Mother's Day Part 2

For some reason it never occurs to me to get appropriate pictures on certain days. It should be a no brainer to get a picture of the mother with her children on Mother's Day. Instead, I'm posting some pics of the girls, of the backsides of a couple of my friends, and video clip of Ivy. With Steve.

Sigh. Oh Well.

For the grandmas I had Sophie paint on some blank cards, then tucked this little picture inside:

It's funny to me how Ivy's upper lip disappears when she smiles.

On Saturday a few of us girls went to downtown Pleasanton for lunch and some shopping. Sophie stayed home with Steve, and I took Ivy. (I would have left her, too, if she wasn't tethered to me. She's a nursing maniac.) There was a breast cancer awareness walk the same day, so we saw some interesting signs. Like this one.

I may get in trouble for posting this, but I really shouldn't. I'm sure you'd rather see their cute backsides than mine.

Sunday morning I came downstairs to a yummy breakfast made by Steve, a card that Sophie and Ivy "signed", a note from Steve that also made me tear up, and a pretty rose in a bud vase. That (plus shopping childless for four hours) is all a mom wants. Really.

I dug out this little red dress from some outfits Sophie got when she was born. By the time I received this one, she'd already out grown it. Luckily it was a gorgeous day and it fit Ivy perfectly.

It's a halter, if you can't tell, and ties at the back of the neck. Sassy little thing. :)

Ivy's also discovered her toes. We tried to get it on film, but . . . you know how that goes.

Yes, I realize she's not in the most modest of positions, but her legs are so dang cute. And she's a baby. It doesn't count yet. :)

I honestly can't wait to see you guys up here! Ivy is getting so dang cute... and I really want Carter to meet his cousins :) Your comment about her legs being cute, if you multiply hers by 10, you might get a glimpse of what Carters are like. I can't even fit my fingers around his anymore! I'm not sure I ever could :)

No brainer... LOL, I feel horrible... I haven't been in a picture with my two girls since last August!! So bad!! But Its hard to be in the picture when I'm the only one in the family who holds the camera.

Very cute dress on Ivy!! Annelie was the smaller of my girls, and so she not only fit into all of the baby clothes that I loved from when Gracie was small, but she was able to wear them longer. Hurray!

That dress. So cute. I love the video. She's so funny.

I made mother's day breakfast....ahh someday. I think I am going to write a list, this is what I want for mother's day. Our day out was so much fun, and JD did all the laundry, folded and put away (like 5 loads), then he stayed up late Saturday night and cleaned the house (vacuumed and everything).

So...that's what I look like from behind? Nice...heh heh
