About Me

My photo
Our family consists of Paul/Daddy. He loves his little girls, wife and family more than anything in the world. Velvet (aka MaMa Velvet or Mommy). I'm a photographer and very happy stay at home Mom who can't get enough time with my little ones! Lily (aka Monster or Princess). She's our 12 year old smart, talkative, beautiful young woman who is impressing us everyday! Addison (aka Doo or Addi). She's 9, artistic, sensitive, lovely young lady who has a quick sense of humor! Scarlett or Bo for short! She's 7, sassy, outgoing, cute as a button and has a passion for a few very select food groups! Finally we have our littlest princess, who has blessed us with her presence until it's time to go home. She's 1 and the happiest little baby around! She loves clapping, snuggling, shaking her head no, and laughing at her sisters! She's incredibly smart and uses sign language to communicate most of her needs until she learns to use her big girl words. We are loving on her with every ounce of our being!

Scrub a Dub Dub

Lily and Addison end up taking baths together all the time.  It's not because I force them to, au contraire.

I attempt to bathe them seperately most of the time, but as soon as they hear the water running I've got two naked children standing infront of me demanding bubbles, water and splashing.

It's pretty amusing.

They're both pretty content in the bath.

Addison with her favorite bath toy shoved as far into her mouth as possible.

Lily hoarding the rest of the bath toys.

Recently, they've started being interested in the actual bath process though.

Addison really loves to play with Lily's hair and get it all soapy.

Lily's really wonderful about the whole thing as well.  Addison isn't always the most gentle shampooer.

I'm pretty sure Addison hit her at least 8 times in this process.

Once Addison's done mauling her sister she starts to run her fingers through her own hair.

Lily asks her if she's ready.

"Are you ready chunky butt?!"

"Are you ready Boo Boo Bear?!"

"Are you ready Chunky Monkey Boo Boo Bear?!"

"Are you ready Chunkey Booby Monkey Wunky Boo Bear Butt?!"

Hey, I'm just being honest in the name calling.

Lily does a decent job of staying on her head with the soap.

Every once in a great while I have to remind her that the soap doesn't go on Addison's face.

Then Lily gently reminds me that it's "Tear free Momma Velvet!"

At that point she purposely puts her hand on my eyeball.

After I wipe my face clean Lily fills up the play cup and attacks her sisters soapy head.

After she's done she very carefully wipes Addison's face clean and makes sure she doesn't have any water left in her eyes.

She's so wonderful with her when she feels like it.

Then she has to go and show me how big she's really gotten and wash her own hair!

I love them so much :)
