Hey Grandma, Look at me!

This Week's Update...

We've had several great days in a row this week where we stayed in our pj's WAY past standard pj time, we've read lots of books, played with lots of toys, eaten great food, & actually enjoyed tummy time! Woo-hoo! This week, Eloise also decided to roll multiple times - I put her in the middle of the blanket on the living room floor & within 5 minutes, she was at the step to the entry way! Go Ella go. Here are some pics from our week:

Tim dressed her for Kindermusik class this week - here's what she wore:
(She got rave reviews at class for her attire).

Tryin' on Daddy's hat. Not too sure about this one...

What's For Dinner?

Tonight Eloise had left over peas, pears, & we introduced her to squash. She thought it was delish as you will soon see in the pictures. The first picture however, was taken last night. She has decided that the new lovie is just the best & sleeps every night like this:

At first I was worried, but if I go move it off of her face, she just puts it right back. Eventually through the night, she moves it to her side. I love how she loves to snuggle!

Now on to dinner:

She is able to now pick up the puffs and put them in her mouth! She still spits them out, but she eats them sooner or later. :)

Daddy feeding her squash: (She likes to help & as you will see in the next photo, she's very helpful....).

Mmmm! Dinner was gggoooooddd!

Eloise This week

This week Eloise & I have had a nice quiet week at home. We've played with Amanda & Miss Sophia several times, gone on walks, taken naps, spent lots of time on our tummy and in mama's arms, read books, played with Auntie Laura, Nellie, & Mia, & today we went to MOPS. It's been a good week.

Eloise decided a week and a half ago to babble saying 'da da da'. I've also caught her saying 'ma ma ma' !! She's sitting up, drinking from a sippy cup (sort of), & enjoying every day. Here are a few photos taken this past week:

Beth's Birthday...

So...technically Beth's birthday is October 1st. However, we thought is would be fun to celebrate her all month :) & end on Friday night with a costume party. We had a grand time & enjoyed the costumes. Here are a few pics from the event:

Weekend Recap...

Is Tuesday too late for a weekend recap? I don't think here goes!

Last Thursday this fine young lady came to visit us. We were thrilled to have her here for a few short days. We jam packed our weekend with fun adventures to be had & lots of girlie time (Tim was a great sport & participated in most of the girlie fun). Here's a quick list of what we did:

Thursday evening: Picked Erin-o up from the airport

Friday: Ran errands for Beth's birthday party (which we hosted later that evening - pictures coming in a post soon), went to Corvallis to have coffee with Nicole, ran more Beth party related errands, came home & got ready for the party.

Saturday: Nicole came over (& there was MUCH rejoicing!!), we went to lunch at Wild Pear - Eloise in costume, shopped downtown a little bit, went home & decided to scrapbook. That's when it started to go downhill...
I had a *little bit* of an unorganized mess on my hands. Now, if you know me at all, you know that messes aren't my thing. But apparently that doesn't apply to scrapbooking for me. So...I pulled out a basket & told the girls I needed to organize it before we could scrap. Nicole took one look at the space & said - that's more than just a basket. I think Erin wanted to get back on the plane right then. :) Two hours (yes, I said two HOURS) later, we finished organizing the space & started to scrap in my newly renovated scrap area. I love it now & I promise girls, I will keep up the good organization in this pretty, pretty area now. :)
Saturday evening we handed out candy & scrapped while watching a Halloween movie & eating delicious squash soup that Erin made for us.

Sunday: we played in the morning, and then headed to the beach after lunch. We went to Neskowin & to the Outlet mall in Lincoln City. Sunday night, Nicole went home. We were sad.

Monday: we went to Busick Court for breakfast (YUMM) & then went & for a walk to take pictures of the fall leaves around my neighborhood. Then it was time to take Miss Erin to the airport. Eloise cried. :) So we took her up there & dropped her off. We ended up going over to Laura's house & staying the night with her, so that helped take away some of the hurt of my girls leaving me. Thanks again Erin & Nicole for a wonderful weekend together! Love my girls...
