JULY 5th: Honorable Mention

July 4 to July 9 021, originally uploaded by Kikigill.

I had to post this pic from the day before because LOOK at these kiddos! How stinkin' cute are they? They are playing a rudimentary game of peek-a-boo around a pole at Tanglewood. It really just shows so much about each of them and their relationship, this one picture.

Of Liam, it shows his current passion for eating EVERYTHING. I am thinking that he is just plain orally fixated. Yesterday, for example, he ate a bead. I wouldn't think this was a problem, except the bead was the size of a nickel and I heard him choking from the other room. When I asked him, "Where is the bead now?" He answered that is was in his froat...sigh.

Of Elena, it exemplifies her style of pack-ratting Everything goes with her, everywhere, always. See the backpack on her back? There are not enough packs, bags and cases to support her habit of saving every scrap of junk and carting it around. She always has items in her hands and arms as well, because they can't be contained by their container. It's really how she rolls.

So, imagine if you will the collusion of these two traits. Elena finding and hoarding small pieces of treasure and junk and Liam eating it all. It's hard to stay on top of it.

Emma is the same way with packs and bags. Holy cow some days I just want to go thru them all and throw everything out. There is so much junk!
