embrace the camera

Some days are just greasy hair, no make-up, high school tie dye t-shirt, sweatpants, mac photobooth kind of days.  Yesterday was one of them.

I've been playing catch up all week as far as stuff around the house goes.  So yesterday we (I) decided to have a lazy (sort of) at home day (after the gym of course).  I was trying to pick up and clean here and there but little miss bossy pants had other ideas.  At one point I walked out of the family room without Ryann noticing to pick up some stuff... " (chatting to herself, and me I guess) ... and mommy do this.  Mommy?  HEY!  MOMMY!  MOMMY WHERE YOU GO!  Oh Mooommmy where are you?"  And then later I was trying to look for recipes on my laptop while she was playing with her toys... "(in a stern little toddler voice) Mommy come sit here.  Sit here, play with Ryann.  Now."  Honestly?  I was so taken back by that sentence that I just complied without telling her to ask nicely.

Oh my sweet girl.  I'll always call her my baby, but the truth of the matter?  She is nearly a little girl.  It is tough to find any baby left in her.  Sometimes that makes me a wee bit sad, but I'm also so happy to have a little friend around now.  She can put a smile on my face like nobody else!

For the record, I find it mildly ironic that I'm trying to be serious while posting pictures like this.  That last one is another that just makes me snort a bit.  We are just a couple of crazy goofy nuts over here!
