Emily has been a cheereading for 6 months now (since April), participated in 2 camps, learned a ton of cheers and dances and this weekend, started performing.
We have some odd conversations around here, and this gem from this morning deserves documentation.
It is probably safe to say that Sidney is a typical kids when it comes to pasta. She LOVES it. And loves it in her lunch. Generally.
August was a HOT month, a VERY HOT month. So we spent a lot of time inside, heading out in the early morning to play.
July was not a hugely photographed month. We laid low most of the month, playing outside, playing inside. It felt like we were always busy but it also somehow felt like we had time to do nothing. Emily saw her first real live nighttime fireworks, we spend more time grilling than ever, and we did a ton of crafts, as always…
Spencer. My boy. My little man. My cuddle bug.
Sidney. My firecracker. My smurfette. My littlest princess baby.
These tiny babies are about to turn 4.
Last night Sidney told me she needed to go upstairs and for me to not come up until she told me it was ok. A while later she came down and told me that I needed to see her room because she cleaned the whole room and that I could not wait to see it )her exact words) and that it was beautiful! And she was right! (then again, her room is generally pretty neat but still…)
She made her bad (ok, no bouncing quarters, no hospital corners, but not terrible for a 3 3/4 year old), straightened up her toys, etc. Then she asked to take pictures of it to show Daddy because “he will not believe it mommy!”. These are her pictures. Uncropped, untouched, exactly as she took them. Minus the duplicates and the blurry ones.
