Girls and Dolls (and olives)

After nap today, Clara asked us to bring her "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 babies!" So Elena and Christina went downstairs to get an assortment, and we presented her with the 10. She and Elena immediately wanted to get settled in on the couch with their babies.

Here's Clara and her United Nations of dolls (these are three of her four favorites at the moment - far left if Baby Blue, middle is Baby Zoe, and far right is Baby M&M (she was originally named Emily, but Clara has gone through a recent re-naming of that particular doll). Her missing favorite is the Raggedy Ann Christina's mom made when Christina was young - she was further down on the couch. Clara calls her "Mommy Baby" - she loves it way more than the Raggedy Ann Christina made for Clara.
But, Elena is appreciative of the Raggedy Ann Christina made for her! This and one other doll (Baby Pink) are the only ones she really plays with. Here, Steve sat the doll on her lap, then put the doll's arm behind Elena's head - at one point Elena wouldn't move a muscle because she loved that her doll was "hugging" her and she didn't want to jostle it away!

We're still on and off here with feeling well - to keep morale high, Steve brought up some huge (colossal!) olives for the girls to wear/eat.

Here's hoping for a better week than last week! We're hoping to finally kick this bug and get back to normal.
