Weekend Wrap-up!

"So, mom what is our plan for this morning!"

"My feet sure are cute."

"Now, that sounds like a great idea."

Evie loves her animals except for the lion because he is "scary."

Evie puts her animals in the cave. Notice the lion way back in the cave - AKA under the chair.

Playing dress-up is so much fun!
It rained all weekend in Nashville and we were LAZY! We loved it! On Saturday, we took Carl's truck to get the emissions test and then went to Costco to get a few things. You can get 90 days worth of Claritin for a really great deal. Thanks to Carl's cousin Stephen for the tip!
Evie is still taking forever to fall asleep for her naps and then waking up between 4:30 and 5. She still needs a long nap so we may have to adjust bedtime. We are hoping this is a phase because we like early bedtimes at our house. She went to bed at 7:30 last night and woke up at 8:30 this morning which was wonderful.  Tonight, she did not get to sleep for quite awhile after we put her in the crib. She's very content and just does her thing which involves lots of songs and talking. We are amazed at how much her vocabulary has grown in the last week. I have gotten a few comments regarding Evie's bubble toy. It is from Gymboree and she uses it all the time!

   I had a chance to do some reading this weekend with all the rain keeping us indoors. I finished The Most Important Place on Earth - a book about raising your child in a Christian home. It was excellent and made lots of amazing points. On a totally different note, I read Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother. It was much different from what I expected but really good. Most parents want what is best for their kids but we all have such different ways of getting there. Can't wait to discuss this one at book club. It will be interesting plus we are going to my favorite noodle house for dinner.
