My baby's blue eyes. They are simply breathtaking. People always stop me to comment on her eyes. I love them. I'm not sure where she gets them from, one of her uncles I think, but she didn't get them from Chris or I.

So I haven't taken day 15 or day 17 yet. So we will come back to those. I am leaving for vacation in the morning and wanted to make sure I got these up before I left. Sorry to be jumping around but I need a little more practice to get those right.
Day 16- Mason/Jelly Jar

Then there is little miss PhePhe...
Then there is my husband. I love the man, I really do. Even when this is what he does every single time I pointed the camera at him...
**************on a completely different note*****************
My lovely mother in law got me 3 months of a fruit of the month club subscription for my birthday. My first shipment finally showed up yesterday. I was so excited I barley had time to clean them off before we devoured them.
And there was NOTHING left of it. Little miss loves her some berries. She had blackberries for breakfast and strawberries for lunch. Nothing wrong with a little fruit.

Day 12 was a sunflare. I almost forgot to take this picture and then I rushed outside right before sunset to get it. This is the first time I've tried to do this but I'll be playing around with sun flares some more in the future.

So instead I decided to take pictures of my tomatoes on my back deck because yes, tomatoes are a fruit.

Here is the picture I took originally. My favorite books: Harry Potter with my Kindle in front of them. I love my Kindle. All the books I could ever want right at my finger tips. But it really doesn't compare with holding those books and turning the pages. There is something magical about a real book.

That changed this morning. When I went outside I realized that while there might not be any clouds in the sky there were plenty on the ground. So I figured fog worked just as well for clouds.
I took a couple. I think they look beautiful.

If anyone else wants to join in the fun the original blog post is actually from A Feathered Nest and featured here: http://projectsforyournest.blogspot.com/2011/05/photo-fun-in-june-come-join-party.html
Come play with us!
We'll start with the move. We were suppose to be moving to NYC and I was pretty excited about it, after having a brief panic attack when I was told that is where we were going. I have several friends there and I figured this would be an amazing experience and something I would love for the kids to look back on. But my husband was not so very quietly freaking out. My husband would have really been a fish out of water. He is such a farm boy and to throw him in the "concrete jungle" might have killed him. Seriously. So he was more than thrilled when they decided to move his plane out of NYC and base him back in Chicago. So it looks like the big move will now be to the windy city.
I have been trying to get the house all ready to put on the market. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and I want everything to look perfect before we even call the realtor. Its hard to have a perfect house with two kids. Even harder to paint when you have a mobile baby. So not much has been accomplished.
We live on a street that is full of almost identical houses. I hate it. But its good for figuring out how much you can get for your house when you decide to sell. The house behind us sold within a month for a great price. I was really excited and started working hard on getting everything done and told Chris to call the realtor. Then we noticed the moving van at the next door neighbors house. Turns out they had already bought another house. They got to the realtor before we did and priced their house to sell. They ask $20,000 less then the house behind us sold for. Luckily it sold within the week but now we are nervous that we won't be able to get what we need since they sold so cheap. I swear I'm renting from here on out. I don't need this stress!
More updates later... I hear the little one screaming from her crib!

It doesn't matter what she is doing, as soon as I open the door to the dishwasher, here she comes from across the room. Crawling as fast as her little arms and legs will let her. And then she pulls up and has the time of her life. If the bottom rack is pulled out she pulls out silverware and either throws them on the floor or chews on them. If its closed she plays with the water on the door, or tries to climb completely IN the dishwasher.
There is something wonderful about sitting inside and watching it rain. I love falling asleep listening to the raindrops hitting the roof and I love how green everything is becoming.
|The kids can't get enough of watching the rain, but Rowen kept chanting, "Rain Rain Go Away Come Again Some Other Day."|
|However, you can't pry Phoebe away from that door!|
Phoebe has recently graduated from the baby bathtub to the big kids tub. Bath time has since turned into one of my favorite times of the day. She loves it, esp since she gets to take a bath with her big brother every day. She gets so excited every time I put her in the tub. Like she's saying, "Really Mom? I really get to get in here!?"
4.) My daughter's grins
|I love the way she looks at me. "Yeah Mom, I know I'm cute!"|
|Look at her looking at him. That's love.|
6.) Daddy Time
Its a new thing, and it makes me laugh every single time she does it. She crawls over to the door, pulls up to standing and starts banging on the door screaming, "Row Row!" I love it! He secretly does to.
