We're back from our exhausting whirlwind wedding week trip and I did a very bad thing. I had tons of pictures to show, especially some of my beautiful cousin to be and her two babies (one is only 2 weeks old!) buuuut like I said , I did a bad thing. Last night I pulled off these two pictures of my most adorable cousin because the last time I took pictures of her it took me 8 months to get them to her Mama and I wanted it done before I forgot. Well, I left my camera on and hooked into my computer and it drained my battery and now I can't find my battery charger!
Ack! I'm hoping Nathan can pull them off my card using the printer, we'll see. We had a great time and it was a lovely wedding! I don't have any pictures of the gorgeous bride which I am very sad about, I'll just have to wait for the real photographers, I guess.

Some classic Rosie moments... it's my last day to be Mamma to a 2 year old. I'm just a little sad and weepy. Okay, maybe a lot.

She loves her dino's and her BIG, BIG bubbles.
Sigh.... how much longer until that soft babyness is gone? I can still see the hint of a an elbow dimple. And the slight pudge in those little starfish hands.
That thumb.... and her messy, messy hair!
Playing with the shop vac with me trying to ignore just how gross that air coming out must be.
My little rock star and her naked heavy baby. Totally classic Rosie complete with marker tattoos.
Shhh. Fairy sleeping.

She loves sunglasses. They make her world so happy.

I got some muddy

Rosie is obsessed with money... we keep finding it stashed all over the house and we had to put their piggy bank up in the closet to keep it's contents protected. So we're getting her a cash register for her birthday.... good idea, eh?

Oh and those are the famous Thomas unmentionables ... she's such a silly girl.

Grass Fight

So the other day we cut 3 months worth of grass and weeds. Rosie was taking a late, late nap so we got some unusual alone time with Evelyn.

I don't know if you can tell but her feet were green from the fresh cut grass - ewww!
Warning: do not try this at home. Will cause allergy attacks and massive hysterical fits upon next hair brushing.
Some much needed Daddy loving. They are just starved for Daddy attention right now, he's regularly getting home after 7:00 and sometimes even after 8:00. An hour long commute on top of a demanding new job is not a good thing.
Notice the horse/unicorn is never far away no matter what the play is.
We've had many, many moments of worry over this one and we know you've been there right along with us. In the past 6 months or so ... wow have things changed. You'll be amazed when you next spend some time wit her. Unless you knew about it you wouldn't realize she was so, so late in communicating. She still mixes up phrasing every now and then and sometimes her structures sound "off" but we really feel it's more of a habit than anything else. Right now we're trying to get her into a Montessori School for next year. I still feel homeschooling is an amazing thing and I would still be planning for it if I felt like it was in Evelyn's best interests. But we feel that she needs an outside source of confidence to get her started on the educational/learning road. My big worry now is Rosie - we can do one tuition but two? Oh my word! I either need to start getting lots of bookings or go back to school or something and try to get a career! It's a two income world now, that's for sure.
