Elizabeth opened the case for Caroline's extra glasses, put them on, and ran to the bathroom to have a look in the mirror.

Potty Play

It's pretty much just for fun at this point, though we have managed to catch one poop and several pees.

School Lunch

Elizabeth and I went to Caroline's school for lunch today. Elizabeth was a fun toy for the kids in the class. She wanted to join some older kids in a line in the hallway rather than come home with me, though.

Hair Band Warning

Little Miss Elizabeth gave mommy quite a scare as we drove from my dad's to my aunt's lake camp for day two of the family reunion. I had put a tiny rubber hair band in her bangs that morning. As we drove, she started crying in the backseat. I looked back and she was pointing to her eye, crying "Eye!" with it squinted shut. I wiped at her eye, thinking the white I saw was eye icky, but then noticed there was a bit of the rubber band poking out under her eyelid. I tried to get to it but she was fighting me. I yelled for John to pull over and help me. He jumped out and I held her arms while he pulled the rubber band out. Her vision does not seem affected, but I think her eye looks a bit dark underneath now. I'm strongly considering cutting her bangs and doing without the bang sprout look now.

Playing in the sand

Some of the kiddos escaped the family reunion for a bit to play in the lake. Elizabeth enjoyed the sand.

Jingle Bells

Elizabeth likes to choose her own hair accessories now. My strategy is that I put in the bow/barette of my choice. Then I put in her choice more loosely. She ends up pulling it out within a few minutes of play and we are left with just my bow choice (if any.)
