In other news, today was a better day with the girls (thankfully). We had many more giggles and much less tears today!
Oh, and this shirt Raya is wearing?
That was my latest experiment. You see, I have many pairs of knee high socks laying around (to make legwarmers with) and Raya has lots of short sleeve shirts that still fit from this past summer, and very few long sleeve ones! So put the two together (literally) and you have a new long sleeve shirt that looks like the "2 shirts in one" style that is so popular right now! Yes, I sewed socks to her shirt to make sleeves :-P It worked great and Raya thought it was super comfy! This would work for sizes as small as 3/6 months (looser fit arms) all the way to 4T/5T (more fitted arms). I think this opens up all sorts of possibilities if I were to use the fun patterned socks too! I'm thinking maybe Brielle's sock monkey birthday outfit will have sock sleeves :-)
And yes, she's sitting on the kitchen counter. Just one of the many reasons I love this new kitchen...counters contain toddlers who don't like to stand still for pictures!
Not to leave out Brielle...
Raya loves stacking block towers, and rather than buy a special set of blocks I just let her use our Jenga game :-P
To end this somewhat disjointed update, here is Brielle's latest obsession. Numerous times a day (like tonight before bed) I hear banging in the kitchen and run in to find this:
Guess she found what she needed :-P
Oh, and since I've promised to end each update this month with something that I'm thankful for, tonight I am thankful for my husband's job! Not only am I thankful he has *any* job in today's economy, but I'm very thankful that he worked hard to secure a career where he can support the family and which allows me to stay home with the girls when they're little. With Raya I was very appreciative of how lucky I was to stay home, but I think with Brielle I tend to take it for granted more because I've gotten so used to the idea of being a stay-at-home mom. But when I stop to think about the fact that Brielle is almost 10 months old and I've never had to leave her with a babysitter (other than my mom) it makes me very very thankful!! So thanks to the hubby for working hard :-) ...and we'll see if Lee reads this, because today he told me that he often skims my blog and only reads parts when I mention him, to ensure that I'm not making him look bad :-P
