For now, Anna doesn’t seem to mind to much.
Look, Ma! No hands!
Being the animal lover that I am (HA!) I just had to get a picture of these little mouths. We have kept an eye on this nest and got to see the birds right after they hatched. Even though I’m no amimal lover, I just couldn’t help feeling proud for the new Mama Bird and her sweet babies. Well, if I’m being totally honest, I also thought they would make for a cool picture. 🙂
And now, just a few more pictures of my sweet babies playing in the sun.
(Thank you for returning, sunshine!)
So, Anna is now wearing the clothes that Cate was wearing the summer she was born. And although she’s been wearing Cate’s clothes all along, this particular stage is, well, freaking me out a little. When did we get such a big girl?!
Anyway, check out this picture…
Does it look familiar?
Anyone else freaking out?!
I admit, the Anna picture this year, may have been, er, staged. :0)
(Oooooooooh and don’t you LOVE the quality difference in the pictures?! Yay for the Nikon D60!!!)
And then, dinner at Grandma’s house. Anna loves Gram.
At the end of the day I realized that I hadn’t taken a picture with my girls!
They were less than cooperative, but we got it! 🙂
Happy Mother’s Day, Mom.
And while, you know, guys, aren’t as forward with their emotions….I happen to know that both Corey and I think the world of his Mama too. She’s fun and funny and always willing to lend a hand. She’s kind and caring and she loves us all so very much. She has a special way of tuning in to people, she knows just what everyone likes and dislikes. She takes the time to listen, really listen too. We can’t even begin to count how many times we’ve said, “We’re SO thankful our kids are so close to their grandparents.”
Happy Mother’s Day, Mama.
And so, this Sunday, I will enjoy a quiet day with my precious little family, and maybe spend a little time reflecting on the best gift my girls could ever give me, they’ve made me a mommy.
My beautiful “Happy Mother’s Day/Happy Last Day of the Semester” flowers. :0) Oh, and yes, school is done for the summer! I have LOVED teaching again and plan to return in the Fall, but for now, I’m going to enjoy, like every teacher should, my summer off.
