A million pictures of the girls. 0

A million pictures of the girls.

I just shared about our zoo trip last night, but I wanted to go ahead and post the rest of the pictures from the past few days before I get further behind… Ada is growing up way too fast.  She seems almost toddler-like now instead of a baby.  She and Rosie love each other like crazy. Eating blueberries for breakfast the other day: (LOL!) She was pointing at her fish up on the counter…she loves them so much! See? She also loves her Daddy....

That would be my baby eating and enjoying some chocolate frozen yogurt at Orange Leaf…

Mother, oh Mother, come shake out your cloth, Empty the dustpan, poison the moth, Hang out the washing and butter the bread, Sew on a button and make up a bed. Where is the mother whose house is so shocking? She’s up in the nursery, blissfully rocking. Oh, I’ve grown shiftless as Little Boy Blue (Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo). Dishes are waiting and bills are past due (Pat-a-cake, darling, and peek, peekaboo). The shopping’s not done and there’s nothing for stew...

18/365 Can your pets make breakfast? I’ve been trying to pay extra attention to Rosie lately.  I love the way she absolutely lights up when I teach her something new.  She’s big on learning how to do things all by herself lately. Sleep in her own bed?  Check.  Open her own granola bars and string cheese wrappers?  Mhm, and open everyone elses’ for them as well.  Wipe her own bum?  Sometimes yes, sometimes no.  Dress herself in clothes she selects?  Oh,...

New Year’s resolutions are kind of funny.  It seems like everyone loves to make a list of them, but they’re forgotten by February. Since it’s a new year, and we’re turning over a new leaf, I would like to write down some goals…and unlike a list of resolutions, I fully intend to achieve these goals!  In fact I’ve already started most of them. I’d like to complete the 365 project–you know, one photo a day for a year?  Certainly I can do that.  They...

Ada meets the snow. 1

Ada meets the snow.

Ada met the snow for the first time yesterday.  It went like this: Rosie loves the snow. Ada started saying, “What’s that?” today.  She says it like, “Hut dat?” It might not be discernible to anyone who hasn’t been listening closely to her babble for the past few months, but I made a video of it anyway. At the end she repeats me saying “bless you”.  She repeats scrambled versions of a lot of stuff we say!  I think she’s going to be...

Christmas Day. 1

Christmas Day.

Christmas morning at home…Rosie hoped Santa would bring her a doctor kit and he did! Christmas was fun this year.  Rosie was incredibly excited and Ada frantically tried to eat wrapping paper and tape and tags. Then we went to my parents’ house for lunch… We had a great Christmas. It was Ada’s first Christmas, and it was a white Christmas. My house is a disaster and we are all exhausted!

Christmas Eve. 0

Christmas Eve.

Christmas Eve at my in-laws’ house… And then he threw up, right in the seat belt hole in the bottom of the seat…apparently he’d snacked on cat food prior to getting in the car. (Tyler’s brother.)

8 Months. 2

8 Months.

It’s been 8 months since the most amazing day ever. I gave birth to my sweet squishy Ada in our bed, in the same spot we’re snuggling in right now as I write this. I caught her with my own two hands while the midwife stood back and made the video. I did it!  I grew her in my womb, felt the top of her head inside of me as I dilated, and I was the first person to hold her. The other day...

The Progress of Nosey Puppy. 1

The Progress of Nosey Puppy.

Last month I decided I wanted to get Ada a pull toy doggy for Christmas.  I searched and searched but I couldn’t find one I liked.  None were cute enough, none looked like our dogs so that Ada would recognize it.  She loves dogs so much for some reason. Then I saw Fisher Price Nosey Puppy #445 from the 1950’s. I found one for sale on Etsy for just a few dollars… He was in sad condition, but I had to buy him! On the other side of his...
