Three Word Sunday!

I had hoped (in vain) to get my China trip pics organized this week but I need to learn a way to post them without using the regular blogger uploader (which takes FOREVER!). Some bloggy friends have made suggestions like using Windows Live Writer and Flickr but I can't seem to get more than 5 minutes at a time (wonder why?) to learn how to do that. I will though, I will.

A few submissions for Pug Mama's 3 word video this week.

I love this little top on little miss (above). Just had to share that.
There are so many neat things about finally having a sibling for Dahlia. Not that it's all roses and sunshine - I am occasionally a realist - but my short-term memory, or rather the lack thereof, works very well for me.

Actually, it's more like living in denial (which I've done very comfortably for years now, thank you very much). Really, I think denial is under-rated. It can be a very useful tool.

But, how did I get off on that?

Oh yes.....the neat thing is Dahlia is enjoying her little sister more and more.
And it is such a delight to just watch them hamming it up.

We were at a party (another one....we're just party animals here) and Dahlia was having a ball blowing air, from a balloon blower-uper thingie, into Milana's mouth. And Milana was enjoying it even more.

Posts like these make the wait easier for me. I can't wait for this for the Tongginator, too. Thank you.

CUTE!! I love your pictures, your girls are both so adorable. It is magical seeing the children bond into siblings isn't it?!

Lisa (Briana's Mom) said...

All the pictures are so adorable! I love all that sisterly love!

(I always have to resize my photos to a smaller size to get them to upload on Blogger at a reasonable speed! It's a pain!)

Wanda, I can always count on your posts to bring a smile to my face..... I am looking forward to having a little sis for Sarah to play with too, but I know all too well that it will not be all sunshine and roses!

The girls are as cute as can be....Love the pink leaopard top....ADORABLE!!

I use FLICKR to upload all of my easy and it also allows you to use larger pics! let me know if you need help figuring it is worth it. It saves me so much time.

Have a great week!

Oh, it warms my heart to see siblings enjoying each other. That's one of the best part of parenthood for me. :) Great to hear that Dahlia and Milana are really bonding and enjoying each other.

I LOVE that top that Milana was wearing! Why am I not surprised that you find the coolest kids' clothing around? :)

NOTHING sweeter than a little girl with her daddy!!!

Teresa said...

We're not in denial, we're just choosing to focus on the positive things in our lives, right? Yeah, that's it!

Your posts bring a smile to my face too. Love seeing your girls with their daddy.

3 words....beautiful as always!!

Course you know I can't leave it at beautifully summed up the sibling relationship and brought greater depth to the reality of relishing the small moments! Especially on the day when they get crowded around the "less than sweet moments". :) The big moments are never hard to miss and sometimes can be up & down....its when you catch them out of the corner of your eye and they are holding hands or smiling at one another....or one shares with the other....its glorious!!

Your girls will always have one another.....that's a wondrous thing!

That is just adorable! I love the three word idea!!

I'm especially fond of those daddy pics. Sweet!
Good luck with the photo upload options. I still spend way too much time on that stuff but, no time to train myself on something easier. I feel your pain but, I'm in denial. :-)
