Sort of angrily looking out the window because I kept trying to get her to pose for JUST A QUICK PICTURE and she was not in the mood.

Thoughtfully contemplating a grape.

Banging the cups together.

Also quickly losing interest in having her photo taken.

August 22, 2007

Solemnly regarding her duck.

Listening to some music.

When Suki's really interested in something she says "ooh!" with her mouth in a perfect circle like this.

In this case, she's playing with a doorknob cover.

Practicing playing.

Grace plays carefully with the ceramic panda family, a gift from my grandmother to me decades ago.

Once more with the piano sharing.

Grace plays with the Alphabet Game while Suki tries to reach the pen under the table.

Suki cuddles up with Dad after dinner.

Sitting at the dinner table.

Looking with the good condor eyes.

Heading up to bed.

Grace sometimes requests we remove various articles of her clothing -- today it was her shirt. With that cumbersome garment out of her way, she clambered onto the couch for a little reading.

Cranky McGrumpy, about to get into her bath. I swear it's not all topless all the time around here.

A little bath in the sink.

Looking out the window.

All wrapped up!

Celebrating the return of Keyboard-O-Rama.

Suki trying so hard to stand.

Grace gives Suki a kiss.

Playing with the piano together.

The things Grace puts up with.

Dancing with Dad.

Back at the piano before bed.

Another fun day at the pool!

Suki peeps out from her "nap."

Reaching out for the shade.

Floating with the kickboard.

Amused and looking around.


Swirled through the water by Dad.

Holding on tight to her father.

Holding herself up.

Up so high! Grace was tossed in the air a plenty today. Even when her face went under the water twice she emerged calm and happy.

Practicing her swimming.

I love the way she looks at her dad when they're swimming together.

She loves the water so much!

Cuddling up with Suki.

Playing with the star stack.

Suki was playing with me on the other side of the room but when she saw Dad reading to Grace, she was off like a shot.

A careful approach.

Enjoying the book together.

Suki gets a goodnight kiss.
