Elizabeth is walking!! She took her first unassisted steps on Thursday night and aww, it was so adorable! She walked to me – took five or six steps with no problem. :) At ten months old, she is our youngest to be walking; the other three were all twelve months. Perhaps she’s just trying to catch up with them. ;) Oh, and she’s getting two more teeth at the moment.
Have I mentioned that she is getting into everything? Our living room and dining room are becoming so sparse of décor, lol. Library books can no longer be on low shelves, baskets with Samuel’s toys had to be put in his bedroom instead of under the tables next to the entertainment center, furniture has had to be shifted to block electrical outlets… she has turned our living space upside down, lol. But what a sweetie, totally worth it!
This was at the zoo on Wednesday. We had a great time! Here’s Maggie’s take on it, if you want to see more pics of her and Joshua. :)
We went out yesterday morning for me to (sadly) return my amazing primer to Ulta. I also returned my new powder to WalMart; it was Rimmel’s Stay Matte pressed powder and I loved that stuff!! But as I am evaluating cosmetic ingredients, I am getting quite discouraged. It seems that there are VERY few laws and restrictions in place for personal care items and companies can call their products “natural,” “organic,” and “pure” for no good reason. More on my research to come, but suffice it to say that things are not looking good and I am definitely not destined to be a beauty blogger. :/ Well, unless I become an advocate for natural beauty and healthy cosmetics…That’s a distinct possibility.
To close on a happier note, I made a new dinner this week. :) Instead of boiling water on the stove and making ravioli that way, I made a ravioli bake and it was really good! We all enjoyed it. I followed these directions.
Are there any new recipes you’ve tried and really liked lately?
