Weekend Recap

I'm finally getting to the Monday weekend recap. Saturday was pretty much dismal. Daddy was still not feeling well and it pretty much rained or was cloudy most of the day. I cleaned house, Hollon played and Daddy laid around. Nothing interesting.

Sunday, Lallie and I went to church (I was wearing Lilly which is always fun!) Lallie was NOT a happy camper in church....we are still fighting her temper tantrums. She just wants to go to the playroom. I guess it's time to consider Sunday school. She's like me, a people person, so she'll fit right in! Oh, and I think the massive chunk she decided to bite out of my arm might have helped me make that decision! Have I mentioned she's feisty???

Don't get me wrong, Lallie is an absolute peach 80% of the time. She's obedient ("all right mommy"), she puts her toys away when asked, she doesn't throw much of a tantrum when she's told "no." But, church is a whole other story. I really think fellow church members think she's like this all the time, but she's really not like that at all!

But I digress. We swam all day Sunday afternoon, it was BEAUTIFUL and the winds we were getting from Tropical Storm Claudette made it nice and breezy (though we hope no one was hurt or received any damage from the storm). We actually got to take a walk! We had so much fun in the pool. Lallie loves to jump off the side and Daddy was able to snap pictures of the three stages of the jump:

Stage 1: the preparation

Stage 2: the jump

and Stage 3: the splash

I just love the look on her face in all three pictures, absolute joy!

I am trying to teach her to swim, it's not working out to well because, well, I'm her mommy. Here, I'm trying to get her to kick and I say "kick, kick, kick, kick, kick" really fast. She didn't listen. It'd be better to hire a swim teacher.

I just thought this picture is cute, I have no idea what she's saying, probably something important like "my mote" which means "my remote." Daddy, the remote no longer belongs to you! Whaaaa Haaaa Haaaa Haaaa Haaaa!!!! :-)

We tried multiple times to take a good picture before church. It just wasn't working. This one of us is pretty decent except I'm not quite sure what I'm doing with my eyes. It's like I'm trying to open them as wide as I possibly can. This is a recent picture taking development. I wasn't always like this.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
