Discovery children's museum!

Chloe on the air blowers.  She had a similar reaction to them as Sophia did at this age.

She likes the balls.

Sophia exploring the "rainforest".  She was a much bigger fan of the rope bridge this year, and ran back and forth over it a few times.


Look!  Fish!!

Playing with the blow-y thingies (you shove an overgrown pompom in there and it goes through the track until it poofs out)

Chloe in the baby area.  She perfected sliding already.

Sophia showing her how its done.'re a bit old for this area now.....

Water play!

More water play!  And an amazingly realistic lobster that freaked Sophia out for a minute.

We still LOVE this museum, and I am really enjoying the fact that Sophia can enjoy some of the older things now, and Chloe is experiencing what Sophia has already done.  Can't wait to visit again!

Chloe's growing up!

Sitting and chewing

Ham is a big hit

And Papa is pretty cool.

Especially now that he's not afraid her head will pop off.

Reading with sister

And running her first half marathon ex-utero

Mashed potatoes were better used as face cream than eaten.

Wearing the good team.  :)

Helping mommy rescue the things in the -80C freezer that bit the dust.

Going for a walk

Ringing bells (find the baby!)

Practicing our driving.  She's got waving the hand and hitting the steering wheel down pat.  And reaching for those shiny, jingly things juuuuuuust out of her reach.  Don't forget chewing on the steering wheel!  

Baby containment device.

She sleeps like her sister.

And is just as snuggly.  <3 

Where someone thought I should plan a baby shower

 Sister's having a kid.  And by having, I mean had by this point.  But hadn't at the time of the shower.  So, since sister was having a kid, she needed a shower.  The kind without water.  The kind where you get all kinds of fun things for the impending kid.  Therefore, a shower was had.
We decorated onesies.  Some more appropriately than others.

We had a diaper cake.  Not to look at.

Can you tell what our theme was?  Because every shower needs a theme, so I'm told.

Mom-to-be spot

Other than raising my blood pressure for a good week, the shower was a bunch of fun.  I will never plan another one....they pay people to do that, but I can check that off my bucket list of "things I should do before I die and never do again."  I think sister and co made off with some pretty nifty things.
