Three posts in one


Ella is fascinated by glasses, and understandably, I think. They have small moving parts. They are almost like a body part, but you can carry them around and play with them in a way that you can't with eyes, for instance. You find them in unexpected locations and Mommy always chases you once she sees that you have them. There are probably other reasons too. So obviously Ella was very excited to be allowed to try them on. We had quite the protest when the glasses were all done.


It is SO MUCH FUN to watch these girls start to be sisters. The pacifier has been an important object in their relationship so far. On the one hand, if Nora fusses and Ella can see she is missing a paci, Ella RUNS to find one, crying "nah-nah, nah-nee" and then attempts to jam it in Nora's mouth with utmost concern. It is so sweet, if not very effective in calming Nora down.

On the other hand, if Nora is not crying, but her pacifier is nearby, Ella is not shy about borrowing.

Also, there are some games that Ella has found out Nora can already play with her, like funny hat.

Nora is continuing to be quite the mellow and patient soul.


Here are some geese holding up traffic.

I just love when this kind of thing happens. It gives me two thoughts that I like: #1 Most of our normally road-rage stricken population has the compassion and sense to stop and give a flock of silly geese safe passage across a busy road. #2 Nature can still trump human traffic laws. So often I just get afraid that we really will pave all of paradise--it's nice to see paradise stand up for itself a little.

And with that, happy weekend everybody!
