What are you going to be when you grow up?
A grownup in a Spiderman costume… well a Spider Girl really (LOL!) and I want it to be my favorite color so on the box I want a picture that has the color yellow.

What are you going to do as a grownup?
Girl grownup stuff, like doing laundry and I’ll be able to clean the kitchen with you.

What’s that going to be like?
I don’t know… I’m not grown up enough, but I think I’ll do grownup stuff.

What are your favorite toys?
Elmo and my baby doll and the light brite and the mario teddy and the little people and the little people car and the toy daddy got me at the store.  Oh and Angry Bird toy!

Who are your best friends?
They’re invisible people.

Any visible best friends?
You (Mommy), Daddy, Titi Jackie, Annie, Brigid, Cristina, Titi Llova and my last best friend is Juliet.  I want to add Michael and Shannon!

What makes you happy?
Playing with everybody that lives in the house or in Lala’s house, or Titi Llova’s house and the last house where I play with people is Grandad’s.
Also, hugs and kisses, reading books, dancing, having a balloon, paying on your laptop, being at Disney World, and being silly and playing with bubbles.

Why does that make you happy?
Cause all those stuff is fun.

What makes you sad?
When you’re (Mommy) sad or angry, when things are not easy, when I can’t get what I want.  There is one more thing, when Daddy goes out of town or my friends get hurt.

When you dream at night, what do you dream about?
I dream about playing.

What do you like to do with Daddy?
Play fast and race, play Disney World and puppets.

Play tooth fairy and Disney World and learn new things.

The kitty litter, and eat and play with me and work.

Do chores and make food and play and do nice things and teach me new stuff.

What do you do during the day?
I play at the park and I do stuff that is fun.  I run fast, jump super high and pretend. (At this point our interview was interrupted when she said, "I need to go potty now, good bye!")  I work on worksheets and work books and do exercise.

Celeste had her first dance recital at Art in the Park today!  I didn’t always get the best angles as I was trying not to distract her or the other kids and stay out of the way of other parents.  And, as Murphy’s Law dictates, I lost battery of my Flip Cam halfway through Under the Sea. Also, keep in mind, the kids are three, don’t expect the Nutcracker Suite Smile with tongue out

Celeste, seven months old in the desk chair:

Celeste, three years, three months old in the same desk chair:


The girls looked eerily similar when they were newborns (although Celeste was much larger at birth than Jules was).  Now, though clearly sisters, Juliet has grown into her own features.

Celeste around seven and a half months old (wearing 12 month old clothes):

Juliet around the same age (wearing 6-9 month clothes):

I keep thinking that Juliet’s hair is longer than Celeste’s was at this age but seeing these pictures together, I see I was wrong.  Celly’s hair is clearly longer and starting to curl.

And, just because I love it, my girls side by side.  A pair of loving sisters:

The girl with kaleidoscope eyes


With her big sister stopped constantly and complimented on her eyes, everyone has been waiting with bated breath to see how Julie’s eyes will turn out.

She likes to keep us all guessing, it seems.  Her eyes are still seemingly the newborn grey that both the girls were born with but every time you look, there is some other color lurking in them.

All these pictures were taken on the same day, sometimes they look blue, sometimes green, sometimes grey and sometimes a light hazely brown.




It is always so much fun to watch these little ones change as they grow.  Five months old now and such a giggly and cuddly little girl.  She and Celeste only have eyes for each other and I often have to ask Celeste to let her sister sleep because, as she’s said in the past, “I miss her when she’s sleeping.”

They make it so easy to imagine having more!
