Little Choppers

Here's our little bunny rabbit in all her glory with a pile of Cheerios and not even strapped into her seat. She was feelin' special. Of course Jane was right there too, but she's not in most pictures because we're potty training and unfortunately she was nekked from the waist down. But check out Kate munching on the green chair.

She really thought it was delicious.

And even though she won't let us get a look at those two upper teeth, here's proof that they're there:

John says it looks like she's smoking a Cheerio here:

The worst part about the Cheerio stage is that this happens:

And then this happens:
(Look at that hilarious foot!)

And today, even this happened (gross):

Anyway, I am so sorry for being gone from this blog for so long. I really do not know what happened to me. One thing, I was in a photographic slump and really wasn't getting any good shots. I was so sad about the pictures I got at Jane's birthday party. But whatever. I don't know why else. I know how annoying it is when you go to check a blog and that same stinking picture is there for months and months. Sorry I did that to you. If you're still there. I really will be shocked if anyone is still there.

Yesterday we went shopping with Carly & Holly. Here's some shots of the girls...they are always cute together.

Thanks for sticking around and I'll be back soon, I promise!!! LOTS more to share...including a very exciting (for me) full laundry room makeover with before and after shots! Just putting some finishing touches on it and then I'll share.


Jane Scarlett is three! She is sweet, thoughtful, bossy, stubborn, and musical. She has a great sense of humor and has already mastered the art of, "Just Kidding!" She loves her sister and is very much a mother hen, not only to Kate, but to all of us. She knows what she wants. She knows how things should be done (ha!). She loves all her grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins soooooo much. She expresses concern for others. She is very possessive of her alone time with especially grandma, but also me and John. She loves to help John outside. Like, as soon as he polishes a section of his car, she slops more soapy water on it to help him out. Or when he stands on a ladder, she stands at the bottom and shouts, "BE CAREFUL, DADDY!" Or when he plants a flower, she dumps 46 gallons of water on it. And he truly loves having her help. She also knows about clothes matching. If I try to throw a garbage outfit on her because we're not going anywhere, she often informs me that the pieces simply don't work together. She had a scary dream about cats last night. She hardly eats anything. She's a really bad dancer. We love her. So much.

We had an octopus party with a hilarious octopus cake. And candy galore.

Kate (10 months), Holly (17 months), and the birthday girl.

Kate thought the presents were the greatest. Especially this one with pom-poms on top. How do you spell pom-poms???

She couldn't keep her fingers out of the frosting. I didn't care.

Let's just pretend she doesn't have a curler in here hair in this picture.

Can't believe that little stinky is three.
