I love Stella in the springtime....

These are some more pictures I took last weekend while we were staying at my parents' (Mimi and Papa's).  We were soaking up the sun and playing in the yard.  Stella fell in love with a dish towel and has been carrying it around ever since.  Hey, whatever makes her happy is FINE with me!  We are going to head down to Hot Springs tomorrow to see some friends and family.  I don't know if we will make it to the races... Since Tay is from HS he has been to the races wayyy too many times to count.  So I am planning on running around with my friend Taylor (aka Baby Tay) and doing a little flea marketing.  And yes, her name is Taylor too.  I really hang out with a lot of people that aren't named Taylor, it just seems that way!  haha.  Unfortunately, I am going to be missing out on a fabulous Mommies night dinner... I will just have to host at my house next time to make up for it.  Hope you all have a fabulous weekend and try to be safe with this crazy weather coming up!

She found these shoes in Dillard's and wouldn't let them go...
She wore them all over the store!

Taylor just got back into town from Austin.  He went down on Wednesday morning with Sean because his band, A Good Fight, was playing at South By Southwest.  They had a great time!  While Taylor was out of town, Stella and I had a little girl's weekend!  Wednesday we went to the park with Lynne (see last post), Thursday Addie and Anya hosted us for a play date and homemade spaghetti (her specialty!), and Friday night was Dawn's birthday.  That was a crazy night!! hahaha.  Saturday was Cameron's birthday, but she was still out of town for spring break.  I went and stayed with my parents in Rogers.  We went to a new restaurant in downtown Bentonville called Table Mesa.  It is my new favorite mexican restaurant!  I love staying with my parents because they love to take care of us, and they just cannot get enough of Stella.  I took so many more pictures of this weekend, I will post more soon.  I got a new iPhone this weekend too!  All in all, a great weekend.  And absence does make the heart grow fonder!  I was so happy to see my husband... and Stella fell right asleep on her daddy's chest tonight.  All is right in the world :)

A "Swanky" haircut and the park with Liam!

Stella's "official" pics from Stinson, Part 2 (her friends)

Today I went to get Stella from school, and it was such a gorgeous day that we decided we needed to go to the park.  We went to the salon first for a little glamour session (I pretended to cut her hair... well, I actually did cut the very front pieces that are so long) and then she played big girl with my sunglasses!  We headed over to Gulley Park with our friends Lynne and baby Liam, where we laid out on a big blanket and ran around in the sun.  Stella couldn't get enough of the slides!  It was so much fun! Stella is so great with Liam... she was loving and kissing on him so much!  It really melted my heart.  I love this girl SO much!

A perforated eardrum....???

Wednesday night Stella was up all night.  She kept saying, ear hurt!  Doctor please!  I looked at her ear that morning and there was fluid pouring out of it!  So we got her to the doctor and they said she had perforated her eardrum because there was so much fluid on it.  This also happened during the ice storm, so it may have never healed correctly.  They assured me that her hearing would be ok and she wouldn't need tubes.  Poor baby!  Luckily, we got some antibiotics and ear drops and she is back to her normal, rambunctious self!

Stella's 2nd Birthday!

Oh my goodness!  Saturday was a crazy, wild, amazing day!  We had the absolute best time at Stella's birthday party.  There were about 15 tinies and 30ish grownups... so it was a madhouse!  It was so fun running around getting everything set up and then talking to everyone who came.  We had a blowup bounce house in the backyard, along with the Little Tikes slide, Stella's Dora tent, and her wagon.  The food was great... Chick-fil-a and lots of different dips.  The candy bar was a HUGE hit!  Everyone made at least one to-go box, but I still have tons of candy left.  Oh well!!  Stella opened all of her adorable gifts and was even great about sharing with the other kiddos.  She absolutely loved her Pottery Barn dollhouse!   It was definitely the highlight of her day... well, besides the bounce house!  She got furniture to go in the dollhouse, too.  Tay's mom home made Stella a quilt that was originally for her daddy, and she also got tons of adorable clothes from Bella Jack's and Impressions.  Lucky me!  It was a busy day, but we ended on a great note.  I got to drink some wine, hang with some friends and family, and celebrate my amazing, beautiful daughter's 2nd birthday!  I will post the "official" party pictures from Chris Stinson soon.  Hope you guys had a great weekend!
