My last post contains a real, unmodified picture of Cupcake...I don't have the slightest idea how to do much more to a picture than crop, get out redeye, and possibly change the color (mainly to a different shade, like sepia or blue or something). She is standing up against the couch and we had about 1 second to take the shot. But I only had to do it once. We did it with Tooty, too, when she was the same age. I know that because it's right before Daddy was deployed.
She has better foot placement.
I can tell these girls are going to be great friends. Tooty reads to Babygirl all the time, or shows her pictures, or just torments her. They both laugh and laugh together and Babygirl has put up with a lot, which I'm sure is the case with most babies who have toddlers for siblings. I took the chance the other day to let them sit alone on the couch the other day for a picture. It worked out well.
Tooty participated in the summer reading program at the library, which was AWESOME!! Each child is given a pencil and a paper to fill out (it's a picture of something and each section of the picture represents 15 minutes of reading). When your paper is filled, you bring it back and trade it for a prize. We just did one sheet, which each total 5 hours of reading. That is a lot when you are 2. Here is Tooty with her prize, a color-changing water bottle!!
She was super excited. Can you believe that's the bottom prize? I don't know what the rest were...I think I overheard a couple kids talking about reading enough to get the t-shirt, and possibly a beach ball. What a great program! We are signing up next year for sure.
