A catch-up and a keep-up

For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbours, and laugh at them in our turn? 
    -- Jane Austen, P&P

What happens when a professional musician comes home, takes off his tux, and gets on the floor with a cheesy 1/8 size violin and 3 silly little boys? (This video was taken almost a year ago, but I just can't resist. It's too perfect for the new blog. :)

(Fluffy and the fiddle are reading from Kevin Henkes' Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse.)


And Project 365 Rosebud continues! These pictures are from last week, and she is now 8 months old.

(tragedy! I need to put some weights on her head to stop her from growing so fast!)

Day 245


She is now officially uninterested in my camera.

Day 247


No crawling yet.

Day 248


No teeth yet.

Day 249


And no sleeping through the night.

Day 250

(Exacto formed a stuffed-animal barrier here to keep her from falling off the bed.)


Just sheer cuteness.

Day 251

Rosebud is SO beautiful!! I love her sweetness.

That video is AWESOME. You should tell us about the other musician games your boys play. I would love to see a video of some of the crazy harmonies you come up with.

Oh happiness. Somehow your blog is always one that lifts me up (which is NOT my general emotion when reading blogs).
And, I remember you once told me that your hubby did that talking violin thing for you when you were dating and what a clincher it to hear some for myself!

What an incredible family you have.

I couldn't get the video to play for me. I'm sure it's something simple that I'm not thinking of (but, I'm pretty lame when it comes to computers). =)

Do you just stare at that beautiful little princess all day long? I've looked at these pictures about 7 times today. I can hardly take my eyes off them. Rose is so so so beautiful! Just like her mommy.

Loved the talking violin and those happy Baker boys! (Great inclusion of Exacto!) The photos of sweet Rosebud were adorable. Can hardly wait to hold her again. I think of her and you every time I put on "my" necklace. From Day 251 it looks like she will still smile for the camera. That is the important part! So glad you are no posting again!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your new blog theme! I've missed reading your blog, I'm glad you're back. Your family is amazing and Rosebud is precious!
