A quick field trip to Cabela's with Davis and Elizabeth yielded a happy lesson on sharing goldfish crackers and Froot Loops. Lynlee even drank a bottle while she was in her wrap, while I was pushing Ellie in the stroller. It was quite a feat - and makes me even more motivated to buy a double stroller. Tonight, if possible!

Friday night, Jonette, Kylene, Kiera and I were quickly picking up a few last minute items for their trip to Mexico. Whilst in Target, I ran over to the kids shoes to see if I could find some white shoes or sandals for Ellie. There was a family in the aisle, with the cart parked square in the middle and about 20 kids swarming around (OK, maybe 4). I saw an opening to get past them, I hurtled past, and I whacked my arm on a shoe display shelf. Who knew that it stuck out so far into the aisle?

The girls and I enjoyed Cafe Rio for lunch today. For the first time ever, I ordered a kid quesadilla. That felt like a rite of passage or something.
Ellie was not interested in it, but she ate tons of chips and salsa. She loves to dip! She liked the pico de gallo so much that she drank all of the juice out of it. That is great vegetables!
P.S. We are already successfully transitioned from the binkies. Less than 2 days of crying = easier than I thought it would be!

Can I say, pipe dream?
The last 4 times she has gone to bed, she has cried. And cried. And cried. It is much different going to sleep without the comfort of your binkie! We are seeing improvement, though. She cried for 40 minutes at 5 a.m., and then 30 minutes for her nap, and then 30 minutes for bed that night. Hopefully she will cry less and less as she gets used to this...

Ellie was a little concerned that I was going to put her sister in HER Bumbo today. But since she is a sweet girl, she was willing to share; as long as I acknowledged that it was Ellie's chair. Lynlee holds her head up so well, she is really strong! While Lynlee and I were exploring the Bumbo, Ellie grabbed the remote control and was having a grand old time pushing all of the buttons. She even got the input changed from the Wii (with streaming Netflix and her favorite Barney episodes) to the satellite.

Lynlee took a good nap on my lap (as long as her ears were covered she was totally fine). Ellie loved taking walks with Daddy. We were on our own row of seats at one point, and Ellie was walking up and down. She would get to the end of the row and look back and us and laugh, and then play with the seats and wander some more.
It only took us an hour each way, and Ellie had fun in the car. As a treat, I put in the DVD player and let her watch a Barney episode. Super fun!

Because of the picture I posted back in October about helping my mom with a class she was doing on 72-hour kits, I got asked to do a class for my ward. It was fun, because all of the ladies are so fun! Lots of good ideas were shared. If anyone wants a copy of my handouts, email me or leave a comment with your email address.

I love these kids! We have so much fun together. Ellie and Lynlee love to play at Aunt Jo's house while I teach. Jo said that Lynlee noticed, for the first time, that mom wasn't with her. She is almost 4 months old, and that is when Ellie started having "stranger anxiety" as well. Our pediatrician says that smart babies notice "strangers" early. These girls are so smart, thanks to their birth moms!

Davis has been sick this week, so the girls and I have been entertaining ourselves. I decided it was time to try story time at the library again, and we got there all excited. Nothing was happening, so I checked the bulletin board. There was a poster saying that the winter session of story time ended February 28 and spring session starts March 14.
Well, now we know.
