Ballet Shoes, Bath, and Gnocchi

It has been a beautiful day, albeit one on little sleep! We have had much to celebrate.

Katie and I rolled gnocchi for dinner and made some more pesto from the basil in our garden.

Katie is using the gnocchi roller for the first time.

We also made a meatloaf for Daddy's dinner.

Also, Eric had his first "big boy" submersion bath tonight, as his umbilical cord is now all the way off and his belly button is healed. I can't believe we are already past the wash cloth bath phase---Eric's infancy is going WAY too quickly.

Post-bath, wrapped in his hooded towel.

Scrubbing Eric's back.

Eric enjoys his bath!
Also: Katie picked out her first pair of ballet shoes at the dance store this morning, as she has a ballet class starting next week. When we got home, she spent several hours dancing around the house in them. Her excitement was so sweet.
This has to be a shorter post, because our meatloaf is almost done! Goodnight everyone!
