Fire Fighter Tag

How do you end up with two girls who look like this

on a Wednesday evening?
Send them out to do this
in a wind/rain storm.

*I didn't actually send them to do this, it was one of those 'we came up with it while mom was putting the baby to bed and we should have been getting our jamies on'.

Gid 4 months

15 lbs. 11 oz.
27.5 inches

loves rice cereal...
all 5 tablespoons he's eaten this week.
Starting to figure out this whole finger/hand thing
found his feet. They're pretty cool.
No rolling yet, and that is fine with me.

She's Trickly

Scene : Master bedroom, a toddler age girl sits upon the toilet in the master bath while her mother puts an infant to bed.

Mother(in a whisper): Just a minute, I'm putting Gid in bed.
Lilly (in a loud breathy voice): Okay.... (giggling and talking to herself in a real whisper now) She won't be able to find me now hehehehehe...
Mother walks into bathroom and finds Lilly with her eyes covered, still giggling. She decides to play along.
Mother: Oh no! Where did she go?
Lilly (bursting with laughter uncovers her eyes): I'm right here Mom!! hehehehe. I tricked you.
I'm a pretty trickly big sister.

Please no one ever explain potty humor to her... she comes by it naturally and unknowingly... if she was aware, there would be no end. :)
