seeing big boys in babies, blue eyes, and money well spent

Do you ever look at your baby and wonder what they'll look like when they get bigger? I feel like I can kind of see Zane as a big boy here:

How is my baby 9.5 months old? Crazy town. That's almost a year. {!?!?!}

Also? My baby girl is almost 5 and riding without training wheels as of this weekend:

It's a little sad, I won't lie. All of my children keep growing up. :( Good thing I have a hard-working DIY painter man to console me with flowers:

That giant magnolia he pulled down lasted two days! :) And the orchid was my Mother's Day present. So far I haven't killed it, though I do have to water it precisely with one ice cube per week. {Which reminds me I need to water it since last week...urgh.}

the bird ring was from Holly Lane Designs. I still love it. :D

And the children are loving summer Lego time. I think we can officially toss all of the rest of their toys because Legos are the best pieces of overpriced plastic out there. And they are completely worth every penny. :)

Another thing worth paying extra for? Running into Braum's for basics instead of Walmart. I bought bread, chips, and very expensive half and half but I was so happy not to have to go in the store with the littles at 8:30 at night. That was a win. :)

And you probably already know this about me, but zucchini "pasta" = another huge win in my book. :) {I love it in this Raw Italian Casserole!}

You can't beat it sautéed in olive oil and topped with a little avocado!

And I think this book^ is going to help me ease back into vegetarian eating again. It's adorable {as is the Forest Feast blog!} I can't wait to leave meat behind once the baby is done nursing. It might be weird, but I loved being vegan most of the time.

In the meantime though, I will happily maintain my diet of protein and dairy to keep these baby rolls:

:D I can't stop with the baby pictures, I'm sorry. Those blue eyes kill me.

That was the look he gave me when I told him no crayons. 

We're in trouble, aren't we? ;) 

How has your week been so far?

Are you/ have you ever been vegetarian or vegan? 

Eyes: blue, green, hazel, or brown in your family? 
Rob's are green, mine are blue,  and so are all 5 of my kiddos. They all come out blue and stay that way! :) I wonder if they'll turn colors as they age?
