The face of an angel?

See how adorable, beautiful, sweet and happy she looks? I remind myself, and her too for that matter, every night that she is lucky she's so damn cute. I tell her she's lucky she's not one of those ugly kids because I could never be so forgiving of her behavior if she didn't look the way she did.
How can a child with a face like that have such a shrill, piercing scream? She screams in such a manner that it actually makes my skin crawl. She screams when she's mad, when she's frustrated, when she's hungry, when she's tired, and just about any other time of day she feels the need. She also bites, pushes and pinches her baby sister on a regular basis.
She is hard headed (not unlike her mother). She knows what she wants, when she wants it, how she wants it and god damn you better get it to her pronto. She is every bit a two year old and then some. My mantra these days is "it's just a phase, it's just a phase. And at least she's really cute."

The Littlest One

You know that sideways snarling look a dog will give you if you get too close to it while it's eating? Well that's kind of the look E was giving me here. Like she would bite my hand right off if I got too close to her mashed potatoes. I bathed her tonight after she ate these and yet at bedtime her forhead still had the distinct smell of garlic.

I just think this is cute. She's looking over at Z and laughing at her oh so amusing big sis.

Her Highness

Do you think it's normal for a two year old to eat, I mean,to demand, a three course meal for breakfast? Here she has a bagel, cut up for her majesty, scrambled eggs and cheerios. She ate about 1/3 of each thing. She is the boss of me, I won't deny it.

Apparently I wasn't the only one hung over this morning

Doesn't L look like she tossed back a few too many Cosmos last night?

The Weekend

We went to our friend's wedding on Saturday. Hubby was in the wedding party and I had a reading to do for the ceremony. Surprisingly I wasn't really very nervous. A few months ago when the bride- to- be first asked me if I would do a reading at the wedding I got that familiar panicky insecure feeling that I had in the sixth grade when I had to do an oral report. I guess I really am a grown up now. It didn't even phase me to stand up in front of the crowd.

Anywho, the wedding was great. We had a lot of fun and it was hard to go home at the end of the night. I know how very very lucky I am to have my three beautiful baby girls but sometimes it's so hard to leave the party and come back to reality.
Notice in the pics you can tell in the bottom one, of me and the bride, that I'm still completely sober. In the one with Hubby, a few hours have past, and I have a big dopey smile on my face that clearly states "Hey, I'm buzzed!"

Here's what is on my agenda for today

It's 9:15am and Ella is STILL asleep! NO, she did not sleep through the night but she is still asleep from the night, does that make any sense? L and Z also both slept until past 7:30! If it weren't for the worlds loudest garbage truck picking up our trash at 7 am I would have slept that late too. I just can't win.
Anywho, today we are heading down to see Hubby for a lunch time picnic at the playground. After that I will promptly drop off all three of my little lovely princesses at MIL's house and I will go off gallivanting on my own. I have a list of things I SHOULD do but we'll see if I use my time wisely and get anything done at all. I SHOULD go the the mall and buy some shoes for a wedding I'm going to this weekend, and maybe get an outfit for the rehearsal dinner and get a mani and a pedi. I've got my priorities in order don't I?

Where have I been?? Busy I guess...

I just want you to note that it is mid May and Z is wearing fleece footie pj's. I had to turn the heat back on a few days ago. Why do I live here????
E and Z both smooshed into E's little tiny blow up tub.
The little stinker is CRAWLING already. Crap, have to put those damn baby gates back up I suppose.
