1. Gone are the days of the toothless baby grin. Bria sprouted her first two teeth last Friday. If my memory serves me correctly, she's about a month and a half ahead of her sisters in the tooth arena. They're not fully erupted yet, but they've definitely broken through the gums. It explains the manic chewing that's been going on for the past few weeks. Thankfully there's been no biting. I'm praying it stays that way.

3. This week was Spirit Week at Alaina's school. Tuesday was Career Day, and she got it in her head that she wanted to be Batman. I emailed the school and they put the kibosh on that, so she chose to go as a fire chief instead. Upon further conversation, I think she wanted to be Batman because that is the only costume we have (besides princess stuff.) But Grammy had a fireman's coat and hat, and Alaina's daddy was kind enough to go retrieve it so she could wear it on Tuesday. (Side Note: I love my original girl! Quite a few of the other girls went dressed as veterinarians. Alaina was the only girl fireman.) Wednesday was PJ day, which she thoroughly enjoyed. Thursday was Twin Day, and since she didn't have a twin at school, her daddy gamely dressed like her so she could tell everyone that he was her twin. And Friday was Old MacDonald day, and she dressed like the cutest farm girl we've ever seen. It was a fun week.

5. We had another mouse problem this week. Dirty little booger was leaving poop on my dining room table. More than once. It took us a few days to catch him, but this morning we finally did. Lee should be so grateful that a.) he caught it today and b.) we don't have the adoption fees needed in our budget this month. Because I spent many minutes looking online at various cats for our home. We could swing the food/litter/occasional vet visit in our budget, but not the initial start up costs of a cat. But if we hadn't caught the mouse I would have done some creative accounting to make that happen. Next time he might not be so lucky.
That's a wrap!
