Womanhood as seen through the eyes of my 2 year-old

Grown women always have a purse on one arm.


They wear really cool hats.


They drink copious amounts of coffee.


They are ALWAYS holding a baby (wonder where she got that notion?).


Apparently, they sometimes feed the aforementioned baby their coffee.


And they are always on the go.


I wish I looked half as cool being a grown woman as Lydia does pretending to be one.

'Nuff Said

The onesie and the smile say it all.

Life With Three

video

This video is a pretty good representation of just how chaotic Violet's day to day life is at only 6 weeks old.

BJ and Lydia

I remember when he was afraid he wouldn't know what to do with a daughter.

You know you've been in newborn-baby land for a while when:

-you walk out of the house and the wind blows a forgotten burp cloth off your shoulder and across the yard.

-you become an accidental exhibitionist. I didn't realize until I'd walked out into my back yard and sat down in a lawn chair that my shirt was pulled up over my bra from the last time I'd breastfed. It's that bad.

-6 hours of sleep is the new 8 hours of sleep. I feel positively invigorated after a 6 hour night.

-a trip to Walmart (aka the worst place on earth) becomes a luxury for the sole reason that it isn't your house.

-your husband spends an hour putting an additional hard drive on your computer to compensate for all the pictures like below that are clogging up you memory space. Worth it.

A boy being a boy

Shepherd loves to play with his Transformer toy that Mamm and Pap got him back in July. I love to eaves drop on his play time to hear the dialogue he creates as he is playing. I have no idea where he comes up with this stuff, but here is what I overheard this morning: 

Deep Voice: I'm a big bad scary man and I will never love you. I will eat you.
High Voice: No, don't eat me. I'm a good little man.
Deep Voice: No. I'm a robot and I will eat you.

The Hair Issue

Sometime in the past week, Violet acquired a tiny mohawk. I'm not sure when it happened, but I'm in love with the Kewpie-doll look on her.



I'm hoping that this mohawk portends to a repeat of Lydia's hair during her 3-9 months-old phase.


That hair was just way to awesome not to repeat.

Shepherd is also spiked these days, but that is because big boys who go to school spike their hair. Obviously.


And since I have an up-to-date picture of Violet and Shepherd on this post, here is a picture of my beautiful Lydia after being told she can't play with the camera. She's pretty even when she's sad.
