I slept so hard last night (and had a dream about an ex boyfriend which was odd) but I really really really needed that sleep. Sometimes I go in our spare bedroom to sleep without Kev and Mills and I hate doing that but when I don't sleep, I get sick and I cannot deal with being sick right now (or anytime). How's that for a run on sentence? Anyway, I woke up feeling refreshed and ready for the day. Insert praise hands!
While we were getting ready this morning, Molly Anne was running around playing etc. and all of the sudden I heard silence. You Mamas know that this usually isn't a good thing! So I ran to find her and this is what I found. She had climbed up into the glider in her room and was reading her nativity book that my MOH gave her for Christmas. How sweet is that?!!! I love that she is leaning on her new blue bunny that Aunt Kate gave her this past weekend. I asked her to point to Jesus and she pointed to him. Maybe we are doing something right?! Ha! She also had gotten her shoes out and put them on by herself! Always has to figure out how everything works!
But also, I just couldn't believe that my BABY was sitting up in a chair and quietly reading a book. How did she grow up so quickly?!!!!!!!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhh.
Speaking of growing up, when we were at our new neighbors house last weekend, she got on Maggie's radio flyer tricycle and tried to ride it. I think it is time for her to get a little bike and this may have to be her first one. Birthday gift?!!
She has been obsessed with drinking out of my cup whenever I have a straw in it. As in - she is holding my tervis tumbler and drinking out of it by herself - gah so grown up! Sarah told me this would happen so I should have expected it. I'm going to get Molly Anne this water bottle that Gigi uses and I just know Molly Anne will love having her own!
I'm finding myself putting up baby toys and having to find more challenging things for her. She can put the shapes in the shape sorter quickly now and name most of the shapes. She can do the animal and shape puzzles in less than a minute. I want her to stay challenged so here and there I'm putting the easy stuff away and finding more things to stimulate her little mind! If you have any suggestions, I'd love them!
