What's In Alicia's Camera

I took a series of pictures showing the process Lydia and I take while she screams in my ear and I make a futile attempt at calming her down... but that will have to wait until tomorrow, as I have found some other cute pictures I took this week and if I don't post them now then it'll never get done.

With out further wait... here's what's in my camera.

Jeremy seems to think there is a connection here:
Lydia started smiling last week. This is the first hint of a smile I could catch on camera:
Kitty Cat, somehow, look almost gleeful to be used as a neck support for a sleeping child:
Lydia is sleeping. Kyra is "not touching her." I couldn't pass up a photo op like this:
And then she asked permission to give her a kiss. How could I say no?
Kyra was so proud she didn't wake Lydia up.
But then she wanted to take a picture with me:
And then she wanted Lydia in the picture too:
And then it was Kitty Cat's turn:And that, folks, is what I have stored in my camera from this week. What's on your camera?


In other news, Lydia slept for 8 hours last night. From 8pm to 4 am. And after devouring 3 ounces at 4am she was back asleep until 7am. Does that count as sleeping through the night?

Kyra woke up at 7 this morning and didn't go to sleep again until 6:30 this evening, and nowhere in between did she have a single melt down or tantrum. She usually has a 2 hour nap and an 8 o'clock bed time to elude such things.

Are these two things in conjunction cause a giant celebration, or should I not brag for fear tonight Lydia will be up no less then 4 times and tomorrow Kyra will be an absolute holy terror?


  1. I love that you posted all those photos. You guys are so cute :)

  2. Kitty Cat always seems to be happy, almost as if it's just a fake smile stitched on her face. Hmm...

  3. i wouldn't risk the celebration too soon. ;-) the pictures are adorable!

  4. Aww! My nieces are the cutest! Lydia does resemble the cabbage patch doll a little currently...when she grows more hair on her head I'm sure it will not be as much. She is is freakin' perfect!
