I Scream, You Scream...

Stella had another delicious learning experience the other day when we both enjoyed ice cream for our lunchtime dessert....okay, okay, I enjoyed ice cream and Stella enjoyed nasty imitation ice cream (namely, soy cream), but she doesn't know the difference yet and she loved her treat. Here she is being studious with her very sticky flash card...And here she is stirring her yummy soy cream! Stella also heard that Grandpa and Grandmere were planning an exciting vacation, so she thought about stowing away in their luggage...One of Stella's latest accomplishments is saying, "Cheese!" for photos. While is it heart-wrenching due to the fact that she cannot actually enjoy this tasty dairy treat, it is also humorous because she makes a very cute but not very photogenic "Cheese Face." (See next photo for a sample.) Strangely enough, as a child I can remember making this exact face and frustrating my mother's photographic efforts. What makes a kid think that closing their eyes makes their smile bigger I don't know, but apparently it has seemed logical for at least 2 generations in this family.

oh my gosh...I think she looks just like Sadie and Rylie in the last two pictures!!! This is my first night away from them, and I am totally crushed and devastated. I wept for an hour. Going to Dallas for a wedding in the morning, and Nathan took them to Thibodaux for a softball tournament. Pray that I make it one more night...I can hardly wait until I see them Sunday!

What a precious cheese face!
Glad she gets to enjoy some sort of ice cream! Can she eat frozen yogurt?
