Irina Schehl celebrates her first birthday with her family, a bigger celebration planned for the weekend.
Her parents are certain that she is the sweetest toddler to have ever been born, and while Peter is ready to start trying for another (this one took several years to conceive after all), Elise is ready to focus on her career and not fertility charts.
They immediately had Auntie Meg take a new family portrait to hang in the hall, and she happily obliged.
Irina is a good mix of both her parents, and even has her aunt Meg’s eye shape (Peter’s twin sister), but I’d say she mostly favors Elise.
Over at the Krouse household, Penelope turns four, and is geared up to start preschool next month. She’s very excited to make friends at school and branch out from her own backyard.
Lorelei is happy to have one less baby getting into mischief. Penelope can now help entertain her baby brother, Otto while she attempts to make halfway healthy dinners.
Penelope mostly takes after her maternal side, including her black hair from Grandma Kenzie, but she has her Dad’s eyebrows and eyes.
Out in Millwood, Henry and Catherine Popper’s twins celebrate their fourth birthday also.

Notes: I’m beyond happy with Irina and Penelope’s genetics! 😀 And who can believe that Bea is in college!! I can’t believe that Hazel and Jude are old enough to have a college-aged daughter.
Irina has nearly maxed-out nice points, she’s pretty sweet and totally adorable. Peter immediately rolled a baby want, but not Elise. She’s in Sports Marketing, so she needs to get her foot back in that door if she wants to stay there. I could see Elise being happy with just one baby to dote upon, but she could make me eat my words.
Rebecca and Quint would have celebrated their 20th anniversary, and they had the first wedding I did on the blog! Linnea was my first baby born on the blog, so I’ve done 21 years in the game since the start… really seems pretty small of a number especially looking at Shannon’s multiple legacies in a much shorter period of time! I better get cracking. 😉
Thanks for reading!
