A Few Firsts

This week has brought a few firsts...

We attempted to "de-mullet" Little Bit. Thus, her first hair cut.

I asked Sister to take the shots...not too bad!

Friday night I pulled Little Bit from the bathtub and she brought with her a blue rubber star. We have these stuck on the tub bottom to help keep the kids from sliding. I laid her on her changing table and began dressing her. She reached over to the wall and tried to stick the star to it. It, of course, fell...and she uttered, "Uh-Oh!" I squealed! And handed it back to her. And she did it again. And again. And again. She's obviously a genius!

Her first word: "Uh-Oh!"

And then I handed her her baby doll which she pulled to her face, placed her lips on baby's forehead, and said, "mmmmmm-uh." She kissed her baby!!! (And then promptly threw her on the ground.)

Her first kisses!

And now the games have begun. We are all vying for her attention..."Little Bit, say "uh-oh. Little Bit, give Sister a kiss!" And Little Bit plays. She plays well. Last night she threw her spoon on the ground no less than thirty-eight times and shouted "uh-oh" each time! Sister and Little Man are all too eager to retrieve chunked items. And Little Bit is all too eager to chunk items. We must work on this.


  1. Oh I love it!!!! Great pictures MW! :)

  2. I can't believe she's getting so big!! I am so glad you had a great week sans kids! I cannot even imagine! The couch looks great- I don't know how you did it to fit so well! I wouldn't know where to start! Are there instructions some where? I have a flowery chair that would be great for reading in the schoolroom if I knew how to slipcover! I think I'll pass on the dye though!

  3. so glad to know you are alive. whenever you can, CALL ME BACK! we haven't talked in two whole weeks! that's the longest ever.

  4. Precious! "Uh-oh" was my oldest's first word too.

    I believe you have a budding photographer on your hands!

  5. Oh my gosh, too cute! I can't believe she needed a hair cut! Emma does too, and she won't wear a bow anymore-she pulls it out and hands it to me, all proud like. I'm thinking, Man! Keep that bow in! Yay LB!!!

  6. Love that sister took the GREAT pics!!!
