This is a real conversation between Hollyn and me. It happened on Tuesday. Let me set the scene for you. Hollyn is a happy camper playing on the floor with her toys. I walk up and sit down beside her.
Me: Hollyn, I love you. I do wish you would sleep more at night. But, I still totally love you.
Hollyn: Looks up at me and makes eye contact. She sticks out her tongue and makes an extremely loud farting noise. Then resumes playing.

My friend Kimberly has encouraged her blog readers to take a picture a day in 2009. I don't have it together like she does, so I am going to aim for at least one a week. I will not be posting all of them. But this was our week in pics.
Ava came from Ft. Worth to play. This was a sweet moment.

I can no longer do dishes while Hollyn is "out."

So, I put Hollyn "up" to finish the dishes. She got mad and went crazy in the Jump-a-Roo, which resulted in attacking herself with the curtains.

Hahahaha!!! That is hilarious!!!

We too have issues with climbing on the dishwasher when it's open. When he sees it open, he comes a running!

I am cracking up! What a toooooot!

Jana said...

Oh Hollyn, what a crazy girl. I like the picture-a-day idea!

Kimberly said...

Girl--- I've got to have a play date with your little girl. I think she could keep me and Creighton entertained.

And you don't have to have it together to do the picture a day-- I don't! And what in the world will I do with two??? In fact, I'm more than a week behind now and one day soon, I'll sit down and get each picture for each day all in place. Give it a try! You'll be so happy with the finished product!

Kimberly said...

Sounds great- let's all get together- pick a date!

When I look through my pictures, I click on properties button or just line the mouse up on the picture and the date it was taken shows up. I'll come show you if you want!
