(image) I knew this past week was going to be tough, I knew I was going to be exhausted, what I did not know was how tough and how exhausting it was going to be. I did not have the energy nor the desire to even think about taking any pictures let alone think of something to write in a blog post. I did get some cute pictures this morning to share.

(image) You have been dong this standing on one leg pose for the past several days . Time to get you enrolled in ballet class!
(image) I cant promise that I will post during the week this coming week. I start my 9.5 hr days tomorrow and can imagine being fairly tired, if I get anything on here it will probably just be a picture or two. I am going to try very hard to do so, but am not going to beat myself up about it if I just cant get it done.

We made it! we got up and around you put your little backpack on, we walked over to Miss Traci's and you settled right in to your new school. You were patient enough to let me get a couple of photos when I dropped you off, but I could tell you were excited to get your day started. Miss Traci said you had a great day.

(image) You look sad in this photo, but you really just wanted me to get it over with so you could go play.

I love it when......you never miss a "bless you" when someone sneezes. I mean NEVER, you can be intently in the middle of something , but someone sneezes and you don't miss a beat "bless you"One of my biggest struggles with this blog is the photos, taking a decent photo is a constant struggle for me and I try sooooo hard. I just don't have an eye for it and completely lack confidence when it comes to taking photos. Of course when your subject thinks its a funny game to run from the camera that makes it even harder. I may take 25 photos and get 2 decent ones, but I keep trying. These are my favorite photos from this summer and they bring back such wonderful memories,they are in no particular order, although the first one is probably one of my favorite photos of you. Gosh darn it, you are a cute little thing! The idea, when I began 62 posts was to post everday for the two complete months we were home together for the summer. The months of July and August. After missing several posts I am only at 52 and have to return to work tomorrow. I am still going to try and get 62 done, I know it kind of misses the point, but I don't want to quit. I want you to know it is important to try and finish something, even if it doesn't turn out quite the way it was expected. I am so glad I tried to get a picture of you everyday with a little note of what we did. Hopefully one day you will look back on it, like a little scrapbook of your summer of 2009.It has been such a wonderful summer getting to spend everyday with you. We did not really do much. We did not go on any exciting trips or have any big adventures, but this was by choice. I just wanted to stay home and enjoy my time with you and your brother and sister. Grandma Ba came for several visits and we got to spend a lot of time with her, that was wonderful for the both of you....for me too! We have walked for miles and miles, you love going for walks. You love going to the playground and swinging. You have gotten very brave on the swing and want to go higher and higher. We went to the BIG pool a couple of times and you really enjoyed that, we picked LOTS of strawberries and experienced a HUGE storm with lots of rain and thunder and lighting that you still talk about ( you loved it!)The change in you this summer has been amazing. Your growth in the past two months, both emotionally and verbally has been wonderful. When I picked you up from daycare on June 9th you still seemed somewhat babyish, you were not talking a lot or at least not talking about anything that made a whole lot of sense, now you are expressing yourself like crazy and saying something new everday. We can communicate really well and I usually get what you are trying to tell me. You are a little sponge just soaking everything in, you are very bright and learn VERY quickly. The stuff you throw out there sometimes cracks me up , yesterday your phrases of the day were "that's not fair eeder" and " i not fink so"( it was a sassy day) Today you had a lego and you were acting like you were blowing on it and humming, I asked you what you were doing and you told me you were "playing the french horn" HUH?( this has got to be a Little Einsteins influence! ) There are so many funny, cute little things you say and do, I could go on and on........ here are a few of your accomplishments, you can count and recognize #'s 1-20(although the teens are still a little tricky), know almost all shapes (except for trapezoid and hexagon) you know all the colors and can recognize all the letters in the alphabet. It has been such a joy for me to help you learn these things. I love, love , love watching you learn and grow.I haven't really mentioned much of your brother and sister the past couple of months but things are going very well for them. Kayla is getting ready to start her college classes, bought a car with the generous graduation donations she received from family and has her very first real job as a hostess at our local Applebees. I think Coop is getting bored (although he would n[...]

I love it when...... you get out of the bathtub without any drama. Lately you have been giving me a hard time when it is time to get out of the tub. " I not want to get out eeder" "I play in the water" " I play, I play , I play" then you just get mad when I have to pull you out. Tonight you got right out with no fuss:) whew!
I don't have any pictures tonight, some one jacked two of the batteries out of my camera ( coop?) and there were not any charged and ready to go and I just didn't feel like looking for batteries today.

I love it when.....you are doing something that brings you complete joy. Last night we went to the playground and there is a BIG hill there. You thought it was so fun to climb up the hill and run down. You would have stayed until dark running up and down that hill. It really is a big hill and you look so tiny.

(image)

(image) A funny story about this outfit. You are really wanting to put your clothes on yourself and you are really fast at putting this jumper on. You came out of your room today after being in there for only a couple for minutes and you had managed to take your jumper off and put it back on........inside-out and backwards, but you were so proud I just left it and you wore it like that the rest of the day
(image) You saw daddy rolling down the hill and you wanted to roll down too.....the problem was you wanted to roll down on daddy's back with him

What a great day! I took lots of pictures this evening at the playground but they will have to wait until tomorrow. I just really dont want to spend the time editing them tonight. You had a super day today....slept good, ate good...all is good:) I am off the watch Top Chef and Chopped with Coop!

