Martha in the house

September 24th, 2009

I’m busy trying my hand at Honey Wheat Bread today so entertain yourselves with some photos of the wee ones.  I am also making home made chicken noodle soup.  I actually contemplated (for about 2 minutes) making my own noodles.  I nixed the idea because I was afraid Steve might stage an intervention.  When I mentioned it to him, he confirmed that he would have indeed staged one.

Many kids turn signs into some approximation of the correct sign.  Tessa is dainty like her mother so she turned “Eat” (fingers to lips) into stuffing her whole fist in her mouth.  She should be a big hit at frat parties in 18 years.


No great strides or set backs to report in the feeding arena.  But her 6  jars of baby food a day (plus a yo baby yogurt and cereal) habit is getting pricey so we are just about ready to go cold turkey and see if we can resolve the issue through sheer force of will.


Tessa also feels her playful side isn’t adequately showcased on the blog. (Momma’s defense is that no one wants to see photos of the back of her head captured when Tessa is roaming free.)


She still refuses to talk without holding on to something but has taken a few steps when she isn’t paying attention and really doesn’t hold on tightly anymore.


Sabrina still loves her ballerina outfit for dance class.  She still loves the idea of going to dance class.  I’m just not sure that she likes the actual dance class.  I’m torn between thinking her inability to follow directions and difficulty doing a few of the steps and lack of desire to practice things like tiptoe walking or galloping is part of being barely 3 or is a sign she just isn’t that into it.  I think we’ll give it a few months and see what she thinks.  If she doesn’t seem to warm up to it, we’ll try a tumbling class at the local gymnastics place instead.

    Cracked up at the frat party bit. Just dont let her play with the funnels in your kitchen if you know what I mean. On the dance thing, since my guy is three now, I think it’s an attention span thing. I don’t think mine would follow directions for any length of time either – see how it goes.

    The picture with Tessa and the bow in her hair with the spoon in her hair is just priceless. She looks so happy and full of baby joy!

    We’re taking a break from dance – Mimi’s the youngest and just wants to hop around. Granted she has a huge smile on her face the whole time, but the ballet teacher seems annoyed. I heard of another class that’s more fun and less technique so we may try that one. Still chewing on it. :0
