Lynlee was passed around for quite a while and had fun playing with Ann, McKinzie, and Syreese. Syreese has the magic touch and got her to fall asleep.
Ellie's new favorite food is mashed potatoes with cheese (gotta love those Potato Pearls from the cannery!). I made them a little more runny than normal, and Ellie made a huge mess. So much fun!!!
When Greg is gone for a game, bedtime can be a little tricky. It usually works out fine if I can get Lynlee to take her evening nap. This is the shortest nap of the day, usually lasting only 20-30 minutes. Friday night, Lyn was not ready to go to sleep, but she was happily playing on her activity mat. So I whisked Ellie into the tub for a fast bath. We were just rinsing her hair when Lynlee let us know she was ready for attention. Out of the tub and in to get sister we went. We found her ready for sleep, so I quickly put her in bed. Ellie was proud of herself for climbing in the chair and then playing peek-a-boo with her towel!
Saturday we spent the day with Aunt Tammy and Greg and had a great time. We went to the 4A and 5A girls' basketball championships. Ellie was fascinated by the noise and the excitement, and loved eating the nacho chips. Lynlee was a dream baby, getting comments from everyone sitting around us. She laughed and smiled, and then slept through all of the noise and excitement.
Ellie took about a 7 minute snooze in the car on the way home - her only nap for the entire day. Notice that Lynlee is awake, and E fell asleep holding her cup of snacks.
No nap on Saturday + Davis home sick = cranky in nursery on Sunday. And with church from 1-4, we again had no nap on Sunday (except for about 5 minutes that she fell asleep in Emily's arms in the nursery). This equaled a nice early bedtime, and plenty of time to play with beautiful Lyn!
