At 31 Months

*Bug's busy, busy....noticing everything, copying everything, chatting endlessly and always underfoot!

*She has seriously learned every letter of the alphabet and can name them all by sight...even out of order. Our friend, Lori, comes over and will purposely wears a shirt with letters on the front just to entertain her and listen to her recite them. We also enjoy the foam letters in the tub...she'll play and stick them to the sides while reciting them over and over.

*Colors are finally not a problem for this little Bug! She knows them all. Now she likes to point and ask us, "What color is this?"

*"School's" been going very well for the two days each week. She doesn't nap (I didn't expect that she would) and the teachers are so sweet that they don't make her. They do an extra art project instead. We've had one day where she didn't want to go, but she was actually not feeling well that day and there hasn't been another episode since. Sometimes I think she would rather go every day if she could!

*We are finally hearing some sweet yeses! We have been waiting a long, long time for these:

Would you like an apple for breakfast? No
Would you like some pancakes? No
Would you like some oatmeal? Yes!

*Have I ever mentioned that this little girl knows what she wants? And doesn't want for that matter.

*Her favorite show right now is Fresh Beat Band and we're contemplating dressing like Kiki for Halloween.

*Still in 24 months clothing, size 5 shoe, size 3 diapers and no serious potty training going on our house.

Happy 31 Months sweet Ladybug!

Happy 15th Anniversary

Wow, it's gone by so fast.

I noticed that the traditional gift was crystal for 15 years...

Weekend at Mimi's

Her little feet didn't quite reach the pedals, but she enjoyed going for a ride with Mimi. Go Mimi Go!

At this Moment

I think the terrible two's are upon us again...perhaps the two's combined with the new "school" schedule.

I tried to divert her attention tonight with the bubbles, but she did not want to go.

No way.

So, I stood outside in the front yard for a few minutes blowing bubbles waiting for her to join me.

She finally did join me..

and all was well again.

First Day of "School"

I never thought I'd be sending my little ladybug to "school" at 2.5 years old...but here we go! Our church advertised a Mother's Day Out program 2 days a week and I thought it would be a good opportunity for her to play with some other little kids.

She was so quiet on "Meet the Teacher Day", didn't talk to anyone, although she did walk around and play with some of the toys. I also watched her stare down another little boy while waiting for her turn on the rocking horse. I suppose I should be thankful that she only stared and didn't push him off! So far, we have been lucky and she hasn't learned about hitting, throwing and shoving.

Here she is getting ready to go in with her ladybug lunch bag. Oh and there's lots of rules, like no open toe shoes. We had to scrounge to find some since we've been living in sandals all summer.

Today was play-doh day and a first for buggy. I've never introduced her to play-doh, but it looks like they got along just fine!

I pray that school continues to go well for her and that she meets lots of new little friends. I want her social skills to flourish!
