talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Fun for the 4th

This is the first year we went to the local fireworks display. Coincidentally, it's also the first year it's been held at 10:15 p.m. because of our newly enacted time change. Dark IS actually beneficial for fireworks, though trickier for sleepy little girls!

After a day of frolicking with friends in the backyard, Fiona fell asleep easily enough for a little shuteye before our nocturnal festivities; but Nora, sensing excitement, couldn't fall asleep until right before we left the house.

This was Nora's first fireworks display, and the grandeur was not lost on her. While the rest of us cheered, clapped, and chatted with our friends, Nora looked to the sky with a disarming mixture of awe and alarm. She pointed skyward and said, "Change!" She hooted, "G(r)een! B(l)ue!" and "Whoa!" By about five minutes into the show, though, she had settled into the spectacle and was loving every minute of it. In fact, it became too exciting for her to watch while seated.

Fiona was thrilled to see flowers in the sky again this year while sitting next to her good friends and family, and also glad to actually SEE what all the fuss she's been listening to at bedtime for over a week now has been all about. Hooray for the red, white, and blue! (Though all those other colors didn't look too shabby in the sky last night, either.)
