The fact that Andy's Frozen Custard is less than 1 minute from our house, definitely increases our frequency of eating custard! The girls LOVE it and beg to sit under this particular tree when they eat their custard. Ah sweet traditions!
Stella has a new love of sitting on furniture - it must make her feel like a "big girl". The problem, however, lies in the fact that she needs a chaperon while she is on furniture because she is likely to catapult herself off at any moment!
The girls also had a FABULOUS time going to a princess birthday party this summer. They got to wear their princess dresses and shoes, eat cake, wear crowns, and otherwise be treated by royalty. Who won't like that!
Stella has discovered pulling up and can't help herself. She's pulling up on furniture, people, pets, and even bathtubs. However, she gets a big talking to about pulling up in the bath. She has already once up ended herself and spent a few seconds unexpectedly submerged!!! She did not like it - but hasn't learned her lesson yet either!
This is what it looks like when we all get loaded in the car to go somewhere. This day we were going swimming. The girls were so excited - they LOVE swimming and insist on having floaties (the round donut ones) to splash around in. Loading them in the car is quite the undertaking, and I usually get pretty steamed up by the time everyone is buckled. The girls have taken to the habit of asking me, "Mommy, are you happy?" when they sense I'm about to blow. Which is then quickly followed by, "Do you need a hug and kiss...?" Ah sweet children...you know me a little too well!!!
The girls have started role-playing with their babies a bit more. The was one particularly cute moment where they were all dining together at the kiddie table. So sweet. And of course, ladies of high fashion always feed their babies while wearing their swimsuits...didn't you know?
Here the girls are wearing dresses sent by their Auntie Hayley. They love these dresses and wear them ASAP when they come out of the laundry. I had to make a rule that they could only be worn to church or parties since they were being worn 24/7 and Addie even wanted to make mud pies in them...
