Boobies and the Posts of the Week

Blogger is doing some really strange formatting, these days. I have no idea why these white blocks appear in the body of the post but I hope you can work your way around them.

My neighbour's little two year-old daughter, Lily is a delicious little munchkin. Her language skills are beginning to accelerate but her pronunciation is still lacking just a wee bit.

When Lily and her mom were visiting last month, she wandered into my kitchen and started shouting excitedly to her mom.
"Boobies, Mommy... BOOBIES. Pwees, boobies?"

She'd long been weaned and has never asked to be nursed since then, so we were all kind of perplexed. We headed into the kitchen. There was Lily - my fridge door was wide open and her little finger was pointing at a small package of

She just loves her blueberries.

Now isn't this face more delicious than any ole blueberry?

And now, without further delay, here are the Posts of the Week. The icon below is yours for the taking if if your blog post is named as a POTW.

Awww. Bless her wee heart. The pictures are beautiful. Are you going to give her mom copies? What a nice gift that would make.

We just love kids, and this little cutie is no acception Hilary - Dave

Anonymous said...

Hilarious! The point where the child's mother goes cold... "Say what?" And then the relief when she realises it's all alright...

Sueann said...

Oh my! How adorable! And such beautiful photographs!!

Andy said...

I'm just a amateur when comes to this. It's all in the HTML and the or CSS coding. Something is different in these white blocks. I don't know how you add your links to your blog but sometimes, when you copy and paste text from MS Word or any other rich text editors you also copy "rogue coding" that may override the CSS in your template. Suggest you try a plain text editor such as Notepad.

Pauline said...

aha! more wonderful blogs to investigate and a sweet lille face to admire - thanks, Hilary :)

I love her cheeeks and her sweet hands

She Who Carries Camera said... adorable!!

Mimi said...

That last photo is just amazing! If I were Lily's Mom, I'd blow that up on canvas.
Blogger seems to have a mind of its own!

DJan said...

She is definitely adorable. And I do wonder about those weird white blocks, but Blogger has definitely been acting strangely for a while now. Great pictures, and I'll check out those posts I haven't gotten to yet. :-)

Gary's third pottery blog said...

OH! Adorbs!

Anvilcloud said...

Lovely light and portraits, but that first word almost set an old man's heart to racing. ;)

Elizabeth Grimes said...

LOL! That's a hilarious story. :)

Karen (formerly kcinnova) said...

I like to have boobies in my oatmeal, and I'd love to have Lily as my neighbor.

Hooray for the POTW! Looking forward to reading your wonderful finds.

Bob Bushell said...

Boobies is in our country is a form of female breast, that's what she is holding, lol. Beautiful is different, that is the baby girl, and you made it photogenic.

Out on the prairie said...

messymimi said...

And here i was ready to look at pics of blue-footed boobies (the birds). They are pretty birds, but these pics are more beautiful.;)

yaya said...

She's adorable and so is that story! Thankfully she found the real "boobies" that she wanted, I would hate to think what could have happened next!

Red said...

Children's pronunciation has influenced all kinds of weird words. My brother was always called Merce because his big brother ""me could say Myrven.

photowannabe said...

Just love the photos of that precious little face.
Boobies are yummy in any language..I guess that doesn't sound politically correct, does it?

Kerri Farley said...

How sweet!

Steve Gravano said...

What a cutie!

Gillian Olson said...

LadyFi said...

Thank you for the honour of being a recipient of POTW, Hilary. Truly appreciated!

I'll never be able to look at blue berries the same way. Precious little one.

Anyes said...

What an adorable little face, she knows how to eat them blueberries ;-)

Thank you so much for the POTW Hilary, it is a great honour to have made it on your beautiful blog.


Zuzana said...

Children are so difficult to capture, but you always do a great job.;)
I see now white blocks in your post, but I have trouble with verification words on other blogs; I simply cannot read them, hihi.;)
Have a great rest of the week Hilary,

Unknown said...

Well, wouldja look at that?

I got one!

Hey, Hilary, if my pain brings someone else a laugh, then it's worth it all.

DANG: peeling that stuff off my face hurt!!!!

Unknown said...

And Oh, my goodness is that baby ADORABLE or what???

Please pass the boobies!!!

(I've been wanting to say that for YEARS. To God. Who might have shortchanged me just a wee bit. Just TWO wee bits. Heh heh.)

Barbara said...

So cute! And congrats to the POTW!

Deborah said...

That's just lovely, I always used to love when my daughter said things 'differently', we still say the things she said to this day!

... and thank you so much Hillary for having me as one of your potw :o) x

CiCi said...

Hi Hilary, the blueberries are even more delicious for young taste buds! I made some buckwheat pancakes this week and added fresh blueberries. When I bit into one a plump juicy blueberry burst and juice stained my new sweatshirt and splattered the screen in front of me. Yikes.

Thank you for the mention in the list of POTW.

Lynne with an e said...

Thanks for the smile about the boobies and for the POTW. Been absent from Blogland for a bit so it was a very nice surprise to find the award waiting for me on my fog-filled doorstep.

Unknown said...

Always amazing choices for me to check out new bloggers--new to me ay least. Thanks Hilary!

lime said...
