I want the camera!
Anne Marie doesn't want to wear the glasses or have her picture taken and lets Mommy know it.

I'll Wear them on my Belly
OK, Anne Marie will wear them on her tummy.

"Napping by myself in my crib, never!"

I shouldn't' say that actually - by many mom's standards I have it very good because she will often take two naps a day in her crib, and usually the girl's afternoon naps overlap to some degree. It just so happens that she really would prefer to be around us instead of alone - sleeping or awake.

This picture was taken after she cried for about 45 minutes off and on (mostly on) and I gave in and got her. She was so tired but too upset to calm down in her crib. Once I picked her up - no problem! She was sitting on the couch next to me while I folded clothes - and then - her tiredness caught up to her!

She just likes to hang out with people. Sit near her and usually she'll play with her toys by herself - but don't walk away! When she wakes at night and we don't have the stamina to get her back to sleep in her own bed, we can bring her in ours and she'll sleep like an angel often long after the rest of us get up - no feeding necessary. I'm already seeing the differences in the girl's personalities.

Up to Date

Beautiful Girl

Five Months

I think I'm up to date with Pictures!!

Eleanor's Baptism Weekend and her Five Month Photo Shoot are up!

I still have alot I want to blog about - but those are just my ramblings and will be saved for another day... let's be honest, the pictures are what you come for! Enjoy!

Now - off to get ready for my Birthday Date!

Two Girls


Whoo Hoo

I often sit Eleanor in Anne Marie's armchair while I get Anne Marie ready for nap. While we read stories now, it's easier to put Anne Marie next to Eleanor and I sit on the floor with the book and read to them both. When I set Anne Marie down today she said "Two Girls". It was such a neat moment - yes - my two girls! - and she was so proud of herself when I got excited about her remark. She has started talking and figuring things out so much lately. While these skills have also been accompanied by more frustration and tantrums, it's still amazing to see her growing.

PJs and Bunnies

Today is my birthday - so I've declared it a day of indulgence. After Anne Marie's breakfast, we watch the Winnie-The-Pooh movie. Then I put coats over PJs and slippers (for all three of us) and we went to Micky-D's for a biscuit and cinnamon roll for mommy, then ran a couple drive-thru errands and came home to play. Then Anne Marie had an hour of quiet time, while Ellie and Mommy napped. After that, we watched Cars while we ate lunch and Mommy tried to recover from only an hour of nap (I don't really power nap well). Now the girls are napping and (I know Andy probably won't like this) but I bet we'll watch another movie before the girls go to bed. I'm really looking forward to this weekend though. TWO DATES! Whoo hoo. Dinner with Andy tonight and then a wine tasting tomorrow. Should be fun!

Here's an attempt at my first video post... we'll see how it goes. With my new camera (thanks Mom and Dad!!!!), I'll hopefully have lots more video of our everyday life. I think there was an ulterior motive in my birthday gift!! Oh well - can't blame those grandparents for wanting to see more of these two darlings!

OK, so obviously I've been slacking. The excuses are all the same as usual and who knows if there is even anyone out there who is still checking our blog. For those who might be, I wanted to make sure you knew I uploaded a bunch of pictures. Here are some links:

I still have Ellie's 4 month pictures to post (and I'm only 5 days to her 5 month anniversary!) - so hopefully I'll do that soon. I also have a huge list of things to blog about that I want to get to. Someday. :)
