It is AMAZING to me how natural it is for litle girls to Love girl stuff.
Elle loves dolls, dogs in purses, play makeup...and she gets into my stuff. I didnt teach her to like it, she just came that way. I remember when she was 10 months old walking down the baby doll aisle at target...she immediately came to life laughing and reaching for the dolls!
this is a sad picture...because it shows a couple of her mosquito bites. She and robbie get 100's of bites from playing in the backyard!

It's AMAZING the things Rob and Robbie find in our backyard. This week it was a tiny salamander, last week a frog, and the week before a lizard with a giant mouth! Hopefully all of these pets (that we keep contained for no more that a couple hours) will hold off the kids from wanting a dog!

one of the many streaks on her scalp
This is a little better picture of her legs...I picked her up, fed her dinner (without a bib...like she needed one at that point) and took her to the pool! The chlorine helped to lighten the colors a little!

What? Oh, are you wondering if Elle participated in a clogging/square dancing show? No, her Mom made her wear it! I made it the day before and somehow didnt realize how silly it was until Rob was completely embarrassed to take her anywhere in it! Oh well!
I think Robbie was in HEAVEN playing with swords with Smith, (a little guy his age) He is used to being surrounded with girlies...so he had SO much fun. He never wanted to leave!

Elle continues to be accident prone. As you can see her new injury on her head from falling down at the pool. Luckily, our lifeguards took her in and bandaged her up. I got her a doll sized table and chairs...that she immediately decided was her size. She sat on the chair up to the table, and stacked crackers and assorted play food on it! As you can see, she is also really good at making castles with her food. I finally let it go, and I give her a fork or spoon and let her eat by herself. It is really messy, but really easy! She says "hi" to anything that moves...birds, planes, dogs, dolphins, etc!
The other day Robbie was looking at my wedding ring. He asked where I got it and I told him that Daddy gave it to me when we go married. He said "when I grow up to be a daddy, I am going to Marry you, and I will get you another Ring like that!" Of course I said "Yes!"
The other day at Target, he was doing his own shopping (as always). He was dragging around a Superman gift bag, filling it with treasures. He came running up and threw some lucky charms in my basket and said "Mom, you got to try this cereal...Yeah, Baby!!!" That is his new thing, yelling "Yeah Baby" after everything!
Yesterday he said in the car, "Mom, Im frustrated that I dont have a new sword."
He has started saying "Mom that was such a fun day" after everything we do...that makes it nice.
He laughed his head off at the Sea Lion show at Sea World...so I think we'll make that a regular.
Today he SWAM for the first time (in his life jacket) He just kept going around the pool and jumping in by himself! Lessons start Monday, pics to come!
