Friday Pictures

Ask Linlee if she wants to play in the bath tub and she’ll say, “No,” but a puddle of water, now that’s a good time. This puddle collected on the tarp that covers Duncan’s kennel. My other little princess plays inside: Okay, I have an extra large diaper on her butt, so that last picture …

“Purple lunch box is sad.”

I know it looks more like a pink/magenta color, but Linlee calls it purple.  Notice the sad face she has taped onto it?  Linlee has not been able to express her emotions with words.  She can point to a picture and say, “He is happy,” (or mad, or sad, or scared, etc.), but she does …

Update

Linlee did not enjoy Tangled yesterday.  In her defense, she was extremely disappointed that she did not get to go swimming with her daddy like they normally do on Sundays (pool was closed).  Sitting down to watch a movie was a poor substitute for swimming, in Linlee’s opinion.  She kept asking us to turn the …

Weekend Recap and Happy Easter!

We enjoyed glorious weather on Saturday – sunny and 65 degrees.  Our first thought was, “Oooh, we should visit the tulip fields or the zoo!”  Our second thought was, “Hmm, probably half of Seattle will visit the tulip fields and the other half will visit the zoo.”  We opted for a more low-key day, which …

Bucket Heads

Yesterday I plopped Holly down on the kitchen floor with a bucket of measuring cups to play while I did some cleaning up.  She quickly emptied the bucket and put it on her head.  That cracked me up. A few moments later, Linlee walked into the kitchen and saw the discarded bucket.  She immediately picked …

Four Nights of Great Sleep

I love my mom!  She slept with Holly the whole time during her visit.  I turned off the baby monitor each night and drifted off into uninterrupted slumber; heaven.  The funny thing is, my mom just called from Spokane to say that she is back home safe and sound and also that she will miss …

37º and Raining

This is April?  Come on.  We had a little taste of sunshine, a little promise of spring, and now more winter.  Bah humbug! My mom and I have been spending a good portion of our days hunched over holding onto Holly’s little hands as she waddles around the house.  All she wants to do anymore …

My Girls in the Sunshine

What a fabulous, pretty day!  Not only were both girls in great moods, but I got to have lunch out with Anne – no kids at all.  What a very nice break.  Thanks, Mom!  My mom is back for a quick visit.  Last night she slept in Holly’s room with Holly (there is a guest …

Bailey and the Bunny

This is one of my all-time favorite pictures.  (I was going to do a whiny post about how Holly is up crying several times throughout the night again and then Linlee wakes up at 6:00 AM on the dot and is only happy once she has awaken the entire household, so I’m tired and cranky …

Oh, baby girl…

I’m going to be in trouble with my little one.  Holly already grabs anything and everything within reach.  And I do mean everything.  It’s funny if we go out to dinner.  Rob, Linlee and I are huddled at one end of the table with our dishes piled up against each other while Holly is at …
