Careful the things you say...

Careful the things you say
Children will listen
Careful the things you do
Children will see and learn
Children may not obey, but children will listen
Children will look to you for which way to turn
To learn what to be
Careful before you say 'Listen to me'
Children will listen

-Stephen Sondheim, Into The Woods

I though of this the other day when TQ told this little story::
"I was in the laundry room folding clothes and John walked in, held something up and said 'Biteen, what the hell is this?'"

Oh boy, are we in trouble...

Food, Glorious Food

Over the last few weeks Lily has started showing a keen interest in food. I've been trying to hold her off, but the other night at dinner when she literally grabbed pasta from my plate we decided it was time.

After some research we decided sweet potatoes would be a good first food. Jeff picked some up and we mixed it with a bit of mama-milk to thin it and make the flavor a bit more familiar. We got Lily all strapped into her cool seat and put a bib on. She was loving all of the attention and flashed some smiles at us.

She was pretty unsure at first...

But we kept trying and at the and she seemed pretty happy!

To Infinity


John's alter ego- Buzz LightYear. He and I made the wings today while Lily took a loooong nap (she is still sleeping!!)
I love my boy :)

July Pics

Me and my girl...

Lily and Danny, aren't they cute in their babylegs and Shibori from Three Pines Studio?
This is how John and Owen look at the beginning of the week::

And this is how they look after 7 days of full-on FUN (and not much sleep)::
