The Wise Sayings of La Luce...

We were sitting around the livingroom the other day and BR was happy one minute, then crying the next. L. tried to soothe him: "It's, okay, Baby Brother, it's okay. It was just a dream."

This morning I asked L. to get the newspaper from the doormat. She obediently opened the front door and stepped out to pick it up. A., seizing the opportunity to torment her, rushed over and slammed the door shut. I waited for L. to let herself back in, but when she didn't, I came over and opened the door. She was standing there, holding the paper, all teary-eyed and pathetic-looking. She turned to A. and shouted: "No, Ah-mah-ree! You would miss me!"

Where did all the curls go

mom gave me a new haircut yesterday. she was so proud of the result that she interrupted my glue-sniffing session for a photo shoot. i mean, sunblock-sniffing session.

jolly jellies

color-coordinating her hair accessories with her Seattle aquarium shirt from Gaga. what good fashion sense!

I'm not a "grumpy old man", p-roc's mom!

so happy!

hey, umm... excuse me. please watch what you're doing. please.

perhaps you were wondering: what was BR up to with all this wed-ing and birthday party-ing going on... well, never fear, his big sisters were quite near. quite, quite near.

It's my party

caution: mad birthday girl driver!!!

aunt mer and j's cousins ivy & zoe were with us at the beach amusement park. afterwards, we went to the sand to fly L's new kite (and bothered countless sunbathers when one kite kept crashing to the ground, oops).

Lost and Forlorn

We went to a friend's wedding over the weekend and A., having walked 7 steps away from our table, became disoriented.

Then she saw us again and the world was once again a happy place!

3 months old


L. spent her 'naptime' yesterday being creative with books and stuffed animals. She called her creation: "Housebooks".

such a proud Big Sister

L. loves Baby Brother. She even helped bathe him the other day. Scrubbed his tummy and his toes with a washcloth.
Then, when my back was turned, she also scrubbed his eyes and mouth. Ahh, sisterly love...

Rock on, BR

County Fair

A. and Aunt Mer

L. and Uly

This is L. and our neighbor Ulysses on a wild adventure. She loved this ride, but her favorite is the carousel (pronounced "cal-er-self", as in: "L. loves to calherself").

ps: BR was there of course, but didn't really enjoy it. Too noisy and crowded for him, I think.

L. went to see the Rock n'Roll Marathon with her dad on Sunday. Later in the day she decided to run her own "marafon" with a number pinned on her shirt and everything.

A. decided to rip off a piece of her number to snack on.

L., A. and dad's cousin Kyle all had a difficult time remembering to stay on the path.

Say Cheese


Here's what Baby R. is up to these days (insert appropriate soundtrack). A. imitated his noises the other day and L. corrected her: "it's not gagaga, it's gagagoo!"

"Here, I'll help you, Baby Sister"


A loves to dance!
