Stella says the word "bug" in the cutest way imaginable. I just kept getting her to say it over and over again. So cuuute!
Stella is registered to start school at Kings Bay Y at North Williamsburg (Ava's old school) this September in the 2's class "The Orange Room". She's only going two half-days with music on Tuesdays and Fridays, but she's definitely ready and is going to LOVE it.
We opened Stella's crib a few nights ago to help with poopmania. She's slept on the floor almost every night since.
It's 10:48 pm and she's still not asleep.
Stella and I had a fun time at the Queens Zoo on a quiet Monday. She rode her first roller coaster and loved it so much we rode it three times! We rode other carnival rides, saw some animals, ate a peanut butter & jelly sandwich, and shared a Mr. Softee chocolate ice cream cone.
Her favorite was the seals (sea lions) today. She's been sleeping with a mamma and baby toy seal figure lately--makes sense.
She loves playing rough with dad, roller coasters, fast rides, puddle jumping, Finding Nemo, running in the grass, lollipops, and popsicles.
Maybe if we crated her, she'd stop pooping in her crib.
Stelly's NY pizza game is strong. #cheesesidedown
The rat park sprinkler was on, so we suited up and had a rainbow snowcone. Ava played in the freezing cold sprinkler while Stella jumped in the muddy puddles like Peppa Pig.
First family bike ride through Central Park. We rented bikes, made a few circles, and enjoyed sandwiches and treats from Le Pain Quotidien in the grass.
We started our Memorial Day right with hotdogs at Nathan's for their 100 year anniversary at Coney Island.
Stelly hit some amusement park rides. At one point she yelled "This is sooo much fun!"
And then she had a bit of beach time or should I say, gross sandy puddle time.
The ocean and shower water was ice cold, so the girls had to air dry, brush off, and ride home a bit sandy. The Mr. Softee ice cream helped though.
Tap out Porkchop. Tap out. You have no idea who you're messing with.
We have curls here folks. Uncharted territory.
Who doesn't enjoy watching a good Lion Guard episode?
Stella had a blast at Ninno's wedding. She was lovely for the whole night, even though she made me nervous running up and down the metal stairs with her cousins in her long dress. Jenna, Ava, Riley, and Stella all wore matching dresses looked like adorable fairies.
Stella had a fantastic time playing with her cousins at Ninno & RG's Rehearsal Dinner at Hill Country BBQ. We were so happy that she didn't stay home with a sitter. It was fun to watch her interact with Jenna especially, who she absolutely adores. She ran around with Hadley (age 1), Jack (2), Riley (3), Maci (4), Ava (5), Jenna (9), and Jake (11). It was fun to see all the kids together.
Stella had a great time at Adventure Aquarium in Camden NJ visiting the hippo exhibit. She kept saying "Hiiipooo, where aaare you?!" She's big into hippos right now.
It was also the first time her fat little white legs were exposed to sunlight since last summer.
Headed to the Brooklyn Children's Museum for a playdate with Jolene & Millie.
All four girls enjoyed the dance theater the most.
We're back at a playspace hiding from the rain today.
Watching Sesame Street dinos on HBO with Rusty & Mars.
Stella was stoked to wake up to a basket full of chocolate candy. She could have cared less about anything else inside.
She tried out her new birthday scooter in the park with Dad and Porkchop, while Ava hunted for eggs. Afterwards she met the Easter bunny.
