A Post Divided-Girl/Boy

This post is a bunch of hodge podge of our daily life here in the Reynolds' household. I tried about 10 times, really, to upload a video of Anna eating some rice cereal. It did not work out, so here are some pictures and I will try again next time.

Here is my view from the kitchen sink of Anna in her exersaucer. I just love watching her in it with her little legs sticking out of the bottom of it and her little feet. Such a change from Brice. She loves to stand up in it whereas he would just kind of sink into the seat of it. Not to mention her feet are so tiny whereas his were and still are more like that of Fred Flintstone! Sorry buddy, I love your feet and toes but...

Please only look at Anna and not the disaster of a house I keep when the kids are awake!
Look at that sweet little profile of my little girl.

On Sunday afternoon, the boys, Justin, Brice and Larry headed to Turner Field to try and watch the Braves' game (it was canceled due to rain) and left Anna and I to play. She and I rolled around on the floor a bit and I tried to get some funny pictures. Here are a couple.
She is not sleeping, just getting ready for her next move.

Which would be trying to climb me!

Back to the boy for a second, this is after their first attempt at a Braves' game. Brice was just excited about his hat so I can't imagine the stories I'm going to hear after Tuesday night's game!

And here is the girl trying to sit straight up in her bouncy seat. She does this every time I put her in the seat. Sometimes, she will even hang over the side and try to eat it!
"Who you lookin' at?"

An afternoon in the life of Brice usually consists of some sort of pirate action. Today, it was playing with the figurines rather than dressing up as a pirate.
The pirates at their jungle island. I was in charge of placing them all in their "positions" on the island. Brice took care of the cannon placement and treasure box placement.

The duck is surrounded by "buoys" in order to protect from any intruders. As you can see anyone can be a pirate when you come to our house. The Lincoln Log men, the firefighters, the real safari/jungle men, and then of course, we have pirates from different parts of our world: the pirate ship, the birthday cake pirates, pirates from Nana's house, and the Lego pirates. And, like Brice tells me every morning, "Now remember Mom, we are all still pirates and this house is our ship.". Aye, aye, Captain!

They are now aboard their ship in order to sail to their next destination where they will attack and steal gold from....

...The Little People House! The Pez in front of their house are trees, yet the Little People DO NOT know that the pirates have swords and will be able to cut down the trees. You see, they think they are protected by those Pez trees! How foolish of them. And the baby inside the house is going to be "sared and need her Daddy so make sure that Daddy doesn't get hurt". Okay, got it. And, yes, he did all the arranging of Little People and Pez trees! Such a first-born OCD kid!
