olive & augustine




don't you think olive looks like ramona quimby? i am certainly not the first to draw this conclusion, not by a long shot. it's her hair i suppose. but i really think her face does too. this photo displays my current favorite outfit of hers (her shirt says "bookworm") and is from my sister in law brienne. and those tights! you do not want to see how many tights this wee girl has, im rather obsessed with them. potty training continues to go well with this little lass, even pooing! (aren't you glad you read my blog at times like this?)

augustine and i have been clashing lately and it's really bothering me. of my two kids i find him most like me and maybe that is why he can get so deeply under my skin sometimes? he is moody and emotional, dramatic, curious, talkative, slow-pokey, & always asking questions. those things can be really great and in most ways i find it endearing but those can also be a lethal combination when we are on the second straight hour of repetitive questions or he is being really slow when im rushing around running late and i just want to clench my hands and freak out a little. i can have a short fuse and i really really hate that. patience is the virtue that i struggle most with.

oh & olive has taken to calling auggie "augustine sigler" and it drives him batty. the more he protests the more she calls him that.

ETA: by request here is a video of olive saying it

Jenny, you have a nice 'mom behind the camera' voice. Good work! Also, my blog mentioned poop today too, so no worries. :)

Oh Jenny, your kids...they are so great!! That is so awesome that Olive is potty training so well. They say out of a boy or girl, girls seem to do it faster...I don't know, I have absolutely nothing to compare it too..lol.

On another note, I know what you mean about the nonstop questioning. Cody does the same thing and while you want to answer all their questions at the same time you want to scream...lol. I chalk it up to extreme intelligence. (yep tooting my own horn-well Cody's I guess)...lol

Oh and the Ramona Quimby..I can so see it. I used to love those books. I feel like they have replaced Ramona with the Junie B. Jones series. Cody LOVES those.
