etc...

A few randoms the past few weeks:

Today it was chilly enough to actually wear jackets to the park. Imagine that. I couldn't resist the urge to put a hat and gloves on Leah. She actually kept them on for the entire walk over. But, I have a sad, sad confession to make. That's actually my hat she's wearing. No, she doesn't have an abnormally large head. I have an unusually small one. I got the hat on clearance in the baby section at Old Navy a few years ago - it's a size 2T. Even more sad is that I just got her a hat for Christmas - size 18-24 months - and it fits me. I think I have a complex. Leah has been spending a lot of time here lately...the time out chair.

Every Wednesday morning, you can find Leah and Jack here. They're watching the garbage man, affectionately referred to as "man! man!" Really, they get so excited.

And here is Leah's hair in two full french braids. Yay!

You have got to be kidding me! How does she have so much and such thick hair already?! Don't worry, I won't show Capri. But seriously, I am amazed that you can get her to sit still to do such a fabulous job! :D

I am so amazed that all these other little girls have enough hair for braids--and they would sit still long enough for their moms to DO a braid. I can't get lucy to sit still enough for a straight fountain on top of her head. They are so cute on her and I love the Man Man!!

I'm so glad the french braid tradition lives on. I still remember random strangers stopping me and asking how I braided your hair - a flight attendant even made me undo it and show her how!
