Littlest Big Girl

Auntie took this picture, I'm pretty sure Tessa was inviting Alicia to " 'M on" (come on).


If I'd never met these two people before this picture would make me instantly fall in love with them.


Sweet girl. Happy Mom. Big Belly.
(Also, who knew Tessa was such a blondie? We have no where near the same hair color!)

It was a great day to be a dog at the beach. And a great day for a little girl who loves "dods" to be at the beach.



Tessa has just learned how to whisper "secrets" in our ears. She may have learned to whisper during the infamous pea-cupcake incident when Auntie and I were conspiring while Daddy was in the bathroom. When he came out we went silent but Tessa turned to him and said "Pss, sssppp, sp. Ssssppp, ppppsss, ssssppp," in exact replica of what we must have sounded like to her.

She feeds the kitty every day. The only thing I have to do is open the fridge so she can get the half a envelope of food out. Then she takes the clip off, opens the package, picks up Quincy's bowl, dumps the food in very thoroughly, puts the bowl on his tray, centers it with the bowl of dry food, picks up the stray kibble that has fallen out of that bowl...and usually dips her hands in his water to wash them off.

Tessa knows some complicated words. Applesauce, orange, purple (but not pink or blue, too easy), octopus, jacket, cocka doodle doo.

She "gets" webcaming in a scary way. She used it to get Grandma and Grandpa U** to rub their bellies and pat their heads over 2,500 miles away. And if you talk to her on speaker phone its a guarentee she'll try to show you her baby through the handset. Speaking of that, if she gets a hold of the cell phone she holds it with both hands and types with her thumbs saying (what sounds like) txt txt txt txt txt. Perhaps this is because someone who sent over 9,000 txt msgs a month lived here for a while.

Yeah, 36 weeks! (I'm doing a jig... in my heart, of course. I'm still sitting on my bum.) Are you off bed rest then? Cuz baby can come any time now and be just fine. And that picture of you and Tessa with your adorable preggo belly is priceless. You are adorable. And seriously, it's not that big. My 36 week shot is going to be horrifying.
