When we were home (in Ireland) at Christmas, my Mum had just knit this beautiful sweater vest for Lilah, along with two different style hats to match. She also knit Piggy a teeny tiny matching scarf. Since our little trip to the US (where I picked her up a little denim skirt to wear with it), it's been hard to get her to wear anything but it. It's simply beautiful and Lilah knows it. You should see her twirl and fancy herself wearing it - it's so adorable! In fact, it's times like this that I can really see her brimming with confidence. And that makes me smile, because it wasn't always that way. I kinda wish my Mum had passed on her wonderful knitting talent.
And don't these cupcakes Lilah and I made for the Sunday School Treat yesterday just scream springtime? It sounds wonderful, but in all reality, we got 15cms of snow last night - so spring definitely hasn't arrived around these parts yet, other than in the form of a cupcake! The pink frosting was totally Lilah's choice, I would have been happy to just go with white! But as Lilah would say: "It's not ALL about what Mamas and Babas want!" - which is obviously a direct quote she's heard from us, with her own slant added. Usually she hears it as: "It's not ALL about what little girls want!"
One last photo. Just because our family has a very serious addiction to these Cadbury's Mini Eggs! Thankfully Easter (and Mini Eggs) only rolls around once a year!
