"Look Daddy"

See my fat little feet? Well, I learned to do something else with them today that makes me feel clever!
Yes - she is pulling herself up to standing. I find it a sheer marvel that the chubby curve of those feet have learned how to flatten onto the floor. And nothing is safe. Not one thing. The open dishwasher is at a perfect height for this new trick and tonight I found her busily inspecting the contents of the cutlery basket, one sharp knife at a time. I think my hair became a few shades greyer today.

And while we are on the subject of new sweet things, she has also begun to do her own version of 'round and round the garden' on herself. It is delicious, and very funny because she gets lost when it comes to the "one step two step" bit and just goes round and round and round all while chanting a little warbling sound that is really just her tongue going from side to side.

Her second upper tooth must be threatening, as her cheeks have been fiery today, she has refused all food on a spoon, dribbles like a waterfall and is grinding her gums together. This is making for interesting breastfeeding. The nerves in my corresponding leg tingle all the way down to my toes when she does this and you don't even want to hear about the bite marks that I bear after she's done feeding. I told you I was getting more grey hair.

The other girls are doing well - I kissed Maddy's sticky cheeks tonight at lights out time; she seemed to have swum in her icecream cone, it is even in her hair. She smells divine - all milky caramel. I should have bathed them after dinner. Kenzie went off to sleep yawning widely - snuggled in on her dad's pillow (they are enjoying this vacation from their own bedroom) and I am sitting in front of the fire editing the shots from the photo shoot I did this afternoon. Here are a couple of my favourites - bearing my client's privacy in mind.

That nekked belly in the pink tutu is scrumptious! :)

All your last photos make me tear up with their poignancy. Lives shared. Love and honor. Escorting one another through this sometimes difficult but always amazing thing we call life.
I miss my grandparents now.

I could just eat that precious baby up! And I too love the photos from your photo shoot. I hope that's me and my man one day.
