Rachel's favorites right now

1. She loves to "play outside to play!"
2. eating popcorn
3. taking things from her sister
4. projects especially if they involve paint
5. the song "She Was the Prize" by Gaelic Storm

It's hard to pick a top 5 because Rachel is so passionate about so much. She takes swimming and gymnastics lessons, talks highly of her friends from playgroup, and is lucky enough to have Megan come over on Wednesdays. She likes to do Yoga with me, loves to help around the house, and loves pancakes almost as much as her daddy does. She's really a special girl.

things I wouldn't want to parent my 5 month old without

1. my parents - They've been a huge help with both kids and housework too. Thanks Mom and Dad!
2. Family Resources - I love that I can get a break on Tuesdays and Fridays.
3. my washer and drier - diapers, diapers, diapers
4. lanolin - for her chapped little thumbs
5. my sling - now that Julia is working on some teeth she needs more attention and cuddles.
