Day 7 - Something Funny

Today's theme is something funny ...  I really wish I had my camera or the guts to take a picture of what I saw on Saturday.  It was pretty priceless.  Picture this: a young lady ... with a sombrero, a red clown nose, a loud red coat with random things sewed onto it (like balloons, ducks, and I can't remember all the other silly things) and a suitcase.  Is she going to the airport and actually traveling in this swell getup?  Will she be going to the hospital to cheer up the patients?  Does she have a guest appearance at a child's birthday party later on in the day?  Did she lose a bet and have to wear that outfit all day?  I don't know ... never will ... which is a real shame.  But man do I wish I had a picture of her.  

I did say I wanted to take pictures of the day ... so here are pictures of something funny from today.
This dashing young lad loves suits!  It's funny to me that a 2nd grader loves to dress sharp!  He wears them the majority of the week ... so funny!
My other sweet niece made me laugh over skype today ... she mimicked my cough, said byebye long before the conversation was over and points to things with her middle finger!  She is definitely a funny one ... constantly on the move ... sneaking up the computer screen trying to give me something or just get close to me.  I love that we can play over skype!  I sure do miss you, little one!
What funny things have you seen today??

NUK Magic Cup

Getting your little one to drink is not an easy task and switching from a bottle to sippy cups and then normal cups can be challenging. NUK has designed a new sippy cup. Finally a sippy cup that doesn't have little parts to wash! Check out what it's made out of:  The cup has three parts. A silicone part (the pink one) and two plastic parts.  Just pop the pink part into the turquoise ring and then screw it on the cup - DONE! Doesn't get much easier than that. And it doesn't matter where your little one puts their mouth, they can drink from it from any side!  It's a perfect fit for little hands. Although the tipping to actually drink is still a bit tricky and needs a little help from bigger hands, but once your little one is bigger this shouldn't be a problem anymore.  They say it's leak proof, which for the most part it is, however after turning over like the picture above, there is a little bit of water, but not much. And when it gets tossed on the floor, then…

Welcoming strangers into my home

For 16 weeks now, we have had a young refugee couple from Syria living with us. They have been married a little over a year and for the majority of that time have been separated from each other, since he made the journey to Austria alone and got everything in order so that she could come legally.
 Let me backtrack a bit and tell you how it all started. As the refugee crisis really started to explode here, facebook was buzzing with articles, videos, pictures, etc. of the situation. I read a lot. I saw a lot. I was moved. I was troubled. But what could I do? I had a three year old and one year old at home.
 ... I could teach some German. But when? ... I could donate clothes and other items that were needed. But that didn't seem like enough. ... I could give money. But I wanted something more tangible. 
I would put my youngest to bed and during those days, she needed lots of TLC in order to get to sleep. I kept thinking about the refugees and how they didn't have a home. I kept hea…

10 Months

Baby Z is ten months today.  She's moving into toddlerhood and out of hoo....She's starting to have her own little will and get angry when things don't go her way.  She's realized she can make us laugh.  She loves watching little kids and squeals with delight.  Stroller rides are a favorite and also nice for a little snooze at times.  Cheerios are another favorite {she's a great eater, just not a good drinker}.  Sleeping through the night is almost an everyday occurrence {PTL!}!  Her sleeping postions are always quite never know how you will find her.  She's incredibly curious and loves getting into things {empty boxes, laundry baskets, bags, etc is highly entertaining}.  If a cellphone or computer are somewhere near her, she doesn't waste any time getting to them.  She has so much energy.  Naps are kept short, often a half hour, if I'm lucky an hour. 

I'm so thankful for this sweet, little, energy bundle.  I look forwar…
