Lily and Martha

Hello? Does anyone live here???

Man, I stink at posting lately. I take pictures but don't post about it. There are so many things that I have wanted to post about. What's the hold up you ask? I've got a baby in one arm and I refuse to spend an hour typing out a post one-handed.

Anna is now in bed and is likely to be in bed asleep until about 2 in the morning, so I have a few hours with which to use my two hands to type.

First, my magazine. It came in the mail on Thursday and I immediately took it outside and took many photos of it, intending to post right away about how I had finally received it. I suck.

I've looked through the magazine several times and Mom has looked through it and we've picked out several good recipes we'd like to try out soon.

Thank you thank you thank you!!! It's the perfect birthday gift!

Second, I would like to post about my 18 month old, Little Lily, the tyrant. Even though she throws tantrums like I've never seen out of any of my children before and screams at the top of her lungs for fun, she has her pluses. Check it out.

She doesn't look like she's having a good time but she could ride all day long. Things I love about this photo: the dimple in Lily's arm, her feet skimming the ground and her tiny little hands gripping the seat. Too cute.

She loves Anna.

Chocolate, it'll cure all your ails.

She likes tools. She's a problem-solver. This poses a few problems for her caregivers.

Yeah!! I'm so glad you got your magazine! I cannot wait to read through mine.

And we're together on the taking pictures but not posting thing! Oh, and on the baby in one arm thing, too. The time will come when our arms are empty most of the time again and posting will resume, and we'll probably miss being so needed. *sigh*

Lily is beautiful. I am glad that she likes Anna so much. Neither of my boys were much on tantrums, so I am absolutely no help there. Hopefully Andrew will be as compliant as his brothers, too.

So glad to see some posting again. I have great intentions of keeping it going...

I am glad you got a small break to post! :)

Baby is way more important job for your arms right now ;) But I do like hearing from you :)

Lily is so sweet :) I love how kids love their new babies :)

The tantrum stage is stinky, though. It didn't last long with my kids, luckily :)
