Getting help


So Mhari has been growing and discovering and accomplishing new things. That is always fun and sometimes scary. She recently discovered that she can stand up with the step stools and then try to climb to reach the trash. Fun times. She did not accomplish her goal, but...


Cody (the boy we babysit) did and was such a great teacher that Sandra almost made it. I had the kids take the stools out of the kitchen. I just know she is going to grow up way to fast and it doesn't help having someone a little older around to help lead the way :).


I was making dinner the other night, or some such Mommy job, and Mhari was unhappy because she had run out of food. I asked Sandra to give her some more cheerios for me. When I looked over (a few minutes later) she was feeding her the rest of the applesauce that was still waiting. What a good sister to help out. It was pretty funny that I just had to take some pictures. I was pretty surprised at how good she was doing too. I'm sure Mhari didn't mind the extra help either :).

Its crazy how girls are born with the knowledge of how to be a little mother. They are so cute.
