We got 11.5 inches of snow this weekend. It was AWESOME. Two big snowstorms in one year... it's like heaven. :) The first day was entirely too cold for me to go out and play, so instead...
... Daddy and I baked. :) We made one big cake and a bunch of little cakes.
E to the G here. Mommy is getting mighty creative with these concoctions she's been feeding me. She's been giving me some fruits more and more now that I can down the veggies with ease. I'm a huge fan of applesauce, bananas, peaches, pears, mangoes, and now BLUEBERRIES... mmmm.
Mommy and I started our art class again last Thursday. This session is GREAT because Ms. Carol already knows me and my antics first of all, and second of all... there are only 3 KIDS in my class this time! Apparently there are 9 in the Tuesday session, but we're just fine with the smaller class. There is even another little baby in the class, so Emma Grace won't feel so left out. :) Our first project was this adorable snowman... Ms. Carol must have known I'm currently IN LOVE with snowmen! The only thing Mommy helped me with was putting the glue on... I'm getting good. Well, minus the whole nose being in the middle of the snowman's chest, and his buttons being down near his feet. :)
We also made this really cool snowflake magnet! I love it! Sadly we don't have art class this week because Ms. Carol will be in a meeting, but we'll be making it up later. I think I'm really going to enjoy class this go round!

Here's what we've been up to the last week... in no particular order. :) Emma Grace is learning to use a sippy cup, and around here we use "learning to use a sippy cup" very loosely. The girl just gnaws on the nipple, but she looks darn cute doing it.

Rachel here. My Emma Grace started saying "mamamamamama" today. :) I know it means nothing, but add that to the "gagagagagagaga", and we're well on our way to "Mommy watch this!"
Meanwhile Reese tried to bounce down the stairs on her giant cow... needless to say my heart skipped many beats.
Both of my girls totally lose it if I a)leave the room (Emma Grace), or b)leave the house (Reese)... this makes me both smile because I know I'm loved and cringe because I can get NOTHING done around here. :)
Three random thoughts? Perhaps, but today's recollections nonetheless. :) Happy Hump Day!

Mushy mushy mushy! Rachel here. My wee one is 7 months old today. :) Isn't she sweet?
Emma Grace is the smiliest little thing! She's still so cool and calm. She's still a great sleeper, and the kid loves to eat. Besides nursing every two hours (during the day)... STILL... she's also dabbling in most veggies. She loves green beans, peas, carrots, sweet potatoes, winter squash (she's only had that out of the jar), and she loves applesauce. We've also tried avocado, and I literally thought she was going to die. She gave me this look of sheer disgust. We'll be trying it again though tomorrow. :) I also picked up some pears, and peaches from the g-store the other day, so we'll whip some of those up for her too. I hope this means she'll be as good of an eater as Reese!
Rachel here. Reese decided she wanted to play dress up today. Grandma bought her a bunch of Halloween costumes when they went on uber sale after the holiday, so she has some really sweet little outfits she can play with. Now those of you that know Reese, in this picture she's spinning around in circles... hence her eyes facing bottom left. :)
She quickly changed her mind and went from the whimsical fairy to Alice.
