13 Thursday

Wouldn't you know it, just when my camera completely breaks down, there suddenly appears five million zillion things that I want to take pictures of! Stink. I've narrowed it down to 13 in honor of 13 Thursday:

13 photos I wish I had ...

  1. The playgroup we had yesterday that just kept growing and growing ... the kids were all fantastic, the conversation was hilarious ... I wish I had a photo to go with the experience.
  2. I finished a little red sailor dress, but got no photos of the handiwork.
  3. The 6 girls, like good little ducks, trailing behind their swimming teacher, Miss Erin.
  4. Sophie jumping off the diving board for the first time.
  5. The look of pure pride on Sophie's face after the jump. (or maybe the look of relief on mine that I didn't have to cause a scene and go push her off ... not that I would have done that ...)
  6. Maddie and Sophie having a sword fight with their noodles in the pool this afternoon. Yes, girls have sword fights, too. Those princesses have to defend their castles, I guess.
  7. Eliza eating spaghetti for the first time. Okay, eating is not the right word. Help me out here. What exactly is it that babies do with spaghetti?
  8. All 3 girls sitting in the floor playing with puzzles.
  9. The look on Sophie's face when she realized Maddie was under the impression that Goofy's name was, um, "Poopy".
  10. The girls laughing and cutting up in the floor this evening, as we made "watermelon toes" with pink and green nail polish and a sharpie. (thanks, Barrett!)
  11. The results of our toe-painting!
  12. Eliza pulling up on the chair, and the crib, and the basket, and the shoe, ...
  13. The girls tomorrow when they wear their new matching watermelon dresses.

Well, I've got the memories. But I'm pretty forgetful. :(

I would have liked to have seen Sophie jumping off the diving board. Pride is so cute on little kids!
