The girl that stole our heart

Sofia Vincenza turns 7 today! March 29, 2007 seems like just yesterday. Anthony and I getting ready to become parents and had no idea what we were getting into.

My happy little girl. So silly, determined, creative and whom I can not thank enough for making me a mama.

Love you Sofia mia.

Partners in crime. Not having a sister myself, I love seeing their relationship grow. Ups and downs can't keep them apart and I love them so much together.

And Sofia who never wanted to hold a newborn, so in love with her baby brother. Wants to hold him all the time, reads to him, helps with diaper changes, sings to him when he's fussing. I now love that she always said no to everyone else's newborn and asking for her to hold them but she can't get enough of Mario.

First birthday celebration with cugino Chase and Zio Scotty.

I love who this girl is so much.

Strawberry Oat Bars

Delicious! Easy! Sort of healthy!

You know you want to try these for yourself. I make them every week. I'm not exaggerating. I'm addicted.

Mario's 1st 3 month pictures

Just like we did with the girls, we are taking monthly pictures with Mario each month on the day of his birth. We stopped at 12 months with the girls but  take a picture on their birthday each year. I love seeing how much they change from month to month. Actually, it kind of makes me sad at how much they do change in a month when they're babies and then it blows my mind how much they change in a year.
Growing too fast.

Rest in Peace Uncle Italo

The service for Anthony's Uncle was today and it was a beautiful send off to a great man. Lots of memories with him and thankful to have had him in our life.
Uncle, you are and will be missed.

International Women's Day and my girls

March 8th is International Women's Day and while I've never really made a point of purposely celebrating this day, this day I felt like I owned it to myself. I began the day with a couple girlfriends at an early breakfast, followed by some family time at home and then I took my two little girls out for manicures.
I've always done their nails at home and while we have fun doing it together, I was excited to give them their first salon experience.
They loved it!

My girly-girls.
