Then on Saturday morning, we ventured to downtown Peoria to go the newly opened Caterpillar Visitors Center. It's a pretty impressive building. If you don't have kids with you, you can actually read about how Caterpillar got started and all the neat things they do around the world. Or if you have kids, you can chase them around as they climb on the really cool tractors.
William enjoyed the architecture

banana (poor girl’s tummy was a mess after these)
rice cereal Sleep: she’s a great napper. Usually 3 a day. One early morning, one right around lunch and the last one later in the afternoon. I nurse her and she’ll put herself to sleep. Nighttime sleep is awful right now though. I feel like she’s reverted back to newborn sleep and is up every 2 hours or so “needing” the boob. We’re about ready to do a little night weaning tough love. :) This momma’s tired. Other stuff: She is going through some major stranger anxiety. I tried to leave her in the nursery for a Mom2Mom event and I got paged within about 10 minutes. But she finally recognizing William as her dad though and she gives him the biggest smiles!Except for once or twice, she continues to leave things on her head! I’m one happy momma about this one.And of course, she’s still madly in love with her brother. She lights up when he comes in the room and watches his every move. I pray they continue to be good friends! Such an amazing little person. We love you Ellison Jakeh!

This past Thursday, Ellie and I went to a baby shower to celebrate this sweet little girl, Claire W (picture stolen from her mom’s facebook page).I sadly took no pictures of the shower, but wanted to show off the girly cuteness I made for her. A “C” onesie, headband, and matching bib. And of course every little girl needs some headbands and clips! Welcome to the world little Claire!
