Today one of Leia's friends came over. His name is Caleb. We met his parents in child birth class before they were born. Both their Daddys enjoy playing paintball. Leia and Caleb had a lot of fun playing outside, playing with Leia's toys and watching movies.

Tonight we went to a craw fish boil with our Sunday School class. Unfortunately, half way thru a Church child care worker called and said Leia was sick. So, we did not get to eat our whole meal or visit with many of our friends.

Leia is more important, of course, so we went to pick up the kids. She had an upset tummy, throwing up and a temperature. We went to the pharmacy and got her some medicine. When we got home she wanted to go straight to bed. She and Daddy will stay home from church tomorrow.

Chloe is back to normal though. She did not run another fever after last night and is back to her usual self.

We are slowly but surely having our house re-carpeted. Now we have the living room, master bedroom and hallway completed. It had made a huge difference. Tomorrow I plan to wash the walls and rehang all the photographs and decorations before returning the furniture to the bedroom.

Leia got to see Justin again today. Jason, his dad, is the one who is doing our carpet. His wife is my good friend Marilyn. Everything Justin does amuses Leia. She gets him in trouble a lot because he is always being mischievious to entertain her.

Chloe ran a fever today. She may be teething. We gave her some Tylenol and a sponge bath and it came down. She has also been hungry a lot lately. She must be going through a growing spurt.

At nearly 2 1/2 years old, Leia bled for the first time. She tripped on her shoes in the driveway and scraped her knees. I cleaned them and one kept bleeding. I put on some antibiodic ointment and a huge bandaid on each knee. I think I hurt more than she did. She is surviving just fine.

Chloe has discovered her toes. The weather is starting to get warm and she has been going barefoot. She can suck on her toes. It is so cute.

Daylight savings time is great. Except on rainy days. We had planned to spend some time outside today. Leia loves going to the park. Instead we painted, played with play dough and made a craft.

I made a wonderful dinner tonight: a soufle, glazed carrots and cheese scones. I have found that I really enjoy cooking fancy meals and baked goods. Chloe paciently waited to be fed while I was preparing the meal. She is a sweet baby. Her smiles light up my days!

Leia loves going to church. She asks if she can go everyday. I guess to a 2 year old church is a big party with all your friends. She used to go to daycare at church, so she did go 6 days a week. And, she loves to pray! All she says is "God is Great, Amen." But that is not bad. When I am done praying she will say "Mommy, pray more." So adorable!

In between church and Sunday School is a good chance to nurse baby Chloe. Today we saw a new friend and his Mommy in the nursery. Hopefully they will become good friends. Baby burps are so cute. It is the only time people actually cheer whey you belch. And the bigger the better!
