Well...these are my kiddos. I have decided to call them by their nicknames on this blog. Below is my little girl, MissyMiss. She is my first-born and I call her "little girlfriend." Don't you just love how her hair sticks out the vents on her helmet. :) She is trying to grow her hair down to her butt. Every time we go to the salon she tells the hairdresser "Just a trim". She is wise beyond her years. She was trying to tell me how her little brother got hurt and she started by saying "Well...apparently he fell off the bed." Ya gotta love it when little kids use big words.
This handsome guy is my baby, Bubby. We used to call him "Buddy", but once he started talking he called himself "Bubby", so that has stuck. He is your typical active and very curious 2-year-old. But, he is VERY affectionate and lovey. He will come over to me and say "Kiss Mama". He is sensitive, and I love it. When he is about to cry his little lower lip sticks out a bit and quivers...it is almost enough to get him out of a time-out...but not quite.
These 2 are quite the pair. They get along well, most of the time. There are 2 more things to note about these pictures:
1. Those are pine cones that they are holding. We recently moved into this house and just today discovered that pine cones are falling from the tree in the backyard. They were thrilled. "We have a pine corn tree!" (Yes, my missymiss calls pine cones "pine corns". We think it is so cute that we just can't correct her) The bad news is that the pine cones have a lot of sap on them! Both kids were very sticky when we went inside. Missymiss even got it in her hair. Even after a bath she still smells like a Christmas tree.
2. Do you notice that the kids are wearing helmets, yet don't have bikes? My kids are strange that way. They had gotten off their bikes and went to the backyard to play...but left their helmets on. They left them on the rest of the time we were outside. My neighbors must think we have issues.
See this picture here? Well...this is a shot of the very tall and mature trees in my backyard. When we moved into the house MissyMiss said "Wow...we will have lots of leaves to rake! It will be a huge pile!" She is thrilled about it. Me?....not so much.
