Sanaa is still sick. She seems okay at times, but she's still congested and has a horrible cough. We're staying home from church this morning which is a bummer since Sundays are typically the only day I really get to catch up with friends. But I know that as a parent if a child showed up at church sounding like Sanaa does I would be wondering why in the world that parent didn't keep their kid at home. So we'll just spend the morning in pjs and watch Curious George.
Despite Sanaa being sick we've had some fun this weekend. We've been trying to get Layla to take a bottle and even Sanaa has been getting in on the action. Sanaa put her bracelets in a bottle, shook the bottle, and then "fed" Layla.
Day 1: Making Christmas presents.
I'm going to spoil the surprise for my dad because at this point I'm not sure he'll be receiving his hand painted bird house. Sanaa has LOVED painting the bird house and keeps adding to it. She's been working on the birdhouse all weekend. I think I may have to buy a second one so that we can keep one and send the second to my dad. In fact I asked Sanaa if I could send this one to grandpa and she said, "No thanks." Sorry dad.
Day 2: painting the birdhouse some more.
Day 3: the birdhouse still needed some more work done on it.
Saturday since Nate had off we put up our Christmas tree. We decided this year to make our tree primarily red and white/silver. We really like how it turned out. Layla was also fascinated by our tree.
Bath time! Too save time I gave Sanaa a bath and then had Nate hold Layla in the bath so I could wash her. The girls really enjoyed it. Layla loved being with Sanaa and Sanaa had fun washing Layla. I might have to find one of those infant bath seats for Layla and then the girls can take a bath together more often.
Our tree. I took this shot without the flash, so that's why it's so dark. When I used the flash it didn't turn out so well.
