So it has happened, India is now a "keep my door shut" kind of a girl. She spent most of the afternoon in her room and every time I tried to keep the door open, she would quickly shut it. There is not a door knob on her door yet, so I was able to watch her through the hole in the door. She was just playing, but it was cute that she wanted the door shut to do so.

It is even colder when you have just returned from a week of being in Palm Springs. We made our second trip to California with India. The plane rides get better and better each time, but there is still a lot of high pitched screaming. The people in front of us on the way home said that they thought that she could be a soprano singer. Although we had a great time on the trip, India's sleeping habits were horrible. She would wake up for at least an hour and a half each night before going back to sleep. After a few nights I realized that she had some teeth coming in.
India got to play in the pool a couple of times. She really enjoys the water. The second time we took her in she did a sweet face plant right into the water. Oops, Jeff grabbed her right away, but it was scary and funny all at the same time. I was able to catch the whole thing on tape though.
We went hiking a couple of times, and had India on Jeff's back. She slept for the most part but when she was awake did seem to enjoy being outdoors. I felt bad that we were having to take her back to the land of rain and gray.
She really took to my parents. She hadn't seen them in a couple of months, so I wasn't sure if she would take a while to warm up. By the end of the week I think she would have rather gone home with them than us. But being the mean parents we are; we took her home to Washington.

We always try to have India eat some vegetable before the rest of her dinner. The easiest and quickest way is just to cook up some organic frozen vegetables, you know the ones carrots, peas, corn and green beans. India eats it all, but it's the way she does that is so funny. She has to eat them by color.
- Peas and green beans
Every time, it's the same thing. So cute.
