pickles and baby birds

We have been really busy lately, but I'm not sure what we've been doing. I have been working a lot lately and Jon has been wonderful about keeping the girls when he's off. He even took them to the zoo by himself (not the first time he's done it) on Tuesday. They have been loving their daddy time! Just thought I would post a few random pictures--I haven't been taking very many lately.
Mamie's new favorite food. She must take after her daddy. She cries and wants pickles on her plate at every meal. Ham, cantaloupe, and pickles for lunch, pizza, grapes, and pickles for dinner, pickles for an afternoon snack...

Just a quick picture I took of the girls before school one morning. Lilly is writing "Love Lilly Carman" on everything these days. I love it. And yes, the binky needs to go. I am being so lazy about it. Someone tell me it won't be as bad as I think it will when I take it away. Lilly never had one, so I have no idea what to expect.


Our baby birds. We have had so much fun watching them. The mother robin built the nest right outside the girls' bathroom window, so we can see everything. If only I had a zoom lens, so could you! The girls love watching the mama bird feed the babies.

Love the picture of mamie with the pickle, it too cute. Hope you are all settled in the new house!

Here's what you do to break the binky habit: let your child fall from the bed and bust her lip open, take her to the ER so they can glue it shut, then it will hurt too bad to use the binky! It worked for us, anyway. :-) We called it our little blessing in disguise....

Oh my goodness! Love, love, love the pictures Brooke took! So precious. Those baby birds are pretty precious, too. So sweet for the girls to see. Michael loves pickles - seriously loves them - you so reminded me of him with that.

A friend of mine just took away the paci from her 2 year old . . they had the paci fairy come and pick it up to take it to another baby that needed it, and the fairy left her a gift (a doll I think). They were expecting a big melt down, no sleep the first night, etc . . it never came. She was totally fine with it. MK doesn't do a paci, but we are about to try the switch to the big girl bed and I am dreading that . . .
