Talking two

Driving home from the store Lil & I chatted away about the birds,butterflies and sang about how "He's got the whole world in his hands"- naming every one she knows. as we neared our home this conversation occured:

L: mommy Abby is sad
Me: oh! Why don't you give her a hug
L: yeah, Abby hungry. I feed her my boobs.
Me: (trying not to lol)okay.
L: nursing pad please!

Oh what a night...

my sleeping through the night baby has changed his mind... after a few busy weeks of vacationing here & there he has decided that sleeping all night just isn't his thing anymore. if it isn't a 4am poop or an accidental roll over that leaves him flailing like a turtle on it's back, then it is hunger because at a whopping 16 pounds of course you are hungry at night. i really don't mind seeing him in the night actually, but i think my daughter might be getting jealous BECAUSE the highlight of my night was at 4am when my daughter tip toeing into my room & as I lay there feeding Rowen she looked up at me sleepy eyed and said, "mama i miss you"... come on? melt my heart & come cuddle with me!

Orcas Island Camping


video
We just spent a wonderfully long Labor Day weekend on Orcas Island, camping at Moran State Park with the Latimer Family. We took Lillian camping at the same place two years ago for her first camping trip & now Rowen's first camping trip was there too! Happy Campers! Our kids love camping & we do so much that we just might have to squeeze another camping trip in before Fall... but we will have to replace our air mattress before then because it was like sleeping on an awful water bed.

Our neighbors while camping had a little girl who was 6 six (only child) & really liked Lillian. Here is my favorite conversation with her:

Me:Are you from here?
K: No. I am from America.
Me: Oh! Well this is America. Are you from Washington?
K: No. I am from Seattle.
Me: Oh cool us too!

like e diamond

after bath time i lathered my little ones naked bodies in lotion. lillian climbed up to the table to have a pre-bed snack of yogurt as i dressed the littlest in his jammies. i looked up from the couch after a moment to see my daughter rubbing yogurt all over herself exclaiming, "yogurt lotion!" with a twinkle in her eye that says, "mama I'm brilliant!"..... i laughed and then back to the bath for a quick rinse off.

"like e diamond in da sky" is the new name of the more commonly known song, "twinkle, twinkle little star". my singing two year old's song book of melodious bliss knows nothing of the titles or bounds of how a song should be sung. i love the freedom that two brings... so independent, adventurous and full of wonder! her favorite song currently is "happy birthday" sung to a personal tune & her newly made up song is "butterfly morning", which is one of my personal favorites.

"hey buddy" lillian shouts at her brother as he begins to fuss... the mere sight of her face smashed up in his makes his frown become a smile.
