All Worn Out

Margot fell asleep mid-play. Just after getting the bouncy chair setup for her doll, I looked over and saw her feet sticking out from underneath it. Then the snoring began.

It's times like this when I know I've kept her busy, entertained, and well worn out.

Getting Ready for the Next Storm

If you don't live near us, you might not know that we have gotten a lot of snow this month. Margot has had a snow day each week since the year started. We have huge piles of snow everywhere that is convenient to put them, but nowhere to put snow from the two new storms we're expecting this week. Our driveway plower came to the rescue. He rented a front-end loader and moved the piles of snow off to the side. This made for an exciting show while we ate our breakfast.

Margot has been working on dressing herself. The results have been pretty incredible. Here is an example of her sporting her best America's Next Top Model attitude.

She's growing, but still pretty small.

Extreme Limits of Thoughtfulness

Margot was playing with an ice cube today. She informed me that she had left it upstairs on top of her dresser. Fearing that it would make a mess, I told her to go get it before it melted and ruined something. So Margot jumped up and ran out of the room yelling, "Hang on, I'm coming Ice Cube!"

If her sister's going to be Queen, she'd better be a Princess, no?

(I'm trying out the photo-sharing link from Flickr to the blog . . . let me know if anything looks funny. You should be able to click through these images to the Flickr page and get multiple resolutions, etc.)
