Sometimes I wish I could completely freeze him at this perfect age, but then I’d miss out on all the future fun things he’ll learn how to do! So, random bits of fun cuteness, courtesy of 16 month old Matthew: 1. He absolutely thinks the dog is underfed. No matter what he’s eating, he will always share with … [Read more…]
I wonder if I should be concerned that the little game Anna has made up with some Hello Kitty squinkies involves the liberal (and correct) usage of the word “minions”? Though I must say there’s nothing more hilarious than hearing “minions” in a squeaky little three-year-old voice!
It has been unseasonably warm here. Like, open all the windows, do we maybe want to consider the A/C…nah, not yet…, break out the shorts warm. But I’m not falling for it. I haven’t switched to our summer bedding, so for now the quilt stays on…and gets kicked off every night. Well, Anna saw it … [Read more…]

We went out for ice cream tonight after dinner. Anna got vanilla with rainbow sprinkles, and Carrie got orange blossom…also with rainbow sprinkles. The important bit, of course, is rainbow sprinkles.
Somewhere along the line, Anna has picked up the idea that sunglasses make her a movie star: I don’t think I take enough pictures of her, do you? I mean, she clearly has no idea what to do when there’s a camera pointed at her…
The pinwheels I bought last year have definitely seen better days, but the girls still love to play with them. Anna calls them “flowers” and holds them up in the sky to try to get them to spin. I think I’m going to have to look for some new pinwheels soon!
Anna and I took a walk this morning to enjoy the beautiful sunshine. Every few steps she’d say “look!” and point to something. “Look, snow!” “Look! Dir-tee snow!” “Look! Trees!” “Look, mom-ee, look!” And every puddle in the drainage ditch: “Look, fishy, look, Nemo!” (I didn’t see any fish, but maybe I wasn’t looking hard … [Read more…]
