a sunday day…

again, today was both fun and productive!  jon and i both finished a bunch of yard work (i planted some mammoth sunflowers against the fence and a bunch of wildflowers) and then moseyed on over to the faire…

jasper was very jon-centric today – she wasn’t all that interested in her mama and only wanted her da to hold her and love on her…and he loved every minute of it!  well, mostly…if i ignore the desparate, “daune, take her for a minute – my back is killing me!” plea that i heard a couple of times today…not that it did much good because i would gladly take hold of her and within a couple of minutes she would be struggling to get down and run over to her da…she just wanted her da!

here are duncan and jasper lilith hanging out…duncan told heather and i that we should be taking a picture of them and then offered to hold jasper’s hand for the picture but jasper didn’t cooperate and just wanted to wiggle around and be silly instead…but that is ok, sugar, your daddy will surely want to put off holding hands with a boy for as long as possible!

heather, doesn’t it look like duncan just told jasper a joke or something kind of silly story?  i love it!


couch tales…

we had a productive weekend but we still managed to grab some downtime and scarborough faire time…and chocolate truffles – jasper lilith managed to grab a truffle or two and proceeded to devour them in a way that left tracks…and handprints…and little toddler toe prints…and then lip prints all over me when she kissed me before i could wipe her clean…

and did i mind?  are you kidding?  did you not see the picture right above you?  how could anybody mind a chocolatey kiss from a little sweetie pie like that?  in fact, i probably would have given her another truffle in exchange for a kiss (wow, am i easy…) but jon put a stop to that and into the bath jasper went…with a big smile on her face and chocolate all over her, me and the house 🙂

on to the next day:  jon and jasper lilith spent saturday morning on the couch – watching noggin, acting silly and being sweet…

they were having a wrestle match for the drum sticks…i am not sure who won – jon’s toes or jasper’s hands…i am guessing that with jon being as ticklish as he is, an inadvertent slip on jasper’s part would have sealed up the match right then and there 🙂

i walked into the living room to find jasper arranging and rearranging her giraffe on the pillow…she would lay him down on the pillow and then pick him back up only to lay him down again in a different position…then she would stand him up and pat him (like she does the dogs) for a bit before starting the process all over again…i think this shot has caught her in a distracted tv moment 🙂

we had a good day!
