Over the weekend Daniel became really proficient at climbing in and out of our dining room chairs. We decided to try out normal chairs for mealtimes, and he really loves it. Family meals are so fun with everyone in a chair, and the room seems so much more spacious with the high chair folded up in the corner now. I love my kids getting more independent!
On Sunday Adam needed to deliver a huge ice chest to someone, so he had to take the carseats out of the car. We still have them in the house because the covers needed to be washed, and so yesterday Katrina spent as much time in the chair as she could. I pulled Daniel's chair over and they chilled out in front of the tv for awhil.e
My kids are both thumb-suckers. Katrina only sucks hers through her blanket, and Daniel loves to hold the tail of his turtle while sucking. It's pretty cute!
So here's a funny story: Last night Katrina watched Dora before bed, and they were singing some little ditty that sounded a bit like "Pop, goes the weasel." Katrina kept singing it as she was getting ready to bed, with various syllables, but her favorite was, "Doomba, doomba, doomba!" Adam asked her to say the prayer. For prayers, she repeats after us still. Well, this time she added something in to each phrase. It came out something like this: "Doomba, doomba, doomba! Dear Heavenly Father doomba. Thank you for this day doomba. Help us to sleep well doomba . . . . Amen, doomba, doomba, doomba!" I was trying so hard not to laugh!
