The Little Mermaid and Other Stuff

In December, Sierra and I took Isabella and Maya to see "The Nutcracker" ballet.  It was a very exciting day, including lunch at Panera (or "the bagel store" as Isabella calls it).  Charlotte stayed home with Michael because it was a "big girl and baby boy day" according to Maya.  Milo wasn't quite ready to stay home with daddy for more than an hour or two, so he went with us.  We had so much fun that we decided to do it again when the Cuyahoga Valley Youth Ballet presented "The Little Mermaid", and this time Adrianne and Jamie came with Kendall and Eden, too.  The girls were so stinkin cute, from dancing around at lunch to playing around before the show started to starting to demand politely ask for snacks and water all of 4 minutes into the show :)  It really was a great day with friends and I'm so glad to have these women (and their daughters!) in my life.

Milo started solids last week.  We are introducing them very slowly and take the "baby led solids" approach so he's basically just mushes food up in his hands and then looks at us with a look that says, "where did it go?????"  We've moved our dining room table back into our dinette because it was in our carpeted dining room which, as you can imagine, was not the best location for a baby learning how to eat!

The weather has been unbelievable the past several days so we have been outside as much as possible soaking up all that good Vitamin D and running out some pent-up energy.  The girls have been sleeping really well (just jinxed myself there...oops!) and we're all just in a generally happier mood ~ yay!


"Look left!"


Milo's first swing experience...

...he loved it!

"Oh, you want *this*?  Ya, no that ain't happening, Milo."

Sierra pulled out the Goldfish, and suddenly she was the most popular girl at the park!
