10: Such big imaginations! | Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the things you can think up if only you try!
11: Picnic time!
12: What I called "learning time" was a big deal to me. You girls are so stinking smart and I never want you to lose your curiosity and your love of learning something new! I loved reading with you, working with flashcards, working on puzzles, going on walks to talk about all the things we saw, working on our ABCs and counting anything and everything. I'm so lucky to have been able to watch you grow so much!
13: Discover | ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ | The more you read, the more things you know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go! Reading was something we did every day! You girls had your favorite stories: Phoebe, you loved Olivia books and Fiona loved Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (unless of course there happened to be a horsey book lying around!)
14: You loved to play outside!
15: From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.
16: And your FAVORITE thing to do outside was to play in the pool! | SPLASH!

19: Maybe Ona go pick flowers! | Almost every day you both would go pick a flower that we'd put in a vase on the table!
20: You loved your Chip!
21: Waving goodbye as Chip drives to work! | So Sweet! | Chip was so great with you girls. You loved spending time with him, coloring with him and watching Yo Gabba Gabba together!

23: October 8, 2010 This was one of our favorite morning trips! Happy 2nd birthday Phoebe!

32: Beautiful Fiona
34: My sweet Fiona...where do I begin? I have loved every second with you! I remember when you first came to La Petite, how small you were (you weren't even walking yet!) and how quiet you were. It's almost hard to believe, looking at you now. You are so incredibly special, Fiona. Don't ever doubt that. You make me laugh and smile every day with your sweet voice, your laugh. I love to hear your stories, to hear you reason things out. I will never forget your sweet hugs and kisses. "Love you sooooo much!"
36: Sweet Phoebe | Sassy but...
38: Sweet, sassy Phoebe :) You were just a squishy ball of adorable when I first started watching you and Fiona at the house. And now you're having conversations with me! You have been a constant source of joy in my life. You are such a strong, unique and funny little girl. I will never forget all of the fun times we shared, all of the wonderful milestones I got to witness in your life and how you made me melt every time you said my name. I love you sassa-frass-Phoebe!
40: To Glenn and Michelle,
41: I wonder if there are really any words to tell you both what you and the girls mean to me. None of them seem big enough. I have loved every second that you have let me be a part of your lives. I cherish every memory, all the love and all the happiness you have given me. My heart breaks now that the four of you are gone but I am so happy for this opportunity for you all! I love you and already miss you terribly so please, please don't forget to call! Give the girls lots of hugs and kisses from me and Chip and I hope I'll see you SOON! All my love, Geri
