Now that CP's back to work, the girls and I have gotten out for walks a couple of times. Here, N takes the stroller. Yesterday, though, she opted to walk the whole quarter mile to the playground. These days, there's no end to how she surprises me with her grown-up-ness.

Compared with the July heat wave, August has felt almost fall-ish. To keep H from getting chilly on our final appointment with the midwife, I dug out the rainbow leggings that N had worn. They were a bit tight around her thighs. She weighed 10 lb 11 oz (going on three pounds' gain in five weeks).

N enthusiastically shares one of her passions--books--with H. N's current read-aloud is Little House on the Prairie. She enlisted my help to find all the books in the series that we have on our young adult fiction shelf and lodge them on the shelf in her own room, so that she can visually anticipate reading them all.


  1. absolutely cute as a button! Thanks for the view into your days.

  2. Oh, the love in N's eyes! Hard to blame her with that cutie chunk-bear of a sister. . .Good job, M!

  3. yippee, chubby, sisterly times. thanks for the pics and peeks.

  4. If I wore totally bodacious leggings like that, I hope I could be as cool about it- so chill.
