Summer Days

According to the weatherman, this June has been the "gloomiest" month since 1904 with only 4 sunny days!  But that hasn't stopped us from having a great time at home and out with friends.  And when the sun has peeked out, I remember why I love Boston summers and am so thankful to be living in such a beautiful place.  Here are some pictures from the past month and a half with some explanations...

This is one of my favorite outfits worn on one of the sunny days!  On the hanger, it looks sort of like a ruffled and decorated egg, so when I showed it to Ron, his response was, "Hmm, that's interesting." Not exactly what I was looking for.  But doesn't she look cute anyway?

This is Annie and her friend Skye (my friend Laura's baby), who's only 5 weeks older than she is.  They LOVE to play together - stealing each other's toys, babbling and screaching back and forth having their own conversations, and pulling each other's hair.  What fun!


Going to an 80's birthday party for a friend...too bad Ron and I got in an argument and we didn't end up going - ha ha!  I think she would have won the Best Costume award for sure!


Following are several eating pictures... I laugh at her almost every day while she's in her high chair and couldn't resist posting them.  She makes the funniest faces and just smiles and laughs the whole time. 


She loves prunes!


She hates green beans, but you'd never know by the sweet grin on her face.


She's very into eating things on her own.  No, I did not give my child a mud pie, but more of the teething biscuit might have ended up on her face, hands, bib and tray than in her mouth!  We're still working on it :)


This is what happens when Daddy dresses her... but they both have such a great time, who cares if it takes them 30 minutes? 


A couple of weeks ago on a Sunday afternoon, we headed to a specialty nursery with our friends Dave, Laura and their baby Skye.  Since Dave and Ron both work with plants, this was a treat for them!  We weren't planning on buying anything, but when we found a hosta plant variety called the "Brother Ronald" we couldn't resist!  


Here's Annie and me with our friends Laura and Skye, also taken at the nursery.


And here's Dave, Skye, Annie and Ron.  After the nursery, we went and ate ice cream at this farm - it was delicious!  


Ron can always make Annie laugh like crazy!  Here he's tickling her back with his beard.


 Annie scooted herself over to this plastic thing and she was so proud of herself!  She's not quite crawling, but gets around by pulling forward and scooting all over the place.  Any day now and she'll be completely mobile - yikes!

Lori!!! I've been missing your posts! And just missing YOU! I am so glad you shared all these photos and captions. Sweet Annie! She is getting so big, and look at those blue eyes. I love her 80s outfit ;)

LOL about not going to the 80's party because you had a fight...that sounds like something that would happen to Tim and I! We miss you guys and Annie is a total doll.

P.S. it is refreshing to know that even you and Ronnie fight sometimes!!! I often wonder since you two are the perfect couple! ;)
