17 toddlers, 29 adults, one happy third birthday party.  Great day all around.  Now it’s time for some adult beverages.

I was updating Chloe’s iPod (whatever, yes I know) and I discovered that she apparently knows how to use the camera.  I found over 600 (!) pictures in the Camera Roll.  These are some of my favorites.

The iPod.  So easy even a two-and-a-half to three year old can figure it out.

Three years old today!  Chloe has been interested in rockets and space lately so she got a rocket ship and two books about space.  One of which, Curious George and the Rocket, was written in 1957 and still holds up.

The big party is this Sunday…18 toddlers…stay tuned…

I took Chloe to the park this evening at the end of a very full and long holiday weekend.  She spent the better part of an hour rocking her baby to sleep.  It’s like she knew I also needed a break.

Chloe got to pick out her new big girl bed from IKEA today.  Daddy got to put it together.  Mommy helped.  Now we’re all ready for bed.

Chloe hung out with her Cousin Owen today.  They went swimming and she gave him her old scooter and showed him how to honk the horn.

Yeah I kinda failed at dinner tonight.
But it’s like a billion degrees and mommy is on a business trip and one-third of this is peas.

Chloe took her Keith Haring dog for a walk today.  She also decided to wear every single piece of plastic jewelry ever.

First time Chloe is old enough to play at the kids table at the UWS Apple store.  Kinda loving this moment.

Last day of school!

Chloe “graduated” from pre-school today and they had a little ceremony.  Today is also the first time she has ever worn her hair in pigtails.  So win/win all around.

Making Blueberry Muffins with Grandma Vivi.  Chloe is inspecting each blueberry individually to make sure none of the “yucky” ones make it into the final product.
