First time at the salon

OK!! Operation Catch Up is underway!
December 13 I took Aiyana and AJ to It's all about the girl. AJ got a good nap while Aiyana got the hula girl style hair. She got her nails painted and some glitter everywhere. This was her first time getting "made up". It was hilarious because she wouldn't move her lips after the girl put lip gloss on her. I kept trying to get her to smile for the pictures I was taking, but all I got was her best "blue steel". (Zoolander anyone?)
If you are cracking up at Aiyana's outfit, I'll explain. Yaya loves to wear pretty dresses (now that she is 3), and she loves to get dressed by herself. In fact, if I dress her she changes when I leave the room. So this dress, her balloon dress, is her favorite item. She ALWAYS wears it! The boots...Grandma Dorthea bought her first pair of rain boots. She felt they went perfect. So, who are we to judge?
p.s. It wasn't raining.Posted by Picasa

Friday Flashback

No Reaching Yaya!

Aiyana was almost 2 in this photo. She has always had a habit of reaching up onto the counters/dressers. I had a berry smoothie in a cup with no lid on my dresser. She pulled it down on top of herself while I was picking out her clothes for the day. She learned her lesson for a while! Enough said.

Cuddles and Fairy princesses

It was 8pm and my babies were tucked in their beds. I turned on the tv to watch something while I did my evening mommy chores. Daddy was at work. I saw that the Disney premier of Tinkerbell was on. Then came the decision: do I let Aiyana get up and watch this? Will we make it to the outdoor classroom in the morning if I do? Will she make it through class without throwing a fit because she is so tired from staying up? She would really love would be great to watch it with her. Oh, why I called her out to the living room couch and asked her to bring a blanket. She was a little unsure about it at first. Asking questions like, " Mommy, why are you letting me watch Tinkerbell?"

We enjoyed watching the movie together. It was great 1-on-1 time! We rarely get that anymore. We cuddled and watched the fairies prepare for Spring. At the end of the movie, Aiyana told me she would rather be Tinkerbell. I said, well, if you are Tinkerbell then I won't have a daughter! She said, "Don't worry, Mommy, I'll be Tinkerbell then I will come right back." OK princess. That's ok.

So after that, she OF COURSE tucked in to bed and went right to sleep like a baby because she was so grateful that I let her get up to watch the movie about her favorite fairy princess.

HA! WRONG!! She came out of her room at least 10 times for a variety of reasons: potty, thirsty, "If I'm Tinkerbell I won't really fly", potty, "Tinkerbell can walk and fly", etc.

She finally fell asleep an hour later at 10:30pm! It was worth the bonding time. Another sweet day!
