Lia has many nicknames for the people in her life, some dependent upon person, but more often than naught, dependent upon personality, time of day and general emotion that she is feeling. Weno has been her unisex nickname for anyone she meets (friend, family, foe) it was her catch-all. A few weeks ago she began calling Davy Whoa-we-a. She pronounced it clearly and distinctly every single time and it was what she called him every single day, multiple times a day. I thought it was just another unisex nickname rooted in nothingness.

But last week we were watching Frances (as in Frances and Bread and Jam) and I realized that Lia has been calling Davy Gloria! Gloria is Frances' little sister. I asked her why and she smiled and said simply, "It is because I am Frances." :-)

I took these of Kate and Davy over Easter... :)

I'm not sure WHAT Davy is trying to do...

Quick funny story:

Today on the way to the store I noticed that there were two guys in their mid-thirties in the big truck next to me at the stoplight. Well, I didn't actually notice them until I realized that they were madly waving and beaming at me. Waving like they were drowning. I was taken aback... they couldn't possibly be waving at me. I am four days sick, a mess, pimples abound, grumpy and fairly icky. Who were they waving at? I looked at the car on the other side of me but they were just staring ahead too. I glanced in my rearview mirror and saw the reason for the guys making complete idiots out of themselves.

My two babies were beaming their faces off as they wildly waved back at the men in the truck. The two guys in the truck were laughing as they waved and we drove away. I peered behind me at the kids and asked Lia, "Lia, why were you waving? Do you know those people"

Lia smiled sweetly at me as she said, "Nope. They just looked like nice people."

And here is Davy.

This is the way the car is meant to be rode (well, except for sitting ON the seat instead of in the compartment)- but namely, on your behind.

This is NOT how it is supposed to be rode. And he's eating. Its a death defying stunt in all aspects.

Put a ring on it

We just got back from my cousin Jesse's wedding and Lia came up to me in the computer room and said very seriously,

"Momma- I would like to get married."

ME: Oh really? Why is that?

LIA: I want a boy to kiss me and put a ring on it.

The last part I think was borrowed from Beyonce's song- but I couldn't help but laugh. And today all of her babies are ''kissing'' and I found a sticker haphazardly wrapped around her baby's fingers...

Hopefully this obsession doesn't last too long- don't know how I feel about my two year old asking to be married. But at least she wants to do it the right way- put a ring on it!

I was just testing light and I noticed the three splotches of yellow. I like this picture for some reason. :)

Easter cookies

Marissa and her two kids (Finn and Moe) invited us over before Easter to make some Easter cookies (yes, I realize that I haven't blogged in centuries...) and I got a couple shots of them rolling out the cookie dough. There's something so old fashioned and wonderful about baking and people's hands... it warms my heart and makes me feel calmer.
