sleeping babies

Her biggest present in the smallest package is Maggie. We got Maggie on Alayna's birthday, Thursday, so she's been in our family for 3 whole days, now. Alayna got to pick her out at the shelter. She's a healthy, happy 9 week old siamese-ish ball of fur. The papers say Birmanx and Birman, neither of which we're convinced actually exist, but she's cute anyway. Posted by Picasa
This is what happens when you let a 3 year old dress herself. It took her three times going up and down the stairs to remember to get her underwear on, though. What you can't see are the paint spots on the pants. These are the one she paints walls in. She was comfortable, though, and I suppose that's all that matters. At least since we weren't leaving the house. Posted by Picasa

Bryan's sister, Annie, had her first baby on the 15th of June, Roman Aaron Easter. They came down for Alayna's birthday party on the 9th of July, so he is almost a month old, here. I like the loving look she gives to all babies. But she thinks that this baby is partly her's so she loves him even more. Posted by Picasa


Alayna got her bikini for her 3rd birthday. She keeps saying that it's not the big-kid suit. She thinks the one-piece with Cinderella on the front and "Princess" on the back is the big-kid suit. She about to step into her blow-up pool on the deck, so that's why she looks impatient. The look says: "Put down the camera and open the door, Mom." Posted by Picasa
