Coke for breakfast & brownies for dinner...

I've started asking Amelia what she wants for breakfast each morning. A lot of times she'll say "toe" (toast) or "wa" (waffle). I'm just trying to teach her to tell me what she wants and this is one of the ways we're working on that. I asked her yesterday morning what she wanted for breakfast and she went straight to the pantry. And pulled out the coke. She did not get coke for breakfast but it sure was funny.



She has also learned how to use the remote. She will point it at the TV and turn it off and on or turn the volume up and down. Yesterday I was in the kitchen and heard the channel change. I went into the living to find The Wiggles on the TV and Amelia sitting on the couch with the remote in her hand. Grinning from ear to ear.



I decided to try banana as a snack again yesterday. She won't eat it if I cut it up, so I decided to just peel back the banana and hand it to her. She took a few bites but still isn't crazy about it. If you couldn't tell by her face.



I made frito chili pie for dinner last night. I needed something that I could make up and leave for Alex because I had LG last night. Time with my girlfriends...it's always a good time. I didn't get home until almost midnight and then didn't get to sleep until 2am. I knew that Starbucks so late wasn't a good idea!



Alex emailed me this pic before he put Amelia to bed. He had just given her a bath. Oh the sweetness. One of the things I told him when heading out the door at 6pm was that Amelia had eaten an early dinner but might want a little something more before bedtime. I gave him some ideas of what to give her and said, "just no snacks." He told me this morning that he fed Amelia brownies before bedtime because she wouldn't take anything that I suggested. I laughed so hard! She will always look forward to Mama being gone with Daddy feeding her stuff like that! No wonder she has a grin on her face in this pic.



Amelia and I have to run some errands today. I'm not looking forward to it. People are going to be crazy at the store because they're predicting almost 8" of snow tomorrow night. I just need to get some meat and sides for dinner for the rest of the week. We're running low. We have bread and milk so I won't have to arm wrestle anyone for the last loaf. ;)

I hope you're having a blessed week!

Love to all,

Thats so funny about the brownies! Daddies always know how to spoil our girls. Lauren is the same way with bananas. If I cut it up, she won't eat it. She has to munch on the whole thing. Silly girls. She didnt like them for the longest time but will now eat them.

Her on the couch with the remote control cracks me up. Smart girl!

And, I love that Alex gave her brownies. So funny!

If Alex is anything like Jared, he will find a snack that he and Amelia will share as part of their special bonding time together. Jared does that with peanuts and ice cream (not together) with the girls. :)

Amelia is so funny.... I love her!

Avery Kate has just started eating "Wa wa" (waffles) for breakfast and she goes to the freezer every morning asking for them!!! She loves them! Aren't they hilarious right now?!?!? Sweet, sweet girls! They totally have their daddies wrapped around those little fingers!

You are right about that. I can see Jason doing the same thing with Drake.

Hope your trip to the store went well. It sounds like our adventures last Monday. There were only 4 loaves of bread left when I got to the store that night and many places were out of milk. We ended up with 13".

Coke and Brownies sounds wonderful. All I want to do since we are stuck in the house with all the snow is eat and eat and eat.

What a stinker daddy is! How funny! Their minds sure do work totally differently than ours, eh? Some of the things J does with L make me want to roll over in fits of laughter.
