Our fun this week.

This is Eva's sacred blanket. I was in the other room for a minute and came back in to discover that Eva had gotten out of the tub, found her blanket, and climbed back in with it. She was so happy. I was going to take a picture of the water after the blanket had gotten completely submurged, but I was too embarrassed at how brown it became. She never lets me wash the dang thing, so I was kind of grateful she put it in there with her. At least it got washed...sort of. Of course, I had to get her out of the tub because it ended up making her more dirty than before she got in it. Then she freaked out because I wouldn't let her drag her "B" everwhere around the house soaking wet. I had to eventually hide it from her while it was drying because she kept trying to get back in the tub to get it.

This has got to be one of my favorite pictures ever. Too bad it turned out a little fuzzy. A couple things about this picture...I'm a bad mom and let them watch "educational" TV shows. hee hee hee. This is how I found the two of them the other day. She has clothes on under that soccar jersey, but she just loves that big shirt. It actually belongs to the neighbor girl who is eight, so it drowns her. She borrowed it for PJ's one night and that was it! She fell in love. She where's it around the house over her other clothes. She won't play dress-up with all the cute little tu-tu's she has, but she loves this dang thing. What's wrong with my girl? Then, the fact that she's using Gabe's belly as a pillow? She's a total nut. What's even funnier is that Gabe loves it! She sits on him when he's in his carseat and I hear him laughing his head off, not crying that she's on him. He loves to play with her hair too. It's so cute. They really love each other. They sat like this for quite some time that day.

These two pics are of them just chillin' together again. And, of course, it was while they were watching dora. Eva has really gotten into Dora the Explorer. Are any of your kids into her? I think she also has a major crush on Diego. Gabe just rolls over next to her and hangs out. How do you like all the folded laundry I didn't put away for two days? It just sat in the living room for two days until I was tired of refolding it because Gabe kept destroying the piles.

Doesn't she look so grown up? She's changed so much since Hans has been gone. It's crazy how much she's grown.

She reminds me so much of Leah, but with darker hair. What a cutie. Abby was totally in to Dora but Leah's never really been much of a TV girl, so she's not a huge fan. -Jess

I love the picture of Eva on Gabe's belly. That is hilarious! I can't believe he doesn't get mad. Lauren doesn't like sharing her space with anyone and wouldn't handle her sister laying on her very well! I'm glad that Eva and Gabe get along so well...and it sure makes for cute pictures!

She looks exactly like you. It is so weird to me. Only the hair makes her look different. My boys like Dora and Diego but we don't get those channels.

I can't believe Gabe just lets her lay on him like that. It must be love. My girl likes Dora, but never talks back to her when she asks questions and pauses forever. Diego is not her favorite, because he finds BORING animals, and it takes too long. At least that is what she says:)

That's hilarious Natalie. I know exactly what you mean about the long pauses from Dora, too. Eva used to just sit there during them. Now, when they say something like "say backpack" and wait, then they say "louder" wanting you to say backpack louder, well Eva says "louder" not "backpack". It cracks me up. Diego does have boring animals sometimes. Like the sloth. What's that about? That's not exciting. Your daughter is a smart girl.

Eva is getting so big and her hair is so long! Is she going to be 2 or 3? We were having this discussion the other day at Chris and Jim's and we weren't quite sure which it was.
Henry and Ella like Dora, too. Although right now Henry is all about Caillou.
And that's funny about her blankey. Good thing it got a bath!
