Lap and Lasts | Mommy and Me Monday | 254th ed


Exactly 52 weeks ago, B made her very first Mommy and Me Monday appearance. Almost one year later, and she’s fitting in with her sisters, vying for a place on my lap while reading a book. (That’s a sneaky daddy…I didn’t even know he took this until he sent it to me later!) E brought the book over, and everybody else started coming over.

Reading with my four girls

And because I’m an emotional wreck that my baby is turning one, a last lap shot as an 11 month old. I miss that she doesn’t want to snuggle already and tries to get away from my bedtime songs.

Last night as an 11 month old

Full birthday post to come later, but I had to document the last day as an 11 month old. And, now I go cry!


It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies. If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link. It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.*
