July 24, 2008

SORRY!!! As someone pointed out - I've been a big ol' slacker! I do have a couple of legitimate excuses, but I admit, it is mostly due to my innate laziness (it's not my fault - I was born that way!). Anyway, J got her first nasty, stomach virus - and in yet another show of selflessness, shared it with Ryan. How, after being thrown up on about 25 times, I avoided this bug is nothing short of an act of God. Nobody ever told me that being a mother was so darn glamorous! If I had only known, I would have signed up years ago. All kidding aside, it was SOOO sad. You just can't explain to a one year old that they are sick and that mama just can't make it all better.

Anyway, I have a ton of pics that I have taken since last post. Because there are so many, I put them in a slide show. Let me know if you want me to post any individuals from the set. There are a couple of pics from a walk that Ryan, J and I took at a local county park a few days ago. Ryan was stung on his foot by something (we think maybe a hornet?), and it was a pretty nasty sting. Well Julianna was SO upset that Dada was hurt. She just cried and said "Boo boo" over and over again. The rest of the pics are mostly from just hanging out around the house and "pool side".

Picture Hodgepodge

Here are scores of pics from the last week that I didn't get posted.

Going for a hike?

Practicing her javelin throw for the 2016 Olympics!

Lovin' on Daddy.

At the park

At the little playgroup we recently joined.

Shooting the breeze with a friend.

Playing with chalk in our driveway.

Playing with (uncooked)macaroni at Grammy's.

Snuggling with blanket and bunny.

With Granddaddy

Daddy leaning in for a kiss. Notice that Buster doesn't want to be left out!

*Post with pics from the 4th below!

Pictures from the 4th

Sorry, sorry sorry! I know, I promised new pics over a week ago! Oops.

Ryan and I weren't sure how Julianna would react to the the fireworks, so we just bought a couple of fountainy fireworks and stayed home. Our neighbors put on quite a show though. It was hard to tell if she actually liked the fireworks, just tolerated them, or was scared in to a state of shock. She didn't cry, but I can't say that she did a lot of smiling and laughing either. After the fireworks were over, she did make the sign for "more", so I guess that's a good sign (really, no pun intended)??? Well, without further ado:

Sparkler with mama.

Daddy looks like he's having fun...

As Ryan called this picture "Run for your lives!"

Watching the show with Daddy. So cute.

Her hands are saying more, but her face is telling a different story! Hee!

July 2, 2008

Just posting a few pics. I have several more I want to get posted, but just haven't uploaded them to the computer yet. I will try to get them up tomorrow or Friday.

Snuggling with Kitty and Blankey

Julianna sat with Poppy for almost an hour and hardly moved a muscle. I think it was some kind of record for the longest she has ever sat still!
