself in some photos with your kids, you should start the Embrace movement as well! Check out Emily's blog here. She is great!
