In (ahem) April, Mia, had her 3rd birthday and since I just had a baby in early March I planned a big surprise for her in advance. I bought an amazing, steal of a deal, Groupon for a Princess Party. The princess of your choosing comes to your home and hosts your party. That's right. All I did was make lunch and buy cupcakes. Easy peasy. Cinderella was Mia's princess of choice at the time so that's who came and Mia was so excited. Cinderella brought princess tiaras to decorate, she gave all the girls a princess make over, and read a story. I loved watching Mia light up when fairy tale became reality. She asked Cinderella where were her glass slippers and her prince. It was priceless. We have got to take this girl to DisneyWorld.

We have a sweet new baby in our house! She was born March 7, 2011. This pregnancy was an experience to say the least. Not an entirely good one either. But the end result is beautiful. I have so much to catch up on but I'm including a few pictures until I can get more time to catch up. If there is ever enough time. Going from one to two has been more challenging than I anticipated. Bailey is sweet and we love watching her little personality unfold. My prediction is she will be like her father. More quiet with a dry sense of humor. The opposite of her wild child sister, the "Entertainer".

We found out last Friday we are having a girl! I just knew we were having a girl so it wasn't a surprise at all. This was our first time getting 3D pictures so it was so exciting seeing her sweet face. We are so excited for Mia to have a sister. Mia really has no clue what is going on and how her life will be changing in March. The joke is on us though. Mia definitely likes all the attention and it will be interesting to see how she adjusts to a sibling. It will be another adventure for the Rasmussen household. As for names, we have NO IDEA! Mia's name was easy because we loved it for a very long time before we were even pregnant with her. Sometimes I stare at her picture trying to figure out what her name should be and I am at a loss. We have time though so we will keep you all posted! It is truly a miracle you can love someone so much that makes you sooo sick.

It's been blazing hot in NC the past few weeks. We have had multiple days of 100 degrees. So hot the pool water is warm and not refreshing. We stay indoors and try to keep cool. My plants are burning up and the grass is basically straw. I love summer anyway.
