Elizabeth has rolled over from her back to belly three times today. She seemed befuddled the first time but took it as an opportunity to better drool on her pretty play blanket. Tonight she fell asleep in my arms, so I carried her upstairs and put her in her Pack and Play in our room. She started yelling about ten minutes later and I came in to find her on her belly again and seriously displeased. I flipped her over and while I was brushing my teeth, she rolled again and got mad. She doesn't seem to remember that she's rolled herself the other way several times when she's irritated with tummy time! But she calmed down and was smiley and cooing when I sang to her (Randy Travis seemed to be her favorite tonight!) so hopefully after another feeding, she will get a good night's sleep.

This is a picture from Elizabeth's first day at daycare with her sweet teacher. She has two of the same teachers that Ben did and is right across the hall from him. Other than refusing her first bottle on Monday, she is eating & sleeping well. It must be really tiring because she has been taking 3-hour naps each morning! They say she really likes watching the other babies.
Ben was worried on her first day because she didn't have shoes on. In the two days that he talked about this, I don't think we really convinced him that it's not necessary for babies to wear shoes or even socks. He was also morally offended by the striped onesie I dressed her in yesterday. She's worn it before and I don't remember him noticing it, but yesterday it was one of the things that set him off during a tearful morning. He cried and demanded I take it off and put something else on (I tried not to laugh too hard!). This morning he even remembered it, telling me he liked today's shirt "but I did not like the striped one. That was not a good shirt." We really wonder what's going on in his head sometimes! Well, most of the time!
We had a lovely visit from my parents last week and they watched Elizabeth during the day, which helped ease my transition back to work. We have a lot of photos from the week that we'll try to post soon.
