Mostly Edie......with a touch of Ella!!!

Normally once Edie is put down for the night she is out. Well tonight I heard her crying about an hour in so I went up...gave her some teething tablets and tried to put her back down. Typically this works...(FYI...teething tablets are freakishly successful). But tonight little Miss Edie Claire was not having it.....well, I am a sucker for crocodile tears....and these girls KNOW IT!!! So I brought her down with me and we played! Even though I feel a little bit of mommy guilt even saying this..it's sometimes nice to just have some one on one time with each girl!!! Here are some pictures from our playtime...
CHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESE!!!
I found her like this.......
Here is Edie sampling something her sister whipped up.....
"man this needs some salt Ella".....(that's a plastic salt shaker in her mouth)
A little prelude to THEEEEEEEEEEEE...........
With E Squared being mobile now......and hungry....it's very hard to eat ANYTHING without them needing some. Jon and I often try to hide things that we eat...by hide I mean eat with our head in the fridge and the door closed as much as possible, hide food in our palm only take a bite when they aren't looking, etc... (we only hide things we don't think they should eat, ie...skinny cow ice cream sandwiches....)! More times than not we get BUSTED!!! It's as if they have tiny hidden food sensors or something.....and they always want some! So yesterday I had to have a skinny cow......you know......my time of the you know what.....the time when chocolate is my BFF. Oh who am I kidding chocolate is always by BFF!!! I attempted to "sneak" a skinny cow and Edie needed some...she would not let me hold it......she insisted on doing it herself... complete with the back arching and high pitched screams. So I reluctantly chopped it up and let them have at it in their high chairs......it was too cold for Ella but here......
Edie LOVED it!!!
Here is Edie in her 12 month sized (too small) PJs........
remember the prelude before..........well.......here it is!!!
We have moved up from a bucket to a sink..........
Ella loves loves loves this thing........
Nite Nite...........

I always thought I was the only Mom who tried to hide food from the kids. Sometimes I just don't wanna share, lol!! Cute pics as always. They are getting so big. Happy Mother's Day,Sam!

I STILL have to hide food from the now 3 year old.... unless I want her grubby little fingers in it. Apparently, it never ends.

I'm not the only one who has a child who wants/will eat anything that I have and throws a fit if I don't give in...( :

Love the water table...it needs to warm up here a little more before we can even THINK about water time!

The babes are too cute...late nights and skinny cows. I love those things too.

I love the outdoor sink too. That looks fun!

Glad to read things are going well.

Take care, Kelly
