The Girl "Right of Passage"

{{{{{sigh}}}}}. I knew it was bound to happen someday. I just didn't think at 2 years old Lili would inflict this on herself......alllll by herself. In the bathroom. Yes. Today Liliana gave herself a haircut. You know. Just a little off the top. She told me she was going to wash her hands. I was so proud of her. She is so independant. THEN.....I realized what she had done. I saw a little hair on the floor and i wasn't so sad. Then i looked in the trash and there it was. (isn't that sweet. she tried to clean it up!) A pile of curls. She's lucky she is a curly top cuz you really can't tell. But she did quite a number on her hair. It is VERY short on top! Dang! And it was almost long enough for two little "Cindy Lu Who" ponytails!!!! She is very satisfied with herself and her cutting abilities. I have to give her credit i suppose. No blood. And those scissors are pretty sharp. I'm kidding people. RELAX!!!!!
Note to self.....scissors belong up high.....right????? Posted by Picasa

Look what I did!!!

Finally, after having several different paint color samples on the kitchen walls, i settled on Red! Here are some pics of the kitchen. I finally finished painting today! It looks so pretty and i am so happy with the way it turned out! It took LOTS of coats but the hard work paid off! I love it! is one of the worst colors to paint. If you do it....use a gray primer first! It will make your life so much happier!
What do you think?

Frankie and Cruz

I was so happy to capture these moments of Frankie and Cruz playing. They have the most interesting dynamic between them. They can be the worst of enemies....bickering, shouting, fussing with eachother.......down right mean and i can't stand it! (truthfully) BUT, on the other hand........they are the best playmates! I have caught them playing so sweetly with "My Pretty Ponies" or with the beanie babies, making up all kinds of scenarios. It is so cute and i truly cherish those times! This night they were playing with play doh right before bedtime. I was a little cranky and telling them over and over to "PUT IT AWAY!" Which they didn't. But i realized they were laughing so hard! In MY fussiness, i didn't hear the laughter. But then i stopped to look at them and listen they were being soooo funny! And litterally cracking eachother up! These are the times i hope they remember. These are the times that i hope I remember...........ALWAYS!  Posted by Picasa
