The adventures of Fat Lip and Puffy Eyes

Most of today was a good day. Most, but not all. We started off pretty good, with the girls sporting matching outfits, including cute little headbands. Amazingly enough, neither one tried to yank it off within the first 5 minutes, or even the first hour! Beyond that, well... they're only human!

We spent most of the day at Gran and Grandad's visiting with Alice and Estelle's Great-Grandmother, Isabel, and her mate Brian. Strangely enough, there are no pictures of that part of the day... Will have to take some this weekend.

On the way home, Estelle got to ride in her new car seat. She seemed to like the simile-velour cover and is just a little more upright.

At home, Estelle continued pushing her personal boundaries in the lean and stretch department. I swear she is going to crawl soon. In the meantime though, she is falling a lot and this evening got her first fat lip!

Alice was suffering from nap deprivation (she chatted her way through her nap, again) and so was a bit on edge. Asking her not to use her cup as a telephone during dinner, and to instead eat her food was the last straw. Then came the sobs and snots.

But now the girls are in bed and all is well. Except that we miss you so much, dad.

Fat lip :(

Rough evening eh boogs?
Estelle is still gorgeous with her fat lip and they are both so pretty in their matching headbands.
Can't wait to see you all!

Love those blouses! I agree with Aunty K, Estelle is still beautiful with her fat lip. Fat lips are a part of becoming a "toddler". Amusez vous bien. Mémé

I'm glad to hear the incidents were separate - wouldn't want to have to think they were in a brawl!
Can't wait to see you in September - gotta get going on my travel plans.
Have a great weekend,
