Cleopatra the Cheerleader. What's Not To Love?

I didn't know Cleopatra had a beer/milk belly!

I missed most of the Superbowl this year (I was making my Never-Made-The-Same-Way-Twice-Bean-Dip, which turned out to be scrumdiddlyumptious). And I'm okay with that. I'm even okay with missing most of the Superbowl commercials, which cost an astounding 2.5 mill to run. I can think of a whole lot of other stuff I'd rather buy if I had that kind of money. Just sayin'.

Anyway, it sure looked like the Patriots had it in the bag, and then it all comes down to those pesky Mannings, doesn't it? "I would've gotten away with it if it hadn't been for you pesky Mannings." This particular Manning has a whole lot more hair, a whole sweaty mess of it, as the cameras kept jockeying to show us. I really could have cared less who won, but Braden was rooting for the Patriots, and therefore Braden's dad was all for the Giants. Gotta make things interesting, you know?

The Schmenna was royally bedecked with much cheerleader-osity. Lo, she did exude much cuteness. The jumper is a 6-9 onesie dress, so I was a bit worried that it wouldn't fit her, but luckily it stretched enough. There's also a little blue headband that goes with it, but she liked that about as much she liked the Santa hat of a month and a half ago. Braden put her standing up holding onto my feet (which were on top of the coffee table), and she lasted about a second before losing her balance and slamming her chin on the coffee table. BAD TIMES, MY FRIENDS. She bit something going down, so I was holding her while Braden dabbed at the blood filling up her mouth. I think it was not as bad as it originally seemed, because it stopped after not too terribly long. Poor Jenna was screaming her head off, though, as you might imagine. I held her for a little while, and Braden gave her some Infant Tylenol and little pieces of ice, which calmed her down immensely. Before long, she was her happy self again, and we were all commenting on how quickly babies bounce back from injury.

Here are some pics to commemorate the great event:

Nice Blue Butt! Jenna is going through one of Granmom's toy drawers.
