Charlie and Lily also turned some Us into umbrellas. I had plans to made some Vs into vases as well, and that project started by having them color and stamp some paper. I was so pleased with how well they did coloring and stamping all on their own that I just hung their pictures on the fridge and scrapped the vases ;) I think I've mentioned before that Charlie and Lily are very picky with food. They definitely have some texture issues - anything rubbery or slimy is unacceptable. They won't eat most fresh fruits or veggies (we buy them freeze dried) and spit out pasta the second it hits their tongue. They've also refused pizza in the past, I think because of the mozzarella cheese. The other night Joe and I got takeout for dinner so I decided to try pizza with Charlie and Lily again. I got them a slice of Sicilian, thinking that the thicker crust would counteract the texture of the mozzarella, and it worked. They loved their pizza!
One of Charlie and Lily's new favorite activities is pushing their play kitchen around the room. Joe and I will often return to the room to find the doorway blocked.
The other morning Lily randomly woke up before Charlie (this almost never happens). She enjoyed the time with Roy, chilling on the couch watching Sesame Street.
On Wednesday we had some excitement. Since we moved into our townhouse in December our bathtub has been draining super slow. We told our landlady and on Wednesday she brought a plumber over to look at it. The plumber decided to snake the drain, saying (famous last words) "There's a chance the pipes could break, but that almost never happens." So...guess what happened? Our pipes broke! I was feeding Charlie and Lily lunch when water started seeping through our dining room ceiling. Yikes! They had to cut through the ceiling to replace the pipe and now the entire ceiling needs to be torn down and put back up because of the water damage. All I can say is thank goodness we rent and don't have to pay to fix this mess!
