E got some late birthday money today from Grandma and Papa Denton.
So we headed out to Toys R Us and Target
And found her some good loot
She loves pushing a stroller, playing with a ball, and is always stealing cars from boys. However, a few minutes ago D took the car out of packing and showed her how to push it so it ran by itself....and she freaked out. It should of been caught on video. Maybe next time.
Random picture of her playing on laptop while I am blogging.
Okay so this post has two points. Even though these pictures were all taken tonight, it could of encompassed pictures from both thoughts.
E was watching TV and snuggling with us on our bed tonight. Around 7:30 we noticed that she wasn't in bed with us anymore and the apt was quiet.
We got up during the commercial break to find her....she was in her bed, only her diaper on, with her blanket pulled up around her.
I guess she was so tired she wanted to put herself to bed. So we brushed her teeth, put on her pjs, and said prayers. Then she promptly fell asleep. Poor baby.
Lately, when E is throwing a fit or refuses to do something, I give her the option to go to time out in her bed or do what I ask.
She always goes to her room, shuts the door, and gets in bed. When she is calm she comes out and hugs me and does what I ask her to.
Occasionally, when throwing a fit, before I say anything she will go straight to her room to cool down too.
I've got to say its a pretty good discipline system. Hopefully it continues to get rid of the tantrums.
I am in the living room facebooking and I hear E in the other room yelling "mommy diaper change." So I ask her to come to me so I can check. Recently she asks for a lot of diaper changes and they aren't all neccessary....
Anyway she keeps yelling at me and so I finally after a few minutes get up and was greeted with this sight...
Yes, somehow, probably with help of the beanbag climbed up on to the changing table
Notice she is holding a wipe :)
She was so proud of herself. But couldn't get down.
Everyday is new surprise.
Oh and potty training officially starts next monday. The pull ups and underwear are already purchashed ;)
We went to the zoo today. It is free on Monday's; so I thought why not? As we were going E asked if we were going to see "Ah ah's" (monkeys); sea lions, Nemo (clown fish); Dori (blue fish...); and Lions
We ended up seeing only lions off that list...poor baby. But she also go to see tigers, turtles, kangaroos, sheep, goats, peacocks, snakes, bears, longhorns, and a few other small animals. As we were almost done she kept asking for elephants, which they didn't have either...oh well maybe we will take a trip to the Dallas Zoo and see more soon.
On the bright side it was free and she still had lots of fun ;)
