June 30, 2009

I can't believe it's the last day of June. Today you went over to Nana's and Papa's for a little while and I went shopping to Target and Michael's for our trip to San Antonio. It was raining and you and Papa were outside in the garage watching the rain. It was so cute. We are leaving tomorrow. You are a little sick with a cold or something. Your voice is hoarse, you sound so funny! Hopefully you will be okay on the trip.

June 29, 2009

Today we went shopping with Nana. We went to Kohl's to get some things for our upcoming trip to San Antonio. Then we went to eat lunch at Applebee's. You were really good and had a grilled cheese. Then we came home and hung out.

I had one of those days with you where I felt so impatient and then I felt terrible about it. You are sometimes mean to Zoey, like chasing her with the little grocery cart and pulling her ears, etc. I'm worried that she is going to bite you one of these days. And it's so hot outside I can't just put her out all day. I realllllly need to try to be more patient.

Today you went to Nanny's house to spend the day. She called yesterday and said that she felt guilty that she hadn't got to spend time with you, so she said she wanted to spend the day with you. We took you over there around 9:45, then me and Daddy went to see Transformers. It was really good. I enjoyed it. Then we went to eat lunch at Taco Cabana. We came home and I did some cleaning and your daddy took a nap. Nanny brought you home around 3:15 and said that y'all had a good day. I missed you and I was glad to have you home!

June 27, 2009

We didn't do very much today. We went to the library and turned in some books, then we went to Sonic and got an ice cream.

You don't really take naps anymore, which is hard. Today I tried to get you to take a nap but you only slept for about 30 minutes. You used to take 3 hour naps! It was awesome!

Today was your last day at VBS. I think you really enjoyed it, you got to do arts and crafts which is your favorite. Then we came home and played inside. It's been really hot here. Like 105 and 106. Super hot, even for here.

This morning was VBS and then we met Grandma Carlene at Mcdonalds and you spent the afternoon with her and Grandpa Don in Georgetown at their house. They brought you back at dinnertime and said that you had a lot of fun with them. I enjoyed my afternoon off, especially since you don't nap anymore. Sometimes it makes for some really long days.

You had vacation bible school again today, it's all week long. Nana and Papa took you because I had a doctor's appointment. She said you cried a little bit, but you were okay after a minute. Then we had art class, you got to paint a water bottle and make a sea shell wind chime. You were a little bit crazy at art class and you didn't really pay attention. I think you were just tired.

Today was your first day of Vacation Bible School. It's at the Day School so you know everybody there and you were really excited to see all of your friends. You did cry a little bit when I left, but they said you were fine after a few minutes. Then in the afternoon we went to the grocery store. That's about it for the day.

This morning you went to the pool in Pflugerville with your Daddy. It's a big pool with a slide. Daddy said that you had fun but cried a little bit. I stayed home and got some housework done. Then we just stayed home the rest of the day and played with all your toys.

Today we went swimming with Benjamin and Elizabeth and Nana and Papa's pool in their neighborhood. You had alot of fun, although you wouldn't go in the pool, you just stayed in the shallow part. We have swimming lessons coming up soon though, so hopefully those will go okay. Then it started raining a little bit, so we went back to Nana's and Papa's and had grilled cheese sandwiches and played for a little bit.

Today you went to Nana's and Papa's and I cleaned and organized my closet and went through some of your clothes to get rid of. Some I sell on ebay and some I take to a kids resale shop. I love to buy you clothes! It's probably my biggest weakness. But I can't help myself because little girl clothes are the cutest!

In the morning we went to Jungle Java which is an indoor playscape. We had been there once before on your birthday. You really enjoyed it! There were lots of people there and you had fun being around other kids. It was nice and cool in there.

In the afternoon we had art class where you got to paint a picture frame for Daddy for Father's Day and you also painted a card for Daddy. Then you got to make a clay sandcastle and then cover it with real sand. Yours was just a big blob, so the teacher helped you with yours. You really like art class.

This morning we went to church and I had to stay with you again at bible class. You won't stay in there by yourself. So I sit there feeling like a big dork. Maybe next week you will stay by yourself.

Then in the afternoon we just stayed home. It's been so hot here. We worked on school stuff and you painted some pictures.

Today was spent getting the house and food ready because Doug, Eleanor, Elizabeth, Benjamin, Nana and Papa were coming over for Papa's birthday dinner. You spent alot of time outside with Daddy. You love being outside with him. You fell asleep watching the Wiggles, and I was really glad because it allowed me some time to get some things done, since you don't really take naps that well anymore.

Around 5:30 everyone came over and we ate dinner and then you got to play outside for a little while with your cousins. I forgot to take any pictures. I really need to be better about that.

