As for this post, it will end up being as distracted and last-minute as ever, squeezed as it always is into the late hours of a Sunday night, but since the pictures do most of the talking anyway, I'll go ahead and let them do just that.
|Amelia and the terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad teething day.|
|Candyland is still great fun while Abby has yet to differentiate between winning and losing so long as she gets to finish (that's me, at the finish in the yellow).|
|Little girls in a big swing.|
|This is how Michael does play dates.|
|My proudest accomplishment of the week.|
|Still shaking off the post-nap sleepies.|
|Thoroughly enjoying a superhero sugar cookie (can you tell it was decorated with red frosting?).|
|The best picture I could get to document our first shiner (earned via a collision with the corner of Abby's dress-up chest).|
Overheard this week:
Playing Mommy after hearing me remind her brother for the umpteenth time that we only color on paper, "Michael, everything in this world is not paper."
Between Abby and Me
M: " Abby, I think you should take your dress-up clothes off before you start eating dinner. They are not very washable."
A: "But I don't want to..."
M: "Okay, you can keep it on if you are careful, but I need you to wear a bib over it."
A: "No. No bib!"
M: "Then I guess you want to take the dress off? Those are your two options: take off the dress or wear the bib."
A: "I want to wear the dress but no bib. I made a new option!"
"Pooh, Tigger, Kanga, Roo, Owl, Rabbit"
"Put me down!"
"I love you."
"Dora, boots, banana"
