Here Mommy

On Saturday morning, I was sitting next to Evelyn on the couch. She loves to cuddle up in a blanket. She looked at me with sweet little eyes and said "here Mommy" and handed me a DEAD MOUSE! I freaked. Leaped out of the couch and Daddy quickly rushed Evelyn to the sink to wash her hands. Then, Mommy called Orkin. It was kind of cute. We speculate the patio project has caused them to come inside. Yes, pretty gross, but that's what happened at the Romley's on Saturday morning.

Visit to Firehouse!

Angela called up our local firehouse and asked if it would be ok to bring the girls by. They LOVE "woo-woos that help people!" They were a little shy when we were there and didn't want to sit in the driver's seat and honk the horn (can you believe that!?), but they had a good time and talked about it all day. It was pretty cool. A woman figherfighter spent a lot of time with us and was very sweet. Thanks to Angela for making it happen!

Counting and ABCs

Good news! Evelyn counted to 10 on her own (without repeating or saying "what's after 3") when she climbed the stairs. She did it again this morning, but skipped 7.

Sylvia can say her ABCs to G without help, but she sometimes misses D & E.

Great progress for 25 months, if you ask me! It's funny because the counting is great up the stairs, but when you have two kids, you can't just climb the stairs with one at their pace, you're often just trying to make sure they get up/down safely. So, we do a lot of counting before extra pushes on the swing, up the ladder, or before we do things. They are also very into the timer "set timer, Mommy." They like to brush their teeth for 2 mintues while singing ABCs. And, when they take FOREVER to eat dinner (my girls can eat!), we set the timer (3 more minutes to eat).

Making Pizza

The girls made pizza for lunch and had a great time. They even picked corn and peas to put on it. What good little eaters.

Fun in the Sun!

Although Daddy was working all weekend (and even stayed in DC Friday night), we had a great time. Friday afternoon, the girls had a playdate with their good friends Wyatt and Chip (of course Baby Gresham was in tow). They played in the pool and sandbox. That evening, Mommy's friend Melissa came over in time for baths and an adult dinner. The next day we all went to the pool (how about these cuties!?). Saturday night, Mommy and Daddy went to a black tie gala for Daddy's work. Sunday, Mommy took Sylvia to visit a friend who just had a new baby. The rest of the afternoon we enjoyed the humid, sunny day in the back yard!
