What we did today





A conversation:


Me - "After Eliza has her bottle, we'll go swimming." (in our little blow-up pool)


Sophie - (taking a deep breath) "While you feed her ... I'm just going to put on my bathing suit, not go outside, I'm just going to open the door, I'm just going to go outside not go to far, I'm just going to go stand by the pool and look at it, not get in it, I'm just going to stand in it. Okay, later tater."


Now, add about 5 hand-gestures for each word while saying it as fast as you can and you'll just about have it.




Here is Miss Eliza Belle. Can you tell what she is wearing? It's a skirtini! (minus the tini)
Here are the girls. I said, "smile! I'm going to take your picture!" So, evidently that's code for "hike your leg up to your nose."
Later they informed me that they were being "ballerina mermaids". Ah, yes. Of course. Duh.

That crazy Sophie is a girl after my own heart! A day at the pool sounds perfect right now - this heat is ridiculous. Glad you are having fun!

Ballerina Mermaids...naturally - they look like they know what they are doing!

That was HILARIOUS! I'm still laughing--she cracks me up!!! We will be in W. Memphis for Christmas, I'm thinking we're going to come out to Jonesboro for a playdate so I can hang out with Sophie!;)
