she wore this home from the hospital
and this on her first birthday
today, she turns 9….
and though she stole our hearts from the very first day,
she’s blooming into the most beautiful little girl!
who just happens to love building lego castles with her daddy…
and learning to sew with her mommy…..
she is some kind of wonderful!
happy birthday emme, we love you all the way to the moon and back!
p.s. in case you missed it on the first perusal, there’s a sneak peak of studio 8 and an action shot of my favorite bicep. go ahead, look again.

  1. Happy Birthday to your little girl! My oldest boy just turned 9 last month. It's such a great age.

    Love your Studio 8! Those floors are gorgeous. And that bicep – reminds me of my favorite bicep. 😉

  2. aww, happy birthday to emme, and i love the way your girl cave/studio 8 to infinity and beyond is turning out!! i can't believe how quick you are. we are purging this house… it s.t.r.e.s.s.e.s. me out!!
    miss you! have a good week,

  3. Great photos!! I LOVE the angle of the one of Emme with the cupcake!! Still very eager to see studio 8!!! Is that the name you settled on??

  4. Sweet post! I have that same iron hanger & love it! Quick question- how did you cover your craft table with the polka dots? My craft table needs a major facelift and it won' stain or strip because it isn't real wood!

  5. Happy Birthday Emme! My Ashley turns 9 this week also . . . this Thursday. It looks like the year 2000 was a very good year!

  6. Happy Birthday Emme! Can't wait to see you on Friday and celebrate your special day! Have a great week! Can't wait to see Studio 8 in person…My girls will love spending time in there with you all!!

  7. Happy Birthday, Emme! Great castle! Looks like you're enjoying your new space with Mom. Great pictures and a great room. Happy Birthday Week!

  8. Happy bday to Emme!

    And, am I mistaken, or was there chalk writing on the wall of Studio 8? Did you actually wait the 3 days for the paint to set? I know there's no way I would have made it to day 3.

  9. Of course I didn't miss the bicep…and Studio 8 is coming along nicely!! Wish you could teach me to sew, your girls are SO SO lucky to have you for a mom. Happy Birthday Emme!!

  10. Cute black and white polka dot on the desk surface. Is that contact paper, paint, or what?

    They grow up way-way-way too fast.

  11. I didn't miss the bicep, but thought it was strange that it was with the comment about playing legos with her daddy. I'm glad you clarified it at the end because I would have been trying to reconcile that bicep with Steve in my mind all night. I know, pitiful.

  12. This post is beautiful….loved the pictures…and the colors…the sewing together…so sweet.

    I can't wait to get my little Keira home from China – I'm itchin' and scratchin' to do some girly stuff…I've got my little guy, and he's all BOY! Tee hee!

  13. love the cupcake picture – is it bad that I did not need you to point out the bicep before I noticed? hee hee
    gonna love that girly studio
