Natalie on her New Bike

Natalie wanted to ride her bike even though it wasn't very nice outside.

Natalie still rides with her head down, but is starting to look up more and smile at the camera for me. She's not very fast yet, but getting better every time she rides.

Rachel's Latest School Project

Rachel's latest school project involves taking care of a computerized baby for the weekend. She cries when she is hungry, needs her diaper changed or needs to be burped. Rachel has a coded bracelet she has to sync with the baby before attending to her needs. The baby bottle & diapers that came with the baby have computer chips to register when the baby is fed and changed.

The baby records if her head is not supported too.
Natalie really likes the baby.
Rachel has named her Destiny.
Mallory and Rachel wore this sleeper when they were little.
The baby has to be feed.
Natalie wanted a turn to feed the baby so Mallory helped.
Bailey's turn.
The project is working, by about 9:00pm Friday night, Rachel had declared that she never wanted any babies of her own. Lucky for Rachel, the baby only woke up once in the night to eat and get changed. When the baby wouldn't go back to sleep in her carrier, Rachel slept the rest of the night in bed with the baby. WTG Rachel!!!
