The other day while I had my camera out and was snapping a few pics of Simba I heard Nemo yell from the other room, "Take pictures!" and she came running out to see what was happening. She must have heard the click of my shutter and recognizes that this means it's time to pose for the camera. I know I have my camera out a lot but gees! So she was delighted when her dad suggested she hold Simba for some pictures. I was equally delighted that she was distracted by holding the baby that she left her headband in for the pics. Of course when we were done she promptly removed it.
She is becoming quite the big sister who pays attention to what Simba needs, whether that be eating, sleeping or a burp cloth. Often she will bring some toy to Simba and say "Show Simba??" It's very sweet. And though it may look like she is torturing her sister in some of these pics, I assure you she was being very gentle and not holding her too tight.

For Nemo's 2nd birthday MSD and I dreamed up a play kitchen. We weren't thrilled by the mostly plastic options out there. They are fine but usually pretty big for our small house and this kitchen lives in our living room so I wanted to like looking at it. Thus we turned to Ana White, the amazing builder! She has easy plans for a play kitchen and I emphasize EASY since MSD and I are totally inept when it comes to building things. We have way to many educational degrees between the two of us to be any good with wood projects! But we had fun and we both really like it.
I was determined after I saw the plans to make a kitchen for Nemo and eventually Simba to share as well. And this is what we came up with. We are pretty happy with it, though it's far from perfect and not even close to square!
