|That face says it all. Lila is sick. Vivi is supportive of her sister who is sick.|
Lila (2 yrs. 8 months)
She’s sick. Bad cough. Bad attitude. I feel for her. It’s been a rough few days. She might be on the upswing. I’m just hoping we get some sleep tonight.
I need for her to get back to this:
My favorite thing about her right now:
This would be what Lila tells us whenever she doesn’t want to do something at that moment.
“I go potty on Sundays.”
“I take bath on Sundays.”
“I eat kiwi on Sundays.”
And face painting.
Vivienne Kate (13 months):
Craig and I both are in agreement that we met Vivienne this week.
THIS CHILD has bloomed. I think all she needed to do was become proficient at walking. She’s got her sea legs and she’s hilarious. Laughing all the time. Chatting all the time. Her personality is just fun.
The giggling is the highlight of my life right now.
Oh, and the talking, too. “Dada” is crystal-clear. She also says: Lila, Mama, dog, ball, belly and our personal favorite: “Wow.”
Be still my heart.
Ok, on to the photos. (I don’t have a ton of Lila. She wasn’t quite in the mood as of late…)
Tell me Vivi doesn’t look like a squirrel here.
Sneaking out to the courtyard.
One morning this week she sneaked out to the courtyard, grabbed the sidewalk chalk and got down to business. With Millie helping her, of course. (No, she didn’t make the flowers… They were already there.)
She does, however, sometimes draw on Millie.
She’s so busy.
For a little while I was nervous: Vivienne despised accessories.
I worry no more: she loves hats and headbands and dresses and tutus.
She still loathes bibs, though.
She’d rather strangle herself with one in an attempt to remove it than simply wear it.
Ignore the food on her face and focus in on the cuteness of that four-tooth smile.
Please note the Cheerio stuck to her muffin top.
This is my body. She’ll thank me when she’s older. I just know it.
Sick Lila loves her Daddy.
The best father in all the world with his ladies.
My mini-me. Does anyone else see it?
Lila hanging out on her makeshift “rest up” bed, reading. Then for a moment she let me snap a quick picture of her today when she was playing outside.
She refused to look at the camera, though.
You can’t have it all.
Please note Vivi giving instructions to Millie about how to go down the slide.
Millie goes down the slide on a regular basis.
And, my favorites of the week.
Vivi and her birthday tutu.
She wants to put it on. And when she does? She attempts to twirl…
Best photo of the week.
Have a good week, everyone.
