Scarlett's First Family Day

A Few Random Pictures, and Family Day...

Scarlett is VERY  particular about what she wears and sometimes she is so insistent to wear certain articles of clothing, even when it's not the right time.  For example here, she insisted on her hat (and this is the ONLY hat she will wear) even though we were not going outside.  She wore it all day, inside.

 On January 15, 2010 Scarlett joined our family and in that time she has blossomed and grown and been an absolute joy to all of us.  To celebrate the big day, we went to a small Korean restaurant here in Cleveland called Korea House, and it was AMAZING. The decor was simple and the food delicious.  We all enjoyed ourselves.  Here are a few pictures.

Raggedy Ann was a big hit.

A Little Photo Shoot and a Classmate's Gymboree Party

Scarlett was on her way to a friend's birthday party at Gymboree, and since she was in a really good mood, I snapped a few photos before we left.

This is her new little table. She needs a little help getting on the chair.

Seriously. Could you not just eat this child? Sometimes I can't even handle her cuteness!

Once we got to Gymboree, she was for the most part just an observer, until they broke out the bubbles and the parachute. 

Scarlett always like to sit when she sees a piece of furniture that is her size. She doesn't care much for chaos.

I marveled at her when it was cake and ice cream time. I was fully prepared (see bib) for her to take a dive straight into that green cupcake and cup of ice cream, but you would have thought she was Princess Diana having tea. She daintily ate what she was interested in with her spoon, and had maybe a couple of crumbs in the corner of her mouth at the end. I can only shake my head at the difference between this girl and her brothers at this age. Wait, she is neater than her brothers NOW! Lol!

I had to take this picture because after I buckled her in her seat I looked at her and this is how she was, not a bit of complaint.  She looks so uncomfortable with head smushed in her coat like that.  I did adjust it, but had to take the pic.

Bananas and such.

 Scarlett has only recently begun to enjoy bananas. I think she's making up for lost time.

Shaker Heights has a fantastic library and a wonderful playroom for toddlers.  Scarlett and I decided to check it out today.

Where does this go?

Got my necklace. Got my baby. I'm good.

This is fun!

Happy New Year!

Eddie's sister, Sandra, came to town from Chicago and together with Eddie's parents, we all went to dinner on New Year's Eve.  It was a long, 5 course meal, but the kids did great.  Happy New Year!
Whenever I take her picture, I squat down. Now, when she sees me with the camera, she squats!

Blogger is driving me Cookoo

Just so you know, I know my blog looks horrible.  Ever since Blogger changed things around I have had the hardest time figuring it out and consequently I've hardly posted at all.  So I just wanted to say, hang in there with me until I figure it out! Happy New Year!

It's Been a Busy Year!

Phew! Between Scarlett's homecoming, moving to Ohio, selling a house, renovating a's been a whirlwind year! I thought I'd recap with a little photo here.

Grrr! I was so excited today when I saw that Flickr will now let you click "Blog it" to add pics from your Flikr sets directly to your blog. But unfortunately, I can only do it one pic at a time and today was SUCH a big picture day and I don't want to sit at this computer for 5 hours. So in the interest of time, here is the link to the pics. Enjoy.
