Thank you to everyone for your words of encouragement regarding Liam's speech. It was a rough day and I know the road will be long and winding, but we'll get there. And the ten bucks goes to Fran - Liam said, "Mommy, there's a big bug in the school bus!" after he found a giant roach in his toy bus. (Please don't judge my housekeeping skills. This is Texas and there are roaches - really big roaches, which proves the old "everything in Texas is bigger" hypothesis.)
As promised, a cheerier post - with pictures!!
It's tradition in Texas to take pictures of your kids in bluebonnets, the state flower, during the Spring. It's a tradition I love and I really hope we can continue it until the kids are grown. Or until they threaten to disown me for forcing them to do it yet again.
We took some individual pictures:
Sydney and her toothless grin.
Liam, who looks so grown up!
Evan, with his sweet smile.
The group shot didn't turn out so great.
But the group shot in front of the river made up for the not-so-great bluebonnet picture.
And the ice cream at the nearby Blue Bell creamery made up for a day's worth of being forced to "Say cheese!"
