Foto Friday: My Sister's Keeper

This week brought us a visit from a punk leprechaun, among other things. It could have been worse. At least our little green guy didn't carry an explosive device.

Maybe it's because I just booked our Caribbean cruise (feel free to envy me) to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and we are so not taking the kids...but this week, it seems like the kids are enjoying having their little sister around.


This was the scene on Sunday. It was only Baby's second trip to church since our pediatrician forbid us taking her out in public until the weather warmed up. Boo was singing songs to her while I was getting dinner ready. It was very sweet so I had to take a picture. And if you have a Bumbo chair, don't you just love it? Baby likes sitting in it almost as much as her swing. Oh, and did you notice how they have matching socks? My cute sister-in-law sent them adorable crochet bead socks in matching colors for big sister and little sister.


And here is another reason why it's not safe for me to shower...I put Baby on her little floor gym (I know, I know...easy access for a three-year-old) and asked the Boy to talk to her so she wouldn't be lonely (she's very much a people-person - must get that from me). When I came out of my room, this is what I found. Hey, at least she was happy and having fun, not covered in marker or hidden under a pile of toys.

Boo had an "Art Night" at her school, with different crafty activities in various classrooms. Her first choice? The computer lab. So it's not just her toes that she gets from her father. She didn't want to use the paint program and draw pictures. She wanted to type.


I asked her want she was doing. Her answer? "Posting on my blog."

Maybe I do this too much...

No, you do not blog too much.

I am most jealous of your upcoming cruise.

Baby girl is SO cute!!

Me said...

I am totally envious about the cruise! Completely green with envy. Someday *sigh*

I like to think of our children as the future bloggers of America. We must teach them right!

SO said...

I love that she is "posting on her blog" Love it! Your kids are so cute. And I am so jealous about your cruise.

L only sat in his bumbo like twice (it was Molly's though so it's not like I wasted any money.) And he only loved his swing like for 2 days! HA! YOu must have a mellow little girl:)

I'm coming over from Blog Stalkers Unite, asking for your help. I am in the running for a round trip airfare paid ticket to Connecticut, to meet a friend I became acquainted with through blogging. She is a super fun person and is holding this contest. I entered a funny story titled "Grapejuice Floaties, Now Marry Me." The person whose story receives the most votes will win a trip to meet this generous lady, whom I'm hoping to meet. The voting ends tonight I believe. I am ahead for now but there is a story coming up from behind out of nowhere and I would so, so, appreciate your help. Her blog is www.becausemomsaidso.blogspopt.com and the voting is on the sidebar on the right. "Grapejuice, Floaties" Just go there and cast a vote for me, please. Thanks so much-you're awesome! ♥

How cute are they?!?! I am suprised you didnt freak when you saw the baby in the stroller!! I would have!

Brooke said...

I do envy you, for your trip and the adorable pictures you get of your kids.

Uh...Brett said the term "blog" should be changed to "brag" and I agree...a cruise!?! When are you going? Lucky Girl!

Also, I love the baby in the stroller-looks like he's ready to babysit for ya. I used to lock the baby in the bathroom with me when I showered, I think my boy would not only load his sister in the stroller, but then introduce her to stairs! Frightening!

Kelly said...

Ahh look at them all sweet together. Yes I LOVED the bumbo. Sat Kyla in it on the coffee table (I know bad momma) when I would start feeding her baby food. We didn't have a high chair yet and it was easy clean up.

Bobie said...

They didn't have bumbo's when my kidies were babies. At least I didn't know about them.... Adorable pics.

Emma said...

Great pics. Is Baby in a doll stroller? Oh my! I love the socks, so cute!

Jo said...

Oh my, a little scary but so very cute!!!
