Tonight, E spent most of the evening playing with water at the sink. She's got two measuring cups she fills, and then occasionally takes a drink. We also had to have a dinosaur at the dinner table, she shared her milk with it very nicely, although having a toy at the table didn't help her eat any better.
The big excitement of the night was getting markers. E loves to color, and had really been wanting markers. She had a great time with them, although she can't get the lids off by herself.
December 4- This morning we had breakfast with Ama and Grandpa Ada at Copper Top, we had a great table, close to a window so we could distract E. We also brought clothes baby, which is our secret weapon when eating out. After breakfast, we picked out our Christmas tree. While we did a little Christmas shopping, E went mall walking with Ama and Grandpa Ada. Unfortunately, the mall just got rid of the small coin operated car that E liked to ride on, but she was ok without it.
We decorated the tree this afternoon and then played with R. E was so cute when she was decorating the tree. The first thee ornaments I handed her, she placed carefully on the tree skirt. After a few more tries, she got the idea of decorating the tree itself.
