This weekend, we got a little sneak peak at Fall...Fall is my absolute favorite season, so I tried to spend as much time as I could outdoors with the pumpkin. We went shopping, made a visit to "Mimi" at Von Maur, Mimi and Papa dropped in to take the pumpkin for a stroller ride, we visited Grandpa, and took lots of walks. It was so chilly, I even tried out her JJ Cole Car Seat Fleecy. I later, of course, had to remove it because the poor thing started sweating (calm down, Mom, it's not quite that cold out, yet!). But, I got a quick snap shot of the pumpkin in it, with "little Bunny Foo Foo." I think the pumpkin is excited for fall too!
One more snuggled in her blankee.
"Nikolina! What have I told you?!! Little girls do not lick their fingers!!!
Badeeeeb, Badeeeeb!! That's all Folks!
We started with this...
and moved to this!
We tried some squash today!!, but we were none too thrilled with it. (Our neighbor advised we start with the yellow vegetables over the green), but Nikolina let me know that she was not having any squash vegetables--no, no, none of it!! I had the food ready, spoon in hand, and she started getting all excited and shaking her fists, and moving about in her chair, and taking these little excited breaths, and then, I put a spoonful in her mouth... and she made the most horrible face, and tried desperately to remove any last remnants of the squash from her mouth. It really broke my heart to see that she disliked it so. I was kind of excited to move her on to something new, but it obviously is not going to be squash! I thought really how bad could it be, and took a little taste myself...she was watching me very closely, so I smiled and said, "Mmmmm, " through clenched jaws---I was really trying to hold back a very loud, Eeeeeeeeewwwwwwwww!!! But I couldn't let her know that. She seemed to warm to it again after my "positive" reaction, and I tried giving her a little bit. But, she just didn't buy what I was selling today. She still wasn't having it. I made a "Humph" sound and turned to go get her some rice cereal instead (I knew she wouldn't be reaching for it again, so I figured it was safe on the counter). I started to get a feeling like I should check on her, so I turned around, and out of the corner of my eye, I saw her grab the container and fling it, just in case I didn't get the message the first time--then she proceeded to start playing with her feet, and now we had "squash feet."
It was the Bears first Sunday Game this weekend!!!
Nikolina actually cheered immediately after the Bears scored a touchdown, all by herself!!!
Do we have a Bears fan in the making, future NFL Cheerleader, perhaps...
Why do I have a bad feeling about this...?
I just can't condone this underage drinking, I'll have no part of it-Dad!
