Three has been fun with her. She's got such an active mind and she's so eager to learn everything and do things herself. She's become my helping girl and does everything from dishes, to folding laundry, to sweeping the floor or stairs. Lately, her favourite question is, " Mama, what can I do to help you?" Got to love her for her sweet, willing heart. :)

"Mama, please may I towl you someseen?"

Every night Emmy is the last one out. She's the thirsty one, the "Mama, my back is itchy" one, the "Mama, my button came undone again! Could you please do it up for me? I need you to do it up for me" one.

She drives me crazy.

In effort to enjoy my children more, I've begun giving each of them a few minutes right before bed to share whatever is on their minds. Last night, Emmy shared that she knew monsters aren't reeeallly real, but that she's still a tiny bit afraid of them...and jellyfish. And that she has a hard time not playing with the soap in the bathroom because it feels so gooey and bubbly. And that she reeeeeeeaaallly really thinks that mini chocolate bars would be a good treat for working hard at her letters, numbers, shapes, and reading. She's on lesson 11 in the 100 easy lessons book. This is big stuff.

"Whatsh cookin', Moms?"

My kids are all crazy expressive. They must get it from their Daddy. ;)
Addie in her highchair: "Mama! I aw done my waffo. I STUCK!"

Emmy: "Don't worry, Mama, I know what to do. We haff to starb her until her tummy gets little again and then we can juss pop her out of dere!"

*Note to self* No more Winnie the Pooh without parental guidance.
I smell a familiar and unwelcome reek as I enter the room where Addie is on the floor playing with baby dolls.

Me: "Phew! You are stinky!"

Addie: "Papa did it."

Me: "Papa's in Idaho. I'm pretty sure it was you, you little stinker."

Addie: "PAPA stinky! hehehe"

He loves to explore faces with his chubby little fingers.

"Back to bed, Punk!"

"Back to bed, Punk!", originally uploaded by iamaprice(Amanda).

Addie's been waking up verrrry cranky from her naps the last few days so I send her to the family room with a stack of books. She either falls back to sleep or forgets to be grumpy after a little while.

Vruuum, vrrrrrrrum!

Lazy Afternoon

Lazy Afternoon, originally uploaded by iamaprice(Amanda).

Yesterday we finished up school in the morning so we read a mountain of books together and chatted with Auntie Tammy on the phone all afternoon. Some days are crazy busy, it's so nice to have a relaxing afternoon.

Who could ask for anything more?

Thanks for the adorable hat, Ang! It doubles as a paci holder. Handy feature, that. :)

One from a couple of weeks ago. I completely blew the focus and the lighting was no good, and yet...

How could I keep it to myself? Photographer vs. Mama.

Mama wins. :)

October..., originally uploaded by iamaprice(Amanda).

left a lot of leaves on the lawn, but they sure were pretty while they lasted.

P.S. Dor, do you see Auntie Peggy in her face?

"I tate you picher, Mama. Weddy?!"

My Addie girl is talking up a storm now. She's always been vocal, but about two weeks ago, she began constructing actual sentences. She's so pleased to be able to communicate with words.


Normal, originally uploaded by iamaprice(Amanda).

Me: "Can I just get one normal picture of you two?"

Them: "Ok!"


sooc - I love the lighting on this porch. Wish I could use it more.
