This Pink Matches!

Last Friday morning Simone and I were playing on the landing during our one-on-one Friday morning time (Serena and Annika were at Spanish School), looking over the fifteen thousand little wooden beads that were strewn across the floor from early morning three-girl playtime. Simone picked up a pink bead and held it next to a […]

Oh. Okay.

Simone is 21 months old. She LOVES conversation. In fact, I’m pretty       sure that her love of conversation is the reason she is having significant trouble (read: refusing and or passionately resisting) sleep suddenly. Sometimes it takes her over an hour to go to sleep. (Funny parenting side note: with Serena – and even still […]

Mommy, Daddy and an Ambulance Driver

Here’s an email I got this evening from Anne Terese, our extraordinary, awesome, fabulous caregiver for the girls: **************** Hello Michelle, I jotted these down earlier today and thought I’d send it your way while I was still thinking of it! An exchange while drawing pictures of you, Jim and myself: Annika: Daddy is a […]

Singing a Chorus

Serena and Annika have recently discovered these trees that have what they call fairy wings growing on them (I think we always called them helicopters growing up.) They love taping these fairy wings onto the backs of their stuffed animals to turn the animals into fairies. Then the animals go to fairy themed birthday parties. […]

Serena said…

Walking up to me while I scan The New York Times headlines online this morning: Annika: “When we were at the park, Serena said there were alligators in the bushes.” Me: She did? Annika: “Yea – and I said that maybe they were tickle alligators.” Me (laughing): “Did you say they were tickle alligators?” Annika: […]

Walkin’, Talkin’ and Chompin’

Simone is definitely walking now. It’s still trepidous and can go awry at any given step, but it is by far her preferred mode of transportation. We even took a neighborhood walk yesterday, three girls with their strollers (Simone actually had a little push scooter thing with her baby in it) and me. Serena and […]

Today is Tomorrow (from March 22nd)

Serena and Annika are having a lot of fun hanging out with each other. I love to listen to their conversations. Serena likes to pretend that she is the mom and Annika is the daughter. Sometimes I don’t love to hear what she says to Annika, such as: “Annika, you need to sit right here. […]

Uh-Oh

          Simone mimics anything she can muster. Her favorite is “Uh-oh!” It’s bit more like, “Eh-OOh”, actually, but she just keeps practicing and getting closer to the exact intonation. She LOVES when she successfully mimics a sound we make. I wish I could think of other examples, but she’s doing it […]
