Big Backpack

I tend to forget just how little Elise really is. When I’m around her, she seems larger than life. However after I dropped her off at school this morning, it hit me like a ton of bricks that she’s tiny! Her backpack looked absolutely massive on her, and I couldn’t stop being amazed at how her tiny stick legs were walking, taking her to her classroom. Taking my daughter to school every day is such a joy.

Elise’s 7th Birthday

Miles basically imitates Elise every day. Tonight, Elise had a 7 candle on her cupcake, so Miles reeeeally wanted a candle on his cupcake too, hence the tiny crayon-looking candle in this photo (just to the left of the 7 candle).

The big news from this birthday is the addition of Zelda Ruby Binkowski to the family. Zelda is a beautiful and graceful Betta fish. She was so happy in her new environment she swam a hundred laps around the bowl for over an hour.
