Adam's Photo Shoot

Just a few pictures from Adam's latest photo session. He is a sweet, cooperative subject, and he has many moods.

Just plain cute:

Apparently some girl at preschool told Bronwen that she just has to go to Disney World. Great. I am guessing it has to do with Bronwen wearing her Tinkerbell sweatshirt the other day--I can only imagine how that conversation went:

Maddie: Do you like Tinkerbell?
Bronwen: Yes, I certainly do!
Maddie: Well, you know where you can see her, right?
Bronwen: No, where?
Maddie: Disney World! You must go now!
Bronwen: Hm, where is this Disney place?
Maddie: Doesn't matter--ask your Mom.
Bronwen: I must hatch up a scheme to get my parental units to transport me posthaste. I am indebted to you, Maddie.

Sensory Tubs Part 1

I remember doing the sensory tub with Bronwen last year, and she loved it, so on the last shopping trip to Walmart, I picked up two new tubs and a variety of beans. Today was gorgeous, and Bronwen was feeling better from her bout with the flu, so we headed outside with the tubs, beans, and a variety of scoops, measuring cups, and bigger containers.

The girls had a blast! I am really, really glad I attempted this outside though. (See Part 3)

I also love how Bronwen looks like Elton John in her new Tinkerbell sunglasses. She is wearing a jacket because she was cold despite the 68-degree weather. (She still has a fever.)

Making Valentines

I actually had the girls working on valentines a week early--this is the two of them hard at work on T.J.'s cards. Bronwen told me she wanted to wait until the actual day to give it to him, but that evening as he walked through the door she shouted, "We made you valentines!" and gave it to him straight away. I don't think he minded. What you don't see is the camera-person has matching jammies...

Lila's Beautiful Lashes

Before I took the video of her in pigtails, I tried to get a picture. Lila, of course, refused to cooperate, but I managed to get this coy look. I love her lashes and chubby cheeks...

hair do...

Happy Valentine's Day!

Today we worked on making our annual Valentine's Day cookies. The recipe is easy, the dough beautiful, and the results, delicious!

With clean hands and a lemon, we are ready to begin!

Photo Session

T.J. decided that we needed to do another photo session with Adam last weekend. Adam is growing and changing so quickly--he weighed in at 14 pounds, 15 oz at his 2-month appointment. I have to remind myself to try to capture him weekly since he is growing like a weed. Of course the girls had to get into the action, in all their finery.

Some of our favorites:

Lila and School

Today I take Lila in for her second day of school. I tentatively started her last week--not sure why I have such separation anxiety over this--and was told she did really well. I did note the slight stomping of feet as I was leaving, but apparently they discovered her love of Dora and found a Dora toy which she loved.

I hope she learns to love school.
