Annie 267/365

Lucy 267/365

Today I am thankful that I know my girls will be so well taken care of when I leave them. I am going to miss them like crazy. I don't really even worry about Lucy, but I still worry about Annie. She is just in such a momma's girl stage and I HATE it when you can't explain to them when you aren't going to be there but will be back. I know she will be fine, but it is still really hard. On all of us. Even though I know Lucy gets it, it doesn't make how much I miss her any easier. Lucy and I had a rough afternoon for a while because she woke up in one of those crazy after naps moods. and then she only wanted Lee Lee to put her to bed, so I am going to miss her a little extra.

I am watching Grey's. I am pissed off about George being gone. I loved George. We already knew he was done, but I am still sad about it. Can't wait to see what the next hour holds. Quick question. Who is your favorite character on Grey's now? I would say mine is now Dr. Bailey. I also like Christina but my favorite would have been George.

Next time you hear from me I will be in another state. I am really excited about this weekend. I will tell you more about it tomorrow.

One last thing about the pictures from today of Annie. I didn't think it was possible for a child to love their blankees more than Lucy does. But Annie is quite possibly going to love hers even more. They are big blankets but she tries to carry both of them around all over the house now. They are constantly falling and she is always tripping on them. But she insists that they go everywhere now. These pictures are from first thing this morning when I wrap her up in them so she can bring them down to my room.


Her hair is so awesome in the mornings.

Duc can certainly relate to Annie! He just recently began to really notice his blankey and not he carries at least two with him throughout the house. He keeps them tucked between his shoulder and his cheek and I catch him nuzzling his blankies when he needs a little extra lovin.

Very interested in hearing about your photo class!

Hi, I'm L from MN. I read your blog everyday. Really, everyday. I found it through another adoption blog. I,too, hope to be blessed with adoption one day soon.
I just wanted to pop in & tell you how much I enjoy reading your blog.
I'm a HUGE Grey's fan and I'm so upset that they killed George off. My fav is Dr. Bailey.
Have a safe & relaxing trip!

Emily said...

annie looks so cute with her big blankets!

Elizabeth said...

Looks like you got that spikey haired baby you always wanted! Rock it Annie! So proud of her walking around - I love it when you post pictures of her being mobile.

Have so much fun this weekend!! I can't wait to hear about all it. I know it's tough to leave the girls but it will be an amazing learning experience for you. And I know you won't be the fish out of water that I was at my workshop two weeks ago. Ugh.

Travel safe!

Kate said...

Have fun and hope you learn lots!

Grey's was good. Love Bailey.

Shawna said...

Have so much fun will learn so much and be able to bring back so much from this workshop...I know that this is a great thing you are leaving to do.

ps...I'm loving me that spikey hair this evening. Loves!

Melissa said...

Ah Grey's was awesome tonight! So sad, but adorable.

My favorite character would have to be DEREK SHEPHERD! ha! McDreamy!!

What precious pictures! Annie's hair is precious!

Amy said...

Enjoy your trip! Can't wait to hear about some of the things you learned.

Susan said...

I hope you really enjoy your workshop. Can't wait to hear all about it. Have a great time.

Oh my goodness Annie is so cute it's ridiculous!! I totally love her little face in the last one! And her hair rocks.


Jen said...

Love crazy hair...I too have a crazy hair girl too, and a boy that wakes from his naps in a ROTTEN mood most of the time. I feel your pain. Have a great time this weekend. I am a bit of a photo junkie myself, so I am a little jealous of your trip.
As far as Grey's goes...I love Bailey but Shepherd has those looks that make you like him.

Ashley said...

Have FUN at your workshop- we'll miss you! LOVE Annie all wrapped up with the crazy hair!

Kristi said...

Oh I LOVE the blankie pictures because my two girls are blankie girls too. They take them to the gym, to the grocery store, etc. The things smell so gross after a few days and there is always a meltdown when I wash them.
I'm bummed your class isn't in CO. I would love to have you do a shoot for our family one day. Let us know if you're in the area!

Don't tell me you get to stay in a hotel alone! I want to just go stay in a hotel here in town for a couple of days, just so I can bathe, sleep, watch TV in peace.
I hope you have a great time and learn lots.

I'm here too! Just hard to keep up daily anymore. I cannot imagine posting every single day. I did it for a month and couldn't wait to have my evenings back (and Travis was SO done with it; nothing pisses him off more than losing me to "blogging"). But you will be so glad to have had this year of daily photos for your girls.
I know this is blasphemy to you because you love Grey's but I watched it last night to see if I could get back into it after last season, which I found to be terrible...but the writing is still AWFUL. So overdramatized and so choppy. And the medical stuff is always painfully wrong, which just annoys the heck out of me. I'm always screaming at the TV, and Travis is constantly cracking comments like "oh, so now the surgical resident is also the radiology tech" and stuff like that. We just can't watch it, and I especially can't watch it with his peanut gallery comments. Ok, after trashing it though, if I had to pick a favorite character it'd be McSteamy. He's hot, he doesn't take himself seriously, the acting he has to do isn't challenging so it doesn't pain me to watch his scenes.
I know you're dying inside, but that's my honest opinion of the show;)

Kelli said...

Ummm...Aiden loves his blankie as much as Annie! He got his as a gift from Susan and Petunia. I had to have Susan order a 2nd one for back up!

Tara said...

Have I told you yet how much I love your blog? It's so nice to see such gorgeous photography from such a loving mother - and your daily gratitude is inspiring. This is a wonderful project - and I appreciate it everyday!
