Rose took a break to check out her new indestructible book from Great Grandma Carol. Skeptical of the "unrippable" claim, Rose really gave the book a run for its money (now, who does that sound like?). But the book held up and continues to be one of Rose's favorites right now.
After a good read, Rose threw a tupperware party in the kitchen.
Having been granted access to the tupperware drawer, Rose entertained herself (and her parents) for quite a while - until the inevitable finger smash when she accidentally shut the drawer with her hand inside. Try as we might to not make a big deal about a small harm, Trevor and I both let out audible gasps at the swift and definitive clunk with which the drawer closed. There was a moment of silence as all three of us held our breath, shattered quickly of course by Rose's loud, big tears. She was easily comforted with a cuddle, relocation and a new toy. But she has yet to re-visit the drawer.
After all that partying, Rose was ready for a rest. A weekend wouldn't be complete without a nap with Papa.
On Sunday, Rose decided we were all going to sleep in until 8am for the second day in a row. Thank you Rose! After we woke, Trevor started us out with a yummy breakfast - french toast with peanut butter for me and a scrambled egg yolk for Rose. Rose loves eggs! After breakfast, inspired by the 60 degree weather, the three of us made it out for a rare family run. That evening, Grandma Kathy came over to watch Rose while Trevor and I enjoyed an adult night out for one of our holiday events. We left looking very seasonal in our red and green.
Tomorrow is Rose's nine month check-up. Nine months! I'm excited to see the new stats for our little munchkin. Stay tuned....
