Baby in the Iron Mask. Why she pulled this onto herself I have no idea.

True love.

A lazy, messy day.

A happy Grace.

A content Suki.

What a smile!

I think her sister shares the same smile -- I love it.

Big fun!

Suki and Grace both love The Surprise.

All smiles.

What a smile.

Another big smiler.


Suki really wants to play with the house.

Getting closer...


What good sharers.

These girls really love reading with Dad.

Grace striking a classic pose with the ducks.

She loves putting the ducks in "the reeds."

So focused.

Ready to go to the grocery store.

Another classic Grace face as she contemplates her options.

Today at the store she got her first pinwheel! It was a big hit.

Smiling in the chair.

Hiding behind a hand.

More interested in the cord on the box than the books within.

You need a lot of chub to make a face like this.

July 28, 2007

Every morning when the four of us are home we gather in our bedroom and drink coffee/milk, read and play for an hour or so before going downstairs for breakfast. It's such a sweet, special time but rarely photographed because the camera's not upstairs. Most of today's pictures are from this time, though, which is why we all look a little rumpled :)

Suki looks up at Dad.

Grace traipses around with the lamb and the duck (the same ones from this sad day, they are still such dear companions).

A little reading.

Grace looks down at Suki -- she's so amazed at how much Suki moves around now and the toys she's suddenly able to play with.

Practicing her crawling.

Enjoying the latest Dora book from the library.

Up with Dad.

Cuddled up.

Bringing the duck "back to the pond."

Suki loves playing with the Gloworm.

We had a special treat today when Uncle Sandile came over to visit!

Grace was up for her nap but Suki had a great time.

So cute together.

Suki loved playing the maracas today!

Looking up with that adorable chubby face.

Fun with the sticks.

Playing her piano.

Checking to see if anyone's left her a tip yet.

Perfecting her mother's look of long suffering, Grace grudgingly shares with her sister.

A little kiss.
