Beach Days and Ladybugs
This afternoon we went to play on the beach one last time before we go home. Meilynn found a ladybug the minute we got down to the beach and then Emma found one. I have never seen a ladybug at the beach before.

I love these pictures
I don't know how she came up with this pose, but once she started doing this they all decided to show me their pose.

There is this thing going on in our house, I guess you would call it trying to get approval, or copying, or something like that. As soon as one does something then the other two have to do it to. So for instance in these photo's, Emma started the posing and then they each insisted that I took their picture doing the same thing. If I say, "Meilynn, you are being such a big girl." Then I hear, "Am I being a good girl? ' from the other two. After awhile this gets really old. I cannot praise one without making sure that everyone else gets praised. I think this will just be a phase but I hope it goes fast. They also do it with talking. I call it not having an original thought. Emma says, "Mommy, I like this song." Then I hear Meilynn say "Mommy, I like this song." and then of course Lily says, "Mommy, I like this song. I have to give the same response to each of them. I guess it is good practice for Lily to repeat what they are saying, but again it begins to get old fast.

Lily, being funny
I call this one "Hear no evil, see no evil, and speak no evil.
Emma loves to give me random hugs. Meilynn loves to tell me that she loves me more than........... and she will usually say Hello Kitty whom she loves more than anything, and Lily loves to come up and give me kisses and tells me that she loves me. I now right now that it may be out of insecurity or reassurance but I am loving all of the loving that I am getting. My cup runneth over.
