beware. i just might post every video i haven’t posted. meaning, catch up. i have lots of random cell phone videos. but they are always too big to upload through wordpress. i used to have the free vimeo account which had a weekly limit of about 1-2 videos and i never managed to remember to upload 2 videos a week. nope. i need to be able to mass upload 10 or 20. soooooo i subscribed instead and plan on seriously uploading videos.

 

on that note, this video is only from yesterday. we are kind of into really into a new christmas cd i got from my brother andrew and his wifey, casey-princess (addy’s nickname for her thank you very much). they (addy and mercy) are obsessed with the santa medley. obsessed. no matter what is going on, mercy starts dancing and addy starts singing. addy got it into her head that i should record their performance. mercy almost refused to dance for the camera (her usual m.o.) but actually started dancing. if you are wondering what the heck addy is doing, look and listen carefully. she likes to sing along with the high part so she is plugging her ears so that she can hear herself sing. um hello? does that make her a natural because i didn’t prompt her or anything. don’t mind the seriousness. they were concentrating very hard on their performance. also, ignore mercy’s gangsta booty. it’s not my fault jeans were not designed for my no-booty kid.

 

 

oh and here is the song they are obsessed with:

 

merry christmas!

my monsters.

i found this blog post and wanted to re-post it. kind of cool to read posts from a year ago. i’m also thinking about doing some sort of days of christmas “series” but i’m not quite sure the extent. maybe i am attempting too much, ha!

 

as we transition into the christmas swing of things, i thought these pictures might bring a little enjoyment. i call them goofball one and goofball two. maybe i should call them thing one and thing two. long ago in a galaxy not far away and before mercy was born, we had three other little girls and these monster towels from burbank ikea. so you can imagine my excitement when i found them at the bucharest ikea, asking me to buy them.

 

and this present is a little pre-christmas gift auntie cacey left for us. tomorrow we are going in search of our christmas tree. yay! i can’t wait, errrr, i mean the girls can’t wait!

 

anywho and whatnot…enjoy!

 

flashback mercy

sarah reminded me that we never really did anything with these pictures. we haven’t even touched them up, but i think they look really good just the way they are. this was the funnest (??) photo shoot i have done with sarah and now i realize we are a great team. i have tried taking mercy’s eight month and nine month photos on my own and oh. my. goodness. impossible? maybe. mercy’s next few months (years?) of her life might be documented in blurs of motion. i’m not joking. i don’t understand how something so little can move so fast.

on that note, here she is in all her six month adorableness. when climbing out of a metal bucket took time. when crawling was a little slow and methodical. when she sat still. those were the days of easy picture taking. 🙂

p.s. she is nine months tomorrow. how is that possible?
