Writer's Workshop Thursday - 2 Random Pictures

Here's my assignment for this week's Writer's Workshop. Head on over to Mama's Losin' It to join the partay for yourself. All the cool kids are doing it.

The assignment...

Post and write about the 6th picture from (the 6th folder of) your Flickr account and then do the same for the 6th picture of the 6th folder on your computer.


Here's the 6th picture from my 6th folder in my Picasa account (don't have Flicker so I had to use Picasa - sue me, okay?)















Meet Uncle Colin. He loves Kaylee to pieces and is currently away at school. He got to spend an entire day with Kaylee and my mom the day he got back because I had to work. He loves making her face do funny things, and this time around, Kaylee decided she'd repay the favor by rearranging his face as well. We're talking jabbing of the eyes, smooshing of the nose, scraping of the inside of his mouth with her sharp little fingernails - the works.

Now, for the second part of the assignment. This here is the 6th picture from the 6th folder on my computer.















This is the first time Kaylee ever discovered a toy and showed interest in it, proceeding to whack the crap out of it. This little orange elephant used to hang from the handle on Kaylee's carseat and has been fondly named, "Rrrroberto" (you have to do the tongue roll at the beginning or you are pronouncing his name incorrectly). Roberto no longer stays attached because his clip has lost the "spring," so he's been replaced by a musical frog who sings when you press his eyes (that's where she learned how to jab our eyes out...).

Anyway, I remember this day vividly. We were getting ready to leave, and I was in the kitchen doing something. All of a sudden I hear the jingling bell of Roberto, and there is my little sweetie - just batting away at the elephant. Notice how he's the only one moving in this picture. She got so excited that she could hardly stand it. It was so much fun to watch.

I'm so thankful that I get to be home with her part-time because it just makes my heart melt to watch her learn and discover new things. I just love it.

I know what you mean, it is so cool to see them discover new things.

Hey Girl! Loving your new tunes!! Fergie is rocking out as I type! Love the photos! Love the writing! You captured it so exactly...that excitement when they first discover a toy and what it feels like for them and for you. How lucky that you caught it on film! You rock!

She's so little in the second picture! I can't believe how fast they're growing and changing. My BIL totally loves to make faces on Noelle, too. I'll have to see if I can dig one of those up...
