Somerset is 4, Rosalie is 3 Months!

What a wonderful day it has been for our family. Our beautiful daughter turned 4 today! This is the first birthday that she has had where she invited her own friends and was truly excited about this being her special day. For the second year in a row, MLP was her theme. Our sweet girl was blessed with a day filled with friends, pony presents and fun.

I bought dress up clothes so the kids could feel like ponies. They wore tu-tus with tulle tails,fake hair headbands with tulle ears and jewelry. We brought a pony castle and ponies to the park, and the kids had a blast with that. We also had a game of horse-shoes and a treasure hunt.

Leo's friends (the brothers), all had fun playing in the sprinklers and on the play equipment at the park (A.M. Kennedy). We had the park all to ourselves and it was a gorgeous day! Perfect for Somerset's party.

Somerset received so many wonderful pony gifts that I know she will be playing non-stop. She was also blessed to have family with her. Both Grandma Laurel and Grandma Cassandra were around for the fun, along with Aunt Tiff, Uncle Martin and Aria. Maya, Ellie, Lee and Simon were Somerset's guests, but we also had the rest of the Kunz, Kam and Koch family members with us. Somerset really felt like a princess.

We have had so many fun visitors as well. Uncle David and Jen came to visit last week. We went to the Japaneses Gardens, the Rose Garden, the Renaissance Fair and the Zoo. The kids fell in love with Uncle D and Jen. Also, Grandma Laurel came out for Somerset's birthday. We had fun at the Pittock Mansion and just hanging out.

Rosalie is the most amazing baby. Other than gas/tummy issues, she is so easy. She only fusses if there is a good reason. I have been able to take her on adventures because she goes with the flow. She is mellow and sweet and we are completely in love!

She has not been sleeping well at night. We start her off in the bassinet at night and then she transitions to the bed. Joe said it's like cuddling a pot-bellied pig. She makes so much noise and scoots all around. We got her started on Axid about a week ago and are hoping that helps.

Rosalie smiles a ton and has giggled once for Joe...I missed it!!!! She loves her family and is getting more fun every day. Her skin is so soft and she has the prettiest blue eyes.

Leo amazes us with his intelligence. He already has wowed his 1st grade teacher! He loves first grade and I LOVE having him in school all day.

Somerset has really excelled at St. Matt's. Putting her in preschool 3 days a week was the best decision we could have made. She loves her friends and has been learning so much. Her behavior has improved dramatically as well.

We are so lucky to have this wonderful family. I feel so blessed.
