Later on when we got married, Greg unpacked little Rose in our new house, and it seemed that she must have gone out at some point and got a few well placed pieces of jewelery.
Last week, Rose took a second journey. The boys and I decided to send her off to Iraq to keep Greg company and participate in photographic adventures so that the boys can feel a sense of familiar in the different things that Greg will be showing them. (Idea thanks to my mother-in-law.)
The boys are looking forward to seeing where Rose turns up next!
The boys in Greg's shoes:
When I got Lavella up from her nap today, she was wearing a pair of my shorts over her head, with her arm through a leg-hole.
I couldn't stop laughing! I must have left them hanging over the side of her playpen when I changed out of them last night, so she just decided to put them on herself.
Tonight at dinner, Lavella was learning to use a spoon for the first time:
Her beginning efforts were more like sucking on a lollypop, but thankfully the refried beans hung on to the spoon and were a good teaching medium. She caught on pretty well towards the end -- she has never been so fascinated with her dinner! The only trouble was that she would get super offended every time I had to take the spoon to re-load.
Two random videos for you. First, this 15-year-old girl can sing. Oh my gosh, can she sing:
