Clara is 2 1/2 months old, loves squeaky toys, cuddling, and harassing her new big brother Einstein. Einstein's not too sure of her just yet, but hopefully they'll be best friends sooner rather than later! In the meantime she's keeping us all on our toes!

Life Via Instagram: March 2012

I love Instagram, although I currently don't have an iPhone so I just have to use my iPod. No worries, an iPhone is on my list of things to acquire this year. :)

Here's my life via Instagram in March, 2012. It's clear three very important things in my life are Einstein, food, and the beautiful sunsets we get to see every night out our back window. Enjoy!

(Starting with the large photo and moving clockwise: Einstein doing his neighborhood watch thing (there's a giant dog in that little body, I promise you!), Einstein at the vet asking "can't we just leave and pretend this never happened?", and Einstein sunbathing on the deck during Spring Break.

(Starting in upper left corner: Banana "ice cream" - love ice cream but watching your figure? Freeze some peeled bananas, throw them in the food processor. It will make a scary noise, but it won't break. Add a little almond milk or soy milk, keep processing until the consistency resembles soft serve ice cream. Delicious!, Frozen coffee from Corridor - my fave!, Cadbury Eggs - can anyone resist these?, and Izze - delicious fruit juice + sparkling water, great if you're trying to give up or eliminate soda.

I love where we live! These sunsets are amazing.

And just a random photo of the tulips I bought, but they died. :( I have a seriously black thumb.

Featured: Forever Handmade + Avery and Savannah

A week or so ago, my adorable neighbors/models Avery and Savannah came down for a photo session featuring headbands from the lovely Andrea at Forever Handmade (visit her site HERE - I am super excited about the crowns she's offering now!). She makes a ton of newborn headbands, blankets, etc but also makes beautiful headbands for older girls as well. Here are some of my favorite shots - huge thanks to Avery and Savannah for modeling, and for their moms for taking some time out of their Saturday! Also thanks to Andrea for providing the headbands! :)
