Gettin' Creative

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a good weekend! We went to the Art Fest on Saturday morning and Saturday evening John and I went on our first date since Adler was born! It was a wonderful two hours!  We went out to eat at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants and then we went grocery shopping.  You know your life has changed when you have free time and all you want to do is grocery shop at your own pace without kids!  :)    

I've been meaning to post these for a of the most challenging parts of our day while John is entertaining Sloane while feeding Adler.  The first few weeks she was happy to sit down and watch Curious George or play with a new toy out of storage but those activities aren't getting the job done anymore. So, two weeks ago I started flipping through all my Family Fun magazines and all those ideas I've pinned on Pinterest but haven't actually used and finally put them to work!   Here are some pictures....

Chalk paint: Equal parts corn starch and water with a few drops of food coloring! So much fun!

Play Doh- Flour, salt, water and food coloring.  Ours was a little sticky but she didn't care.

A note about the sticker on her belly....The sticker belongs to an outdoor plastic toy that John put together last weekend.  She found them while we were setting up to play with play doh and put them all over her body.  I didn't think anything of it because she puts stickers on her arms and legs all the time.  Well, apparently these were like super adhesive stickers and terribly hard to get off of her.  We eventually got them off by rubbing baby oil all over her body and pretty much just ripping them off while we tried to distract her with TV.  She was mad at us for awhile but eventually got over it.  I'm curious to see if she ever tries it again.
