The "Frankie"

Harper has gone from taking a few steps across the room to full on walking this week. She has added her own flair to the walk that has earned her the nickname of Frankenstein or Frankie.

Pre-School Bound

We heard this morning that Tyler & Harper were 
ACCEPTED to pre-school!
Mom was jumping for joy... 
below is the girls reaction to the news...

Tyler: "I'm not so sure about this pre-school thing. What in the world is mom going to do without us for 3 hours twice a week?"
Harper: "I feel so sorry for her. She must be sad."

The girls start school after the summer is over and we are ALL looking forward to this new adventure.

The Tale of Doggie

Tyler has a doggie that has been a constant companion since about 7 months old. Doggie has been a great friend to Miss Tyler & she has loved him to pieces (literally!) Tyler sleeps with doggie's arm in her mouth and when she is not asleep with him she cries out "Dog, Dog" at the bottom of the stairs until she gets up to the nursery to get precious doggie out of the crib. Seeing how important doggie is to her, we decided to order a few backups in case doggie completely falls apart in the wash. Today was the day the extra doggies arrived and it was better than Christmas for sweet Miss Tyler!

The Doggie Lineup
Far right is the original doggie
Poor dog's fluffiness has turned flat & discolored
We had no idea she had "loved" it this much!

Tyler gives all the doggies a hug

and a kiss!

She tests out the arms to make sure they taste the same.
Disgusting! You can smell old doggie from around the block.
Weekly baths don't seem to be doing the trick.

Tyler checks out the new dog to make sure it is the right one...

...but goes back to the original doggie. 
Uh Oh! This did not go as planned.

Walking the Dog

Our new afternoon activity... walking our dog around outside. The girls love it, Pearce not so much! Tyler normally holds the leash and Harper giggles about how funny Sissy is. And Pearce, well he just grins & bears it. 

Tyler holds the leash. 
Good thing Pearce only weighs 7 pounds...
 so there is no chance of him pulling her over!

Harper runs to catch up!

Walking the neighborhood
What a sight!

Tyler loves that Pearce will let her get close to him
She takes this dog walking job very serious.

Miss Harper
Getting more steady on her feet

Puppy Love!

For Valentines Tyler & Harper each got a puppy.... Just KIDDING! I think we have our hands full with two toddlers & a chihuahua. But the girls did get to spend the afternoon playing with Uncle Buck's brothers' new adorable 6 week old puppies. The girls were in love at first sight.

Imaginations running WILD!

This morning we went to play at Imaginon & I watched as their imaginations went wild. They explored every inch of this place and loved trying to figure out how things work. 

The girls cruised on cars

Harper played in the school bus

Tyler moved the beads around & around

Harper played with the marble tube 

and Tyler learned about colors.

A busy morning for two busy girls!!

Peruvian Princesses

"Aunt" Meriwether brought the girls some very cute hats from her trip to Peru and even though it was 60 degrees today the girls wore them with style. Our little Peruvian Princesses! 

And we have been trying for days to get a photo of the two girls sitting together smiling... not happening these days. They are constantly moving in different directions and very rarely sit still. We will keep trying... until then....

The Confident Cruiser!
Now that she has walking mastered she is starting to talk.
We have heard her sissy's favorite word "Uh Oh"
and what we think to be the translation of "Good Girl"

The Troublemaker
This is her "it wasn't me face"
see her other expression below!

"I've been caught!"

Harper flashes her new teeth. 
She has a new interest in her little toothbrush-
good thing because we almost have 8 teeth to brush!
