My beautiful girl with her face covered in baby powder.
She was being quite a stinker that morning when I was changing her diaper. I was chasing her around the house trying to get a photo when I had the brilliant idea to open the front door and when she came to inverstigate snap some shots in the lovely diffused light.
It's that time of year where the wild African daisies invade my mother in laws neighborhood.
There are just a couple of homes where the homeowners let these flowers takeover their front yards for a short time. The blooms only come in yellow and orange and just scream to me that spring in Tucson is here.
I have found that these flowers are actually quite hard to photograph. I haven't been able to get the colors just right. On this day the sky was completely overcast and I thought that would make a satisfactory result but yet again I have not accomplished color accuracy. I have a few weeks yet so I'm sure I will try again.
A little over a week ago I took Chelsea to see an Opthmalogist. Chelsea had begun to go a wee bit cross eyed on occassion. The doctor determined that Chels is far sighted and that this could be corrected with glasses.
So off to the eyeglass center we go. We tried on a few frames, Chelsea likes to try on glasses it seems
We settled on this last pair and 7-10 days later I'm trying to keep them on her face. Every day has gotten better but it is still a struggle.
How cute is she??
I'm not sure for how long she will have to wear these but we will see the doctor in April for a checkup.
Chelsea's vocabulary has been growing by leaps and bounds. Since she turned 18 months in December we are used to hearing her say, "bye, see you later", "eat" (this is usually said to Wyatt because he eats so slow), "go get it", (this is said to the dog as she throws him her food) "stinky", (when she needs to be changed). Now at 20 months she is adding, "no thank you", "please" is also more consistent but then so is "yes" and "no".
Gosh I have so much to catch up on...I still have to post about Kelly and Wyatt's report cards, cookie booths, building the media center (which I will be doing tomorrow), Rob's crazy tree trimming, the finches have started laying eggs and Kelly pushing Chelsea on the big kid swing.
Life sure does move fast sometimes, but now I need to go change a stinky diaper.
