Man, I'm so bummed right now! I was just in one of my clients subdivision ($$$$) and someone was throwing out an antique Peg Perego carriage and it wouldn't fit in my car so I had to leave it at the curb. I even rang the doorbell to see if they could help me fold it (or maybe it doesn't fold?) but no one answered. It needs a good cleaning but the fabric was a beautiful brown suede. I was hopeful it would be worth something. Oh well, guess it wasn't meant for me. :-(

Can you go back at a later with a bigger car? or go back and see if they are home? that is a bummer if you can't get it. I hope it's still there when you go back.

Hi Jess,

I actually had our bigger car but since I couldn't get it to fold up, it wouldn't fit in the trunk or backseat. It's kinda far from my house, about 25-30 min, and DH is going to be home late tonight so I'd have to bring Selin with. I'm afraid to look on eBay to see what it might have been worth!

Oh Anna, deliberate spitting - LOL! While Elena doesn't quite "spit", she does like to drink her milk or water and then open her mouth to let it dribble out. And she always does it in front of a mirror so she can see it. Oh these kids... LOL.

The job is going well, thanks for asking! It's nice having a bit of extra money coming in, and I think the break from each other is doing both Elena and me some good! And yes, she sure does look like DH. I should post one of his baby pictures so you can really see the resemblance! LOL.

Haha Adrienne, I wasn't even thinking of Ash, but someone IRL, but she's a good example too!

Brita, that's a real bummer about the carriage! I hope it actually was a worthless piece of junk. :)

AFM - just got back from Toys-R-Us with Elena. I let her roam free for the first time (at TRU anyway) and man did she have a blast. Her absolute favourite thing in the whole world is Elmo (not sure how that happened) so of course she was drawn to all the Elmo things. She also loved the Fisher Price Corn Popper thing that they had when we were kids! LOL. I literally had to drag her out kicking and screaming (yup, it was one of those scenes), but at least I have a few ideas for Christmas now. :)

Kelly - LOL about dragging Elena out of TRU. I had to "drag" Eliza out of the library the other day and she was SO MAD. I thought that started later...like when they were 2?!

Christine - what a bummer about the carriage! Sorry you couldn't get it home :/ Not the same... but the other day there was a cute little tykes picnic table out on the curb by my house and by the time I was able to go get it someone had taken it already. I hate that feeling!

Ella- What did you use to teach the signs to Eliza?

You mean like how did I teach her? I would just repeatedly sign the signs to her - like when dinner was over, I'd always sign "all done" to her and then take her out of her high chair so she associated the two. Same with "milk". Each time we'd nurse, I'd do the sign with my other hand and say "Eliza is having milk" - and I'd just do it consistently each time. With "more" (that one took a while for her to get) - she would fuss and cry when she'd want more food, so I'd ask her, "does Eliza want more?" while doing the sign, and then I'd give her more and say "okay, Eliza is having more". Repeat, repeat, repeat! She caught on quite quickly.

I learned the signs from another mom friend of mine. I've heard that some people use a DVD (that the child is supposed to watch) to teach them signs, but DH and I aren't comfortable with that much TV time for Eliza right now... so yeah, we just taught her the old fashioned way. :)
