What A Weekend!

The most exciting part of my weekend came last night, or was it this morning? Baby Ellie allowed me nearly four consecutive hours of sleep. As Maggie would say, "Praise be to Jesus!". Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights were not good. I'm blaming it on the teeth issue. I'm now using those homeopathic teething tablets (for Ellie, not me) , and so far I think they are helping.

Ellie's smile sort of shows how I felt this morning! Pardon the short-sleeved romper. I had planned to put a white turtleneck underneath and sort of forgot. After taking Muff to school and getting groceries Ellie had Cheerios (cut in half) in her exersaucer and then changed into the turtleneck.

Anyway...Big Daddy took Miss Muffinhead to the gym with him on Saturday and Ellie and I ran a few errands, a.k.a. she slept in the sling while I ran errands. We decided to make a T.arget run and go to dinner at Panera. Yes, Panera again. We always think that we'll go somewhere lse, but we really love Panera right now! We always get the same thing, too. Muff always packs a meal to go and gets a cookie for dessert. She LOVES Panera, but wasn't crazy about the "new" one that we went to this weekend. Big Daddy said it "felt funny" and they vowed to only eat at our "old" Panera from now on.

We managed to go to church on Sunday. YAY! Everyone was happy to be back. Ellie will be moving to the big class oon since she's crawling. This is a first for us since The Muffin never had to move up to a new class. I'm sad, but so happy that Ellie is growing and progressing as she should. Both girls also enjoyed going to Church last night. Muffin's teacher said that she is the "mose well-behaved" child in the four year old Worship and Music class. I'm so happy about that. I had a nice time in the parenting class, too.

Maggie and Ellie found themselves in Daddy's room (a.k.a. the bonus room/playroom) last night. Ellie enjoyed reading a book and rocking babies.
Have I mentioned that she loves babydolls! I'll try to get a picture of her with Baby Joy or Thelma sometime soon. Ellie's love of babies has also caused The Muffin to want to play babies a little more...I LOVE IT!

Good sleep makes everything better. Has Maggie let go of Baby Joy and passed her off to Ellie? Saw your mom yesterday! She said the same thing to me as you did in your email :-)

Gooner is teething to and man oh man. We've been blessed though because even with teething she is a really good sleeper. We still don't have any teeth yet! I'm so glad Muff behaved so well! That is a proud moment for you!
