Last night at church, we had our Christmas cantata (I am in choir and DH ran the sound), so Scout stayed with one of the older ladies in the nursery. I was nervous that she would get upset because she is not fond of being away from mommy and daddy, but after the performance, I poked my head in there and the lady said "Sshhh! Don't let her see you - look! She's playing so good with the other babies and is having a great time and hasn't even cried once. You go enjoy yourself and I'll stay in here with her." I took her up on it, since Scout was having such a good time. It was SOOOO nice to just sit and relax and drink hot chocolate and talk to people after church!
That was so awesome!

And Sophia did a few firsts this weekend.

First the bad: she bit me! She was tired and the milk was flowing yet so she was a bit upset! I can't believe how much it hurt all day! It's a bit better this morning. None of the others bit me!

She said "mamamama" rather loudly while we were at a funeral this weekend (my friend's mom passed away). The little old ladies there all smiled.

And I found out what motivates the child: the remote. She cruised on the couch this weekend trying to get that remote!

what are you feeding your little ones


I'm so cautious with feeding Sophia anything because of Claire's allergies. Sophia reacts to eggs with eczema so I know the tendancy is there.

Right now she pretty much eats rice puffs and pears. She had a bit of squash, but then Claire finished it off before I could feed the rest to S.

The problem also is that DH and I are horrible cooks. That's the one thing that I would change in DH. I wish the boy could cook!

I really should be working.

Next year I need to remember to take some time off before Christmas. I have to work the weekend before so it's pointless to take any time off now. I'm going to be off the 28-1.

I snooped.

So as not to get a uv violation I won't discuss anything personal.


Teeth and IUD's. That was the big stuff.

Sophia still has 2 bottom teeth. Fortunately, that is all.

I don't know what to do about bc. DH has been sick, so that has helped for the past week!

Micah still has no teeth, but I have caught him "biting" me a couple of times....usually it is when he is almost asleep, but it still hurts!! I know his gums are bothering him, but what happens when the teeth do come in? OUCH!!

He is also getting better at cruising....not really fast, but more coordinated. There hasn't been anymore climbing though, so that is good.

Christmas gifts: Micah is getting an activity cube from my mom (one of those with the wooden pegs on the sides and the wooden beads on the top). I got him a ball, some board books, a dump truck, and a couple of lights and sounds and plastic toys that are frowned upon around here. :

When Scout was playing in the church nursery last night, she was LOVING all the cheap plastic toys with buttons and lights and music and such. It was so cute - she would take her little index finger and push the "1" button on this toy phone to hear it beep and watch the screen light up over and over again. It made me feel bad that she doesn't have anything as exciting to play with at home. :

yea! I'm not the only one doing this! I have a push toy that I'm going to stick a bow to and call that a gift. Only Claire has used it, so it isn't that much of a hand me down
