Before we begin, can I show you a couple of pictures that aren't Instagrams? They aren't very exciting. (I really should have been a salesperson.) But I think they're hilarious and kind of amazing.
So - Piper likes my phone. Because she likes to talk to Siri. If you don't know Siri (*cough*Dad*cough*), that is the name of the voice on the iPhone. You can push a button and a voice is all, "Can I help you?" and you ask it something and it gives you the answer. Or performs a Google search for you. So. Piper likes to talk to Siri. She has also figured out how to take a picture of whatever is on the screen. So often I will find pictures like this.
Then today I was pulling pictures off of my phone, and I found this:
So Piper opened Siri and obviously said "Mama," so Siri searched it for her. How fantastic is that!? I don't know. I found it fun. So anyway, let's start.
|Why is it so cute to see babies bang on toys with a wooden hammer? I don't know, but it is.|
|So we broke out the old NES. Yes, from 1987. Boom.|
|Paxton loves riding the horsies. I love that shirt.|
|Xander's cousin, Riley, is almost 3, and they're becoming buddies. It's really cute to see Xander realize that Riley's not a baby anymore, and see them play together.|
|We have (mostly) had really amazing luck with dogs. I mean, look at this. Get rescue dogs, people. They deserve it.|
|My boys can get lazy. But it's cute.|
|Xander has always been partial to Piper. (If we tell her "NO" sternly, he says, "Please don't be mad at her! She's just a little girl!") But lately he and Pax are palling around too. I love it.|
|Xander bought a bike with his birthday money. Then the brakes went out and he bought a different one. Either way - we've been cranking out some miles on the Greenway.|
|I love Paxton's face here.|
|Piper has always liked putting her hand in the running water. She now puts her face in it, too. Such a daredevil.|
|Speaking of daredevil, this is her standing on a ROLLING drawer so she can look out Xander's window.|
|We are having insanely beautiful weather, so we've gotten outside every single day to take advantage. Xander was impressed by his rainbow this day.|
|I put 2 pictures together to get one of each smiling. Please disregard the hand without a body.|
|More Nintendo. He thinks I'm a rock star when I help him play Mario. (How do I still remember how to do it? My hands just automatically know what to do.)|
|Pretty girl. I just love her.|
|Big boy. Love him too.|
|Lucas has been refereeing (huh?) some local football games. The kids were excited when he got back from a few yesterday afternoon.|
|Xander went to Ghost Train at Tweetsie! We had a blast. Until he had a meltdown from lack of sleep. But he's all caught up now.|
|And. . . this was earlier tonight. We're breezy.|
And I am heading to bed. Love you all - thanks for reading!
