Mommy Post: An Ode to Pemberly

My online friend, Mary Mary, has a kick ass blog about her awesome kids, beautiful home (Pemberly) and her life with Hubby. One of the highlights (for me) is her ongoing attempt to get all of her kids to look at the camera and smile ALL AT THE SAME TIME. And now that I have more than one child, let me just say that I feel her pain.

Chloe: "Can you believe this kid?"

Amber: "Waaaa"

Chloe: "Mommy, you may want to actually look thru the camera. Don't guess."

Amber: "Gag. I'm sick of having my picture taken."

Amber: "Fine. I'll just go to sleep."

Chloe: "Fine. I can watch Dora out of the corner of my eye."

Whew. I'll try again at some point... probably endlessly over the next 18 years or so.

Amber Post: An Update from "The Littlest One"

That's what Mommy says: "You're the littlest one we have!" That may be true, but I'm working on also being the most demanding one. Ha ha.

I'm in for some fierce competition on that front, though, from this one. Mommy says she is my Big Sister. She is very sweet to me and likes to touch my feet and give me hugs... but she's a little unrealistic in her expectations regarding my ability to play with her at my young age.

I'm working on it, though. Daddy and I do a lot of exercises together and he and Mommy are both helping me to get in my tummy time...

...I don't always like it.

I'm also trying to figure out what toys are. The other day, I kept reaching out and grabbing this, but Mommy had to remind herself that my flailing little hands grab all kinds of things if they are close enough.

Whoops. I'm starting to fuss again. My typist needs to pick me up. And I mean NOW. Later.
