I know its a bit earlier..

but I have already been brainstorming Kayla's 1st birthday party! I just love to plan parties/ events; bday parties, showers etc!

Since her room is pink and green and I just love those colors (so girly and pretty) I decided to stay with the theme and throw her a "pink and green candy shop bday party"

I got the inspiration from different places online and also from this really cool candy place in New York City called dylans candy bar if you love candy (like me) and happen to be in NYC then you should definitely stop by there!

I was also the very lucky winner of the lovely Mrs Southern Belle Baby awesome WH Hostess giveaway a couple of weeks ago!

I was so excited when I found out that I won! and not only because it was basically my first time ever winning anything, but because it was invitations and cupcake toppers!!!

WH Hostess Has the cutest things for your next party!

here are the invitations and cupcake topper I chose, but Im thinking Im going to order more goodies from there.

am I the only crazy one out there that is  Thinking about their baby's 1st birthday, this early?

what are your plans for baby's 1st birthday party?

from the mouths of babes

I got this in an email trail this morning and I just wanted to share it!

Kids are so sweet.

What Love means to a 4-8 year old . .

Slow down for three minutes to read this. It is so worth it.

Touching words from the mouth of babes.

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds , '

What does love mean?'

The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined
See what you think:

'When my grandmother got arthritis , she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time , even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love..' Rebecca- age 8
'When someone loves you , the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth....'
Billy - age 4
'Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.'
Karl - age 5
'Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.' Chrissy - age 6
'Love is what makes you smile when you're tired.'
Terri - age 4
'Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him , to make sure the taste is OK.'
Danny - age 7
'Love is when you kiss all the time.. Then when you get tired of kissing , you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss'
Emily - age 8
'Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.'
Bobby - age 7 (Wow!)
'If you want to learn to love better , you should start with a friend who you hate , '
Nikka - age 6 (we need a few million more Nikka's on this planet)
'Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt , then he wears it everyday.'
Noelle - age 7
'Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.'
Tommy - age 6
'During my piano recital , I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing that. I wasn't scared anymore.'
Cindy - age 8
'My mommy loves me more than anybody You don't see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.'
Clare - age 6
'Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.'
Elaine-age 5
'Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and
still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.'
Chris - age 7
'Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.'
Mary Ann - age 4
'I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.'
Lauren - age 4
'When you love somebody , your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.' (what an image)
Karen - age 7
'Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn't think it's gross.'
Mark - age 6
'You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you mean it , you should say it alot. People forget.'
Jessica - age 8
And the final one The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry , the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard , climbed onto his lap , and just sat there. When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor , the little boy said , 'Nothing , I just helped him cry'

Happy Friday!!!

Dont have much to post about, but Im just excited because its the weekend!! This week has been a long week at work, so Im just glad that I get to go home after work and cuddle up with my babies. We actually have a pretty eventful weekend coming up, which I will post later.

Hope everyone has a good weekend!!

Here are some random pictures just for fun

I love this picture! is not a very good angle but I had to take a quick snap of their nightly routine

Miss Kayla doing what she does best! getting food all over her,the chair, and mommy

I dont think she was too fond of my aunt's furry friend

Im a walking zombie!

I used to consider myself lucky because my baby girl slept through the night ever since she was 2 months! I would even have to wake her up in the morning so that we could get ready to head out the door for the day!

Well that has totally changed now!! Ever since Kayla got sick a couple of weeks ago,
She has been waking up at night with no intensions of going back to sleep! At first I would go and pick her up, and rock here to sleep ( I know big mistake on my part) but hey my little girl was sick and she needed me to confort her.. Well she is not sick any more!! And she is still waking up, but this time she is wanting to play!!

I have tried the whole letting her cry for a while, but quite frankly that doesn't work very well considering the monitor is right by my head!! And I have also tried going in there and just patting her back(not picking her up) so that she knows I'm there but I will not give in and pick her up!

I know I may sound like a big whiner considering some babies don't sleep thru the night till they get older..( Aka my own son), but I was so used to sleeping!

What gives? Is it her teeth? Is she still hungry,a growth spurt? Or is it just a phase ( crossing my fingers it is)
Whatever it is, sweet baby K, you have to give mommy and daddy a break not to mention your brother sometimes gets woken up too.

Oh well as tired as we are we could never be angry with this sweet little face

I have got to get Tivo

One of my favorite shows started last night!

..YEP I'm a huge Dancing with the stars fan! Unfortunately I watched bits and pieces, because I was putting the kiddos to bed and getting everything ready for the next day. So it would of been nice to use my non existence Tivo to record this! Not to mention my other new favorite show was on around the same time
Gossip Girl! I actually just started liking this show after watching the first two season on DVD.

I did however catch Jake (the bachelor) which surprisingly wasn't that bad, and Shannon Doherty get all freaked out and emotional in front of the audience, I felt so bad for her! I mean can you imagine having that fear and getting up and dancing in front of a live audience! not to mention millions watching on TV!!!
My vote for the night went to Nicole scherzinger! she is gorgeous I think, and she did awesome! Hopefully I will get to see Pam, and Kate battle it out next show!

which one was your favorite DWTS celebrity?

her new favorite Toy is....


Its funny how I take the time to search for the newest, most stimulating/colorful learning toy out there when in reality my baby gets entertain with just about anything simple!

Miss Kayla followed (crawled) me to the kitchen while I was cooking dinner one night and didnt seem very interested to play with any of her own toys.So I gave her some tapperware to play with and keep her distracted for a couple of minutes, oh Boy did she LOVE that! I wish I had video taped this because she was talking and screamimg at her new "toy"

Dont get me wrong she loves all her other toys, she was just very interested, in all this tapperware!

this is actually one of the newest (well, new for her, it used to be Austin's) toy that she is really into now.

oh yeah did I mention she is getting into everything lately!
luckily these are fake:)

There is going to be a new addition to the Fick family very soon!...
Nooo Im not pregnant, but our cousin Erica is, she is having a baby girl next month!! We are all so excited for her and for the kids to have another cousin to play with.

Erica and her husband Matt came over for dinner a couple of weeks ago, and we all decided to have the "daddy to be" get some early practice and feed baby Kayla, and from the looks of it his parenting skills came very naturally! He fed Kayla her meal with no fuss! and trust me, that can sometimes be a little impossible considering our little one is a wiggle worm and cant wait to get out of her chair!

He is going to be a great dad! I can already tell that their little princess will be such a daddy's girl!!

Look at them bonding!

K wouldnt let go of his hand! it was soo aodrable!
