Ruthie was quiet for a little while. I found this.
At least she is understanding the basic concepts of the process.
Since Katie is watching a baby, we pulled out the baby swing, which apparently Maddie was missing.
She always was my swing baby. She sat in there, swinging, and watched Elmo most of the night. She kindly kicked Ruthie and Jamison whenever they came by her to try to sit in the swing themselves.
They do get along when ice cream is involved though.
Lily showing off her amazing bubble blowing skills to Maddie. She was in awe of her big cousin. Granted, Lily can not tell them apart, so she refers to both of them as "my little cousin". When asked which one it is she finally admitted that she didnt know who was who.
The fun continues for a few more days!

She brought me the "flower"...
Ran through the fields with the "flower".....
Sat and examined the "flower" closely....
and even smelled the "flower".
I didnt have the heart to tell her it wasnt a flower but instead a weed that was the main cause of my allergies acting up and me having to take massive doses of Clariton that day. Why ruin a good photo opportunity with details like that!

I have no idea why Ruthie could possibly have a vision problem. Why would she go cross-eyed? Isnt sitting 6 inches from the TV perfectly normal?
She had never seen a TV down on her level and she was glued to it. She kept touching the screen the whole show. I have no idea how she could see anything that close, but then again, she does walk into objects quite a bit on a normal basis. It is hard to judge when that is your baseline.

I think the following pictures officially make my girls GRITS (or Girls Raised In The South for my northern counterparts that are reading this).

Maddie has become obsessed with emptying the dishwasher. I have to watch her because she will try to empty out dirty dishes if I am not paying attention. I, of course, use this to my advantage. She just needs to get tall enough to put them in the cabinet now. Watch what happens at the end of the video when she cant get the last dish out.
I wonder how she feels about pushing a lawn mower?

Although Ruthie likes to be talked to on the phone, Maddie likes to talk on the phone. She has full on conversations that are completely not translatable. At dinner last night, Maddie sat through the entire dinner with her play cell phone to her ear, conveniently held by her shoulder, so she could continue to eat her chips and dip. It was the funniest thing.
Mark has been gone for the past few days to Harding to see his brother graduate. Maddie has taken this opportunity to bring me my phone several times and say, "DaDa". We then call him and she says "hi", "DaDa" and "bye". After we got off the phone she continued the conversation with him, despite him not being on the other line.

I wish she would pick up on the educational things that I show her like she does the Wiggles!

It looks something like this. This is Ruthie throwing herself up against our glass door because I walked outside to let the dogs out. Now, think how many times a day I have to let the dogs out and that is how many times a day I see this....
I cant help but laugh when she squishes her face up against the glass. I can only imagine what my neighbors think of of me as my child is screaming and I am outside taking pictures of it. I dont think they will be nominating me for any Mother of the Year awards.
