Getting to Know You.....

getting to know all about you - that song was going through my head when I was opening up my new camera. I'm a nerd, but you guys rock!!! Thanks for all the advice on which camera to get. We are loving our little pocket-sized canon powershot! I've been playing around with her, trying to learn how to use her. It's pretty easy, and I must say that I cheated. Sean read all the directions and then gave me the cliff-notes version. He rocks, too ;).

So, of course I want to share a few new pictures with my new camera. The girls played outside yesterday while we redid a front flower bed. They even got to wear their new swimsuits, and Hattie even ran around the sprinkler for a while. We are loving the warmer weather.

So here is big sister girl.

*asks me to paint her fingernails atleast once a day.
*still sucks her thumb.
*loves The Little Mermaid
* has such an imagination.
*won't take her nap about twice a week these days.
*is in bed and usually asleep by 7 pm.
*has become so klutzy lately.
*woke up with a dry diaper for the first time this morning!
*is growing up too fast for Mama's liking.

And here is little sister girl.

*has become so vocal in the last week or so. Shrieking is her new favorite past-time.
*is (dare I type it) finally sleeping through the night consistently.
*is wearing a size 18 month swimsuit. She's 7 months old. You do the math.
*has an infectious laugh.
*loves her big sister more than anything and anyone. That includes Mama :/.
*is becoming quite the mama's girl despite her love for Hattie.
*has started having stranger anxiety, especially with men.
*is my laid-back angel baby.
*is in bed and asleep by 6:30 most nights.

Wisdom From the Pope

“The inalienable dignity of every human being and the rights which flow from that dignity - in the first place the right to life and the defense of life - are at the heart of the church's message." Pope John Paul ended his address, saying: "In spite of divisions among Christians, 'all those justified by faith through baptism are incorporated into Christ...brothers and sisters in the Lord.'" Pope John Paul 2
