108/365


She ate avocado tonight. I know it doesn't look like it, but she did actually eat some.


Today I am thankful for having such a better day than we did yesterday. Yesterday was just a bad day all around for me. The kids were crazy, the weather was bad, we spent 5 hours in the car, and my sessions were cancelled. I was so grouchy and short tempered. I feel a million times better today. The girls had a much better day. We got to see one of my great friends, Kathy and her precious baby Perry. Both girls took great afternoon naps. It was just a good day. And I won first place in the I Heart Faces contest this week. That made my day!



It was pretty cloudy and rainy here today, but by late afternoon it cleared off and we ended up having a gorgeous evening. Lucy ate her dinner outside and Annie was so pleased to sit and dig in the dirt. The fresh air felt so good and was just what we all needed. We did a nice long video chat with Justin when we came back in. The girls went down easily and now I am just enjoying my evening.

While we were outside, Lucy found a thing that had fallen off of our crape myrtle that at one point had a bloom in it. She was certain that it was a cocoon with 2 butterflies in it. She said that Annie and me needed to stay quiet while the butterflies were sleeping. She kept that "cocoon" with her the rest of the night. She still can't make the -ck sound, so it was a too-toon. Cute stuff.

This is such a funny picture. I promise she liked it. I think. :)


Surprisingly, she never hurt a single flower. She just dug herself a little hole.


Seriously, this is so cute.


The "too-toon"

Great pics today. Looks like Annie might at least have had fun messing with her food! Glad she ate some! I love that Lucy had a cocoon to play with. Mostly I'm glad that a better day was had by all. The guys didn't win at the tourney. Dad said he didn't play his best. Not actually how he worded it, but you know what I mean. Was another great day here. Got to eat our salads and pizza outside. Boys loved it. I'm ready to go wash the old face and brush teeth. Talk to you tomorrow (or tonight if you want) Love and kisses, Lee Lee

ok, annie is looking more and more different everyday. is that just me? more faces. more physical positions. different smiles. i don't know what it is, but she looks different. maybe in a growing way. probably not something you want to hear. maybe it's the whole "i'm a year old" thing.

and picture #1? lucy? that b&w conversion is PERFECT.
