Dirt, Dogs & Underwear

Here's Sophia, on the dirt pile, in her underwear, hugging Diesel.

Climbing the dirt pile to play with Noah. Notice the 'Mongolian Spots' on her back? She's pretty well covered. Her tush is a dark blue! She has various spots on her legs, too. Do any of your girls have these spots?

Noah is looking for worms for fishing, Sophia is just digging.

Maggie, aka Maggie Moo Moo.
She likes to play on the dirt pile as much as the kids!

Diesel, aka Diesel Boy.
Diesel and Maggie play on the dirt piles a lot.
Maybe they're playing 'king of the mountain', I'm not sure.

Maggie lays in the grass and watches. Remember, she's NOT a rotweiler ... (did I spell that right?) They are both Cane Corso Italian Mastiffs. They are almost 4 months old.

Wonderful images as always :D

Yes, LiLi has the same kind of "spots" on her back. She has circulation issues that are related to her VM / PWS on her face. At least that is what the doc tells us. Never thought that other girls might have spots ~ got to go to Google :D

great post. Caitlyn love wearing just underwear, or better yet total nakyness :)
Yes, Caitlyn has a bluish green little hiney. A few light places on her back too. Chloe and Jacob's disapeared with age, but I don't know if Caitlyn will. Hers seem a bit more dominant.

Love those pics!!! Annslee has a big one on her lower back and did have one on her left arm (looked like a thumb print) but honestly, she hasn't been that pale since we have been home so I can't see it anymore. They are both documented at her pediatricians office of course and when she was in daycare...

Cute pics!
Lily would also love to just hang out in her underwear at ALL times.
She has some very faint marks on her back.

Cute doggy pics too. Looks like all the kiddos have a lot of fun together.

Yep! Avery has spots on her bottom and lower back. I've heard they fade with time, so we shall see.

Lisa said...

I love the photos! Ana Claire would love to play in her panties in the backyard all the time or in the buff. LOL
AC's bottom has blue spots all over her bottom and a couple on her back.

BEAUTIFUL PICTURES!! Sophia looks so gorgeous even in her underoos! What fun to let her play in the dirt like that... I need to take lessons from you in letting my Sophie get dirty before I turn her OCD!

My Sophie has mongolian spots too... and I have them documented at the pediatrician and the daycare. They seem to be fading a tiny bit and I have heard that they get much lighter around age 3!

Great photos! Hannah has some faint spots on her lower back and a larger, much darker spot on her bottom. They will fade over time. (Btw, your dogs are adorable!)

Mommy Spice said...

I totally remember running around my aunt's backyard in my undies! Total freedom. Can't do it anymore!

Donna Paonessa said...

My girls had the spots too, but they've disappeared now (they're 7 and 5) - your Sophia's will likely disappear eventually too - they're very common in young Asian children.

AWESOME pic's....and nice name you picked for your daughter!! **grin**

Ms. Dragonfly said...

LOVE these pictures. Precious.
Bravo!

Sam said...

Holy cow!!!! I can actually leave a comment!!!! Yippee!!!! I've been reading, but couldn't leave any comments.

Kieren has 2 small Mongolian spots. One on her shoulder and one on her butt-cheek. They are smaller than a dime each. We knew she would probably have some, as they are very common. We made sure to document them with our doctor immediately.

Love the pics!!!! Why aren't you out there in your undies???? If you were, where are the photos?

theghelertertwins.blogspot.com said...

Yep Katie and Abbey both have Mongolian spots at the base of their backs. We call them their future T.S. Tramp Stamps!(tats) We had doctor document it when we came home as we didn't want anyone to think we were beating the little angels. lol....

Lori said...
