They didn't have school last Thursday and Friday (or tomorrow) so on Thursday, Ava went roller skating with the Kids Choice group. I think she had fun as now she wants us to buy her roller skates! Tomorrow they're going to pack meals for people who are less fortunate, and also make blankets (I think...) I'm just happy that things are going well for her - although she challenges us daily, in the end, I think it'll be good that we have such a smart little kid on our hands!
Garrett had his four month check-up this week (12.68lbs, 25" - long and skinny!) He's also doing well, but he ended up getting a low-grade fever from one of his vaccines. Our provider was nice enough to let him stay the entire day, as she knew it was because he had his shots. We're very thankful that people can be reasonable about those kinds of things!
I fed him rice cereal on Saturday morning and it went much better than when I tried a few weeks ago. This time he acknowledged there was something different in his mouth, and he made an effort to smoosh it around and swallow it. He pooped it all out within 5 minutes, but at least we're getting him used to the new texture. :) And it was nice having him up at the table with us while we ate breakfast!
We FINALLY made the time to get some things hung up on the walls, get one of our TVs mounted, Garrett's video monitor up, etc. Scott was teasing me about buying things to decorate the bathroom, so I told him it's my responsibility to bring the beauty into the house, while he can worry about the function. And you know what? He did a great job measuring/hanging everything so it looks nice! We've got a long ways to go to get this house completely unpacked/decorated, but at least we're taking baby steps to get there.
Ava was having fun playing her princess piano for G. Not sure he was so thrilled.
What a great pic - thanks, Ava! ;) (I'm tired.)
Helping Mommy make Grandma Goers' banana bread - so good!
Tonight, we're going to try some food from a new place in town...the House of Curry. My friend, Emilie, is going to come over and we're going to get dinner to-go. Looking forward to it - I've been craving curry/spicy food for a while, and I've heard this place is tasty. Yum!
