Day 19: Something You Hate To Do

I LOVE my Chili chinchilla but I HATE to swap out the fleece mats in her cage. Each velcro tab has to be pulled thru the bars and stick the two sides together. My fingers hurt after this job - and it has to be done every other day.

Day 16: Something New

We tried a new activity from pinterest today. It's flour and baby oil. It ends up having a consistency similar to beach sand. It feels pretty cool, but Jillian got a little too excited and threw it all over the kitchen. The recipe is 4 cups of flour to 1 cup of baby oil, but I ended up using a whole bag of flour and a whole bottle of baby oil.

Day 13: Blue

The only "real" snow of the winter thus far, and it lasted less than 24 hours. Jillian discovered how much she LOVES the snow and the sled and ever since has been talking about the "snowy" non-stop.

The theme of Jillian's 2nd birthday party is "The Very Hungry Caterpillar." As a result, we've been reading this book a lot!

Day 5: 10 am

At 10 am today Jillian was eating her tortilla chip breakfast (she refused everything else and only ended up eating 2 chips before kicking the bowl onto the floor) and pouting because I took the iphone from her because she had already spent an hour watching youtube videos.

Day 4: A Stranger

I don't know this woman (thus the theme, "a stranger") but this particular butterfly really liked her - kept landing on her and hovering just above her head at the Butterfly House today.

Day 3: Hands

I love how this challenge gives me a chance to take some "in the moment" photos that I might not otherwise pull the camera out for. Here are my sweetie's hands, working the iphone. Today she discovered the youtube app and is browsing thru the list of related videos to find more mario videos to watch.

Day 2: Words

Another beautiful day in February, so we took a trip to the zoo. This is on the old water fountain between the train station and lakeside cafe. I love the vintageness of this piece and that it still exists and hasn't been torn out for something new.

Day 1: Your View Today

How awesome is it to have a high of 61 on February 1 in St. Louis?! We went for a walk at lunchtime with daddy at the Phantom Forest Conservation Area in Des Peres. My heart just melts when I see daddy and daughter share little bonding moments like this.
