A Hippo, A Blanket, Mommy, and Me!

This weekend a package came for Caitlin. It was from family friends in Houston. (I used to babysit for the family...and now the girls are having babies of their own. Makes you feel old...)

Anyway, they sent Caitlin a BEAUTIFUL smocked dress with clovers and ladybugs....it should be PERFECT for next St. Patrick's Day. They also sent this blanket and hippo....



How much do I LOVE this blanket and the hippo?



Caitlin was congested and snotty all weekend. (I was calling her Snuffleupagus...you could hear the poor thing breathing from across the room.) We decided the pool was probably not the best idea for the sniffling one, so we stuck around the house with our new blanket and hippo.



I've saved the very best pictures for later in the week. There are a lot of out takes...funny faces...a LOT of hair pulling... hand eating (much cuter when it is her OWN hand and not mine!)...a few where she scooted out of the shot and we were left with a photo of a blanket and an abandoned hippo...you get the idea! The Irishman took some nice Mommy and Me pictures though that I had to share today.



Most of all we had fun...
and that is what it is all about!
