This has been a busy week for us bean. You are picking up more and more habits that are turning you into a little girl. You love to watch what we do and want to try it out. Whether it is wearing our shoes, carrying around my purses, or brushing your teeth, you are always one step right behind us. You love to brush your teeth and beg us to let you do it. Luckily you are pretty good at it and have only tried to brush the inside of the toilet once.
Your imagination is going wild now and you can entertain yourself for hours. You are rediscovering toys that you had forgotten about as well as finding entertainment in the most random things. You love the box my fun coffee maker came in and will sit in it, reading a book, eating an apple or just playing with my shoe. I can sit and watch you for hours and it is fascinating to think about what is going on in that little head of yours.
We are trying something new this week and have introduced the “Naughty Chair”. It is just a spot on the floor where we put you when you misbehave. You haven’t really caught on to the point of it, for when we ask you as a warning if you want to go to the Naughty Chair you say yes and get excited. You go and sit in the spot and smile at us, say “Hi!” and try to make us smile. Most of the time it works and we laugh and you know you have won.
We started your parent/child swim lessons this week. I wasn’t sure how you would handle them but the minute we entered the pool area you were all about jumping in the water. You did great and loved every minute of it, even when the instructor dunked you in the water. It wore us both out but I think we are both looking forward to next week. Daddy will come along and one of us will be able to take some pictures. Your favorite time I think during the whole thing was when we sang Old McDonald Had a Farm and you got to Moo while swimming. You moo at the milk carton and the other day you moo’d at me while I ate my ice cream. I was totally offended and thought you were trying to help me stick to my diet but then I realized it was because there were cows on the cup. At least that is what I tell myself.
