We had a really great time in Northern Va at Bob and Liz's house this past weekend. We got to feast on some delicious Peking Duck at the most crowded dinner ever, the girls got to play dress up and sleep in nests in Aunt Budgie's room, and we got to see Brain for the first time in over a year! Everyone finally got to meet Norah Lynne, too.
Poor Norah had to stay inside and watch her sisters play outside. She didn't mind, she actually enjoyed the show quite a bit! Shiloah filtted around to lots of different activities while Hannah stayed put at the painting station for a very long time. She painted her entire self, including her face, eventually.

Yes, you can hear her singing above all the others, she did a great job! Unfortunately I didn't capture the absolute best moment of the entire show on the camera -- as the principal announced the song Baby Bird, Hannah shrieked with delight, "Oh Mommy it's Baby Bird!" It was so sweet.
A few weeks later we met a little girl at the playground who recognized Hannah as "The Baby Bird Girl" like it was the best thing she'd ever seen! Hannah was like, um.... yeah, so what are you talking about?

As part of our summer learning one day we created butterflies on paper towels with water colors. Hannah took her time and covered the entire paper towel with deliberate color choices and ended up with a beautiful butterfly. Shiloah painted two very distinct spots with every color she could(which made brown) and then said she was done. But she sure had fun!
Those purple glasses on Norah: they belong to a cabbage patch doll that Scootie brought us. Shiloah put them on Norah when I wasn't looking! Norah didn't seem to mind. She is such a happy baby! She loves to roll around on her belly and make very loud squealy noises. Very loud. Sometimes loud enough that we can't hear each other! In the picture of her on the blue mat she is smiling at Shishaw.
