For the Next Baby, I'm Stocking Up on These!

Have you heard of Podee Bottles?  I just found out about them, and I so wished I had them when my girls were babies.  Not for the everyday feedings, but for car trips, and grocery trips, and those times when they suddenly decided they were hungry right as I'm at a crucial moment in making dinner.  Better believe I'm going to have a couple of these on hand for the next baby!

Recent Readings

Last week we started listening to Charlotte's Web in the car.  When I first started it, both girls hated it. They would cry and moan when they heard the author start reading.  It was pathetic.  But after a couple days they started to enjoy it and have since started quoting it around the house (including a random reference to goslings).  

I have a favorite quote as well (spoken by John Arable): "Fern was up at daylight trying to rid the world of injustice.  As a result she now has a pig.  Just shows what can happen if a person gets out of bed promptly."  

Love it.

Could Be a Long Search ...

CJ was looking through one of my children's clothing catalogs and she said, "I just can't find it!" When I asked her what she was looking for she said, "A dictionary dress.  It's a beautiful dress with lots of colors."

That sweet girl is on a long search ...

At least she tried!

I asked Verity to get the paci for me that was right behind her.  First attempt, she brought me a squeaky giraffe toy.  Second attempt, a blanket.  Third - some plastic rings.  Fourth - another toy.  Fifth - a sock.  Sixth - a toy car.  And seventh - the paci.

She was honestly making an effort.  And it was a good thing that Gillian wasn't in a hurry.
