You see, the night before I had gotten ready for my first full day of taking care of the girls. With E at 2 1/2 and L at almost 8 months, I needed to get the baby gear in place. It tickled me to be taking out all of my favorite toys that have given the boys hours of entertainment.
In particular the supersaucer was one of Nolan's favorites. As a baby he used to get up at 5 am and play to his heart's content and be ready for his first nap at 7. I had a hard time adjusting to that little turkey's schedule. He now sleeps in, almost always til 7, yep, I said 7 and that is sleeping in for him.
So when I heard the music begin to play from the supersaucer I should have known who I would find in the living room playing with it. The music woke Colton up as well and he soon joined in setting up the dishes and pretend food for the little kitchen.
I had to drag them away to get them ready for school.
Soon the girls arrived. L was full of smiles and has the biggest blue eyes. I was told she was a good eater and she didn't disappoint. I can hardly tell you how rewarding it is to put a spoonful of food in a baby's mouth and not be told the food is icky, stinky or not what they wanted... so rewarding.
And Miss E has quite the personality! She cooked and baked, played with Diego and went down the BIG curvy slide at the park. But I think her voice and the things she says might be my favorite things so far. As predicted she wasn't fond of leaving the park when I told her we needed to. Finally she said, "Okay, but I am grumpy about it!" The she took my hand and off we went. I thought, wow, think she can teach the boys a thing or two about behaving even when you aren't happy about it?
