I am going to try and do a giant catch-up post on our last few weeks.
Up Close and Personal with the Horses:
Look at Adia's delight...
We met Heidi, Honor and Eden at the zoo.
In this picture, Adia has a firm grasp of Eden's hair.
First Time at the Kiddie Pool
My Mom and I took the girls to see what they thought of the kiddie pool...
$6, 30 minutes and a screaming fit later, we left and decided maybe we should stick to a backyard pool (in the shade) this Summer. I am destined to stay pasty white all-year. :)
Cousins Come for a Visit
Ang and girls came over for a fun afternoon. Jada and Adia really had a better time than is reflected in this picture. ;)
Transitioning to High Chairs, Baby Sign and Homemade Baby Food
It was also time to transition to the high chairs! It is so much cleaner to feed them!
I have been working on a few signs with the girls ("more" and "all-done"). Jada is successfully use the "more" sign!
While talking with my sister-in-law this past weekend, I added up what I estimated the cost of the girls' formula and baby food for a day. Oh my. Meika has a son a few months older than the girls and she told me how easy it is to make your own baby food. So, you now see homemade sweet potatoes on those girls' lips.
Turning into Puzzlers...
Yes, that is right. I have never completed a puzzle bigger than 100 pieces. Last night, Jon suggested we do a puzzle. Once the girls are down, we are kind of limited on activities as we need to stay in the house. I laughed and felt like an old person and told Jon that I was not a puzzler. However, we decided to tackle one, 500 pieces no less, and I must admit, it is kind of addicting!
While we puzzled, we listened to an INCREDIBLE sermon.
Listen to it today while you check blogs, make dinner or pay the bills.
Table of Nations by Voddie Baucham
Our American culture has been so misinformed on this subject. We both learned a lot and agreed we have never heard such a clear, concise, biblical perspective on God's Creation of one race.
