Play Date

On Friday Elliott went on a play date at Marissa's house. We had a yummy lunch and talked the talk. Cuteness was everywhere.

Inauguration Day Festivities

Some people relax after a long day of celebrating by smoking a cigar, but not Elliott, she prefers the good ol' binky.

Jolly Jumper

Elliott is sure growing up fast. I was just enamored with her cuteness today so I had Rachel take a picture of me with my daughter.

A not so big milestone took place tonight. Elliott started playing, rather than just sitting, in her jumper seat. I have been hoping that she would like the jumper seat because I am jealous of it because I want one for myself. Since I don't have the time to edit this movie is also long but you can fast forward if you get bored.

Not for the faint of heart

Elliott is starting to grow up so fast. She seems so big to us and is starting to gain more and more control of her little body. She has started to enjoy sitting in her yellow seat. I swear I can see her learning when she plays with her toys in that seat.

This video is 7:38 long and is not for the faint of baby heart (hence the post title).
This video is really geared towards grandmothers, particularly Grandma Sharon who doesn't get to see Elliott enough. Elliott really likes the bounciness of the mattress and can roll over on the mattress in addition to bouncing with her legs.

In other news: I have started school again as of the 5th of Jan and it is going well. It also explains the slow down in blog postings. I am also starting my search for an internship for the summer. I am a little anxious about the internship because it will provide much needed work experience towards a successful career switch after school.

Rachel is working one day a week and is well on her way to becoming licensed. Once she is licensed we can reevaluate her working situation.

We have been getting a lot of snow which is bad for motorcycle riding. I expect I won't really do any riding until April now.

Cinnamon Roll Saturday

Recently, I decided to make Cinnamon Rolls. In the Blanchard household that means I (Rachel) get the hankerin' for some deliciousness, get all the fixins' and then Jeremy makes it and I take all the credit. The same applies when I offer to host the family for Thanksgiving or Easter...I am not in the kitchen all the much at all :) Thanks Jer! I have got one sweet deal. Now check out the sweet treat below...if it counts for anything, I kneeded the dough!

Happy New Year!!!!

Happy New Year everybody.
Here is the photo of Elliott before we started torturing her by having a photo shoot. She looks so innocent and doey eyed.
Elliott was enjoying the New Year festivities and showing off by holding up her horn.
But Elliott got too excited and drank too much of the good stuff and regretted it in the end.
