Broccoli v. Raspberry Jello

What kind of crazy child would rather eat broccoli (three helpings) and SPIT OUT her raspberry jello?

The Boss, that's who.

And the other, relatively normal children. . .

She's Got The Scoot

We're this close to crawling baby! I've got the backwards scoot down pat (not to be confused with the boot scoot and boogie). Give me a few days and I'll be right there with the boss!

Look out Mom, here I come!

The Thanksgiving Play

Drama and Pooh Bear wrote a Thanksgiving play, made all the puppets, signs, tickets, everything for a major production. They invited their cousins, E-man and Roo, to be in the play. I see Tony's in all their futures!

The "cariters" (characters). . .

The Players (the Boss is the stage manager). . .

Brava! Brava!

The stunning back drop for the play was my parents brand spankin' new family room with built in book case/fireplace/mantel/amazing flat screen. This is the best picture I have, sorry, but trust me, it's amazing.

The Bald Spot

In the past I have learned to live with "baby pattern baldness." (The spot on the back of a baby's head that has all the hair rubbed off from sleeping on their backs.) Drama, Pooh Bear, and the Boss all had it and it does grow back in, that I'm not worried about. However, the older girls' bald spots were small, a rectangle about 1.5 inch wide by 1 inch tall right on the back of their little noggins. Aria, the little sweetness who's huge toothless smile can instantly make your day, has a ginormous bald spot.

(seriously, that face!)

The entire back of her head is bald. . .

My theory is that she always has to be on the look out for the Boss, cause you never know where she is going to show up, or fall out of the sky (she can climb into Aria's crib, oh dear). She is always looking around, trying to figure out where people are, what they are doing and how she can get in on the action.

The top and sides are pretty whispy now too. I've heard that if you shave their little heads it will all grow back in thick and beautiful. Maybe I will have Mark give her his hair cut.?.?.

And just for fun. . .

Pooh Bear's Running Commentary

I almost deleted this without watching it. Man, that would have been a mistake.

On the way to IF for Thanksgiving vaca, the girls were "soooo bored mom!" So I gave them my camera to entertain them. Pooh Bear took this video of herself. I think this is when the battery died. Too bad. She's full of insight.


Fall Fun

The Boss enjoying the fall weather. . .

Random Photos of The Boss

I have been horribly remiss in my blogging activities lately. I have a good excuse, my kitchen remodel is kicking my rear. I finally had the new counter tops installed and they are amazing. I also finished the bottom cabinet doors. I'm working on the drawer fronts and after I finish those and we can get the child locks back on, I'm taking a break. Once I get the top cabinet doors finished I will take pictures and post my new kitchen in all it's glory.

Even though I haven't been keeping up on the bolgisphere, I have been taking lots of photos, so this post is dedicated to the random photos I have taken of The Boss. I probably take more photos of her that anyone else because, well for one she's always with me and two she is always doing something insanely funny.

Look at that face. I seriously love that face. . .

She believes that this is how one wears a tutu properly. . .

Rocking out. . .

Christmas shopping. . .

She loves to sit in things. Buckets, boxes, drawers. . .

Or lay in things. . .
