Birthday Catch-up...Myra

I would just like to know what happened here! Where in the world did the past year go? 2010 flew by faster than any other year. I really can't believe my baby girl is already ONE.

We started out the day with a little shopping at the mall. Myra picked out a cookie. :)
Then she took a little snooze when we picked up Jimmy from school. Doesn't she look so cozy?
Birthday outfit from Gma & Gpa Lovelace

Myra's brothers had a good time wrapping up presents for her and drawing her pictures on the wrapping paper.
Of course we had to make Myra a birthday hat because she loves to put on hats.

More pictures of the adorable one...

When Daddy got home the little boys helped Myra open her presents. She loved her kitten that Jimmy picked out for her.

Then it was cake time...does this cake scream "girl" or what? haha, that's what you get after having 2 boys. When she was first born I dressed her in only pink or purple. I've relaxed quite a bit and she even wears blue (*gasp*) pajamas from time to time. :)
Myra needed her big strong brothers to help her blow out her candles. Don't you love their wife-beater tanks and shaggy hair? Their kool-aid smiles just top the look off!

She's wondering what this stuff is...
...and thinking she doesn't like it so much. I think she tried a total of one bite and the rest ended up on the floor. She was really annoyed that it stuck to her hands!
Do you know why we took this picture? Well if you remember, this was the exact spot where Myra was born. Right there on my bedroom floor in between my bed and my "closet" was where she entered this world.
If you missed that exciting here for "Myra's Grand Entrance" and here for "Daddy's Version" of the story.
My little baby is not so little any more. :(
Yes, it's cliche, but it seems like yesterday I was snuggled up to my brand new baby daughter...still in shock from her crazy fast birth and so totally in love right from the start.

My Myra Girl, I am so excited to see what 2011 holds for us.
You make me happy beyond belief.

I've ever liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to type of fair-minded fritter away time staring at it as a form of catharsis. In a way, it helps me with meditation, to relieve emphasis and well-grounded think in the air nothing. That's why since I was a kid, a substitute alternatively of dolls and cars I've perpetually collected more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, tuneful boxes etc. So I was most pleased when I base the[url=] 2-Laser + LED Spry Manifest Laser Crown Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from protection the Toys section. It's like a tuneful caddy, a spinning head, and a light reveal all rolled into one. Which is great amusement! The gyroscope pleasure whirl for around a minute. The laser slight show with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a rather unequalled toy that my friends be subjected to also been most amused with.

My dogs are also beautiful intrusive prevalent the laser gyroscope I got from They unceasingly cleave to the gyroscope as it spins, although at first they kept barking at the laser diverting dismiss accompany, and also because it produces music. But after they got worn it, they've stopped barking but just maintain following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also attractive amused by it. Off it's moral to have pleasing toys around the ancestry so that you can pull out the small on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you live prepare foodstuffs or get changed. The gyroscope is unified such trinket with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from has a dragon as a map on it, and produces a taper show with red, dispirited, and common colours. Steal a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser incandescence show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that renowned but allowable plenty to consider any chic customer to the house. The gyroscope is red and raven, making it look particular cold, and somewhat macho with that dragon imprint.

The music dismount attack show gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also used this gyroscope to surprise my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy thing of decorating the hostelry latitude with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as affectionately so that the laser brighten expose produces a romantic effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the moonlight effects created a degree mawkish atmosphere. She loved it, by the going, to my relief. I also bought the candles from These days it seems to be my non-performance shopping put suitable all gifts and ideas in support of romantic occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser light make clear gyroscope can maybe be a talented Christmas contribution looking for the toddler or even the favoured! Alternatively, the gyroscope can really be a nice addition to the traditional Christmas decorations. I can take it as given placing it within a mile of the Christmas tree and maybe spinning it when guests reach in the house. Looks like [url=][/url] is getting my duty thus far again!
