I think I should just start calling this my photoblog! Here is just a cute shot of Lucy. I had gotten her all ready to leave the house, and she just looked so cute I had to grab my camera!
Oh, and to any of you who live near the U of MN–if you find any clearance baby gopher stuff, you know where to send it! Ski-U-Mah!

If any of you are cosleepers or considering cosleeping, please know that the following shot is not recommended. Siblings should not cosleep until they are at least 18 months old. The older girls always start the night in their own beds, and usually don’t end up in our bed at all, unless someone (namely Mama) wants to snuggle and sleep in. Then they crawl in and usually fall asleep again. I had to carefully crawl out of the bed to take this photo.

Olivia outgrew her bike from last year and Norah grew into it, so we upgraded Livi to the next size and went riding! The last time we rode bikes, Norah was still on her tricycle, and somehow, on a three-wheeled, normal, little-kid tricycle, Norah managed to fall off so dramatically that she scraped up both hands on the palm, both elbows, both knees, and the side of her ribcage. Can you tell that Livi and Norah are completely different??? Livi always jumps off her bike before it falls and usually ends up standing over it as it is lying on the ground. So when we upgraded Norah to the two-wheeler with training wheels and Livi to a bike that just seems huge compared to her 12″, we also upgraded to elbow pads, knee pads, and biking gloves. I know, I’m a crazy, overprotective mother. BUT on this outing I captured video of Norah using all of the above when she fell off her bike. The first thing she said was, “I just didn’t hurt!” So there.
As you can tell, Olivia spent some time just running around without the bike too. That’s where I caught her running down the path.
Now, the fun of having Photoshop Elements is that I can do neat things like this:
And silly things like this:
I can also take a photo and change it into some sort of drawing medium, like this:
Too fun!!! That’s all for now!
