Little Mister Rotund

As per my last post, I am continuing my mini-saga about my mini bridal party members! If you are an avid follower of this blog, then I have no doubt that you will recognize the youngest member who was officially added the latest:

Look at those gorgeous eyes. And nose. And mouth. So hard to resist. When I videochat with this guy, I want to reach into the screen and steal him from my sister. Fortunately, even Steve Jobs has yet to come up with a way to do that, otherwise I would find a grouchy 4-month-old in my hands. Aside from the obvious fact that I don't know how to take care of a baby 24 hours a day, I would also have no source of food for him, and BOY DOES HE LOVE HIS FOOD. Even when he is chilling 5 minutes after a feeding, he will stare at anything resembling something that could be safely consumed, particularly if someone is in the middle of consumption. I hope he doesn't eat his way out of the wagon. No, I'm serious, I hope he doesn't eat so much he gets too big for it.

Little Miss Sassy

While invitation-sending time is coming up quickly, I still have a weddingless week left in New York to deal with, so I decided that I would do a series of quick and adorable little quips about my three mini attendants. I still have yet to find the perfect photo of one of them for the website, but I am planning to catch her in an enrapturing and natural gleeful expression come VBS week. For today, however, I will spend a bit to talk about her sister.

Dear everybody, meet Chloe:

She is one of those blessed souls who can't help but be brutally authentic. Her mother tells me stories of when, in a fit of anger, she will convincingly proclaim, "I no love you!" only to turn around minutes later, roll her eyes and confess, "Okay mommy, I love you." She is such a bundle of attitude and energy packed into a 28 pound body, and I'm told that a shy hug from her means she loves you times a million. When her ridiculously cute face gives a big smile, my heart just melts. Yes, even when it's a mischievous one. While I am a fan of a smooth wedding procession, a secret part of me hopes she will display one of her playful antics as she tromps down the aisle to add a little spice to the whole day.
