Our First Day of Summer

Monday marked our first official day of summer. What better way to celebrate than by hitting the pool and hanging with friends? After a lazy morning at home, and a great afternoon nap during which Mommy watched the LOST finale and sobbed (I love you, too, Jack!), Stella made her way to the Millet's backyard oasis... While on the other side of the neighborhood, we picked up a couple of extra kids. Hey, it's lonely being an only child! Back at our house, Stella terrorized poor Cohen by desiring way too much togetherness for a little boy. Here she is trying to force him to hold her hand...
Here is sweet Molly, happy as a pig in mud to be rocking a kitty cat in Stella's chair, and Cohen, trying to remember his mom's number so he can escape from Stella...
Stella, again with the affection for Cohen. This time it was an unwanted hug...
Snack time! Jello for EVERYBODY!

In spite of his early resistance, Cohen did offer to kiss Stella and hold her hand later in the visit. By that time, she was inconsolable and not interested in his offer. Poor kid, his lot in life is to be surrounded by beautiful, if somewhat moody, girls. I bet he's already praying for a brother.

I love it! I'm so happy to see you posting pictures of Stella going after Cohen...see it's not all him! The tractor incident was partly her too! haha!!
