Forever ago, but never documented... photo/frame project on dining wall... And a better view of the Ikea curtains.... not exactly a formal dining. But it still serves its purpose.... as the room with a table that never gets used. Wouldn't trade it though .... space for kids to run and ride bikes on the tile when it's a hundred and something degrees of death outside... a must. Always a few changes in this room, can't seem to decide... but the three pictures of Sophia at the beach, compliments of Aunt Marie are a recent addition.
You know how it is when they're little... you just want to make sure each and every possible expression gets captured. Sometimes the sour ones are the cutest.Check out those thighs... Still no real decor in the toy room, but we use it! Not as much as I wish we did of course, but when they're both in there playing together... well there are just some things that the camera cannot resist. ....
and it doesn't hurt that the toys are colorful and the walls are green-- that kind of makes me want to grab the camera too- but mostly it's these darling girls and their sweet friendship. :)
Sophia really does make me so proud as a big sister. This is on a night where she skipped her nap and by this evening, was so beyond ill-behaved and so much closer to possessed it scared me. The fits and lack of all rationale were out of this world. So right now I'll force myself to think of how she is with Mila. It's pretty remarkable. She is always in the mood to make her sister smile. Pretty much ALWAYS responds when I ask her to make her laugh by dancing or singing or tickling or making silly faces... She bring her toys, checks on her and entertains her until I can get her out of bed, and stretches as far as she can out of her carseast to try to offer her a snack. Almost-three-year-olds can really try you-- but big sisters rock.
