All Wet

Lilly wants to be one of the big kids so bad. The other day she just got wet in the sprinkler and then followed the big kids all around the yard. It's so sad how the get the idea to do things before they're actually able to do them. Even though she struggled to keep up, I think she had fun!

New Haircut
(Thanks Adrianna)

Lilly and her Raggedy Ann doll

Little Beary has been reunited to our family!
We called the landfill and asked them to search through piles of garbage for this guy.
It took them 6 weeks to find him, but they came through.
They sent him to the cleaners on his way home, since he was filthy from being buried in trash for so long. Little Beary looks as good and new, and is so happy to be home. Eli teared up when he opened the package, and won't go anywhere without him.
Apparently Little Beary not only missed Eli, but missed helping Eli drive his toy backhoe combo.

Oh, to be three and believe in magic!

Little Beary

Eli lost his little Beary at the 4th of July Parade. He loved that little bear, and brought him everywhere we went. He still cries about him being lost, and we've made every effort to find a replacement. He talks about how the little guy is out there lost and scared, and Beary doesn't understand why Eli isn't coming to rescue him. He says the people who clean up after the parade must have thought Beary was "Parade Trash" and cleaned him up. He says Beary must have been put in a garbage truck, crushed in the hopper, and buried in the landfill.
It's such a sad story, I find myself missing the bear. He used to sit on the front seat next to me in the car, strapped into his own seat belt.

The problem with replacing him is that he's so small. He came with a bear snowsuit we bought when Eli was little. He's cream colored and about 2-3 inches tall. If you've seen this little guy we'd love to come and rescue him.

Here's a link to an auction on Ebay (that I missed) picturing the little bear in the pocket of the snowsuit.

Pigtails and Kisses

Lilly's hair is finally long enough to put into little pigtails, and I couldn't be happier!

Yesterday Pearl and Lilly were kissing each other.
Pearl started it, she came in for a kiss and Lilly totally kissed her back!
I have never seen anything so cute in my entire life, we're definitely saving these for blackmail later.
