checking out her "bow head". I think she likes it!
She is smiling much more now, but rarely can I catch it on camera. I tried so hard this morning and of course the one time she had a huge smile she had just spit up and I was trying to clean her up! This was the best I got, just a glimpse!
She is very serious and very much into her surroundings...it may be her two older brothers that are constantly in motion around her. They generally are moving towards her at fast speeds, so I am sure this is cause for concern and might be the reason she seems so serious around them!
The boys are still obsessed with her and surprisingly (just because of their age) have not been too rough with her. They love to talk to her, but it's usually more of a yell and they stand about 2 inches from her eye balls. We've discussed inside voices and respecting sister's space...but it's taking some time to sink in. I can see this being a problem in about 12 years for Sadie, so I thought I should start now on training her brothers!
The boys are great about Sadie's room. When I go in to put her down for a nap, I leave her door cracked while I lay her down. They will follow me to her door and just wait there without coming in. Now, if you know our boys...you know this is big. They are normal toddler, energetic, exploring, live wires! We do Baby Wise and Baby Whisperer around here, so it's not like I am in there for 20 minutes, but it's nice even for that short time for her to not have any distractions.
What happens when 2 year olds try to use scissors while mommy is on the phone?
Yes, I realize that I gave them the scissors and that I was sitting right there. It happened so quickly that I couldn't help but giggle. He was shocked that when you turn the scissors in toward your belly and open and close them that you could acutally cut your shirt!
Blog games...I guess I should share a little.
My sister challenged me to this one.
List 5 favorite addictions:
1. I love coffee, and by coffee I mean, fierce, strong coffee and LOTS of creamer and equal. I like it in the mornings and love to share it with my husband. I would make a bad mormon.
2. The Biggest Loser-yep I am a huge fan!
3. Date nights, never have enough of them, but love them when we do!
4. Christmas music
5. Gum, if you know me, you know I love gum! Right now it's Polar Ice Extra...yes, I am a dork!
