28/52

This week he: discovered his evil villain voice (from where??)... lots of defiant talk, eg. 'I not doing dat, you silly girl'... say whaat?! / convinced me to agree to a spur of the moment trip to Walden Pond, and 'swam' in sagging shorts before polishing off an enormous ice cream cone / spotted his first monarch butterfly of the season, they are his favorite / convinced all of us to agree to a spur of the moment trip to the zoo, where he also launched down the tallest slide I've ever seen. he's very persuasive that kid!

This week she: drank pond water, bath water, spray park water... she'd lap up every puddle if we let her / stood up once without pulling up on anything, that's still her main project these days / loved the giraffes at the zoo, and desperately wanted to grab them / spent lots of time giggling with her cute scrunched up nose /  took many naps with daddy (still no napping on her own though, not that we've really tried).

  1. Oh my goodness, that face! It is the epitome of three! I love seeing R on the move like that too. Your descriptions of your summer are just fantastic. Sounds like it's getting really exciting around there!

  2. These pictures so beautifully capture the stages they are going through (as you've described them)! So cute. I hope the defiant talk doesn't last too long...although my son never stopped. ;)

  3. Oh that scowl!! What a challenging time-- actually full of great memories too. And the littlest on the go too-- hang in there Mama!

  4. Oh, that is too funny! Made me laugh. "Silly girl." It is so cute (and lucky for them) that they are so adorable and don't know how to use proper language 100% of the time. Hehe And, the drinking water... we have a little of that over here as well. That and discovering that things can be stuck up your nose. Oy...

    1. Oh, the stuck up the nose trick is one of the few we haven't dealt with yet. I'm dreading the day! Thanks Amanda :)
