Christina is doing very well on her tummy now. (Anyone think she’s looking a little more like Dave’s side lately?)
Speaking of tummy, I successfully made a batch of yogurt! I am really excited. I’m planning to do this one or two times a week (depending on how fast we go through it). It’s really easy, total prep is about 20 minutes and for the rest, it just requires that you be around to monitor the temperature and switch to the fridge when it’s done. I mistakenly started it too late in the day (8pm) and ended up having to get up at 2 am to refrigerate it after the incubation time was up, but next time I will start it earlier!
Quick kid-news from yesterday, under the heading of “Never the Same Thing Twice,” the girls conspired (aack! conspiracy!) to get the jar of coffee beans, bring it into the powder room, drop most of them on the floor, chew up the rest, and then spit the chewed-up coffee beans on my mattress cover. Yeah. You can’t really make this stuff up.
Late Breaking News: I had to stifle a laugh, even though I was so mad that they ruined the only loaf of bread we had for the week. I had just taken it out of the freezer to thaw and sat down to nurse the baby. (I feel like it’s either, starve Christina, or constantly be surprised at what happens while she eats!) Naturally, this was only minutes after cleaning the floor.
Jireh was taking bites out of a chunk of bread composed of 4 or 5 slices frozen together,
while Miriam was ripping up the rest of the loaf into my centerpiece bowl.
I guess I won’t have any shortage of breadcrumbs this week.
