Lord knows we are ready.

Snuggles.

29 Mar

I’ve been a snuggler these days. I now hug Nadia and tell her I love her every day when she leaves. I snuggle with momma and daddy in front of the TV. And most of all, I snuggle after naps. Especially when Bess is still asleep and I don’t have to be the macho Big Boy that I am to her.

Here I am. Daddy did the cooking because I occupied momma.

We are in each other’s heads.

Cheerios

28 Mar

“Chee-os” or “cee-uhl”

I just taught my sister how to eat it by eating hers.

Box

28 Mar

Whenever the doorbell rings, I think it’s:
A) Nadia
B) Terry, the UPS man
C) a box
D) our groceries

All options compel me to make a beeline for the door and welcome the guest/item in. Why so excited? Because if it’s option C on a day like today, I’ll find myself in a fireman raincoat from Eddie drinking out of this awesome straw.

I love her so much.

Content Girl

23 Mar

Not only is this girl just chillin’ while she gets her fingernails trimmed, but Brother finally learned how to actually shoot the camera phone at a subject. (Us!)

Bess now has a paparazzi following.

Long Live Nine Months

23 Mar

No more log rolling — I crawl where I want to go.  My hair is all over the place, finally able to be held in place by a barrette or rubber band.  I scrunch my nose, smile an enormous gummy grin, and light up when you make eye contact with me.  I only want to play with Brother’s toys.  Baby toys are for the birds.  I love gnawing on pizza crust, bagels, and crackers.  I get a little chatty from time to time – mama/dada/baba/lala is pretty much my favorite.  I have sweet little chubby thighs and rosy red cheeks.  I’m pretty drooly and some rice grains are starting to show through my gums, though nothing has broken through.  In the meantime, I’ll stick everything in my mouth possible.  I remain easy as pie.  Except when my brother takes my things…

*Note I fell off the couch midway through my photo shoot – something that happens more often given the ratio of adults to children here.
