Fit for a Queen

Last Saturday was a busy day.  Dad took me to swim lessons and built me a fort when we got home.  I zonked out under the fort right away, before I even had time to eat lunch.  I think I was still getting over my bit of the flu.

That afternoon, Dad deconstructed my crib and put together...wait for it...wait for it....my new QUEEN SIZED BED!  I am 2 1/2 after all, so it's about time.

 


I love it! I slept in it for the first time Saturday night, February 16th and I did really well.  I went to bed as usual about 8:30, woke with a dry diaper around 5am and yelled to go potty and then went back to sleep until 8am!  I did however wake with some crazy bed head.  Mom and dad love the bed too because they can climb in with me and read me stories and snuggle before I go to sleep.
 

Some other fun happenings for the week...Sunday we headed out to see BobBob and Ta, I got a new Curious George Bingo game, I got to be lazy on the couch, and had watermelon slushes.

 
Wednesday night, mom snuck in and took a couple picks of me before she headed to bed.  She thought the monkey sleeping on my chest was pretty cute. 
The big blizzard hit on Thursday, 2/21.  I got the day off from school and both mom and dad stayed home to entertain me. It was so bad dad shoveled the driveway twice!  We spent most of the day in our jammies and dad built another fort and even Porter wanted to join in.
 

Other big news.  Baby Brother's room is finally finsihed!!!  The last pieces were getting the door hung.  Looks pretty good doesn't it?
















Baby Bro's crib got delivered during the blizzard so we went ahead and put that together and it's a perfect fit for his teeny tiny room.

Fruits of Labor

I was off of school on Friday the 8th as well.  Residual flu.  By Saturday I was feeling a lot better and Sunday I was back to my old self.  To pass the time, I did a lot of baking.  On Friday it was berry mini muffins and on Saturday it was banana bread.


Ta FINALLY came home on Sunday night and I gave her a huge hug!  And the best part...she brought me presents.  More pics to come since we didn't get to spend that much time with her.


I was off school again on Wednesday.  I think I gorged myself and ended up just eating too much on Tuesday night and woke up and puked up my whole dinner and snacks.  At least it got me a "get out of school" card.  That evening mom had signed me up for a gymboree Valentines day party so we figured why waste the money.  It gave me the chance to burn off a little energy.




 

Thursday was of course Valentine's Day.  We had a party at school where we traded valentines and got to enjoy lots of treats.  Suckers, goldfish, and fruit snacks.   Good times for all!

Guess Who's Back!

My 1/2 birthday came and went last week.  On Wednesday I celebrated with a donut and a candle.  Two of my favorite things.

I've really gotten into liking forts.  Dad is pretty creative with the blankets.  Luckily I don't even have to help with the clean up.


BobBob got home from Thailand on Thursday night but I didn't get to see him until Friday.  Big hugs all around.  I was happy to know he missed me as much as I missed him.







Saturday was the first day of swim lessons.  Dad walked me into the pool and helped me with my skills.  Splashing, kicking on my front and back, and the most fun one...jumping in from the side of the pool.


Afterwards we headed to Home Depot for some stuff for baby bro's room and then finished off the morning with lunch which included a ice cream cone!  I didn't really want to share but dad made me.


Mimi picked me up after nap and I got to slumber party with her and Max.  You know what that means...more ice cream!


Mom and dad went to the Lady Gaga concert on Monday night so BobBob came to watch me.  Mom and dad did some of their own watching...people watching that is.

I'm very into hair right now and offered to do dad's.   Most people use toilet paper to dry their hair right?

On Wednesday I woke up with the stomach flu and had to stay home.  It was a rough day/night.  Dad took care of me in the monring and mom relieved me and took the afternoon/night shift.  Not that you want this detail, but I had the dry heaves until almost 4am.  At that point I took a turn for the better and started keeping water down.  Mom and dad were pretty worried.  I spent today Feb 7th watching a lot TV and snoozing on the couch.


Updates on the room addition...trim, flooring, some paint.  All that's left are a few more finishing touches and to hange the door.  Hoping to wrap up the project tomorrow!
