Things are up and down here. We seem to have the screaming baby stuff a little more under control thanks to swaddling and bum smacking. Yesterday Frances was up for several hours in the morning and again in the afternoon, and she didn't cry at all, yay! Of course she was also up every 2 hours like clockwork through the night, boo. Today she rolled over from her back to her belly. It's awfully early for that sort of thing, so I think it was just a fluke, maybe the couch cushion she was on was slanted somewhat. I'll believe it when it happens again.
Anyways, here are some pictures of our summer:
Grandma and Grandpa put Mary to work in the back yard.
Cooling off in the pool at Grandma and Grandpa's place.
Look! Her eyes are open and she's not screaming!
It's hard work being kids.
We got Mary this doll shortly after Frances was born, and she loves it. The other day she accidentally pulled off one of the dolls arms, and let me tell you, it was pretty tragic around here for quite a while.
Me feeding Frances, I didn't even realize this picture was taken.
Again at Grandma and Grandpa's place, I think those are Grandpa's shoes.
