Save Me, Saturday!

It's been a busy end of the week. Elsie is still expanding her food choices...she's tried peanut butter and jelly as well as hashbrowns in the past two days.

Last night, we went to see the movie Wall-E at the theatre. Elsie's friend, Breanna, came with us. She usually comes for a playdate every third Friday of the month. The two of them kept us busy, that's for sure. Jason and I each made a trip to the ladie's room...well, men's room in Jason's case. We always seem to be blessed with a nearly empty theatre when we go. It's nice because the girls can wander up and down our row switching seats as they please without disturbing anyone. It was a great movie so I recommend you see it! Claira happily slept through everything after the first 10 minutes.

This morning, we went to sign Elsie up for her first dance class. Classes start the second week of September, and I'm so excited to dress her up like a little ballerina and watch her twirl around. We made a trip to WalMart this morning to pick up a couple of leotards and tights. Later today, we're going to take her for her very first haircut. I'll probably have a whole post about that afterwards. We might try and find her some ballet slippers while we're out.

Miss Claira is growing and having new experiences everyday. She pulled up for the first times this week. Put that girl in front of an open toybox, and she'll find a way to get to it! Also, in less exciting advancements (at least for Mommy), she has already learned how to get down off of my lap. I'll be sitting in a chair holding her, and she'll roll over to her belly and slide down my lap until she's standing on the floor. I can hardly even believe she's doing that so early. Of the two, Elsie is definitely the snugglebug (even at 3) but I didn't expect Claira to learn escape techniques so soon!
