Somehow we went from summer to fall... I'm not a fan of fall.
I want some snack too, mom... hehe. This "little" girl is in the 99th percentile for weight and height. And she's very snuggly. Doctor B. thought it was hilarious that we can't use the bumbo seat because it cuts off her circulation in her legs...
Checking out the Farm and Fleet ad while waiting for supper... and eating a sucker. Happy little Emmy likes to be up where we are.
Cecily was raising her foot just like Emmy-geehl.
She likes to kick. And those keys.
The second day of "teaching school" (in Cecily-ese) went pretty well... hard for me to gauge since I haven't really seen any of their work yet, so I don't know if they are actually getting it. Little miss social likes to play with Megan and Ah-cus (Atticus... I'm guess it's from the book "To Kill a Mockingbird").
It was cold so we broke out the crayons while we were waiting to go to Shelly's house.
Michelle and Nathan hosted cousins night last Saturday. Cecily was pretty excited to go and eat hotdogs. I was excited to see their house all moved in and decorated. It's cute.
We decided to go to W-ton for church the next day... because I can't remember how long it's been since we had been there.
It's our turn to serve lunch at church in a few weeks so I've been trying to do a little bit of baking here and there. It keeps the house warm when it's so chilly.
So the Farm and Fleet grand re-opening sounded like fun and they had a cute kids play tent and sleeping bag set in their ad that would have been perfect for Cecily's birthday. Yeah. I did not realize that it was going to be such a crazy madhouse. So I took both girls in and pretty much made a loop and came back out. Not worth it. Haha... as I was coming in the door with Emmy in the stroller and Cecily in a cart, someone waiting in the looong check out line who looked very familiar (but I still can't place her- annoying mushy brain) and was obviously AC offered to watch Emmy while I shopped. Got to love it. I had already decided not to buy anything though...
All ready to go on "a jaunt." Poor girl gets called a boy a lot, but I don't want to put pink on her all the time, especially with her skin tone. And bows aren't worth the time I would spend putting them back on.
It was a stripes kind of day.
Thursday evening we went to Brent and Janelle's for potluck babysitting night. We managed to keep all 13 kids, plus the neighbor girl alive. Fun times.
The girls and I went to school this morning. I wore my periodic table shirt. We did our first lab... ok, so my high school chemistry teacher must have nerves of steel. Our first lab at EHS was bending and cutting glass- with open flames and teenagers with sharp objects. I just went over lab safety and had them do an ionic/ covalent conductivity activity and that was nerve wracking enough.
Why can't you eat and drink in lab? um... remember Willy? Willy was a chemist, but Willy is no more, what Willy thought was H2O was H2SO4!
Bob took off work so after lunch we took the girls to the zoo. Cecily was pretty excited. She told me, "Shelly found me Masha and Bear at the zoo going to my Birthday!" She had a great time looking at the animals. We found the tigers first and she just inserted herself into this group of kids... strangers... and told anyone we saw, "we're going to find the Lions!"
Emmy just chilled in the stroller.
Checking out the warthog.
She named off pretty much everything we saw on the way home... Daddy lion in the corner and the mommy lion on top of the rock and I saw a snake and the turtles and all the animals...
At some point she got a blister from her sandals so when we got home we put a princess band-aid on it. She's showing it to Emmy- "here's Belle, and 'Punzel, and Snow Pink." Ha! I died laughing.
She's decided to be very protective of her cute baby (from Ah-cus and the other kids at "my school") and she wanted to read her a book this evening. Green Eggs and Ham. From the girl who "I can't want squash" the spaghetti squash I made for supper but who would eat "dead cow" (steak) with plenty of BBQ sauce.
Anyway, that's what we've been up to. Nothing and everything all at once.
