EXCEPT That...

Today is my sister's birthday. And since I didn't have the foresight to get online and order her a gift in time FOR her actual birthday, I figured I'd better give her a shout-out. She's still the best thing I ever got for my birthday, and I love her more than the world. She's brilliant, compassionate, impassioned, empathetic, beautiful, and a big ol' sentimental mush-pot, just like me. If she's reading this, she's probably already getting ready to cry. Pictured here, with MY baby:
Bella and her Aunt

Happy Birthday, Andrea. Thanks for my nephew, too.SmugTakedown!Gotcha

  1. Great pictures. And regarding your later post, I feel the same about the skinny pant conspiracy.

  5. I like the photos, especially the one with laundry everywhere. I thought I was the only one living the laundry nightmare!

  6. Sisters are the best. Which is why I sometimes think I should have ONE MORE kid, to try to give G-Unit a sister. But... NO. (Seriously, I get sad when I think that she'll grow up without a sister.)

    That last picture? Is BEAUTIFUL.

    YOU'RE DA BEST!! I didn't get to see this until tonight. I love you love you love you, and especially appreciate you allowing everyone to see photographic evidence of the ever-present carpet of LAUNDRY on my living room floor. No, really I just placed those items temporarily on the floor to give Bella and G-man a cushioned area on which to play WWF.

    Man, do I take purty pictures of those kids, or what??
