All Together Now: Awwwwwww....

First - thanks for all the props about the table! You know I love getting comments. Who knew that all it took was a craft project to shake Jeannie, a lurker to rival all lurkers, out of her tree? : )

Moving on...
January marked the 1st anniversary of our nannyshare arrangement, so I've been trying to get a picture of Steph and the kids ever since, considering how much Georgia and Harry have changed in that time. (Steph, you don't look a day older.)
Problem is, last year Georgia couldn't sit up at this time, and I think Harry was just commando crawling if anything, so they were a lot easier to capture on camera together. Not so easy this year. Here are the keeper shots, followed by a couple of outtakes, and a look back at last year.

(This is what their whole day looks like while we're gone, right? Good. I'm glad we all agree on that.)

Harry's on the move!
Not even "Big Joe", the pied piper of all children, can get everyone looking at the camera.

Big Joe is the nickname Harry spontaneously invented for Joe several months back. Then this Tuesday morning we woke up to the sound of Georgia calling, "Joe! Joe!" through the monitor. That evening I came home alone, since Joe got stuck at the office. I opened the back door to a veritable chorus of "Big Joe! Big Joe! Big Joe!" as Georgia had joined with Harry in calling out for him in excitement. Imagine their disappointment to find only me! I'm telling you, "chopped liver" would be an exaggeration, but to say that I'm coming in a distant second in these kids' eyes right now is no overstatement. Well, definitely Harry's anyway. I'm still holding out hope for Georgia. ; )

Those are some cute kids! I'm a little jealous of Stephanie's job!

Kate, I wouldn't feel bad. Harry barely even notices his own Mommy when Big Joe is in the room! (And at least Big Kate didn't take hold ;) ...Wow these pictures are great. I'm totally not biased, but these are some adorable children.