I love it when......you take a good nap. Today was not a nap day though:( your sleeping schedule has gotten all out of whack. You were awake for about an hour in the middle of the night last night and slept until 9:00 this morning and didn't want to take a nap this afternoon. I am going to put you down early tonight before things start getting ugly. We have not had any breakdowns or big sassy attitudes yet and I am hoping to avoid that today! Next week mommy has to go back to work so we will be having early mornings and early nights and you will lay down at school at 12:00 for rest time. I was hoping to try and swing you into a similar schedule this week.....we will give it another try tomorrow.

(image) I will not take responsibility for this outfit. You wanted to wear the skirt Grandma Ba got for you along with your rainbow P.J. top. You make me smile:)

It has been a tough day today. We generally don't have many bad days, but today was a tough one. I have been in a foul mood most of the day....not really sure why, but today was not the best of days for you to decide that you were not going to take a nap and you have been a stinker most of the day. You started telling me around 4:00pm that you were tired and wanted to lay down, there was no way I was going to lay you down for a nap that late...unless I wanted to stay up half the night. You were clingy this afternoon because you were tired and normally I don't mind you crawling all over me....but......I'm done! It has been a long one and I am looking forward to going out and picking some strawberries, piling them on a BIG bowl of vanilla bean ice cream or I could have a big gooey cinnamon roll with melted butter...mmm.. feeling better already! I will turn the TV on SoapNet, crawl into my cozy bed with fresh linens that have been hanging outside to dry and watch some mindless soaps and get a good nights sleep! I am so glad we get a fresh start tomorrow! Love you my angel:)

I took this picture before the "no nap" part of the day began......

We did a whole lot of nothing today! you spent most of the day in your jammies with your backpack that we got at the $1 store yesterday. It doesn't take much to make you happy....a $1 backpack with a new Mickey Mouse coloring book inside and you are a happy little girl.
(image) (image)
I love it when......you sit in the bathtub and sing! We often finish up bath-time with mommy having a bit of a headache because you generally "sing" at the top of your voice ( some may call it hollering) but you are so happy playing in the tub and that makes me happy:)

I love it when..... You sing the clean up song . Clean up, clean up everybody everywhere...clean up, clean up everybody do your share. You almost always sing this to yourself when cleaning up. I am not sure when you heard this. I remember Barney singing it, but you don't watch Barney....it may have been on Yo Gabba Gabba

I love it when...... you run up to me and tell me you love me.....melts my heart every time! ( I may have already mentioned this in one of my previous love it when's, but it is truly my favorite thing you do)





(image) It was fairly chilly this evening, but after the BIG plate of Kung Pao chicken mommy had for dinner there was no way I was going to bed without a walk. So we bundled up and went on a walk to see the orange hand.........
(image)
I have been meaning to write a post about your craziness for the orange hand. It all began almost two months ago when we started going on evening walks when Grandma Ba came to visit. We walked to an intersection and had to push a button and wait for the orange hand to turn into a white man so that we could walk across the street. Now when you spot traffic lights you start saying "orange hand" you get more excited the closer we get....'"here it comes mommy, getting closer" The drive through town can seem quite long as there are many orange hands and it is all we hear about. I find myself saying " uh, huh orange hand, yep I see it" over and over. It is pretty cool to see you learning about things around you and getting excited about it though!

I love it when.......you get so excited about a new pair of shoes. Girl loves her shoes and when it is buy one pair of Chucks get the second pair for 1/2 price, well we just have to get two pairs! You had to have the red ones, you fell in looooove with the red ones. You had to put them on before we even paid for them and wore them out of the store.

Thanks to all of you who left a comment in response to my question of who was following along on this blog. It was nice to know that most of you who responded have been following Miss P since our journey began.

Today you spent a little over an hour at your new pre-school. We are so lucky to have found this special place. Not only is your new little school RIGHT next door, but it is a wonderful environment and you really love Miss Tracie. I think you are going to be very happy there. You are going to go for about an hour in the morning this week. Before we know it mommy will be going back to work so it is important you get to know the children.

You were not into getting your pictures taken today, so I snapped a couple while we were going on our walk. TWO....that's is all I was able to get, you little stinker:)

I love it when.......you walk into or out of a room like you own it! " hi all-one, bye all-one" you give a little wave as you strut your stuff (instead of everyone you say "all-one") it really is pretty darn cute:)Today we went to the playground, I promised you this morning that we would go after your nap and you reminded me as soon as you got up. I have mentioned before that you love to swing.....you seriously love to swing......" higher mommy, higher....woo hoo"Whaaaaat?...... " let's go dude" you have said this to me several times this evening. Not sure where that's coming from...well I suppose it could be your 12 year old brother!Who needs to go to the spa when your 2yr old can give you a pedi :)[...]

who's visiting?

Sat, 08 Aug 2009 15:16:00 +0000

Just a quick request.......if you are a frequent visitor or just stop by once in awhile or this is your first time and you think you might be back, I sure wouldn't mind a quick comment to let me know who is reading this blog. As much as I am enjoying keeping this daily diary of my 62 days of summer with Paige, it can be a bit disconcerting not knowing who is reading and it is nice to know who is following along. Thanks:)
