Here's What's Been Going On

Okay, more pics, but also some updates...






Me: Postpartum -- being busy saves me from the inclination toward melodrama... oh and I'm still shedding like a retriever in summer, but hair is also starting to grow back and thank heavens for curly hair, mine doesn't stick straight out. For some reason, I seem to have developed sideburns.

Marguerite: Lost two bottom teeth. She's starting swimming lessons this summer. And one other class we still have to decide on. 5 yrs old and loves makeovers - not my influence.

Cameron: Cut two bottom teeth. Sits up from a reclining position, creeps/crawls (still isn't clear to me which is which), traumatized by the flavor of squash - refuses solids for the time being, except crackers and grains of rice and other choking hazards...

My dear, dear cousin Tricia graduated magna cum laude from the California State University, Fresno (she studied Nursing and French) and we're all super proud. Right now, my mom keeps on clucking her tongue (ad nauseam) about how I could have finished magna cum laude too if I hadn't gotten distracted by a boyfriend. My GPA was actually .03 from meeting the mark, but oh well... I'm over that. I'm just really proud of our Tricia, who's the original baby around here. Chip and I were the only kids here and then when I was 12 (Chip was 9), she was born. We were so crazy about her, such a beautiful, adorable baby/toddler. Now, she's MAGNA CUM LAUDE. :D

Congrats to Trish, and I'm not surprised at all that you were flirting with the same honors.

Nice tooth tradeoff for Midge and Cam!

Cameron looks so big now. Marguerite is like one of my daughters who is about the same age. Likes makeovers, too, certainly she did not get it from me. Maybe my sister. Congrats to your cousin. She's amazing.

@Sharkbytes: Thanks! And that's what I thought too about the kids' teeth.

@Chin chin: Thanks! I suspect my sister too, lol.
