Snips, Snails, & Pretty Pigtails

Okay. I'm stalling. I admit it. Ha! Here's a post I drafted back in the middle of May and never got around to posting. It'll have to do to buy me some time while I hunt for my camera software so it can be reinstalled. Grrrr....

Noah had a tooth that was just begging to be pulled. Look how crazy crooked it is!!

So...I actually pulled it myself. But only because Noah kept trying and couldn't get it, and it was just getting grosser and grosser. (I am NOT the official tooth-puller in this household.) But I just had to put an end to it! Lost Tooth #4.

Saylor is currently (5/14/09 being the time of this writing) wearing a two-toned, satin pleated skirt (from her dress-up closet) with a green tank top (despite it being 65 degrees right now). But that's better than yesterday's ensemble of the very same skirt worn OVER a pair of jeans, a top that didn't come close to matching the skirt, and red sparkly flip-flops. She always HAS been a little fashion diva.

Gabriel took off his diaper sometime in the middle of the night last night (again, this was written on 5/14/09) and then somehow proceeded to sleep late (8:30) this morning in a bed FULL of wetness. Ah, yes. So that's why pajama pants are a good idea!! Ha!

"You mean even when I get to be a big boy, I'm supposed to
LEAVE that wet thing ON?!"

Atticus has been sporting a Donald Trump/mo-hawk hairstyle lately, which only Atticus can pull off. I mean, just look at that face.

Next time "Snips, Snails & Pretty Pigtails" will be up-to-date...I promise.


  1. I have had many a toddler bed :) I had Noah and Abigail in toddler beds when Isaac was born and when all three of them were in one room when we lived in an apartment for a year and a half and were building this house. Then we moved and away went the crib and the toddler beds. Isaac went straight to a twin (I got the boys bunk beds when we moved here). Knowing that I could use it on two boys doesn't help make me want to buy one. I'd also have to get another crib sized mattress when we have 3 unused twin mattresses. SO... still not sure if I'll just put Abigail and Elijah in her full (she had a twin when we moved here but when we got a king 2 years ago, she got our full) or if I'll leave him in the crib for a while longer. He has made no effort to climb out.

  2. You have some super cute kiddos there, Lori. I don't know how you have the energy to do all you do. Super mom!! :)

  3. I'll be experimenting too. I just bought some oxygen cleaning stuff... some knock off brand of oxy-clean. I'll add that and see what it does. Why are you afraid of Borax? I ask b/c it is used in pools (soda ash... isn't that what it is?)

  4. Cutie pies!! I love your kids <3
