Adrienne - Hope it's okay that I started this....
Jess- Woohoo for sleeping through the night!
AFM - School is sucking up all my time and energy these days.
Sorry no time for personals. My schedule has been super crazy so I haven't had a lot of time online, but I have been reading all of your posts..
Ella - Gabby is totally getting the hang of food! It's amazing in the last week she has really exceled. and saturday we were eating out at a chinease place and I gave her one of the onions from my sweet and sour chicken without the sauce and she totally loved the onion! I couldn't believe it. I didn't expect her to, so it wasn't a very long piece and I had to take it away from her because she was trying to swallow the entire thing. So we got some longer strings of onion (going to try them again tonight) and she sucked on it for like 20 minutes! It never reached the floor. The cooked carrot on the other hand kept getting the icky face, how funny is that. Definately taking after DH. it took me 29 years to like raw onions.Saw my SIL & BIL and my niece this weekend, that was fun to hang out with them. THey are going through some personal things that they aren't willing to share, so I am worried about them. Sounds like my SIL is having a tough time, so hopefully they can work through whatever it is. Found out that's why they went on vacation even though they couldn't afford it. So hopefully that time away helped.
I don't remember if I posted this, but I signed Gabby up for ECFE classes and I can't wait for them to start next monday. DH is going to take her the one monday that I have a conflict, but it should be a lot of fun!
Kate - ECFE classes are Early Childhood and Family Education classes.
All the schools in the State of MN have these ECFE classes for kids 0 to
5. It's put on by the school districts. so we go once a week for an
hour and 15 minutes for story time, play time and then 40 minutes of
supervised play time for the kids without the parents and they have a
discussion for the parents. So I am super excited. there are only 6
weeks left of the school year, so it starts next Monday. Good time to
get away from the house with her and interact with some other parents
IRL, since I don't get that too much!.
