More Growin' Up

Another milestone in growing up is graduating from eating off the table top to an actual plate. No, my kids still have not mastered spoons or forks but we did accomplish something big last night. BOTH kids ate at the table, kept their plates and mats on the table (with no dumping of the food onto the floor) and managed to keep their feeding of Allea (the dog) to a minimum! If we could only do so well in restaurants, we would probably have a lot more wait staff as our friends!

As you can see, the sippy cups weren't as fortunate.

We have also had to switch to the booster seats. One problem with having tiny little petite kids is that they can shimmy out of anything...especially highchairs. The booster seats have better straps that tighten and can control my little escape artists. I made the switch this weekend after I caught Keaton standing on top of his highchair tray three times in one meal, while Miss El was climbing from her highchair to his to steal his cheese (the girl is obsessed)! So my beautiful wooden highchairs sit empty while the big plastic boosters take over.

I also got my new lens yesterday so lots 'o pics will be coming.

Here are some playing tonight in the tub. (Elliot's new favorite game is to kiss herself (or that pretty baby) in the reflection!)
