So as of Saturday we are kicking the Binky habit. Saturday night went pretty good. Sunday nap, night time and today's nap... not so good. The crying and tears are so hard on mommy. All I wanna do is hold her. Problem is up until now she has relied on the Binky to help her fall back asleep when she wakes in the night. Now she wants to rely on me rocking her. So as much as I WANT to rock her, I have to stop or she will never be able to put herself back to sleep when she wakes in the night. I know this, but it is still hard. Although she will be my "baby" forever, she will technically only be my baby for a few more months and I want to savor every minute while I still can.
It is nice to know that even with no nap and lots of tears, my pretty girl still can be happy and smile.
Here she is reading in her Dora tent. Oh and chatting on mommy's cell phone to her friend Neela. Funny, when the grandparents call she won't do this. Is she a preteen already?!
So this is the closest we have gotten with the potty training! Finally I got her to sit on the potty. She decided this morning that it would be a good idea to take off her nightgown and diaper and run around naked. When she picked up this new Dora book I saw an opportunity! I told her it was a new book just for when she is on the potty. So down she sat...and stayed...for about 5 minutes!! No potty of course, but my goal right now is just getting her to sit there.She is proud of herself I think!
Kensi and mommy both love story time @ the library. This weeks theme was balls. Not only do we read stories, but we dance to music, do finger plays and other activities to get the kids moving. Here the kids each got to bounce their own "ball" (really a balloon) every time they heard the "B" sound in the song. I don't think Kensi actually got that part yet, but she had a ball playing with the balloon! I had a great time watching her as well. She even has a new stalker, eh hem, I mean friend. A little boy named Brenden that just wouldn't stay out of her face. I don't blame him though. She is pretty cute!
Kensington got to go with us to our u/s today to see her baby brother again. This time we got a 3D picture. We weren't even expecting it, as you usually have to pay extra for these. I guess not when you are going to a specialist though. Here he is kicking me! A nice profile picture.
It's funny b/c as soon as we are in the room, Kensi starts saying "open, open" for us to open the door. Poor child has a fear of the doctors office I think. But she really enjoys seeing the baby on the monitor. I think it may be helping her to understand that what is in mommy's belly is on the screen b/c she sees them place the wand on my belly and move it all around. Poor girl has no idea how her life is about to change! She'll always be mommy's little girl though =)
We had the chance to go to the Zoo today. Lucky Kensi gets to ride in a stroller.It was Jack Hannah's Fall Festival. They had lots of neat stuff, including this pumpkin carving. That is the baby elephant "Becco" carved into the pumpkin. Here is Kensi with her cousin Sammie getting to see Becco up close and personal.
Waiting for lunch. Goofing off and dancing with Neela.
They also spent time looking for and chasing birds in the bushes.
Love this one!
The whole gang...minus Neela and her mommy. And this mommy taking the picture of course.
With Sammie again.
Daddy feeding the birds.
This one really liked Chad!
Nothin' like an Oreo cookie ice cream sandwich on the way out!
