real life / still life no. 03

+ lemon chiffon cake (this must be the season of cakes; never baked so many in my life!)
+ spring has sprung in our town / benji loves to sing the popcorn popping song
+ prepping party favors for a special occasion
+ berries bathing in cream / a little luxury for a busy morning
+ storytime with benji (plus one) is the best time of our day
the mommy book by todd parr is my new favorite find from the library

hope your april has been beautiful so far!

LOVE Todd Parr.
No children of my own, but he's my go-to author for baby shower and birthday gifts for little ones! :) [have to be that "cool aunt Heather," you know?]

we have do's and don'ts by Todd Parr. Each of my kids has memorized it in their toddlerhood as we read it together. I guess it is about time to get Millie going on that one. My favorite line from the book: "Do wear clean underwear. Don't wear it on your head." or maybe: "Do brush your teeth. Don't brush with peanut butter." the kids really get a kick out of the silly don'ts.

This lemon cake makes up for all the lemon cakes you really hoped would be chocolate.

That cake is beautiful! We love "The Mommy Book" as well as "The Daddy Book". They are too cute. I'm definitely the "some mommy who likes to order pizza." ;) I love the pics with your cute adorable tummy! Can't wait to see it in person tomorrow.
