Sweetness

Just yesterday I posted how busy Holly has been keeping me and how I no longer seem to have time or energy to blog several times a week anymore.  Then today she has been magically calm and easy.  I was actually able to take some pictures and put them up.  Who is this toddler?  I …

Holly = Curious George

My cousin pointed out to me a week or so ago that Holly is a Curious George (much like my cousin’s third child, whom she calls George, even though that is not his name).  For those who don’t know, Curious George is a monkey whose heart is in the right place, but he is constantly …

PerseverationPerseverationPerseverationPerseverationPerseveration

The perseveration (where Linlee repeats the same thing over and over and over) is in full swing and has been for quite a while.  It’s like this…  Imagine that every time you turn on the TV, the same episode of Seinfeld is playing.  Sometimes you can have the TV off, but sometimes you must have …

Two Girls; One Chair

Awe, how precious is this?  Holly doesn’t give Linlee much space, though.  Linlee was sitting on the chair first when Holly decided to share. Holly adores her big sister.  Linlee has been pretty tolerant of her little sister lately.  It’s nice.

Three Little Girls

Everyone had a great night’s sleep last night.  The girls giggled for an hour and it filled my heart with such joy that I can’t even begin to express.  It was so normal.  I honestly teared up a time or two listening to them squeak and squeal upstairs.  My sweet Linlee was having fun with …

First Sleepover

Oh my, I do not know if these two little seven year olds are going to actually sleep tonight – they are so excited. So far, I hear a whole lot of giggling from upstairs.  🙂

Holly Trouble Young

Holly, Holly, Holly.  What can I say about this child?  I love her to the moon and back.  I am crazy about this child.  She brings such joy and laughter to our lives every single day.  But holy cow, she is wearing me out.  A few days ago she climbed up her chest of drawers …

A Potty vs. A Pot

Holly might not have the potty concept down yet.  After practicing a bit and having an accident on the floor, she brought the potty into the kitchen, got out a whisk from the drawer and began whisking… This child cracks me up.
