Girls in their Christmas Dresses

The girls weren't in the best mood for pictures (this was just a little before bedtime) so I'll probably try this again but here they are in their Christmas dresses. Joy is wearing the same dress that Katie wore 3 years ago. Joy is 7 months old and Katie was 3 months old.

Crowns and Slippers

Katie loves the movie Cinderella. It is really her first full length movie. She asks to see it all the time. And when she isn't watching the movie she is walking around the house with her "crown" looking for her lost "slipper". Her crown is Joy's orange teething ring. Joy will just have to find something else to soothe her gums because a princess really shouldn't chew on her crown. Katie shows great poise as she balances this teething ring on her head and walks around and even tries to jump or skip. A princess must learn to do everything while wearing her crown.

Another funny is Josh told me that he heard Katie teaching Joy to talk the other day. Katie was saying "Joy - say MAMA! Say MAMA Joy!". We'll see how Katie's lessons go.

Bless you's

Katie sometimes makes her own names for things. She calls the Kleenex box a box of "Bless you's". I think that is so cute. It would be a good brand name too. Bless You Tissues. Katie has her own box of "Bless you's" in her room with two tissues and she practices sneezing into them.

New Blog Header

Hee! I made myself a new blog header. I'm not the best at picking fonts and such so I'm happy at how it turned out.

She finally rolled over!

Joy finally rolled over from her back to her tummy today. And now she is trying to figure out how to get the pacifier that is in front of her. Maybe crawling will be next?

Clapping and New Blue Background

I got a new blue background this week. I took some pictures of Joy and her new skill - clapping.

Cowgirl Joy

And here is Joy in the same hat:

I'm borrowing a cowgirl hat from the camera club for a photography contest. Here is Katie wearing the hat.

Having Fun

Today was an interesting day. Last night Josh got rid of the rotting pumpkins. I really hoped that Katie wouldn't notice. Unfortunately for me it was the very first thing she noticed. All day I heard "Oh no! Where'd pumpkins go!" "Pumpkins where are you?!?!?!" "Pumpkins GONE, OH NO!" etc.... on and on.

Then we went and voted. Each of the girls got "I voted" stickers. Joy ate hers. Actually Josh got it out of her mouth before she swallowed it but she was definately trying to eat her sticker. I'm not used to a baby that eats everything but baby food. Katie wasn't one to put things in her mouth because she was never without her pacifier. Joy isn't so much into the pacifier so we are in for some trouble in the eating things department.

Later in the day we had a little fun with a blonde wig and got the following silly pictures:

Notice her "I Voted Stickers" You know those ACORN workers, they'll let anyone vote.
And we also had fun with my new photography prop baby scale. Only I don't have a newborn to lay on it so I removed the newborn tray and put my chunky little Joy on it.
