It's been too cold to do much outside so we've been entertaining ourselves inside. We did get out to IKEA last week, which is always fun. I never knew they had bottle warmers! That place is so kid-friendly. It was a good family outing. We bought a t.v. cabinet for the new t.v. we ordered for the playroom. We wanted the t.v. so that we could move the Wii to the playroom and out of the family room. 'Wii' have been using it a lot. So, we went to IKEA because they have great furniture for a great price. They also have unique furniture and we needed a locked t.v. cabinet because of Emily.
Emily has a DVD obsession. I call her a DVDaholic. She loves to open them all up, take the DVD's out, watch them, put them places...you name it. I used to keep them in a basket on the t.v. stand but the DVD's were getting all scratched up because of her fondness for them. Now, if I leave some DVD's out and she gains access to them, she falls off the wagon. Her eyes get wide and she can't get to them quick enough. Before I know it, she has the DVD case open and is walking around the house with the DVD. I think she needs a 12-step program.
So anyway, back to the new playroom set-up. It's great. We found matching DVD cabinets, which we put on the side of the t.v. cabinet and will keep all of the Wii games and kids' DVD's in them. They have openings for photo's on the front, which is really cool and they lock too! Connor has designated himself in charge of the keys. There are two sets and he makes sure to keep them high enough so that they are out of Emily's reach. He is taking his job very seriously. Here he is putting the Wii and t.v. remotes away.
Camryn is learning how to sit on her own. If she stays centered, she can last pretty long. It's when she leans to the left or right to grab something that she falls. I'd say between now and the next 3 weeks she'll get the hang of it.
This is a picture of Emily's new fake cry. Her fake cry, which you really have to hear to appreciate, has been a new thing for her over the past week or so.
And last but not least...
We've been missing a Little Einsteins DVD for some time now and had the idea this week to finally look for it under the couch. Well, we found that and more!
This is everything we found: a kitchen utencil, a DVD without the case, a DVD case without the DVD, 4 cat toys, a domino, part of a microphone stand, two drumsticks, 3 coasters, instructions to a card game, the blue flower Magna Doodle magnet, Sally from CARS the movie, a bouncy ball, a guitar pick, a ball of DVD wrapper trash, a marble, a blue Trouble game piece, and some yellow plastic thing that Carl said was part of a toy but I can't figure out what it goes with. Oh, and not pictured, a Gerber puff that Emily ate as soon as she saw it.
