Grandma Dog

By the time I started filming, grandma barking had lost some of its appeal, but it was still pretty good stuff. Also, a sneak peek of our new kitchen in the background.

Is it just me, or is Inara becoming a little girl version of Andrew?

Alba loves watching Inara jump on our bed and Inara gets a kick out of Alba laughing at her shenanigans - works out well!

Important People

Andrew was putting Inara down for the night and after it had been very quiet in her room for about half hour, I walked in there and found this:

It reminded me of how lucky I am to have these two in my life.

 It also made me feel happy for children who are fortunate enough to have fathers who are involved in their lives and made me feel sad for the many children who don't.

Everybody but me has spent the last week sick with a fever and cough which meant that me and the girls spent pretty much the whole week cooped up inside. To say that we suffered from cabin fever would be an understatement. Today, Inara finally got to go back to preschool and Alba was well enough for some time outside. In other news, we got the keys to the house this week! We're getting new paint and flooring for the next couple of weeks and then it will be ready for us to move in. I can't wait to not have to lug the kids up four flights of stairs and to have our own yard. We're even going to have a dishwasher (for the first time in my life). Since I haven't posted for a while, I'll just through a bunch of pictures from the last couple of weeks at you:

We built a house for Inara.
Yes, they are both in there.

Alba thinks Inara is the funniest person on the planet. Pretty much half of what her big sister does makes her burst out laughing. I was trying to film Alba laughing at Inara hopscotching, but it turned into mostly filming Inara trying to prevent me from filming and having a grand old time doing so. By the way, if you're struggling to come up with something to do on a dreary day, I highly recommend using tape to make hopscotch on the floor.
