#1. Baby Anna playing in Baby C's exersaucer:) Eliana got her all situated so she could play!
#2. Eliana talking on her calculator phone to Mugga. She kept saying, "I need to ask you a question, Mugga." :)
#3. I was Mystery Reader in Samuel's class on Friday and the baby came with me. He was a HUGE hit with Samuel's class! Samuel was so surprised and really happy! I read the first chapter of "Mrs Piggle Wiggle," which is such a cute book.
#4. Eliana suckered her Daddy into doing his first ever toenail painting!
#5. Zakkai is crazy about the new rubber band bracelet making that is all the rage here! We don't have a kit but he was trying to figure out a way to braid them himself!
#6. Showing off her "pretty red" toes!
#7. We took our last ever pictures of Eliana in her crib!
She was posing for us;)
Cheese! It was really sad to take down our crib after 8 years of using it! But we haven't dwelled on it too much because Miss E is SOOO happy about her "new" big girl bed!
#8. The bed! I found it at a garage sale and a pair of sheets on clearance at Target. She is really hoping for Dora sheets so I'm keeping a lookout!
#9. We could hardly tear Eliana away from her bed to get her to eat dinner! We got a little rail to stop her from rolling out the way her big brother did so many times!
#10. Sleeping so peacefully last night! She did GREAT! She fell right to sleep and slept all night and didn't even climb out this morning. We'll see how long that lasts:) She has a little opening at the top to climb in/out and a little stool. She is crazy about being independent these days so she loves the idea of getting in and out of her bed herself!
When asked this morning how she liked sleeping in her "new" bed, she said, "It is so comfortable!" haha:)
This week was Fire Prevention Week and the boys had the fire department visit the school and tell them all about fire safety. Today they had an open house at the local fire station to raise money and teach the families about fire safety. We went for a bit this afternoon because the boys were so excited to go!
They had little fire hats to give out, coloring, face painting, demonstration and even fire truck rides. That was pretty cool! We had to wait in a long line but everyone loved it. I'm sure the neighbors were tired of hearing the sirens for 4 hours as they looped around the block over and over!
We met the nicest firemen, who gave us great tips "just in case" and it even possibly rekindled a bit of Zakkai's desire to be a firefighter! He was going to sleep tonight dreaming of putting out a spark in a big building;)
Eliana just loved going and spent the rest of the afternoon wearing her fire hat, calling herself a "fire girl" and pulling around her fire truck, which was really Ben's shoe attached to a string:)
Our weekend in a nutshell!
