the following is a SHAMELESS bombardment of incredibly cute photos of my pearl because well. come onnnnnnn with those eyes! and she could not possibly look more like her dad's baby pictures in these. it's like my genes aren't even there. i guess i'm all right with it, for now.
as always, my sister is the genius behind the camera. but it's my raspberry-blowing that got P to smile. so.
we took these photos over 4th of july weekend but i'm just getting around to posting them. i think it's because i'm not a huge fan of the way we 3 look in them; i was annoyed with my hair, pearl had bright red eyes from getting soap in them (great mom day for me), and logan always tries to get me not to do the closed-mouth smile. and yet...
but gosh i love my family! logan has been sick for about 6 weeks or so (yes, it was a long depressing time) and just started turning normal again. i realized as soon as his personality started to return that hey! i really missed him! and also take out the trash, i've been doing it for weeks!
thanks reina for taking these and thanks van dyke farm for being beautiful as always.
we started feeding pearl solids the other day (i wasn't ready but i think she is). so far we've tried rice cereal, avocado, apple sauce, and broccoli. strangely enough, she hated the apple sauce! she wouldn't let me put a single spoonful into her mouth after the first taste. she's done the best with the rice cereal but i'm sure it's because it was the most bland and was mixed with breastmilk which is totally her jam. but mostly she likes trying to eat her bib.
i've never been more mad at myself than when i didn't secretly record logan's rant after watching the bachelorette last week. "what do you think is gonna happen?!" "i bet brooks shows up at the rose ceremony. that crying was for real!!" we've never watched the bachelor/ette together before, and one day i came home from work to see logan watching it, by himself, on the computer. after i had a good laugh he explained that he sorta knows brooks so he was interested in seeing how far he got. ooooookay, i'll give him that. and then we both got hooked. we really can't wait to watch it tomorrow. i don't even care.
i also haven't told him how many guys get hooked on the bachelorette, i just like watching him squirm i dunno.
we have some fun together, me and that guy.
and oh, hey, here's some real cute pictures of our girl if you'd like to see. my sister took these while she was babysitting for us the other day. she is amazing and a life saver and makes my life so much easier and better. and she takes great photos.
