highlights...

all of my babies classify as the sweetest but my little anna sure does win a sweetie award at nap time. each time i lay her down she grabs her boschie (i.e. blanket) sticks her hand to her mouth and blows me a kiss with a big ole smile. she sure is a cutie!

***************************************************************************************

monday i was in the kitchen cleaning dishes and i hear daphne and anna giggling. i go to see what it was about and this is what i found...anna being pushed around in the doll stroller.
*************************************************************************************

anna is a big fan of helping around the kitchen. on the top of her list would be unloading the dishwasher. this would be quite comical i am sure if the fly on the wall could hear the thoughts in my head. "oh no here she comes. don't stifle her desire to help. let her do it. get all the breakables and the silverware before she does." now once i have gotten all the "no touch" items out she begins her work. we have the unloading down now we just need to work on the put away. (note where the plates are being put.)

once the work is done it's a good time to put her feet up and have a drink. it's 5 o'clock somewhere...

Anna changes so much with each picture you post! She looks so much like Daphne! Beautiful! Oh, and the last picture is my favorite...she is a cool kid!

Great pictures! And good on you Mandy for letting her put the CLEAN dishes on the floor! And I agree that Anna looks soooo much like Daphne did at that age.
