whew...sleep woes!

Oh boy, it's been a rough weekend! Chris' parents and aunt and uncle came up from Georgia and Panama City (respectively) and we had a terrific time with them. We went to the Children's Museum and Constitution Village in Huntsville on Saturday and then we went to the Botanical Gardens on Sunday. The girls had a great time with Nana, Grandad, Aunt Ree, and Uncle John. However, being out and about and going all day meant that Katie didn't get all of the naps that she needs, which means that her nighttime sleep has been off, too. Top it off with a snotty nose and congestion and poor Katie is struggling. Oh well...she's still a sweet little monkey. I'm not even going to mention Maggie and her whole sleep issues. Oh well...she's pretty cute, too.

So how about a couple of pictures? :)

That's Maggie enjoying some watermelon at Grady's birthday party the other weekend. Do ya think she liked the watermelon?

How stinkin' cute is Miss Katie? She wasn't much interested in actually eating the food, but she was way into just chewing on the spoon itself.

Speaking of Katie, guess who got some new food experiences this weekend? Miss Katie was CHOWING down on rice at Rosie's Mexican Cantina on Saturday--we're talking fistfuls of rice heading right for her mouth. Sure, there was tons of rice on the floor, but lots made it into her mouth, too. (and we left a big tip as well as trying to pick up as much of the rice as we could.) Then on Sunday Katie and Maggie went with Nana, Grandad, Aunt Ree, and Uncle John to a German restaurant for lunch and Katie ate her fill of the German Rye bread. Who knew!?! I am still trying to give her baby food at meals, but she's getting less and less interested in that. Zwieback Toast? Oh yeah. Baby applesauce? Not so much. No wonder she likes real food. She's cutting her 8th tooth!

Maggie is riding her big girl bike like a pro (with training wheels, of course). She loves to ride it around inside the house, and she and Daddy go on rides down the sidewalk after dinner. :) I'll have to upload a picture of her proudly riding her bike tomorrow. :)

Ok, enough from me. I'm heading off to bed. Have a great night, all!
