Life in Pictures

She's two-fistin' it! One of her favorite things to eat right now is toast. Actually, I think she'd eat anything we'd give her. She's a great eater.

She's also a master of the sippy cup, which makes me super excited for a few weeks from now when we switch to cow's milk. No more bottles and formula!!!

I took this picture as Darrin and I went to bed after 10 (thanks for the awesome flash Marlena and Noah!). Ian has been coming out of his room a lot at night. He goes to bed around 7:30, and so when he'd walk out around 8 or 8:30, one of our theories became that he may not be tired since he has been taking naps every day at school. To try and stop the leaving, we're trying a strategy in which he can stay up and read books in his room as long as he'd like. We smiled when we saw him in bed like this because he looks he just made it back into bed before he fell asleep. And no, he doesn't have pjs on. Some nights he asks to just keep his clothes on, and in the land of 'pick and choose your battles' this is one battle we choose to lose.

Saturday I spent a lot of time in the kitchen. I made prepped beef stew to keep in the freezer (so that I can just pull it out and throw it in the crock pot some day), magic bars, and homemade hot pockets (again stored in the freezer for us to take for lunch). You can add to the list brownie I made on Sunday. Please tell me I'm not the only one who has a kitchen that looks like this during a cooking session...

This is Annaliese 98% of the time- she is such a happy girl! She's doing what we call her 'scrunchy' face. LOVE IT! She absolutely loves bath time, especially since we've taken her out of her baby tub and put her in the big tub with Ian. They are so fun to watch together.

She's even not feeling 100% and she's still a happy girl!

Sunday was a big day in our household. The Packers won the Super Bowl (in case you didn't know...). So of course we were all decked out for the day.

Ian's my little detective. He was helping with the dishes and couldn't figure out why the drawer wasn't closing. He ran off and returned with his little Buzz Lightyear flashlight, got down on his hands and knees, and tried to figure out why. It was so darn cute! He kept moving to get a better angle and he'd talk to himself. I think he finally determined that there's a red lid in the way.
