|Vera has finally discovered the joy of playing outside. It helps that it has been in the 80s this past week and that she has a dog to chase her around the yard.|
2016 week thirty-three
|"Why did you run to grab the camera instead of helping me out of here?"|
|On Wednesday we drove down with Matt's Mom to West, Texas (that's the name of the city not the general direction) to visit Matt's Grandma Dot.|
|V was the best during the visit. She was kind to Grandma Dot and was calm and polite. I was so proud of her. It can be hard to visit grandparents when there are no toys, you don't know them, and you're three.|
|After our visit we drove a little further south to Waco to visit Magnolia Market.|
|V had a lot more fun than she is pretending in this photo.|
|And this photo. She had a permanent grump face during the more fun part of our trip. She used up all her cheerfulness for Grandma.|
|Both of my children were spot on in this photo. Theo, the back of your head is ridiculous.|
|She started to perk up in the fairy house teepee.|
|"Mama, you can't come in here or I can't see the fairies. They wont come out around grown ups."|
|Hot chocolate snack time with Vera.|
|Beautiful little thing on a rainy walk.|
"Wait Papa, I gotta go dance it out."
I gave Vera a hug and she said, "Look we're stuck together like blocks! We're Lincoln Logs!"
"NO SIR!" (still shouting this at Theodore all the time.)
Every night after I put the children to bed I hear Vera sing "Twinkle Twinkle" to Theodore. I almost cry every time. Unless it's been a difficult bedtime and I'm desensitized to their cuteness.
