Penelope & I



AK finally took a picture of me today, mostly because my oldest and dearest friend Lorian's mom Deni keeps asking for one, and I guess I always am behind the camera capturing my DH and kids! So here I am, this afternoon, with a sleepy Penelope in my arms. I know I need to get my brows done and my hair dyed pronto (as Holden pointed out with the - "oh Mom, Penelope's hair is dark like your hair is on top!" comment a few weeks ago). Oh and I was so excited to put her in this outfit today, since it was quite warm. It's the most "dress-like" outfit so far. Owen was excited this morning too, he thought it was such a great "ballerina" outfit. And she got to wear the cute bow Katie commissioned especially for me, I mean Penelope! (Orange and pink, my favorite!). Also, you may be able to see the darling fairy blanket Grammy MarySue sent, she has sent soooo many beautiful hand-crocheted blankets, and this might be my favorite. She sent it to match the cute fairy bedding. Thank you Grammy! We love all of the blankets and burp pads (she is quite the little spitter-upper so we use all of them up, amazingly!). And that little hand is Owen's - the boys are getting more used to her crying and are always trying to console her in different ways. Owen is awesome at gently (and sometimes not so gently) bouncing the bouncer, which she loves!
