Portrait Time!

It was time to get Holly’s two-year portrait taken, but this year, I also got shots of both of the girls together.  Some moments were touch & go, especially at the beginning of the session when Holly was being very two and refused to cooperate.  It all worked out, though, and now I have some …

Music that makes me feel young…

You never know what someone’s preference in music might be.  Sometimes you can tell by looking, but for the most part, I bet you can’t.  For instance, those who know me really well, probably know that I adore South African music and rhythms.  Maybe it started with Paul Simon’s Graceland album, but I can’t be …

Happy Children

I think we have about six weeks until school starts, so that means we are just halfway through summer.  This time last year I was losing my mind.  This summer the girls and I are still doing very well.  Linlee and Holly are ramping up the sibling fighting, but it’s all totally normal stuff which …

Girly Girls

I don’t have a picture of the girls before we left for the grocery store yesterday, but they were so darn cute!  Linlee needed her pink, sparkly purse to take with her and Holly needed to wear her pink flower necklace.  I admit it, I love having girly girls.  🙂 And Holly may have been …

This and That

This picture is so Linlee; here she is sitting while she fills the pool.  She has always been a rather delicate princess.  Today at the grocery store was a perfect example.  I got one of those huge carts that has two seats for kids in the front.  Linlee remained happily seated the entire time while …

Two Favorite Kid Quotes

Linlee: “Mommy, can I say hi to the stop & slow man?” Anyone have any good guesses?  Keep in mind that Linlee likes to be friendly with road construction people. I posted this next one on Facebook, but for those who missed it, it’s too cute for words: After hearing a rumble of thunder for …

Today’s Post

Love this one of beautiful Linlee. I’m annoyed with Neighbor Girl this afternoon.  I put a note on the front door that said: DO NOT RING BELL.  BABY NAPPING.  Sadly, T does not know how to read.  She woke up Holly by ringing the bell (followed by Duncan barking as if his life depended on …

6 Things I do Not Care For, by Holly, still age 2

It’s me folks, Holly Young, back to catch you up on some of my thoughts and opinions.  I have many.  Today’s topic is “things I do not care for.”  I figure we might as well get started with the basics, so here we go: 1. Vegetables: Eww.  Let me begin this paragraph by stating that there …

Linlee Update

Well, our stairs haven’t looked this orderly in a long time.  (Usually the shoes are thrown haphazardly to one side.)  Aside from lining them up, Linlee has even alternated pink and blue.  (If there is any question, Linlee’s favorite color is blue; Holly’s is pink.) Linlee is doing better.  She has slept through the night …
