On another note, Petals’s screaming for food or diaper changes has got to go.  I’ve been trying signing to her – milk, more, food, daddy, mama, finished – but the only ones that she has picked up are the standard “Hello” and “Good-bye”…and she knows how to reach up to picked up…and she knows how to clap her hands in celebration.  (Interestingly enough, she also knows how to hold out one hand to play patty-cake.  We didn’t teach her that one.)  I’m contemplating buying books or baby DVDs, but I have no idea which one would be the most helpful.

My hair looked awesome the other day.  I wanted to share.
