As promised, here is part 2 of the mermaid shoot. My beautiful, goofy, crazy Haley-Bop!

I love her “really mom?” face.

“Mmm. Which tastes better? My tail or my fingers?”

“Whoops. I fell.”

I love when she’s serious and trying to figure something out. She starts breathing heavy, it’s her little signal that she’s concentrating very hard.

Clearly, my little mermaids are cannibals.  Both way more interested in eating their tails than anything else.

Not quite as catchy as baby beluga, but not all of us can be talented songwriters.

The part of the title that probably got your attention is “part 1”. Part 1? Part 1, you say? You mean there’s going to be more?

Yes! Make sure you check later today for Haley’s stint as merfolk.

For now, here is beautiful Hazel as a mermaid. A mermaid who is very confused by her tail.

“I’m a what??!!”

“Oh, okay. I guess I can be a mermaid.”

“Mom. Have you seen my tail? It’s pretty cool.”

“What do you mean ‘don’t roll off the bed’?”

She’s a beauty for sure. Still can’t believe Nichole made these beautiful dress up clothes for them. Thanks, Nikki!

Cause that’s what this post is. I mean, I guess it’s a little fashion themed, but I feel a little like a rubber bouncy ball that a five-year-old just threw with all the force in their tiny, adorable, compact little bodies and now I’m ricocheting off of walls and floors and ceilings… It’s ridiculous.

I have got to stop writing posts in between my first and second cup of coffee.

I want to show you guys the girls’ Halloween costumes SO BAD! But it’s August and it was 101 degrees last weekend and being the responsible momma that I am I bought Pacific Northwest Seasonally Appropriate costumes (okay, Gramma bought, but you know what I mean). I am not about to try to stuff the girls in these costumes in this heat just to take a couple of pictures. Also, we’re not *quite* sitting up yet (so close) and there’s going to be an extra special amount of cuteness once they can sit up and wear these costumes.

All that being said, I’m going to give y’all a sneak peek. Just a little teaser to make you start longing for crisp, October air, scarves, hats, boots, potato-and-leek soup…

Consider your peek sneaked! (Why does that sound dirty?)

On a not sneak peek note, check out the adorableness my friend Nichole made for the girls!

Scroll up and reread that line if you need to. That’s not a typo. She made them! By herself. And they look so much more awesome in person. I had no clue she had done this, or mailed them, and when I opened the box I might have screamed in a pre-teen I’m-going-to-a-Backstreet-Boys-concert kinda way. Maybe. It’s good thing my only witnesses do not yet possess the power of speech. It’s going to be a sad day when they can tattle on momma.

So what all this basically means is that there are some really cute photo shoots that need to be planned which translates into y’all having some very cute photo bombs in your future.

How’s that for a happy Monday?

This is our hutch. My parents have had it since I can ever remember and now it’s mine and someday I will figure out what I want to do with it. It definitely needs some TLC, I just can’t make up my mind what to do. Anyway. Currently it is where we stash all the stuff that we don’t want the Puzz-cat to mess with, like the camera bag and all the accompanying cords, any plug-in cord, my old laptop that I’m trying to salvage things off of, the hard drive that I’m moving said things onto. And it was working great. But look closely at the picture above. Do you see what I see?

I guess it wasn’t such a great plan after all. And do you see her proximity to the highchairs? Hazel was pretty excited to see her when it was lunch time. Almost as excited as she was to see the chinchilla a couple weeks ago. Have fun with that image! And no, I don’t have pictures, but there was a chinchilla in a cage, me kneeling down level with the chinchilla, and Hazel in the baby carrier facing out. I’m sure your imaginations can do the rest.
