Yes, she knows what the camera is for! We get this expression a lot these days with and without the camera. You can't help but smile even when you're in the midst of something frustrating.
Since my mom wanted close-up pictures, this blog may be overloaded with them, but the goal this week was to please grandma nanny Kim (hence all of the blurry photos in the previous collage). So, here goes!
4th of July oufit.
For Independence Day, Grandmama and Grandaddy and Uncle Averett came up to see us. They brought along a feast of fresh veggies, fruit, and bread, and Grandaddy made real homemade peach ice cream. Fun! Rhianwen looooved Grandmama's 4th of July pin but was easily distracted by a good book.
"I'm going to flyyy away on a flyyyying trapeze."
We mostly ate too much and played with Rhianwen. The visit was ended with a walk around the neighborhood, which probably looked more like a parade with all of us marching around!
Yes, we intended to clash as much as possible.
Somehow, Rhianwen and I managed to find the time to goof off before church. The bruise is from falling on the corner of her toybox. Once that happened, I immediately went out to Walmart, bought the only corner guards they have (their baby selection is appalling), and stuck them on the toybox. Rhianwen promptly pulled one off and stuck it in her mouth. Thus mommy prevented a bruise hazard by creating a choking hazard. Bravo.
Practicing our cheesy smiles.
Another close-up for Nanny Kim.
The rest of the week has been pretty uneventful b/c I have had a cold. So I've mainly stayed on the couch while Rhianwen's played happily and come to check on me once in a while and to give me one of her huge smiles or to proffer me a toy.
Posing with Daddy.
One cute thing Rhianwen's been doing is she will stick out her tongue if we do.
In this picture, she is looking at Daddy who is sticking out his tongue.
At the end of the day, Rhianwen has her last bottle before bed.
Just who is ready for bed here?
You can't say I didn't warn you! Picture heavy it was! Now I am hearing "Lalala" coming from the monitor, so I must bid you adieu.
