When Mommy sent me this photo, I had to laugh.  It reminded me of an old commercial and the song went like this:

I'm Chiquita Banana, and I've come to say
Bananas have to ripen in a certain way.
And when they are flecked with brown and have a golden hue,
Bananas taste the best, and are the best for you.
You can put them in a salad. You can put them in a pie - aye.
Anyway you want to eat them it's impossible to beat them.
But bananas like the climate of the very, very tropical equator.
So you should never put bananas in the poderator.

I had forgotten this one...

I had meant to post this earlier and it slipped out from under me.  While I was going through the vacation photos I ran across it again.  This look.  This absolute all-knowing, all-disgusted look, all-of-my-patience-is-gone-with-you look.  If you take one more picture of me, Dad, I'll scream look.  Get used to it Daddy.  It usually starts when girls reach the age of twelve and become smarter than their parents.  Too bad for you, Sammy's is starting earlier.  Bwahahahahahaa!!

These eyes

Sometimes when she looks like this, I'm just taken aback how beautiful her face and eyes are.

Mommy supplied all the milk needed for little Olivia while Mommy was in Hawaii.  She got up in the middle of the night when everyone was sleeping happily in their beds and used her breast pump.  Every night!  In fact, Mommy has a new name:  Model Dairy.

New Orleans

Yes, that is a fairy princess dress accessorized with some Mardi Gras beads.  I like your style.

Taking the time

Nana and Papa are sucking in every minute they spend with these two Princesses.

Calling Vidal Sassoon!

Despite Nana's best efforts, Sammy prefers her hair au naturelle.  You know, combed with a sagebrush.

Smiles galore

Missy is smiling up a storm these days.  In fact, when I pulled out the big black box that I use to take pictures, I could have sworn I heard her say, "Vogue".....

Here, Nana, allow me to assist you....

Or in Sammy's phrasology, "Me do it".  You have to be careful of Me-Do-Its because Olivia could end up with not only the nipple in her mouth but the nipple ring and the top half of the bottle as well.  Sammy wants to make sure that her sister gets the full effect of 'full belly'.

Steady, now...

Sammy has a look of intense concentration.  Why?  Well, she's trying to put a toy into Camden's mouth and avoid his flaying arms and hands.  She did it!

Big day

Today is a big day for these two little ones!  Mommy and Daddy are taking a little trip and Nana and Papa are in charge for a week!  Good luck Nana and Papa.  Chances are you won't have time to read this blog until late next week...   ;-]

Do you know this child?

This Sumu wrestler before you is the littlest Princess, weighing in at 13 POUNDS 1 OUNCE.  See how well she holds her head up?

Sorry for the blurr.....

Olivia was taking a snooze in the swing when I took this so there is a little motion blur.  However, you can see how much her face is changing with her growth weight showing.  Her little cheekies are filling out!

I can reach it

It's ok Sammy, I have to stand on my tip toes too to reach those high shelves..........

A young Geezer

A geezer is a ticklish spot located directly in the center of the armpit and only works if you say, "Geezer, geezer, geezer!"

Here it is, right here...see?

A scab. And in the life of a two year old this is a BIG DEAL.  Look at the scab.  Right here.  It is an Owie of MAJOR PORPORTIONS.  Just ask.  She'll tell you.

The food pyramid

Sammy has been watching way to many Food Network shows.  This is what she cooked me the other day.  Milk.  Broccoli.  And Clips.  I guess I need more iron in my diet.

Time will tell....

Can you read what the bottom of her socks say?  Future Heiress.  Well....
After having formula for the very first time, and she did great, by the way, BUT!  A few hours afterwards, our Future Heiress embarrassed herself.  A lot.  Many times.

Have you wrestled an eel?

Sammy was here the other day while I was getting ready to attend a bridal shower.  I was fixing my hair while she played with my brushes, combs, and cement.  I decided to put her hair into a pony tail.  HA!  This child would have NONE of it.  Once I had her roped, tied, and dangling from the ceiling, I managed to get one side of her hair into a scrunchie.  I showed it to her.  Again, take it OUT!  I finally had to sedate her to get the other scrunchie in.  NOT.  Sorry, Mommy...just kidding.  Maybe.  In fact, as we were walking up to the  bathroom (top floor), my hair wet from the shower, she looked at me and said, "dirty hair Mimi".    What does she know?  So now she's a hair dresser?

Hi there

Mommy and Daddy took the girls to a riding stable a few miles from our camp.  Here Sammy got to touch and talk to the big horsies before she got a chance to ride.

What does he know? He only fly fishes.

Daddy was trying to let Sammy reel in another fish.  That got away.  Yeah.  That's it.

Fish Whisperer

You are learning well, Grasshopper.  Hold the fishing pole...feel the fishing pole...let you and the fishing pole become one....

Hold on tight

Sammy wanted to make sure that during our morning out fishing that her bagels and cream cheese were not used to entice Nemo into the boat.

Kissable lips

By now Sammy knows and understands the basics of good grooming including the daily (hourly?) usage of Chapstick and SPF15.

Monday, August 2, 2010

Take a number

This is Sammy's third year here and Olivia's first.  Get used to it girls, Daddy went through this for YEARS.

No more pictures

Sammy will let me or anyone else for that matter, know when she's had ENOUGH.  And she usually uses her Stop-In-The-Name-Of-Love hand gesture as well.  So at this point, I had to put the camera away and tickle her.
