In the midst of all that, I haven't been doing much around here beyond maintaining, and only managed to punch out one of the many ideas I've been juggling in a blog post earlier this week. However, I did manage to host an impromptu playdate and attempt mushroom risotto for the first time (which turned out great) despite it all. Gotta count the wins where I can, I suppose.
|I keep wondering, and wondering, and wondering, and wondering... When will this tooth come in?|
|My pretty princesses.|
|Perhaps those royal hands are too dainty to punch the numbers on her laptop.|
|The Shiner, day three.|
|My favorite kind of selfie.|
|It seems that bedtime stories make my girls hungry for their fingertips (but the binky suits Michael just fine).|
|Look out for the tunnel monster...|
|She's coming to get you!|
Overheard this week:
To her father, as he leaned in to give her a hello peck: "No kisses! When your beard touches my cheek, it itches."
To me, as Tom and I were discussing who should shower first before my parents arrived: "Mima and Granda will watch us while you and Daddy get in the shower."
Between Tom and Abby
While playing at teatime
T: "Abby, I think you just spilled tea all over me."
A: " You're gonna need another shower."
Discussing Mima and Granda's impeding visit
T: "Is Granda going to call you A-BEE?"
A: (giggling) "He always calls me my wrong name!"
"pineapple, footprint, cookbook"
"TAKE" (which she tends to announce loudly as she proceeds to do just that)
"medicine, snuggle, tickle,"
"Brush her hair"
