Ball Games

Ball Games, originally uploaded by adamooo.

Let's just say the girls are having a certain amount of fun on vacation... More on Flickr - let me know if you can't get there.

Sisters (Weekend)

Some shots of the girls...

Crazy great hair (requires a unique angle - or lots of gel?)

Isla's suddenly gotten all roly-poly and likes to spend time on her tummy interacting with things. She's getting really good at pushing up to get a look at the action, and even trying to work her legs into the act as well. It's now quite possible to find that she's not still where you put her down . . .

I'm really psyched with the idea of the girls being able to play together. It's not all there quite yet, but they can now really interact with the same thing or with each other. Margot's always been great with Isla, but we're getting close to some mutuality. I figure I'd better enjoy it now, before they team up and turn on me.

Hard to tell at first, but this is basically Margot dancing in circles to amuse Isla, and Isla eating it up.


Vacation shots from the Cape, for those keeping track at home... We'll try to keep up the posts. 'Cause, you know, we're umm, wicked busy.

Goin' Mobile

Apparently we're entering the frightening age of having two mobile kids. I put Isla down on the floor-gym mat this evening . . . a couple of minutes later - "where's Isla?":

Oh, there she is . . .
... happy as a clam, under the coffee table! Looks like she's learned to back up.

Isla napping

Isla fell asleep while sitting on my lap. She is doubled over forwards holding on to her foot. Not sure how long this will last, but it's super cute!

Closing Ceremony

Margot's "Bears" class had their "closing ceremony" today for the first year of pre-school. It was a relatively low-key deal with parents and some grandparents and a short program including a bit of the kids' usual "movement" and music activities and a chance to say thanks to the teachers and staff.
