Here's Lydia with her first somewhat successful attempt at using chopsticks. She was at a disadvantage as she was trying to pick up noodles. HA! If I had been more thoughtful, I would've made something she could just stab and pop in her mouth!
Lydia and I stayed at home on President's day. It was a much-needed day after working all weekend, especially as I had about five loads of laundry! I also really wanted to spend the day with Lydia. We painted, pedaled around the neighborhood, talked about how we live on Earth and how Mercury is far too hot (she's been talking about planets lately, can't you tell?). Then I spent the afternoon trying to get her to take a nap.
I turned on the telly expecting her to be completely bored and to fall asleep except she was as riveted by Hoarders: Buried Alive as I was! I found myself completely fascinated with these people whose houses are full from floor to ceiling with stuff. Then I looked around my own house; the dining room table has been in the living room for a month, the floors in the dining room are *almost* finished, and there are toys everywhere! We've got to get this house in order!
