Ciara turned 31 last Tuesday. I was going to be out of town this weekend so we just did a really small thing Tuesday night. We went to Red Lobster so Ciara could have some crabs and then we went home and had cake. Not too exciting but I think she enjoyed it:)

Last night we went out for Ethiopian food. It was a craving that I developed when I was pregnant with Lexi. I made Ciara take me for lunch probably five or six times in the last couple months of the pregnancy. We hadn't been since she was born, so I was really excited.
Ciara is far less cautious with what she lets Lexi eat, especially when I'm not around, but sometimes even when I'm sitting right there. She let her try the Inerja (the "bread" you eat the meal with), with some of the mild sauce on it. Lex loved it. She wanted nothing to do with the baby food I brought and tried to feed her after I got on Ciara for feeding her the grown up food.
Lex begging mama to give her some more.
Taking things into her own hands when Mommy says no. Luckily this time I caught it before any major damage was done. The one time we weren't as fast Ciara's drink somehow ended up in her lap - whoops.
Mommy relents and lets Mama feed her.
We went to the bookstore after dinner and had fun pulling all of the books off the shelf.

I realized that it was Lexi's Seven month birthday Sunday night and since we hadn't done anything for her six month I got all excited and got her an ice cream cake at the grocery store. (I think really I just needed an excuse for a little C.arvel in my life:) We sang and put in a candle and let her have a little taste of the frosting and a little taste of the ice cream. We're so bad but she loved it!!!
Well maybe love was a little bit too strong of a word:)
Ty is such a GREAT big brother. I made them dress up in their matching PJs for a mini photo shoot tonight. I needed a new picture for my computer desktop. Lexi LOVES her brother!! He always gets the greatest laughs from her like this one in the tub.
