Ten on "It is Tuesday somewhere"

Just a quick update, a la bullet points!

  1. Hives showed back up last week.  YUCK, miserable!
  2. We are going to Gatlinburg for a long weekend, it can't come soon enough!
  3. I have a serious case of the 'Mondays'
  4. Considering taking the twin bed out of Rory's room for a while until it is time for her to be in it all the time.  We had it in there when she was little bitty so that we would have a place to lay down for middle of the night feedings or if we needed to.  It is nice having it in there, but I think Rory would rather have the play space.
  5. There is a 4x6 pink tent in the middle of my living room.  It was a Christmas gift from my Aunt Linda.  Rory LOVES it.  We will probably leave it there for a few more days, and then take it down for a while but for now, she is loving it.
  6. Rory asked to listen to Belle in the car on Saturday.  I didn't want to listen to the CD, so I told her that I didn't know where it was.  She pointed at the radio in the dash and said "Mommy you push 123 on the car and we listen to Belle"  I guess she has the CD player figured out, great.
  7. We LOVED the lovely weather this weekend.  We opened up windows in the house and let it air out.  It was heavenly!
  8. Yesterday, we went grocery shopping and I let Rory take her little metal shopping cart and shop too.  Kevin pushed the big buggy and I wrangled Rory, apologized to other shoppers for her Kamikaze steering and snuck items from her basket, back to the shelves.  She enjoyed it and we had a good time.
  9. The song of the week is...Sesame Street.  She doesn't watch Sesame Street, but we have a CD with a bunch of songs on it.  She gallops around the house singing "Sunny Day..sleepin da cwowds away..ah ma may to where the air is street, tell me how da get to sesame street." 
  10. Life with a toddler...always an adventure....keep them coming!

I haven't posted pics of Miss Bee in a while, so I figured I would post a few.  

A day at the park with Mommy and Daddy.  Those piggie tails kill me!
 Little girl, big bow, monogrammed shirt, english sandals...does it get any more southern than that?
 Rory likes to "dip" her food.  I had given her a little cup of sour creme to dip her cheese quesedilla in.  I turned around, and she had put it all over her face, hair and hands.  She said "Mommy, I love dis wo-shin (lotion)."
 We went outside to play and she insisted on taking 'Baby Meredith' in the stroller.  She pushed it out to the middle of the drive way, turned around and said "Mommy, you take my pic-tah like dis."  So...I did.  She had quite a few more poses for me too.

 My big girl.  She looks so big in the picture.
 She is so goofy sometimes.  She must get that from Kevin's side of the family.

For Bugger

From my very favorite book...Little Women.

"My child, the troubles and temptations of your life are beginning, and may be many; but you can overcome and outlive them all if you learn to feel the strength and tenderness of your Heavenly Father as you do that of your earthly one. The more you love and trust Him, the nearer you will feel to Him, and the less you will depend on human power and wisdom. His love and care never tire or change, can never be taken from you, but may become the source of lifelong peace, happiness, and strength. Believe this heartily, and go to God with all your little cares, and hopes, and sins, and sorrows, as freely and confidingly as you come to your mother."

Ten on Tuesday--Wednesday

  1. Our office was closed because of ice on Monday.  Kevin left for work at 1:30 on Sunday and didn't get home until 12:00 noon on Monday.  He was stuck at the precinct because the next shift couldn't get in. We had about 2 inches of solid ice down here. 
  2. I REALLY wish that we could have gotten some of the snow that all my home-towners got!
  3. I am thinking about getting off of facebook.  I might suspend my membership for a while and see how it goes.
  4. Rory had her 2 year check up on Friday.  Dr. Malone gave her an antibiotic for the remaining congestion in her chest that we have been fighting for 3 weeks.  Unfortunately Augmentin is making my happy girl, really grumpy and she is not resting very well.
  5. We are starting to lay the groundwork for the potty training with Miss Bee.
  6. I am ready to be home with my girlie.
  7. We went back to Gymboree on Saturday after not going for almost a month and Rory was SO excited to see everyone and get to play!
  8. My lower back is killing me.  SWEET!
  9. I want to take Rory to Disney World.  I know that she is too little right now, but I still really want to take her.  Is that bad?
  10. Kevin's bday is coming up...I have an idea of what to get him, but he won't tell me anything that he really wants.

While in line at Walgreens last night, Rory was singing the opening song from Beauty and the Beast.  She does the intro and then skips to her favorite part, in the middle (sorry, for the cell phone video quality).  I have included her version and then the youtube of the actual song too.

Happy Thursday "Litta Peep-a"

Conversations with Rory

Rory has been quite the chatterbox lately.  Here is a sampling of our conversations.

At Target
R: Mommy wears hunna-pants
M: Yes Rory, I wear underpants
R: Daddy wears hunna-pants
M: Yes Rory, Daddy wears underpants
R: Rory wears a diaper
M: Yes Rory, you wear a diaper, but if you start going potty like a big girl, you can wear big girl underpants too.
R: (to the lady passing us in the aisle-very loudly) HEY wear hunna-pants?

At night, after dinner and before bath, I let her run around in only big girl underwear until bath time.  I had gotten her undressed and she was sitting on the bed while I went to get 2-3 pairs of underwear for her to choose from.  I am walking back towards her bed and she is sitting with her legs underneath her, facing the opposite way.
M: Rory (she looks at me over her shoulder)
R: (in her softest, most prim and proper voice) Ohh, pardon me Mommy.

Playing with her play kitchen
R: Here Mommy, you cut this happle
M: Ok, hand me the apple and the knife and I will cut it.
(Rory hands me the knife and I lay it on my leg so that I can grab the handle)
R: Oh no Mommy, knifes cut food, not people
M: Rory, I am not cutting myself, I am turning it around so that I can cut the apple
R: If you not be nice, Rory put the knife away Mommy.
M: Yes ma'am
(At least I know that my message is sinking in)

Kev, Rory and I are in our bed, we are trying to get Rory to take a nap.  Kevin is asking me something (can't remember what)
R: Daddy, you close your mouth now
K: Ok, I am sorry Rory.
(a few minutes later)
R: Mommy, I not takin a nap, lets go shoppin'

After putting her play clothes on, to go outside to play
M: Rory do you want your blue english sandals or your pink tennis shoes (converse high tops)
R: Pink Tennie-Boots

In the car on the way to somewhere
R: We don't bite people
M: No, Rory, we don't bite people
R: Noo, biting is not nice.
M: You are correct, it is not nice to bite.
R: We don't hit
M: No, Rory, we don't hit
R: Noo, hit is not sweet
M: You are correct, hitting is not sweet
R: We don't scweem woud
M: No, Rory, we don't scream loudly
R: We don't poot
M: Let's not talk about pooting Rory
R: Poot has-a big smwell

In the car (again)
R: Where is my pacie
M: You don't need a pacie, Rory, you are a big girl
R: I'm a big girl, I not need a pacie
M: You are right, you ARE a big girl, you don't need a pacie
R: Baby wear a diaper
M: Yes, babies wear diapers
R: Rory wear a diaper.  Rory a baby, Rory needa pacie
(Crap...just outsmarted by a 2 year old)

Girls' Weekend

Sarah and Victoria came down on Thursday, since I was off on Friday, and spent the weekend with us.  We shopped, shopped and shopped some more.  We also had a great time laughing, doing mani/pedis playing with Rory.
I didn't take a lot of pics because we were so busy enjoying each other's company, but I will post what I do have.
