Family Fun Night

The other night Elaine and I took a late afternoon nap.  It was on a day when Ben works until 8pm.  Elaine doesn’t usually get to see him on those days, so I decided she could stay up until Daddy got home.  She had a lot of energy, and we ended up playing together unti 10pm! 

Ben ate his dinner while we were playing.  Elaine really wanted a second helping of fried rice, so she took four little steps – all by herself! – to get over to Ben.  Then she tried to be a big girl and feed herself with the adult fork!

Then she decided that Mommy’s cup of water looked better than her sippy cup, so she helped herself.  She was doing pretty good until she tipped the cup too high.  She got a face, mouth, and nose full of water!  You should have seen the look of surprise!  Not to be deterred, she tried again.  In the end, she settled for sticking her hand into the cup to play in the water.

We finished the night off with cookies.  Still trying to act grown-up, Elaine took a whole cookie and nearly finished it off by herself!
