Keep her away from flag poles

Eli's at the hunting camp until tomorrow evening, so it's just us girls hanging out today. We went out this morning and met Elsie's Aunt S for brunch when she drove through on her way back to Duke. Then, we went to Target, ultimately looking for socks for Eli. But, we didn't find what we were looking for and were waylaid in the baby section. Elsie got cranky, so we went to check out, and I picked her up out of the cart (she was sitting in the big kid seat with a cart cover that MC gave us) and she drooled on my shoulder for a little bit, and then fell alseep, all while we were waiting to check out. So, after I paid, I put her down in the seat, laying down, and we went back in for another round. Somewhere in housewares, Elsie woke up and was not happy, so we went to the car and made our way home (2 quick stops).

The diaper I changed when we got home was unlike any other. Paste. Ugh. And she was wearing her new red shoes from Misty's Blessings and somehow, somehow, she got poop on them. Still not quite sure how that happened.

We played and hung out, but she eventually went to sleep on our bed, sleeping for over an hour. When she woke up, I put her on the floor in the living room and she sat and played and then rolled around a bit. The next time I looked up, she had made her way over to the coffee table, which has metal legs, and was licking the nearest leg. Lots of drool. She was very intent on her absolute drool coverage. It was pretty funny.

It's still early yet, but I think we're going to try some bananas tonight, take a bath, and then go to bed. Then, maybe, just maybe, I'll grade some papers. Maybe.
