All-Girl Weekend

It was great to catch up with our dear friend Andrea - it's been three years! After two days in San Francisco, we felt like we had transported time and nothing had changed... except for the fact that Jemma was now in the picture!


Jemma and Andrea had a swell time together tooling around the Bay Area. By the end of the trip, they were thick as thieves.

Trouble Over Bridged Water

This picture doesn't depict the wonderful weekend Jemma and Mommy spent up in San Francisco with Mommy's dear friend, Andrea. A little Ben & Jerry's lowfat frozen yogurt soothed the tears and the palate very quickly.

Goggles the Mind

The love affair with water deepens - now it's time to see what it's really made of. Notice the "sad" face in the mirror? Jemma likes to act and has a repertoire of emotions, though it's hard for her not to giggle while pretending to be "sad." We think it's pretty funny, too!

Plum Crazy!

The summer stone fruits have played well with Jemma - especially plums - and this year, they are incredibly sweet and delicious. It's a joy to watch her devour them down - this series of photos, spanning 4 different plum-eating sessions, can't quite capture the delight and satisfaction but we're here to tell you, it's a highlight for us. Her favorite part is finding the pit, at which point she exclaims, "I found the pit!" She knows the difference between pits and seeds and is fascinated with both. She especially likes to acknowlegde the seeds she can eat, like in kiwis - "I can eat these seeds!" - and remind us of the pits and seeds she can't eat. Perhaps she'll be a gardener one day...

Cup Hats!

What's in a cup hat? Why, adorable little girls, of course!

Sydney & Emma Swim Date #1

Jemma learned a few tricks from her twin friends, Sydney & Emma - using floatation devices, for one, and swimming in the buff for another!
