Pictures are stacking up on me, especially because I finally put batteries in the real camera!! Brace yourselves for another picture heavy post.

In the last post I mentioned that Eden has been noticing that things "match." I caught her taking her shoes out of her closet (they are just thrown into a large basket) and pairing them. She had already dismantled two pairs by the time I got the camera:

After having blood drawn on Friday, we took her to the Kohl Children's Museum for a little fun. This is the only picture we snapped because there were about 200 kids running around like monkeys. The museum is only12 minutes away. We got a good deal on a membership so we'll be going back lots. It has a fake grocery store, daycare, water play area, etc, etc. Everything is interactive:

We are, in fact, totally spoiling our daughter, but at least we're doing it on a budget :)! That makes it ok, right? At Christmas I wanted to get Eden a few things for her babydoll. I settled on a few bottles and a dress (taking the naked baby with us everywhere seriously had to stop). I saw this stroller at walmart but the $15 price tag was too high. We found it yesterday on clearance for $2.50! She LOVES it:

Eden has looked so sweet lately. She's really becoming all toddler (remember this statement for the last picture). All the "baby" is going away and a sweet, tiny lady is emerging:

The grass briefly said hello (it's gone now btw) so we took the opportunity to play with one of her favorite toys:

When we got home tonight from an errand, Eden insisted (in the lovely way only a toddler knows how) she be allowed to wear her snowsuit. We lay it on the ground and she happily plops herself on top. I wasn't sure she knew what she was asking for (it can get hot in our apartment), but she seemed rather pleased!

Here is a quick snapshot Thomas took of Eden chillin with Sesame Street and a snack.

This is Eden's Valentine's Shirt. I think I mentioned I've been in a crafty mood. I found a plain t-shirt at Target for $2.50 and put some of my fabric paint to work using a freezer paper stencil:

And as previously mentioned, here is toddler Eden:


  1. oh sooo cute! she's getting so big!

  2. Hey Katie and Thomas! So loved catching up with you via your blog. The pictures are awesome. Eden is such a sweetheart. Sounds like you are adjusting well.
