Getting Back to a Routine

Since we've been home for almost a month now we've been trying to get back into our regular routine - plus one new routine for Madeleine. Here are some pictures of what we've been up to.

Isabelle is still enjoying preschool... ...and begs to wear a dress everyday...
...for maximum twirl potential.
She got to be snack girl again right when her class was studying caterpillars and butterflies so this is what she took:
Butterfly Pretzels (with cream cheese and mini m & m's)
Caterpillar Cocoons (miniature lemon poppyseed muffins with a powdered sugar glaze, rolled in coconut)
Madeleine has a very different sort of schedule as you'll see here. It consists of:





Poor Madeleine has also had a terrible time getting her little tummy on a routine. I won't go into embarrassing details (she'll read this someday and hate me) but she required the help of some prunes the other day. She is not on solid foods yet but we were given the go-ahead to let her have a bit of the regularizing powers of purple mush. Here she is getting a taste of yummy goodness for the first time.
She was a little unsure at first but then she practically sucked my finger off! If you turn up the volume you can even hear the sucking. :)

Peek-A-Boo is a favorite game at our house.
