A conversation with you


i took some quick pictures last nite of the stack of layouts i've done to date that i hadn't posted. not the best pictures but i think its more important to get these up here - and hopefully show that i'm still plugging away and you can too!
this one is a two pager with pics of my cutie when he was somewhere between 2-3 months old. I would set him on the floor on a blanket and just start snapping pictures - talking to him all the time. I talked to that child all the time - I think it's really important to talk to babies. No baby talk - just regular chat. He seemed to love it. And was always talking right back to me - very animated as you can see by the pics. He'd babble and coo and squeal. We'd have a good old conversation. This continues today (sans the cooing - we definitely get some babbling and the occasional squeal!) The kid is a talker. He tells me everything (well probably not e-v-e-r-y-thing but most things - to the point I have to say hey... I'm your mother - I don't want to know that LOL!) He cracks us up most times. I recall a particular time - he was maybe 3 and he had woken up before us. He was quite happy and laughing and we all went downstairs to the kitchen to get breakfast. He told us he already had breakfast. We asked him what did he have? He brought me to the cabinet where the cereal was - I thought omigosh he got himself cereal - I said did you have some cereal? He said - No - I had cookies! He was laughing and thought he was hilarious - he knew he shouldn't have had cookies - but he also didn't lie about it. That's this kid. (can you tell i just adore this kid?) We did indeed have a discussion about cookies not making a good breakfast - just so you know.....
oops - in case you were wondering those alpha stickers are SEI (gosh i love using up my stuff!)
okay. gotta go.

Great pictures! BG (before girls) when we were at a family beach trip with Doug and all his cousins & their children, Doug and I grabbed some cookies for breakfast. We thought we had been sly enough, but little Kelly saw us and told her Mommy (Ann). Doug and I vividly remember Ann responding to Kelly, "We don't eat cookies for breakfast." Ann does not remember, but we felt horrible about making her job more difficult. Now I know if I want cookies for breakfast, to make sure my children are already on the school bus. No matter how sly I try to be, my Julia always finds me out!
