Oops, never got around to posting yesterday!  But I did remember to take some pictures.

Just a nice smile

I love this picture of Annie.  These days it’s really hard to take a picture of her – she’s a moving target AND she likes to really ham it up for the camera, as you can see in the following picture.

Hamming it up

As you can see, the band-aid is still there.  It should be gross soon.

I was playing around with my camera a little with Charlotte’s picture.  Not really the functions of it, since I still have no idea how to do anything with it, but with the angle of the camera.  So this shot is the best picture I have, and it’s not very good!

But I did manage to get one of her trying to reach for the camera!

Charlotte is either teething, or having a growth spurt, or a developmental leap because she’s generally pretty miserable the past couple days.  If I’m in the room she’s totally unhappy if I’m not the one holding her, and while I’m thrilled that my baby likes me so much, I would also like to clean m bathrooms.  Oh well, I’d rather have dirty bathrooms than sad children.

All is well otherwise.  We just went through about a two month phase with Annie being very defiant, very TWO.  I didn’t even dare go many places in public with her, because it has been so hard to extract her from whatever we were doing.  Twice, trying to leave the Sciencenter she had the tantrum to end all tantrums.  So, I have been sucking it up, and staying home most of the time really working with her on sharing, and being kind, you know the sort of things you really wish were just totally built in and you didn’t have to go through years of reinforcing behavior to get.  I’ve put several calls into my mother, asking her if I’m doing the right thing – which I’m sure surprises her, seeing as I know it all.  😛
