The Baby Stella carrier is so far the only way (other than stripping Stella's clothes off) that Veda has any interest in dolls.

In other news, Linus is obsessed with rocket ships. OBSESSED. He says he wants to be an astronaut and be the first man to walk on Mars. (Before you think he's THAT precocious, this statement was made in response to a question in a book about astronauts.)
Yesterday I made a lasagna in the slow cooker. It's not as great as traditional lasagna, but it doesn't heat the house up like the oven would. Anyhoo, the kids couldn't say lasagna clearly. And they also refused to eat it. Then Linus called it launchpad. And they started eating it. Whatever it takes. So lasagna is now officially known as launchpad in our house.
