My little brother and sister

Yesterday and Today

Yesterday morning, Claira walked around the house in search of Jason. She'd scrunch her shoulders up, hold out her hands, and ask me, "Da-da?" I'd tell her he's at work to which she'd respond, "Oh!" and go about her merry way, playing for a few minutes before she started her search all over again.

Today, I'm currently sitting in the living room with the laptop, and Claira keeps walking by, waving to me, and saying, "Hi, bebe!" then running away in a fit of giggles. She's definitely developing her own little sense of humor.

Happy Father's Day!

For all of the dad's out there...most likely to your husbands! But, especially to my dear husband, who spends his days outnumbered and doesn't mind tea parties, being sshhed when dolls are sleeping, and has been known to paint Elsie's toe nails for her. I'm so thankful for him!

for you, Mama

My mom has been bugging me to post pictures for weeks, it's time for a picture overload! Love you, Mama, and I'll see you tomorrow!

Dress Codes

Didn't you get the memo? High heels are all the rage for cartoon watching and slipping and sliding through the kitchen. Stay tuned for more of the latest toddler trends!

Okay, seriously...Claira walks better in high heels (that are way too big) than I do!

Here's another one...just because this girl rarely smiles for the camera! The girls tend to camp out on the couch in the early evening while they're waiting on Daddy to come home.

The Professional Shopper and the Bookworm

We have one of each taking up residence at our house now. Those are Elsie and Claira's current professions. Elsie's favorite thing to play right now is house...whether it be with the dollhouse or with her baby dolls. Claira usually fills the role of whomever Elsie needs to boss around. Today, Elsie has been very busy with important phone calls and keeps reminding Claira to make her appointment at Target where all the best shopping is. Then, she sighs and goes on and on about how much work it is.
Really though, the Target love? She gets it honestly, from her Mama!
Claira has fallen in love with books over the past few months, and they are now her constant companions. We read the same 3 or 4 books 87,000 times a day, until she falls asleep with at least one of them in her arms. It's not so cozy nursing her to sleep with a board book or two wedged between us, but I'll admit that it's pretty sweet so she gets away with it.
