March 29 - April 8

Lynlee was practicing some of her gymnastics moves.

Since Cece is the only attendee at the ASL playgroup, it was decided to end early, and this was our final day.  We met at the Orem Library since the USDB already took over our regular classroom.  I've been working on colors with Cece for a little while, and for the first time, it clicked.  Kristi or I would sign, "where's green?" and she would run and stand on a green square.  Then she would sign green and point, and Kristi & I would move to a green square.  We played this game for over 10 minutes.

Ahhh!  The shark is eating the toys.

We wandered around and found this stage.  The only other time I have been to this library was when we met Tayler there for a Christmas-time visit when Ellie was a baby.  I don't remember a sign then saying "don't touch this" and we took pictures of them in front of the curtain.

Cece loved playing this fishing game with Kristi.

I tried to get Cece to reenact the colors game on the way out, but she was having none of it.  She just wanted to eat the snack that Kristi gave her.

The last Thursday morning play date with Sister Meiners and Paisley!  Sister Meiners made Lynnie this awesome Star Wars shirt.

Ellie was in charge of the camera and she mostly took video, but here is the photographic evidence that we finally "threw out" Cece's bottles.   She was excited to put them all in the bag and put it in the garbage can.

By the next day, this is all of the milk she had drunk.  And she never drank any more milk beyond the sips from this cup.  After about 5 days, she finally started drinking adequate amounts of water.  Up until then, she was eating about 10 applesauce pouches a day and getting her liquidity needs from that...

Lynlee likes to tell me, "I'm obsessed with Star Wars.  And Harry Potter."

On YouTube kids, Cece watches these surprise egg videos, and sometimes the eggs are encased in these little ball things. Well, we found some at the store and had to get a few packs to try out.  It's actually a pretty weird texture -- tougher than I expected. 

We went to violin lessons in the morning (since it is Spring Break) and then went to the aquarium with Grandma.  The parking lot was packed and there were 2 school buses, but it didn't feel overly crowded inside.  We stayed for an hour and then left to get Cece home for a nap.

Kanisha texted to see if they could take Lynlee out to lunch that afternoon.  I had already committed to watching a couple of kids (and Lynnie was excited for her playdate) so they came and hung out with us for the afternoon.  They were nice and did perler beads with Lynnie for a couple of hours. Notice the box with purples, blues, blacks, and whites all mixed up.  My mom started sorting that box that night while she was babysitting and we finished it up before going to bed that night.
