A Big First But Definitely Not The Last...

We had so much fun this past weekend at Cupcake's dance recital!!! She did so well and we were all so proud of her! I was so nervous because at both dress rehearsals she did not want to perform she had what we like to call a mini melt-down...I may or may not have bribed her to get her to not be scared the night of the performance. I kept saying "are you going to be happy or sad at the recital??? If you are happy you will get some pretty pink flowers after..." Needless to say the bribe did its job! So well actually that she almost peed her pants on stage!!! Haha it was the most comical thing I have ever witnessed with this child yet! She was trying so hard to do the moves but kept pulling a Michael Jackson and holding herself...at one point she was holding the front and back! We all could not help but laugh and wait patiently. I am sure all the Mom's thought she has the worst parents, that didn't take her to the restroom before hand. Oh but don't you worry anyone that knows Cupcake knows that its a 24/7 thing...it might possibly be a nervous habit and I did take her before! I also asked her if she needed to go afterwords and she said "no". Needless to say we were just thrilled and proud as could be that she stayed up there and kept everyone laughing and I mean everyone!!! I had lots of strangers and friends tell me that she stole the show...as they say in show business...The show must go on!!! This was such a fun first moment for our family but definitely not the last!

Monkey's are Boys and Gorilla's are Girls...

We had a fun day at playgroup last week with a trip to the Zoo! We were small in numbers in comparison with other playgroup days but it was such a nice day and the company was a blast as usual!!! Monkey Man loved just riding in the stroller and Cupcake loved the Monkeys and gorilla's and kept telling me that Monkey's were boys and Gorilla's are girls!!! haha so darling...she is absolutely in the middle of the boy/girl phase. For example a cute little story...we were with my Mom at the Mall and walked into Victoria's Secret and Cupcake says "Grandma boys don't live here!!" It was so funny I couldn't help but laugh...Well we took tons of pics at the Zoo so there is quite an overload to follow!

Us getting ready to ride the train...

Cupcake of course had to ride the Gorilla on the CarouselThis cute Monkey came right up to the window when the kids were standing there!

The cute girlies...Avery, Brea, Anya, and Cupcake...These three were so cute on the train...we told them to hold on so they held each others hands!
