Keren & Clare Hangin' Out

I caught some fun shots of one of Keren and Clare's snuggle moments. These are so great because it shows them both at their finest :) . I've got a video clip that goes with this that I'll try to post; for some reason I haven't been able to for the past couple days.

False Start and Then Success

Clare is our songbird these days, and it's a joy to hear her sing. She loves to make up tunes, but also sings favorites like "Jesus Loves Me." Recently she was serenading us at breakfast, and agreed to perform for the camera. Unfortunately, being a girl of the 21st millennium, she wanted to see the video immediately, even before the song was done. So her first performance resulted in these renditions:

Her second try was much more successful!

New Cousin

Be sure to check out photos of our girls newest cousin--and our first on my side of the family!--Zachary Ethan Bash.... Here's the link to their album:

If you don't get that far, you can definitely get a glimpse with these two photos:

Isn't he adorable? And of course we aren't at all biased :) ....

Photo Shoot

A few weeks ago we were able to have my friend Joan come take photos, particularly of the girls. She started her own business just a little over a year ago, and does a beautiful job of capturing the vibrancy and innocence of kids. I've been wanting her to get pictures of our girls since Evelyn was born, and thought that Evvie's first birthday would be a good time, so here we are! It also worked out well, because Joan and her family are moving :( .... We got these just in time!

You can see a selection of the photos at Joan's blog, the May archive:

The photos start with Evelyn on May 19 and end with a family photo on May 27. You can really see our girls' personalities in these. Enjoy!

Evelyn's Birthday

Yesterday was Evelyn's first that possible?!!! We had a great group of family and friends over--not too many, though the number of kids kept multiplying :) . It was our first "party" at our new house, and great to see how the ebb and flow of people worked.

...Anyway, we did take a lot of video, but most of it's on the video camera and I haven't tried to download any of that yet. As a result, the bit here is Evelyn thoroughly enjoying the e-card sent to her by Uncle Brian and Aunt Jessie in Macau. As you can see it was a big hit! She liked Aunt Carrie's e-card too--watched it really intently--but I'm afraid it was a little beyond her humor-wise. Someday she'll get it! Aunt Carrie did score in her goal, though, which was a card with lots of action! Next year Ev will catch the humor, too, Aunt Carrie! :)

I'll put up photos on our Picasa album, Just the ones I have from the party--I haven't gotten Dad's zillion yet!

Evelyn has been strutting her stuff across the floor in our new house. It still boggles my mind that she's just nine months and doing this already. That and the scary fact that she loves to show off with it!

Here's a tidbit of Evelyn practicing her standing. I haven't caught steps on video yet, but it won't be long....
