Another week of quirky everyday moments captured using nothing but a cell phone camera!
Other blog posts can be bothered with silly things like shutter speed, aperture, and ISO…but not Fridays!!!
I finally gave in to all the hype and bought a copy of The Help.
I haven’t gotten past chapter 3.
I don’t hate it, but I can’t seem to get into it either.
It’s been a really crazy and tough week around here…but it’s also been a preciously sweet week too.
The kids have been playing together so well this week.
All three of them. Together.
See this picture…look at how tenderly Lu is holding onto Jill…and those sweet smiles.
I love my family.
So so so much.
It makes my heart hurt.
It’s probably not the safest seat in the Gaucho, but they were having a blast together.
And mom jogged (okay, power walked) alongside them.
Hearing their giggles as they race around the cul de sac?
Doesn’t get better than that my friends.
Jill is getting so strong and stable pulling up on things and standing for long periods of time.
Which has made a tremendous difference in the relationships between the siblings.
In this case, the family that wrenches together, stays together.
Henry was talking to her about spark plugs and assorted engine stuffs.
Remember these suncatcher things from when you were a kid?
I thought they’d be a fun Mommy and Henry craft.
But dude…they’re HARD!
Those tiny beads are squirrely little things!
Mental note: Trust the manufacturers when they say it’s for ages 6 and up.
My girls have THE greatest bed head.
Jill’s long, wispy, pin straight hair is always a windblown disaster after a nap.
Lucy’s thick curls always form a crazy crown around her head.
Oh, and there’s the gigantic cut on her forehead too.
You know, from when she faceplanted into the front of Henry’s Gaucho.
(She was running to get in it with him and tripped on her way over…with her forehead meeting the grill of the truck quite nicely.)
We went to the beach.
For the first time.
Since the girls were born.
We live 15 minutes away.
But do you see this???!!!
Panic. Horrors. Anxiety.
Makes. my. skin. crawl.
We’re puppy sitting for a few days.
Henry and Macy were fast friends.
It almost makes me want a puppy.
Oh wait. No.
I have two full grown Golden Retrievers already.
But she is awfully cute.
This bag was FULL.
Actually, that’s not true…there were three missing.
And suddenly I realized Lucy was quiet…too quiet.
I found her sitting on the floor finishing up.
Not only was the bag EMPTY…but there weren’t so much as wrappers to be found.
Her diapers will be…interesting in the coming days.
I wish I was kidding.

And with that…it’s YOUR turn!

Happy Friday friends!
