My Baby

Annie loves babies.  It's the only thing she has really clung on to (besides her pink kitty and her blanket).  She doesn't play with any toys in particular for any length of time, but she loves it if I pretend that she's my baby.

She comes up to me and says, "Mom, pretend I'm your baby and that I'm crying."  Then she'll lay down with her pink fluffy pillow and her purple blanket and fuss until I give her her sippy cup (bottle), or a baby toy to play with.

The only problem is that her "baby" cry is the same as when she is whining to me when she's not pretending.  Almost instantly the game gives me anxiety because of the sound of the baby cry, but I keep it up because she loves it so.

When baby Jack comes over to play, she loves to climb inside his car seat.  You see, it's even easier to pretend like she's a baby when she is in a baby seat!  Yesterday was no different, but she spent a little more time in there than usual because this happened:
Oh Annie.  You are my baby.  You don't even need to pretend.

What a cutie. I play that same game with Henry, though it's usually my idea not his.

I love it when kids fall asleep. Annie is darling. And you're totally right running isn't cheap at all- but its so worth it, even if I trot compared to you. :) I love that you're such an amazing runner. I hope you get all healed up soon! Good luck on the strength training.

That is about the best picture ever. I love when they settle down and go to sleep in random places. Hannah is still my baby!
