No, its not her birthday... nor is it Christmas, Easter, Valentines Day or any of the other gifty holidays. It's just a normal Thursday- BUT Maeve has had a really rough week of teething and fevers. She's hardly eaten anything and has been up every night for an hour or so just whining. FINALLY her teeth popped through last night! :) She is still fussy- but I took a look and her gums look pretty inflamed... ugh I hate teething. Anyways, Maeve (and I) have been eying this adorable HOT PINK shopping cart at "Toys R Us" for about a month now- its not like its super expensive or anything, but Ryan has seriuosly threatened to start chucking toys out the window if we come home with any more...oops. Unfortunately, today, I couldn't resist- I broke down and bought the shopping cart AND a few collections of food to go with it. I wasn't going to tell Ryan until he noticed it (it's a semi large toy so I didn't think it would take long...) and sure enough when he came home for lunch he saw it and gave me the "we have way too much" lecture. Ahhh well. Maeve has been happy as a clam "grocery shopping" all afternoon. And I PROMISED that I would spend my entire day tomorrow organizing and weeding out the toys we don't really use anymore (even though that's a tad bit pointless seeing that there is another baby on the way who will want to play with baby toys...). Anyhow, here are some pics of Maeve with her shopping cart.
Maeve's idea of shopping is throwing all the food out of the cart and onto the floor. Then she picks each piece up, one by one, and puts it back in the cart. I tried to set up a little mini "grocery store" on the table but she liked picking the food up off the floor better. :)
