The White Shoe

Emilio has been in love with this pair of white infant shoes for a few months. I thought for sure this obsession would last a long time.
However as of late, he hasn't really played with them. I thought this was the perfect opportunity to be rid of them forever. I took the shoes, and placed them in my room on my dresser to be put away with the baby stuff I save.
About a week later, I notice him all of a sudden throw himself onto his belly, and do the wounded soldier crawl in a hurry towards something. I got down on the floor to see exactly what it was he was so determined to get. What was it? You guessed it,his little white shoe! So now, a week later the shoes have made it back with his toys to be played with. It doesn't matter what's with his toys, when he sees those shoes, he gets crazy.

Happy Bean

This is my Bean every morning. Just as happy as ever.
Yeah, and that's me in the morning... enough said.

My little helper

Every night after dinner we do what we call our 15 min. pick up.
Joey yells excitedly "Ok everybody, it's time for our 15 minute pick up. Everybody get to your stations!"
Joey runs in the kitchen to clean the dinner dishes. My job was to clear and clean the table, and Amiyah, well we used this opportunity to get her excited about picking up the toys in her room.

The next night, even before Joey could say a word, she ran in the kitchen and turned the water on to start doing the dishes. After watching a couple of plates go to the strainer with food still on it, we thanked her for her help, and Joey took over. She wasn't to happy with that. So she ran to the table, quickly (before I got there) sprayed cleaner on it, and wiped it clean. Joey and I looked at each other and laughed. We hope she's this eager at 15, when doing the dinner dishes will be her permanent job. Haha!

This is Amiyah with her turkey she made in art class.

Dress Up

Amiyah was having a great time dressing up. While sitting at my desk, I heard my dresser drawers being opened. When I went in the room she had my scarf on her head, and she was putting Joey's socks on.
I told her she looked like Aunt Jemima.
