"She's got a smile that it seems to me
Reminds me of childhood memories
Where everything
Was as fresh as the bright blue sky
Now and then when I see her face
She takes me away to that special place
And if I stared too long
I'd probably break down and cry..."

It was an eventful weekend. Besides the yard work, which there are no pictures of because I was trying to keep up with my parents, we had a few other things happen...

Wiggle it, just a little bit...

Eh, the tissue's not working...

Moooooom.... Stop it.

One final picture. I love those teeth. They've served him well.

Whoops. I only shed one tear. In my laundry room where no one could see.

And here he is. He wouldn't let me take his picture earlier in the day. I had to catch him off guard.

And my oldest? I'm weeping a little differently for her.

She finished her first year of dance. The instructor told me she's hoping to see her signed up next year. I know she says that to all the girls, but it still means a lot.

There's something about her look. It's as if I can see her growing up before my very eyes. Very teary eyes.

And this one? In a few short weeks she'll be four. Though I knew this day would come... I just didn't think it would come so soon.

Yes, nap time at the recital. Both of them in fact.

Pardon me while I go dab my eyes.

Regular projecting will resume tomorrow. And boy, oh boy, do I have something good!

gross, gross, GROSS--i can't deal with teeth. specifically, teeth coming out of one's head. anyone's head. i have goosebumps now.

i had my own moment yesterday--albeit not as poignant--when bob, playing a video game he has not mastered, mentioned "this game sucks!" such a big-kid thing to say, spoken with a voice that still sounds so much like a muppet...

If it's any consolation, we sent our exhausted 7 year old up for a nap. I hear they always need their moms.

The kids are beautiful -- obviously a result of good parenting. :)

How awesome that you documented that tooth pull!

Oh, it's heartbreaking when you realize how big they have gotten!
