Hostess Cupcake

Credits go to Jon B. for the photo, and Sara B. for knitting the hat . . . what a team!


No scurvy here!

Gilly kept bugging me to let her have a bite of my lime. I think she found it a bit sour.

(No, she isn't wearing any pants. We often find her in various states of undress. Welcome to the Schmucker nudist colony.)

Last night just after dinner, Gilly started making some gagging sounds.

Me: "Gilly, are you ok?"

Gilly: more gagging sounds (obviously breathing though, so she wasn't choking)

Me: "Gilly, are you ok?"

Gilly: a little burp, some chewing

Me: "Gilly?"

Gilly: "yummy yummy!"

Two Years Old

Gilly turned two on Saturday. Grammy Suzi took us to the Lancaster Fair on Saturday morning. We didn't stick around to hear the Oak Ridge Boys, but Gilly enjoyed seeing all the animals. It was hard to tell which animals were her favorite, but she seemed very fond of the miniature Zebu bull, and had fun sharing some grain with a baby goat. Pops was showing some of his pictures too, so we stopped and visited for a little while.

After that we went to Grammy Kathy's for pizza (she loooves pizza) and birthday cake (and who doesn't like chocolate cake!?).

Here is a short clip of Gilly and her cake.

She was a very tired little girl at the end of the day!
