Alice & Ada (Photos)
Last week we babysat Ada’s friend Alice for the afternoon. Alice and Ada are almost the same age. Alice is a few weeks older.
We played outside a lot.
(Ada has a fantastically over dramatic frowny face she always makes, and lately it’s been even more dramatic by the addition of eye rolls with the frown and pursed lips.)
Alice tested out Ada’s new scooter.
Rosie played with her friend Hannah who lives down the street.
Bubbles were so exciting, and also something to fight over…
Rosie taught Ada to make this face, but I think it’s so rude. I’ve been trying to teach them not to do it. It’s usually accompanied by the stomping of a foot and a snort. I hate it!
That is not the sort of attitude I want my little girls to ever have. I don’t know where Rosie learned it. She just started doing it one day and believe me I am quick to put a stop to it each time it pops up, yet it persists…
(Ada isn’t sun burned, her skin just flushes easily. She’s actually considerably more than tan Rosie, Tyler, or me.)
Duck Face tastes everything.
Pouting because it isn’t her turn with the bubble wand.
Duckling anatomy fail: Big head and tiny little arms!
I am obsessed with Amish and Old Order Mennonite bonnets. I totally have one in adult size too, and sometimes I wear it.
Funny adorable Alice:
That’s Alice’s uncle there behind the rocking chair, who was adopted from Eastern Europe a few years ago.
