Inspired, we immediately took a few pictures including me. Maybe these help to explain why I'm not in more shots. :)
No, this is not a hold-out picture. I am making crazy moves with my hands to try to get Elynor to look up. And we're not simply smiling, but shocked at the crazy sounds Grandma Sue & Granpda Lyle are making to keep her attention. NOTE: Bad hair and unmatching hat (though very cute, thanks Auntie Katie) are due to the Mother's Day monsoon.
My budding (and very advanced) artist made me a special Mother's Day card. She's so thoughtful that on the back she wrote a "special thank-you to daddy for helping her with the card...".
After the babe goes to bed, I enjoy my new fave pastime - making baby food (then cleaning it all up so the house is ready for the next showing - ahhhhh!!!!). Elynor can sure put down the food, so it's quite the challenge to keep up with her. A special prize will be rewarded to the first person to guess what flavor this batch is. Here's a hint: it's not rice pudding.
