Once again the House of the Mama is hit with the plague. Because I am putting my energies into nursing and nursing invalids I have no time for blogging. But here are some pix...
Birdie made her Daddy a cake. Can you tell that we have been checking out castle cakes? The yellow doobers around the edge are Halls "Fruit Breezers." They were pretty good. LaLa is going to eat one. Just one, because I took the other five slobbery lozenges away.
LaLa has a huge ear infection. The infection is huge, her ear is normal size. She is currently taking a Phenergan and Codeine nap. This could take a while... I want a nap like that.
Here is Birdie with Pearl.... please note the very cute Hilfiger jeans. You will never see those on her in real life. All three of my girls have darling pictures of them in the cutest wee pairs of what my Granny called "Levi's." She called them that just like my Dad calls all soft drinks "Coke." In his case it's an Oklahoma thing, in her case I think it was an old school rancher thing.
When she was a baby I used to put poor Birdie in Levi's because I liked to play dress-up dolly with her. The dress-up thing was too bad because I would do things like stuff her fabulously chubby body into stiff, unstretchy zip up pants. Ughk! and the SHOES. Always with the shoes. But it was also ok, because I would be changing her out of 'em in a few hours at the longest. With LaLa I put a pair on her at three months and took a picture then never put them on her again.... she looked exactly like a sausage in a casing. This particular pair of Levi's I thought might be different. They seemed to be cut more generously, and they are roomier only... so stiff. I see her sweet little tummy pressed up against the waist band and it constricts my breathing. Does any one want a pair of 3-6 month Tommy Hilfiger baby jeans? They will work great for boys or girls... speak now or forever hold yer water 'cause the MS folks are coming by on Wednesday.
But you can't have the hat! The hat is a knitted apple hat made by her Auntie R so get yer grubby paws off!
