I just wanted to share this. I think it is so cute. Gabby LOVES dogs and cats. When we're at the park and someone has a dog there, she can no longer play, but must waddle after the dog until she gets the courage to go pet it (with Mommy at her side, of course). This is video of her chasing the neighbor's cat. We know the cat, Auto is a VERY sweet cat, that doesn't care that she wants to lay on him, pet him kind of roughly and grab his fur. She LOVES this cat. But I love how she chases him with her hands out in the 'grabbing' motion, and squealing at him. It really sounds like she says, "Kitty" and "Come Here." It really does. Also, notice how in the beginning of the video, she has 2 pigtails, then at the end, only one....the story of my life.
Here's where I found the hair tie, after reviewing the video. Still rolled up, stuck to the tree.
Steven pulled out about 3 seeds, then decided it was too messy...
...while his sister rolled around in the dirt.
After lunch, I stripped her to take her inside, then she decided she was still hungry
Here is the sequence of pictures I took TRYING to get one of the kids smiling with Frank:
Steven, look at the camera!!
Gabby, put your hand down and look happy!
Gabby, put that down! Steven! Look at Mommy!
Oh, forget it. I give up.
Time to eat candy on the porch
And this is what happened when we turned our backs on Gabby. She laid down on Steven's tool belt and chewed her way through a lollipop wrapper.
Making our Leaf Press at the Depot
AETC planes. This is the division that Steve is in right now. The big white plane in the center of the formation (T-43) is the plane he does his training on. Steven calls all big, white planes "Daddy's Plane" because of this one. The two on either side of the T-43 are T-38s, the ones that take off and land about 150 yards from our house all day...every day...very loudly...ugh
Okay, this pictures needs to be explained. The F-22 was about to do it's demonstration. Steve was beyond excited. He was giddy. Then this beige-shirt kid slowly inched his way to standing RIGHT IN FRONT of Steve. So Steve just stood there, breathing down his neck. He was so irritated. It was kind of funny...so I took a picture.
Me and the kids in the shade. I tried to get Gabby to go to sleep. She was so tired and grumpy.
Finally, I laid the back of the stroller down and she fell asleep in it.
And Steven slept in the front.
