I didn’t grow up watching Sesame Street. I was into Kidsongs and Barney (I know how lame! But hey I had younger sisters ;) ).
Hubby however was a real fan of SS and watched it often. So often he knew certain episodes by memory!
From the first day Sarah laid her eyes on Elmo and friends, she was hooked! Every time she got sick we would have a SS marathon. She grew to really like it and even requested the show. Her second word was actually Abby (the main female character on the show).
Therefore it shouldn’t be a surprise that we celebrated her first birthday Sesame Street style.
Last week Jerry Nelson, Count von Count died at the age of 78. It’s sad to see any of her beloved characters die. Especially the Count! His main role was to teach kids how to count. Sarah loved his song about the number eight. If you’d like to watch it click here. She even yells it out when she sees it on buildings, etc.. So sorry to see you go Count von Count.
Living in Florida most of my life, I am very used to hurricanes. But not being next to your family makes me worry. My parents and two sisters live there along with grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, etc. Granted almost nothing ever happened to us, I am still worried. Until my sister sends me a picture text of the soup her and my mom just made.
Doesn’t it look yummy?!
My friend posted this Facebook status the other day “I remember hurricane Andrew so vividly. Hard to believe it was 20 years ago today. I hope we never experience another hurricane like that in my lifetime.”
I too remember it vividly! I was in bed under my covers while my windows clanked, while the tress flew across the street and while heavy rain poured flooded our roof. It was a crazy night, but by the next morning it was all done. I can’t believe it’s been 20 years!
Isaac might be the current hurricane causing havoc in South Florida, but it also happens to be my father’s name. In Hebrew we call him Itzhak or Ike in English. Isaac means to laugh. I hope this hurricane isn’t laughing at us too much and that my family and friends are all prepared for what might just turn into a tropical storm!

A few days ago I posted a freebie from Sears. Today we took advantage of the opportunity. I’ve been searching and pinning a lot of sweet photos on Pinterest lately. My inspiration was old Hollywood mixed with cute and simple baby poses.
It was fun! Sarah didn’t mind getting dressed up and posing for the camera. She did however want to play with all their props (which didn’t match our theme)!
Here are some of my favorite pictures:
Can’t wait to frame some of these precious moments!
