She's A Southpaw

Lauren is a southpaw, she is doing everything left handed, she works her computer mouse lefthanded, she writes & colors left handed, she eats with her left hand. She's a lefty :) and she does have more clothes than these striped shirts she's always in but she always picks the "rainbow" shirts to wear. I choose my battles carefully with her, it makes life a little easier :)

oh, and speaking of paws Jake graduated from obedience school this weekend. Lauren got to take him on his graduation march around the store, she was so proud :)

*excuse the picture/post order, ever since I had my blog redone I can't post pictures with captions under them, not sure why*

Taking out her contacts

Today Lauren was standing in front of the bedroom mirror playing with her eye, so I asked her what she was doing. she said " I'm taking out my contacts" HA, she is definitely watching every thing I do.

Also, on a potty training note, she has gone on the potty 3 times in the last 2 days. If she keeps it up all weekend Mommy & Daddy are taking her shopping next week for a special toy. she has been asking for a backyardigans guitar she saw in a magazine so that would be a special potty treat :)

An Impromptu Playdate

We met Noah and Jeremiah for a picnic lunch at the park today, Lauren and Noah are two peas in a pod. At one point Lauren fell down and Noah went and said " Lauren are you ok" it was so sweet, he even held out his hand to help her up. We also went after lunch and had Gelato, the kids loved it.

Atlanta Reunion 2008

BubbleShare: Share photos - Find great Clip Art Images.

We had a great weekend visiting with old friends and meeting new ones as well. The reunion turned out to be alot of fun despite my worrying :) We are so blessed to have an extended family in our Hubei group. We love them all and cannot wait for Reunion 2010 in St Louis. It was fun to see the personalities come out that you don't see on the blogs. Josie was alot quieter than I expected her to be and of course Miss Annslee was her wild self, Liana is so sweet, Jiali was alot of fun to watch and so were her brothers & sisters, Ellen and Lauren are alot alike in attitude and sassiness, Molly took it all in and Jenna had fun on the elevators, Mikayla watched it all with her brothers by her side, Caeli was the cutest thing and very fast to get away, we didn't get to see Lily come out much but she enjoyed playing with the others also. All in all the girls are beautiful and spunky, just as it should be.

Soccer Class

Lauren had her first day at soccer class today, she absolutely LOVED it. It's a program offered through our county park system where she'll go to soccer for 4 weeks and then it changes to 4 weeks of T ball. It's for 3 and 4 year olds so it's a great learning tool for her, there's no soccer teams here for her age so this is the next best thing. She had the best time out there and talked about it all afternoon. :)

Tallulah Falls

We took a day trip out to Tallulah Falls
while Steve was on spring break, it was a neat place to visit. It's about an hour or so from us but was well worth the trip. We got some good pictures of Lauren with the tulips at a restaurant we stopped at but the picture of her sticking her tongue out is her usual defiant nature :)

Atlanta reunion is 1 week away, see you all soon. :)

The Stepstool

Steve built Lauren a stepstool so she can reach our sink to brush her teeth & wash her hands. Well, he let her pick the paint for it and she got to help paint it. She picked a Disney Purple so here's the finished product. It's Beautiful right ?

Lauren & The Sandbox Meal

I am being served pizza, cheese and purple drink, ala sandbox. She is also talking about the shirt her "big papa" sent her from Las Vegas. Basically just random cuteness of my girl. :)and before you ask, she never wears pants unless we go somewhere, she refuses to wear pants in the house or in the yard. :)
