The Birthday Girl

My sweet little Alice turned 2 yesterday! (that's right, she was born on Halloween!)

I mentioned before that Alice, who was born with some pretty serious challenges, took her first independent step back in July. Well, stubborn little thing that she is decided walking wasn't all it was cracked up to be and pretty much refused to take anymore until last week. Here's a short video taken yesterday, on her birthday (please excuse my excitement-induced helium voice):

We're pretty proud of our little miracle (and as you can see, she's pretty proud of herself, too!). ♥

 Of course, both girls had a fun Halloween. Alice was starting to come down with a cold but donned her elephant costume and joined us for a little trick or treating anyway:

And Aidan was the prettiest little lion you ever did see:


In shop news, I'm finally wrapping up a round of custom work and will be making some new items for the shop this week. I'm also going to be listing some gift certificates (the perfect Christmas gift?) in the next day or two.

I hope you all had a safe and spooky Halloween and have a few minutes to relax before the impending holiday rush.

Treats (not tricks!) to all!
