I was talking to my au pair last week about how I’m always the one behind the camera taking photos of everyone else. She came up with a good idea - she will take a photo of me and the children every Monday. It would be a fun way to see how all three of us change over the coming years as well as ensuring there are photos of me with my two girls.
So let’s begin!
(And by begin, I mean completely forget to do it on Monday so take the photo on Tuesday instead).
DATE :: Tuesday June 18, 2013
AGES :: Charlotte 3 years 2 months
Alexandra 8 months
WHAT :: Just got back home from a morning spent at Stepping Stones with Tessie
I hate this curtain-less portion of window that is in a competition with my 8 month old to wake me up as early as possible. But it sure does cast a pretty shadow on the wall at 5:30am.
Charlotte is new
My mother and I were discussing various people’s ages and commenting on how old everyone was getting. Charlotte who was clearly listening to every word piped up with:
I’m not old. I’m new.
I love you too
Me:: Hey, I have something to tell you. (Leans over and whispers) I love you very much.
Charlotte:: Oh. Can I have a present?
Normally I order all of Charlotte’s shoes on Zappos but today I wanted her foot properly measured. I did my best but could not talk her out of the shoes that light up when she walks. I put myself in her shoes (pun!) and realized I would probably want the outrageously sparkly ones too. What I completely forgot to account for was the fact that Winston goes bananas-crazy around flashing lights. Sorry Winston!
