Welcome

To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time. ~Clara Ortega

"The fundamental job of a toddler is to rule the universe"

.............................................................................................

“A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.”

“You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.”

“It is true that you may occasionally overhear a mother say “Children must have their naps, It’s mother who knows best.” When what she really means by that is that she needsa rest.”
............................................................................................
Isn't that so very true. Each and every one of them. I have tried to document this stage and in my head I think "My posterity will LOVE all of these pictures" So, here is to you posterity. Enjoy.

recent events: Pulling the botton drawer open to stand in, in order to get to the top drawer
-dumping out the button bag
-racing dogs up the stairs (and later sorting out the dog food into three different pots)
-leaping from the chair to the table to get the laptop (really, no exaggeration on the leaping)
-crawling under the pews at church (great entertainment for whoever is behind us. I stopped being embarrassed or worried MONTHS ago of what people may think.)
-eating the JELLO dessert all by her self that was meant for three people
-........................................................................
she is a really big ball of energy and we do just love every moment of it.
