A Little Bit of Colorado

A good friend of ours, Deb, decided to brave a visit to our crazy household.  She was an amazing help & all the girls took to her right away.  It was nice to have an extra pair of hands & have a walking partner.  Abi decided to try on all of Deb's clothes (good thing she has a great sense of humor eh?), and Jillian put on a few puppet shows.  
The BIG news is that Stella chose this time to finally give up her crib - or rather escape from her crib. So she now has a big girl bed & it has been . . . a challenge to get her to stay in her big girl bed.  Deb wanted to put her Super Nanny skills to the test & helped walk Stella back to her bed for about 1 1/2 hours each night for her entire stay here.  Normally I'd feel a bit guilty that a guest is helping train my child to stay in her big girl bed, but when you have 5 small kids - I was THRILLED for the help.  
Enjoy the pics & hopefully next post will be a picture of Stella sleeping soundly at bedtime.  Hey - don't laugh - miracles still happen.

Abi - helping the ducks cool off.

Have a great day Chica!
