Vanessa is looking so grown up! She can put this dress on with only a tiny bit of help from me, and she can take it off all by herself. That's one of those skills that is a bit of a mixed blessing... Vanessa has also been impressing us with a handful of genuine somersaults (also a mixed blessing) and saying "I love you!"
Vanessa saw fish and so many frogs in the water down on the river.
Vanessa really enjoyed walking around in the water with her Daddy.
One of her other favorite parts was snuggling with Riley! My goodness, she really does love that dog.
Here is a rare picture of all four of us, outside the lodge.
We were also lucky to have several friends visit us. I've noticed that while Elizabeth seems to fuss less in general lately, she seems to know who I am more and she fusses when passed off to others. Rats. Well, hopefully, I'll learn soon how to have other people hold her in such a way that she's more content.
Our friend Sara visited at the same time.
Peter was such a great kid to have in the house. He is a very funny and very cute little boy!
My friend Pete paid us a visit too, but somehow I didn't manage to get a picture! Vanessa and Elizabeth do keep my hands full some evenings...
