Today is My Birthday

And I celebrated with a fun day at the zoo!


There were some strange characters…

Mom and Dad said I would have to wait until the party to open my gifts, but they let me open some from Grandma and Grandpa back in Maryland.

Boy, I can’t wait until tomorrow. Thank you Grandma and Grandpa!


Boomerang Bottles

Today I ran into the most peculiar thing….

It’s a baby bottle that’s not meant for drinkin’

It says right here, that just like a well-tossed boomerang, these bottles leave empty, but come back full of coins, currency, and checks.

It’s supposed to help purchase diapers, wipes, educational material, car sears and much more to help parents in crisis be the best parents they can be…?

Parents in crisis? Mom GET THE PIGGY BANK!!!

I’m breaking into my piggy bank, but I want you to do your part.

Bring your loose change down to my parents studio because there’s four of these bottles laying around here.

Just call them at 615-246-1700 for directions and all of that.

Or if you want to help the Open Door Pregnancy Center (facebook) directly call 615-384-HOPE

If you’re anything like me, you want every baby to have the same opportunity to smile and giggle. So I’ll see you soon.
