Having fun

3 ounces.

We are trying to fatten Lilly up so we can put her in a forward-facing car seat. Also the fact she is in the 15th percentile for weight is a good reason to try to fatten her up.

YOu would think in a family like ours -- we weigh as much as the entire population of Denmark -- we could fatten a child up properly. Nope.

My theory is that she doesn't eat food, she throws it, mashes it, spreads it out and sits on it in her highchair. When you feed Lilly, you strip her down, put on a diaper, wrap her -- and the kitchen -- in blue tarp and watch the show. It's like going to a Gallagher comedy show.

Last night Violet came in our room at 4 am and said she was scared. Wanted to sleep with us. Sleep turned into playing mermaids on Mommy's head. When Violet woke me up again at 7 this morning, Mommy was in Violet's room sleeping. Violet had made a bed in the hall, and it was snowing.

Yes, March 9 and snowing. I am debating as to whether I should make the run to Mount Angel today or not... might wait to later.
