peeky-boo.


i've noticed the lack of pictures on this site, as of late.
too much posting over here, perhaps?? and believe it or not ... i'm getting caught up on the 365 challenge! i'm almost to where i should be ... even if i am posting silly pictures of crap in my house! wanna see crap in my house? click here! (if that's not a glistening advertisement for my 365 photo challenge blog ... i don't know what is.)

so today ...

a little game of peek-a-boo ... or peeky-boo ... in cora-speak.

has anyone else noticed my love of cora-speak lately? i think i talk about it all the time ... i'm loving her little mannerisms and word choices ... i love how she is overwhelming us with vocabulary and funny phrases ... and how she's so absolutely silly ... it melts me. she does things just to make you laugh ... and she loves to laugh along with you. my littlest-little ... i wish you all could see the sunshine that she emits constantly. i hope you all have a little of that in your lives ... it's marvelous.

and my biggest - little? that girl is growing up in front of me ... she is all-of-a-sudden a big girl. a big - ready for kindergarten kinda girl. she has complete thought processes and concerns and loves to write names and letters and add in the back seat (ok, mama ... tell me another one! ... hmmm ... what is 3 plus 6 plus 2 ... *busy fingers* ... ELEVEN!) she loves her little sister and cares for her and helps her out of the crib in the mornings ... just to help a mama out ... when i'm busy with the zoo.

so there you have it ... a post that was intended to be a simple game of peeky-boo ... turned into an oh-how-much-i-love-my-girls post.


a game of peeky-boo ... and the unfortunate location of a sippy cup. ignore it ... just look at those faces ... see what i mean? typical cora - watching to make sure that i'm giggling and typical stella - making sure that her little sis is happy.

did i mention my melting heart?

I have a "ready for kindergarten" big girl too. And I can't stand how fast it is that she grew up. And I am loving her more each day with her amazing personality. You have a couple of cuties there.

Oh that's so stinking cute.... especially Stella doting on Cora, I love it. Elliot just learned peeky-boo a few weeks ago and she puts her hands on top of her head and thinks she's hiding. It's so cute.

They are adorable! I love to see that older sister/younger sister interaction going on. And I love the 'cora-speak'. We have G-speak in our house and you're right, the little twists on words just make it so much more endearing.
