We had a little Playdoh Playdate today since it's been a little cold and rainy. Logan was amazing - the kitchen set he got for Christmas came with little "recipe cards" that have pictures of food to make. He picked a card and made a little salad - just like the picture! Okay, so maybe it was just wads of playdoh stuck together - but they were at least the same COLORS as the ones in the picture and you could tell that he was deliberately trying to make a yummy salad for Mommy! He was also very proud of his "bug" that he made with the set from Grandma Hughes. (See Pic #2). Pic #4 shows Sterling, Logan and Hailey playing in Kailey's gym that I made into a "hideout" by putting a blanket over them. I had just pulled the blanket off when I took the picture. It's not as in focus as I would like, but the blurry smiles tell the story just as well. They had fun playing in that little space for much longer than you would expect of 2-3 year olds.
Okay, so maybe I put up too many pictures of Kailey, but I just think she is the most adorable baby I've ever met! She's almost 7 months now, and to the point where she can sit up very well on her own. The only problem is that even if you put her in one place, she doesn't stay there long as she is so interested in the world around her. She can't crawl yet (thank goodness) but she somehow scoots or rolls or army crawls her way all around the living room floor.
This entry is for all of us out there who wonder what in the heck Jeramy does in the "lab" this is what it looks like! No little white mice, but still a very complicated maze of optics (that's physics talk for mirrors and lenses). When you see it in person, it is very impressive. Every day I wonder how in the world he keeps all these little parts straight, but I guess if it's your passion and your ticket to a PhD, you learn to pay attention!
