Summer Begins

Well, not officially, but around here it has. End of school means start of summer when a pre-schooler is involved. I've been thinking of everything possible to do to get out of the house and keep my kiddos occupied. Library, museum, park, pool, Publix. Publix? Yes...desperate times call for desperate measures. I am that weird woman who looks forward to going to Publix to push my kids in the oh-so-friendly "car" cart while Will chomps on a cookie and I stroll the cool air-conditioned ailes. Even if I don't have to actually buy anything. Today I just knew if I spent one more second cooped up in the house with my two I was going to scream. So I got the bright idea to head downtown to the River Walk and take along Will's best bud, Luke. Who cares that the humidity was 900%? And it was close to 90. Will and Luke had a good time and burned off steam (literally) before dinner. Tomorrow it's off to the pool, then another play date on Friday morning. See? I wasn't kidding.....we're looking for anything to do.

This is what you get when you ask them to smile...

Annely Blake didn't do too much.

Just for Fun

Some people (my parents) are screaming for more pics. So, here you go.

Peekaboo! Look bored. Look very, very bored.
Give me a kiss Annely Blake.

Are you ever going to walk Annely Blake?

Happy Mother's Day (late)

My old camera was dying, as evidenced by the pink fuzzy line around all of my pictures.

This is what I got for Mother's Day this year:

These are some of the pictures I took today....

Thanks mom! I love it!

Celebrating May

The weather has been so nice around here we've pulled out the baby pool and slip-n-slide! I took these a few days ago when it was 82 degrees....

and click here for pics from last night's 5th of May celebration at the Trammell's:

Little Princess

Stats for Annely Blake who went for her one year check-up this week.
Weight: 21 lb 3oz
Length: 28.5 inches
teeth: 8!
I checked just to be sure, because I thought I remembered Will being slightly heavier than she at one year, and he had reached her length at 7 months and her weight at 9 months! What she lacks in size she makes up for in personality, though! Her new name is going to be "banshee" because she delivers this unbelievably high ear piercing screech any time she's mad or excited. She says "da da, ma ma, nigh nigh, down, do (dog) and bye bye." She's still not walking, although she's getting close, and she's a great sleeper if you can get her down for the night :) So..... that's all I have for the 2nd member of our family. Will wanted his picture taken too. It's not often I can get him to look at the camera and smile so I took advantage of it.
