Jude is two! TWO!

Can you believe it? Jude. Jude Jude Jude. It has been two whole years since the glorious day of your birth!

Brooke was out of town on business yesterday (the actual birthday) so we celebrated with cupcakes and presents on Friday. And then we celebrated a little more yesterday without Daddy. We had delicious Birthday Cake Pancakes for breakfast, visited the Natural Science Center, and in the afternoon we went out for milkshakes.

So I think he had a good birthday; it's always a little hard to tell with stoic Jude. He's so sweet though. We all adore him. I'm so happy he's in my world.

Anyway, here are some more photos! The cupcakes are probably the most beautiful-looking and worst-tasting thing I've ever baked. The birthday banner is our traditional baby/toddler bday decor. And lastly, feast your eyes on the fruits of Jude's birthday portrait sesh.

Happy birthday Jude!

Smells like teen spirit

Guess who's back, back again? It's me Brooks (as some people call me despite reading my name on my business card). I feel like sharing with you the truth about germs: They are EVERYWHERE EVEN IN UR HOUSE AND ON YOUR HANDS SO WASH THEM 4-7 TIMES A MINUTE OR YOU WILL BE LIKE THOSE GROSS PPL IN CONTAGION AND SOMEONE BEHIND ME SNEEZED IN THAT MOVIE AND I ASKED THAT PERSON TO LEAVE. my arms are raised because i believe in song.

Brooks- Hey Isobel.
I- wut.
Brooks- Guess who's birthday it is today?
I- Yours.
Brooks- And Stella's
I- yeah right
Brooks- you don't believe me?
I- nope
Stella- Ruh Roh.

That shirtless kid was the ringleader in the rare photograph of an undercover fingerpainting money laundering front. All monies collected went to buy Lindor Truffles.
Girl, girl, shirtless Casper the ghost.
The PA Shiffs paid us a visit and left one of their kids here for what they called "collateral for a really big deal" and promised to get her in April "when the showers will bring May flowers; wink, wink". It was awkward.
