I hate to say it, but it’s entirely possible that Anna has watched one too many episodes of Dora. After puzzling it over for a while, I’m pretty sure that what she’s been going around all morning saying is, “Oh, Man!” And the only time she would have ever heard that phrase would have been … [Read more…]
Anna got ahold of my cell phone today while we were at the shop and I was helping a customer. I noticed her with it and heard a few beeps, and when I took it away from her there was a text message with my balance on it. I don’t have a text message plan, … [Read more…]
Anna adores seeing her big sister off on the bus, and will wave and say “buh-buh!” after the bus pulls away. But even more adorable is watching her reaction in the afternoon when she sees the bus coming down the street. Her little legs start kicking and she squeals with laughter.

With two girls, I’ve been able to reuse a whole lot of clothes. This outfit was one of my favorites on Carrie: And now Anna can wear it too! (And if you look really, really closely you can see her two teeny teeth!)

I found a used Bumbo seat on craigslist a week or so ago. Anna seems to like it, and it’s especially useful when we take Carrie to dance class – I don’t have to either carry a stroller down to the basement or juggle holding Anna while changing Carrie into her dance things. I just … [Read more…]
We managed to get Anna laughing – real, honest belly laughs – today. It was so cute. Carrie and I would stick out our tongues, and Anna would stick her tongue out to mimic us. Then we started giggling…and she did too! I wish I could have grabbed the video camera, but I opted to … [Read more…]
