March 2013 photos of my kids. The entire series is viewable here.
Alice, 16 months old.
Charlie, 4 years old.
St. Patty's Day. I had these great ideas for dressing them in Kelly green, painting shamrocks on their faces, filling the house with balloons. Instead, this is as good as we managed that particular Sunday. Alice has been grumpy (I don't even know if that's the right word to use) so dressing up and photos have been far down the list to keeping everyone sane. You can see here that Charlie is trying to soothe her.
We don't have a big back yard. It's bricked in and half of it is covered by swimming pool. They like to play on the little wooden porch just off the back slider. And share snacks. This is a common pre-dinner spot.
Sometimes they aren't in the mood to play together. So they just give each other space. If only adults knew how to do this.