Then we went to Kohl's to get some new sunglasses and then we went to eat at Schlotsky's. In the afternoon we went to the grocery stuff to get stuff for tomorrow because everyone is coming over to dinner for Papa's birthday. I'm making tacos.

Summer is just flying by, as usual. I try to just enjoy every day, but in the back of my mind is the fact that I will eventually have to go back to school. You have been so adorable lately and I love getting to spend my days with you. You are far from perfect though, and you do sometimes drive me crazy, like today when you broke my sunglasses.

We went to Chick-fil-A for lunch and you played on their playscape. You hardly ate anything though. Then we went to Nana's and Papa's because today is Papa's birthday. We stayed and visited for a little while, then we came home. We just played at home for the rest of the day.

Today you stayed at Nana and Papa's for a little while because I had a doctor's appointment. Papa took you up to the pool and he said you liked to let the buckets dump on your head. Then I picked you up and we came home and just played inside. It has been very hot this week.

This morning we went to Wal-Mart, you like to ride in the big carts. Then in the afternoon you had art class where you got to paint a little wooden boat and paint a canvas. You love art class. You really like painting. You want me to stay in art class with you, you don't want me to wait in the hallway.

Your second day without the paci has gone well! You only had one incident where you were crying for it, and I took you to McDonalds so you could get a toy and ride in the car. You love to get out of the house and ride in the car, so I think that did the trick. This morning I had a doctor appointment and I took you with me. You did a really good job. Then we went to Target and I let you pick out a toy. I told you the ba fairy said we could get a toy. You picked out 2 babies, a little one and a big one. Then in the afternoon Nanny came over and brought you a beautiful blanket that she had made. She also got you a cash register and some water guns. I think you have enough toys for now. The toys are taking over our house and I don't know what to do with all of them. Sometimes I want to just throw everything away!

Today was a very exciting day! We finally got rid of your pacifier. Now, I know you are thinking that 4 years old is a little late, and it is, but we just hadn't done it yet. I was going to do it last summer, but you had your thumb surgery then we went on vacation, then I didn't do it over Christmas because I was tired, so I knew I had to do it this summer. So this morning we couldn't find it, so I figured this was as good of time as any. I told you the ba fairy came to get it. You call it a ba. And you did suprisingly well. You only had one time where you asked for it and the rest of the day you did great! I am so proud of you! I thought it was going to be terrible!

This morning we went to church and then we went out to eat at Serrano's. Then we went to get ice cream at Baskin Robbins with Nana. You got mint chocolate chip. You went to sleep without your ba. I am so relieved that it's over.

Today's big excitement was that we went to Tate's birthday party at Pump it Up. He is a little boy in your class. You love bouncy places and really enjoyed the party. You even went down the big slide, which in the past you would not do at all! You are getting so grown up and this is such a cute age. You say and do so many cute things. I wish I could just freeze time and make you stay this cute.

Then when we came home you played outside with Daddy. It was really hot and your cheeks were so red, but you love being outside with your Daddy.

This morning you had gymnastics and I was so proud of you because you stayed in class. The mommies couldn't stay in the class, we had to wait outside, and in the past, you would not have put up with that. But you did stay and participated in class. You really enjoyed it. Then later in the afternoon we went to the grocery store and you got to ride in the race car cart. You love those things, but they drive me crazy! They are so hard to steer.

Today was a fun day! You went to Nana's and Papa's while I had a doctor's appointment and then Elizabeth and Benjamin came over. You guys have so much fun together. I wish I would have taken some pics, but I didn't. I'm trying to take more pictures. Y'all ran through the sprinklers and ran around screaming outside. Then you got to take a bath in Nana's big tub. You really like her big tub.

This morning we went to the park that is right by our house. You played with a little girl that was there and you had a lot of fun. Then we came home and I tried to get you to take a nap, but you didn't. Then in the afternoon Grandpa Don and Grandma Carlene came over for a couple of hours. You really enjoyed having them here. Then we had tacos for dinner which you actually ate!

Second day of summer! You were whiney and you cried a lot for some reason. But we did manage to have some fun. We went to Nana and Papa's in the morning and we were going to go swimming, but there were some people working on the pool, so we went back to their house and you ran through the sprinkler. Then we came home and after you cried for about an hour about nothing, we went to art class. I didn't think it was going to go very well, but you ended up really liking it and didn't want to leave.

Today was my first official day of summer vacation. We woke up around 7:00 because Zoey was barking at something. We went to the teacher store for a few workbooks to work on alphabet and numbers. Then we went to the Arboretum and sat on the cows. You actually took a nap in your own bed! You haven't been sleeping in your bed at all so this was a first! Your room is so pretty. Then we worked on school for a little bit, talking about shapes.
