when she was bored with an afternoon of crawling, she decided cruising furniture was next on her list.
still, with these hugely important accomplishments, NO TEETH! not a tooth in her head! reagan had teeth at 4 months. i am beginning to worry that no teeth are ever going to come. it's my punishment for pouring water in my brother's bed and trying to convince everyone david had a bed-wetting problem. it was really funny at the time, but was it worth this? she will be the only kid in kindergarten with dentures. i will have to buy polident for my child before i need to buy it for me. until now my greatest tooth phobia was me losing my teeth while biting into a whether's original hard candy or as the result of a freak roller coaster accident(it could happen). but no, having a child with no teeth is worse. definitely worse. how can i be a stage mother and shamelessly promote my child/model/cash cow to support my wicked shoe habit if all she has to show the casting director is a mouth full of gums. gummy o'hara doesn't work for me. they are beautiful gums, but gums don't pay the light bill.
we took a day trip to adam-ondi-ahman and jamesport. pretty drive, but we would never want to have our car break down out there. we would be stranded for days in little towns that time forgot. sort of like swiss family robinson, but swiss family simpson. we certainly would have our pick of the finest amish furniture around, but i don't think the amish would have appreciated me turning my nose up at their outhouses. seriously, there wasn't a mcdonald's for miles...like 20. and they have mcdonald's pretty much everywhere. third world countries have mcdonald's, jamesport, mo does not. we were able to eat at a fantastic amish restaurant. home cooked vittles just like granny never made. plus, check out the classy shopping options.
anywhooo, the weather was so fantastic this weekend, i had to take a picture of our house with the trees in full bloom. the pink tree next to the porch is a flowering dogwood, state tree of missouri. who says you never learn anything from me? we also have some flowers growing that the neighbor claims are called "naked ladies". i will definitely be replanting those next year. naked ladies every spring!
