A day in the life of Jakob and Sarah...again
I know I've used this title before, but I'm not really creative - so here is what the kids are up to!
Jakob has been building these really elaborate structures that he calls "Dinosaur Land", he places dinosaurs in different little openings or "caves" and pretends that some dinosaurs are "Grandma, Grandpa, Uncle, Mommy, Daddy, Brother, Sister etc." and that they need to "hide from the bad guys".
This is a picture of the beginning of his "Dinosaur Land". He starts them in the evening and then adds on to them in the morning and so on. They eventually cover quite a bit of area on our living room floor, then get picked up by myself when I need to vacuum (which is quite often as Roxy is shedding like a beast)!
Sarah is eating a lot of baby foods now, loves sweet potatoes, carrots, apples, and bananas. She had a horrific reaction to peas the first time I gave them to her (2 weeks ago), but is able to take about 4 bites of them before refusing - gotta get something green in her! I just gave her a teething biscuit the other night (Oh yeah, teething has started) and she went nuts on it, but they are sooooo messy, so she only gets them in her highchair in the evening, before bathtime. She also is practicing eye/hand/mouth coordination with those Gerber disolvable puffs.
These pics were taken this evening, you can see the biter biscuit residue, sweet potato and rice cereal mix on the face, and the determination to keep the food and spoon in her mouth!!
