Attention shoppers!

To combat the recession, Helena has been sent to work as a cashier. What didn't make it into the clip was Helena asking for the child's "Shoprite" card. I guess she has gone food shopping a couple of times!

Please Touch Museum Redux

Helena made a return visit to the Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia. This time she was joined by new friends Mia and Lily. All three girls took excellent naps after 3 hours of running around and playing at the museum (much to their parent's delight).

Banging the drums with Daddy

"I once strummed a guitar this big!"

Helena liked visiting the Statute of Liberty so much that she imagined it in her own image

"Here's your Big Mac Daddy!"

Time to Bake

Helena spent Valentine's Day night with her Grandparents so that Mommy and Daddy could have a night on their own. Helena spent part of the evening helping Grandma bake a cake for Grandpa.

The finished product (who decided to put pretzels on it?)

"Ummm! Delicious!"

The Big Show

Helena's semester at the Little Gym concluded yesterday with a "Big Show" for parents, grandparents, family, and friends to come observe.

Getting ready to go into class

We aren't sure what this means, but Helena ran toward us in the middle of her class and gave us this sign with her hands

Showing off on the balance beam

Daddy was impressed with how easily Helena did this, both physically and without an adult spotting her

Helena likes this pose the best

Here she is doing it again without assistance
