Laurel: loving the Viewmaster, playing video games and eating well.

We spent some time looking in the toy aisle at Walgreens after Laurel picked out her new sunglasses on Monday. She asked for more ViewMaster reels but she'd chewed on three of the reels we'd bought last October, so I replied she wasn't getting more until she shows me she won't put them in her mouth. I thought that was the end of it until earlier this morning, when she brought me her empty ViewMaster viewer and asked, "Can we get more now? I won't chew them!" We'll see how that goes.

As expected with the vast amounts of time her biological dad has spent playing video games, she loves the Atari paddle with TV games, although I'm not sure she's really playing per se, just having fun and periodically shouting "I sore!" (not a typo, she's not enunciating the 'c' in 'score') and "Go Laurel!"

I heated up some frozen mini bread bowls with spinach dip we picked up at Wal-Mart awhile back for lunch today. I was pleasantly surprised to find they were like crack in a cream puff -- I easily polished off six and would have had the other two if Laurel hadn't already eaten them. After that she wanted a PBJ and a hard-boiled egg with fruit juice, so I think she's getting the hang of healthy eating habits.
