August 9 and 10

August 9
He looks less and less babyish every day. :(
"Smile for a picture," I say, and this is what she gives me.

August 10
I love these guys more than they'll ever know.

Mommy made a hat for you, Clark!

Gnome sighting! Of course, she's admiring the flowers.

Psychedelic Elise.

August 5 and 6

August 5
Clark hanging out at the mall.
Elliot and Elise rolling pennies into a funnel/well thingy that makes the pennies roll round and round and round.
August 6

Clark playing on Elise's bed.
Elise riding her "motorcycle." Notice: 1) Elise has put part of a toy on her head, pretending that it's a helmet, and 2) she has put my keys into a screw hole, pretending that it's the ignition.

August 3 and 4

August 3
Honey, I shrunk the baby.
Welcome back, "funny face."
August 4

Welcome back, "sad face."
Elise strung this necklace with beads and a piece of yarn. She was very happy that she got to wear it when she was done. (She's eating pizza in this picture-- I know it's kind of blurry and hard to see what's in her hand.)

August 1 and 2

August 1

Poor baby!

More Elise art! Dried beans glued onto construction paper with glitter glue. Elise is very proud of this piece, especially since she spelled her name out for me so I could write it down. I'm impressed that she already knows how to spell her own name!

August 2

He looks so peaceful when he sleeps.
After harassing me for weeks about getting a toy guitar, I finally got her one. Good thing toy guitars don't require toy guitar lessons.

July 30 and 31

July 30

Clark is all smiles.
Elise wanted her toes in the picture. 
July 31
Thinking... thinking...
Elise always wants to step on the scale at the grocery store. She weighs 28 lbs, in case you were wondering.

July 27 and 28: Sweet Dreams

July 27
Clark in jammies.

Elise in jammies. And shoes.

July 28

This is what Clark looks like when he falls asleep in the car. He still suckles in his sleep.

Too cool for a nap? Not yet.

Elise wanted her picture taken with the rainbow.

Mommy kiss. Although Clark has a "do I know you?" kind of look on his face.

My good girl, brushing her teeth.

July 23 and 24

July 23
Elise singing "Buns, buns, buns!" while (gently) smacking Clark's naked bottom.

Greetings, earthlings! Do not be alarmed. We are only here to play in your pine straw.

Peek a boo, Mr. Sunshine!
My little bookworm.

July 17

Messy eater!
Hey, Mom! Do you like see-food?

July 18

Elise squeezing the stuffing out of Clark. By the way, that plush Batman-themed bowling pin is one of Clark's favorite toys.

This is Elise's trying-not-to-laugh face.
