One of the greatest sounds on earth…
My daughter laughing!
It’s intoxicating & I can’t get enough of it. The crying however, I would give that up in a second!
A has a really amazing imagination. She walks around all day singing and dancing to the music in her head. She’s constantly having conversations about something with her stuffed toys and she’s always laughing at something!
The other day we were enjoying the weather on our front lawn and she was playing catch with me…
She was so happy!
She was on the hunt…
She was a little nervous…
She found something!!!!
Everyone…meet A’s neighbor…her dinosaur!
She was completely convinced that this was a dinosaur. She kept saying “Mommy Mommy…look dinosaur!!!” It was so freakin’ adorable. She wouldn’t touch it until I did…and when she did she said “Nice dinosaur!” They are now friends
Around here? A is. Hands down, no questions asked, unequivocably, A is the master of our universe. At least that is what she believes with every ounce of her being! She is usually executing some type of command on me at home, or out, or anywhere she wants really, but she up’d her game recently when we visited Mister LK at his office. She took her bossiness to a whole new level!
Auntie Sh got engaged last week & we got to see the main event! We went to the Bryant Park Grill to wait with the family & watch…then have a nice lunch! A entertained many restaurant patrons that day by running from table to table giving them a singing and dancing show! I wish I had gotten that on video…but I didn’t and she’ll have to rely on my memory for this one! (So I’m documenting it here!)
Auntie Sh + J look very happy & we wish them the best of everything!
The weather has been really amazing…and there has been no excuse not to get outside and to the park lately. Going with friends is always better! Our friend O came with us last week & we had a blast! Check out this blonde, blue eyed lady!
A had a blast at the park with O…thanks for spending the day with us!
I do love my little munchkin! She gives the best kisses!
Now…for all the Mommies out there that are readers and not faint of heart…go out and get (an electronic copy) of Fifty Shades of Grey. Make sure you have lots of things to entertain your kids with, for you will need about 3-4 days to get through the series. If you’re like me…or my friends…or any woman I know really…
Be ready to blush. A lot. But the story is addictive…
If you are a relative of mine…don’t read the book…please.
Have a wonderful Thursday! We are off to see our wonderful friends the R’s today…can’t wait to come back with pictures!
What do you think a 22 month old prays for?
Maybe she’s praying for longer hair so she looks more like a girl!
I’m praying for patience! Apparently and NOT surprisingly, she was a real angel with Grandma and Auntie H this weekend. Playing nicely, being funny, letting them change her diaper without kicking them in the face…you know…all the behaviors she saves for everyone EXCEPT her Mommy.
She just thinks it is funny to torture me! It’s ok though…I love her anyway…and I hope she is praying for that long hair AND my sanity!
Our last day in Buffalo Grove was a beautiful day! Very different than our first freezing windy day, it was sunny and warm and the perfect day to play in the grass! And that is exactly what we did!
Thanks again to the B family for a wonderful trip! We hope we see you again very soon! In Long Beach or Chicago…it will certainly be a great time!
Sending you lots and lots of love
The suburbs of Chi-town really have awesome grown up activities. Everything seems to involved fun, food & drinks! Last time we were in town we got to practice our Bocce skillz, and this time we got to race cars! Fine…they were Go Carts, but they were pretty cool (even though I sat on the sidelines and watched since I was carrying a 2 year old tantrum thrower!) The consensus of everyone who raced was that Cousin B is a lunatic on the road and when you hear the screeching around the bed, it is him & beware! He did win though.
Next up…Party at the pool & shuffleboard tables!
