Just Pictures

Daphanie WaLkiNG!

Daphanie began walking a couple weeks ago, but lately has perfected it! Lillyann began walking at 8.5-9 months old so couple months before Daphanie did. Here is the video of Lilly walking (click on the word "Here" to see Lillyann). Now here is Miss Daphanie!

I know its late but..

It's a new year. This is the month that we make goals and tell ourselves how much we want to change and make things better. I know there are plenty of things that I would like to make better for myself and my family.
I want to become a better Mother to my children. I need to learn how to be more patient. Some times I catch myself with a loud voice, and wishing I could take it back. There is really no need to raise my voice she isn't going to hear me or understand me any better with it louder. I need to ask her why, and let her know in a way she will understand. They are young and need to be taught what is right.
I also would like to become a better homemaker. I stay home with my children, and I love it most days. I need to keep to a routine and get things done. I think I was actually better at this when I had obligations outside the home, but that was also one child ago. I need to get back to meal planning. Knowing what your going to cook for lunches and suppers is great. I know plenty of times when it was 4:00pm and I had no idea what I was going to cook and I scramble to figure out if I have everything to make a meal. No more, I will have it planned out, but also have it flexible. I think that will also make me a better wife, what man doesn't like to have supper ready and waiting after working all day!
So I thought if I put some of my resolutions out there for everyone to see that I would work on them harder and accomplish them. I am hoping for a change in 2010.

The Adventures of Pooh

For some reason I started to take pictures of Lillyann's toys, dolls or stuff animals. Well usually when I am taking these photos just the way the toys are left is cute and funny! Well I thought I would share with you the adventures of Pooh. He is usually the toy that I take pictures of, he always seems posed and is just asking for a snap shot!

Lets Be Real

Most days our house isn't as tidy as I would like it to be. I use to pick up the toys all the time, I liked to keep the floor picked up so I wasn't stepping on anything and it didn't look like a big mess all the time. But these days with two kids there is no way to keep up. So this is a snap shot of the girls in the normal untidy house.Well this is actually really good, you can't see where I was sitting, but I think there was about ten or thirteen books all over the floor, with Daphanie's puffs also all over the floor!

When I pick up I like to have all the toys organized. Like all the Mr. Potato Head stuff together, all the puzzle pieces in the right place, and all the coins in the singing piggie bank. I mean why would they want to play with it the next time if not everything was together. I think that is why picking up toys is such a pain. You have to get all the pieces in the right spot! I think it would help if we had one of these
Then I could label all the tubs and wouldn't have to get all the puzzle pieces on the puzzle just put them in the bin and next time Lilly could put it back together. This would also be nice to put paper and colors in one tub to, Then Lilly wouldn't be crawling up on the computer desk to get a piece out of the printer!

So now we, well mostly me pick up the toys before lunch, before supper and then before bed time. The house is usually always picked up before I go to bed. Some nights I leave the mess for morning. They are just going to make a mess in the morning anyway, right?
