Contrary to what these pictures suggest, they were actually pretty unimpressed. Clara drank a little bit before losing interest. Colby drank a sip or two, looked highly offended, and then threw his sippy cup on the ground. We tried again later that day and again on Sunday with the same results. We'll see how it goes at daycare this week… the teachers are some kind of miracle workers so I won't be surprised if they each down a whole cup full today!
Another first happened this weekend when I made an impulse purchase that made me feel both proud and ashamed all at the same time: I bought a smocked dress for Clara. I'm proud because it is quite possibly the cutest dress that was ever made. I'm ashamed because I paid full price for it and it was not cheap. But I really just couldn't help myself:
Other than that, we spent most of the weekend playing around the house and yes, you guessed it, preparing for the upcoming birthday party! There was much planning and crafting to do and Brian even got to bust out some power tools and put his wood-working skills to the test. Don't worry- I'll be sure to show you the finished products when all is said and done.
