Days 313, 314, 315, and 316

Elise riding in our new double stroller. The double stroller is WONDERFUL! Makes makes going out in public with three kids under 2 years old soooooooo much easier. January 15th:

January 16th:

On Martin Luther King Day, we took the kids to the local Florida History Museum. They were all very well behaved, and Elise even fell asleep at the end of the trip. Here she is, all strapped in to her car seat. January 17th:

Nap time for Elise and her friend Deanna. January 11th:

Elise loves the bath. No more baby tub for her, either! We got a non-slip bath mat and now she sits in the bath like a big girl. January 12th:

Elise climbed into her bouncy chair and started scream-bouncing on the morning of January 13th:

Pretty baby. January 14th:

Days 305, 306, 307, and 308

Elise made an angry scratch on her face. :( January 7th:

Looking less angry, January 8th:

Elise loves sitting in the laundry basket for some reason. January 9th:

Sleep walking? Sort of. Sleepy walking might be a better description. January 10th:

Elise is starting to prefer walking to crawling. If she wants to go somewhere fast, she crawls. But most other times she'll stand up and try to walk. It's so funny to see her tiny little baby body toddling around.

Last picture of 2010! Elise in her Santa hat, December 31st:

This year marks the second New Year's Day that we've baked cookies together as a family to celebrate the new year. We made cookies that all of the kids could eat-- Elise, Ingrid, and Caleb. They are made with bananas and oats and some spices, but no sugar or salt. The kids loved them! Here is Elise eating hers:

Wow. I'm waaaaaay behind on my Elise Every Day posts. Yikes! Well, here I am, trying to catch back up.

This picture from December 26th was taken at my sister's baby shower. Baby James is due in February.

Traveling back to Tallahassee on December 27th, we stopped in Gainesville to let Elise, Ingrid, and Caleb get out of the car and play. We found a play place full of kids!

Sleepy Eater

Sometimes Elise falls asleep while we are feeding her.

This video is a record of just such an occasion.

Afterward we went to clear her mouth in case she didn't swallow the food and she just spit it right out, still sleeping.

There is no sound because I took this video with my cell phone while I was on a call.
