Camera Funny Business

Posted on September 25, 2006

So I was downloading pictures from our time at the Taste of the North Country off the camera the other night. I thought I had downloaded all of the pictures from Mom and Abbie’s visit and stored them in a special folder. Imagine my surprise when I found a dozen odd pictures I had no idea existed. They were taken in the big room in the back of our house. It’s where Briar goes to listen to music very loud and “feen”, which means ‘spin.’ Sean and I often surprise each other as whoever is not on Briar duty pops their head into the room and sees mad dancing, rapid spinning or crazy chase antics going on…better than a gym membership. It looks like…

Spinning with Grandma

Posted on September 25, 2006

Avery discovered her own kind of spinning while Grandma was in town. After having a spinning toy set in front of her Avery demonstrated remarkable hand eye coordination as she grabbed the rings. She had no issues whatsoever, that is until Briar came over and let her know in no uncertain terms that it was her toy. Grandma calmed things down and ended the tummy time with a huge smile from Avery as reward.

Goofin’ and Lovin’

Posted on September 25, 2006

There’s always a whole lot of goofing around and loving each other in our house. All kidding aside though, look at Briar, she’s just messing around…look at that pose-flirting even when she’s not flirting. Oy…life is going to be tough for Daddy. And I am beginning to think Avery is going to be a bigger flirt than her sister.

Can’t make it up —> assignment in class Can’t make it up —> time lost over stupid stuff/people Can’t make it up —> missed appointment Can’t make it up —> things your kids do or say Patterns on the wall from a prism hanging in a sunlit window = Freckles Solid content of a soiled diaper depostied in toilet = Cookies Freckle on my shoulder = Circle, boo boo, or ‘nice and happy’ (depending upon the day) Briar continues to delight and amaze with her awareness of things around her, whether she is aware like we are or in her own special way.

It’s My Blog

Posted on September 24, 2006

…and I’ll shamelessly post photos of myself and the girls if I want to. So it’s been a while…thanks Pop. I actually loved hearing that someone missed my entries. I apologize you suffered not seeing your girls. We’re back! Not sure what happened, but I’ll not waste another minute wondering about it. We have made two trips to Gore for the gondola ride and both times had huge amounts of fun. Briar absolutely loves gathering rocks and sticks. Avery loves just about everything. She is so easy to be around. Strap me in the Baby Bjorn? Sure. Bounce me on your knee? Ok. Cradle me in your arms? N’kay. Prop me on a cushion while you vacuum? Absolutely. The only condition is that you…
