Twinkle Twinkle

Tonight while we were walking, Reagan was making some kind of noise when we really listened, she was trying to sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Too cute! It's the first song we've heard her try to sing.

Jegle Bo Hey!

Reagan is laying in her bed trying to go to sleep repeating over and over Jegle Bo Hey! Jegle Bo Hey! Her very own version of Jingle Bells.

Heat Wave!

Finally it was warm enough today that we could go outside. We went to JCPenney this morning to take Reagan's 18 month old pictures and some of Payton and Reagan together, then drove out to the Red Barn to look at end tables for the living room.
Had lunch at Ukrops, who knows how much longer we'll be able to eat at Ukrops since they will be Martin's soon..and then took Payton and Reagan to the park, they had so much fun. Never fails though there's one crazy mean kid there that makes us say Huh? One little boy says to Payton, I'm 5, Payton says I'm 4, he goes I know because you're stupid. What?! Payton didn't pay him any mind but still what the heck? Another little boy rocked Reagan too hard in the car she was sitting in after I asked him not to and banged her head against the steering wheel. Great.

Then we stopped for ice cream, Reagan was very possessive of her very own vanilla cone with sprinkles and Payton had cotton candy with sprinkles.

Reagan is sleeping, Payton is...well...Payton's in her room at least.

Reagan had her 18 month check up today. She weighs 20 lbs. 2 oz. and is 29" long. She's in the 5th percentile for everything, such a little tiny thing like Payton. They both needed to get their 2nd H1N1 shot. Payton heard shot and said no Mommy, I want it in my nose. She says "Sid the Science Kid went to the Dr. to get his vaccine so he wouldn't get sick and they told him he could get it in his nose instead of a shot so it wouldn't hurt, so I want it in my nose too"
So Payton got the flu mist. Silly girl.

Princess P

I love my Payton, the girl who loves Putter, all things princess and making a mess. Tonight I had put Putter on top of the dryer to wash, I came upstairs after one load was done to add another and put in Putter so she would be done by morning when she woke up, Putter was not to be found, she had gotten up and found her on the washer and she was in bed with her. I cannot take her now, she'll just have to be washed tomorrow.

I love how she spreads out all blankets flat on the ground, downstairs in the living room, upstairs in the hallway, her bedroom and the playroom. All out flat to play. Not always sure exactly what but she pretends and creates.

I also love how if I am sick, or if she stays home and I'm not here how she "runs the show". I felt bad yesterday and slept in the morning and stayed on the couch in the afternoon, Tung's Mom was here with Payton and Reagan. When I woke up, she had painted me a picture..with what paints from where I do not know. Colored another one, taken down the crystal that makes rainbows off the window (she had to climb to do this) and was wearing it as a necklace and had in general just made a big mess. Tung's Mom didn't know any different so she went with the flow, Payton ran the show.
Today I had to go to work and Tung was home with them. Same thing, she had climbed and taken the chapstick from my dresser and smelled like strawberries. Not that any of this was bad but makes me laugh how she never would have even thought to do some of this had I been home. Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing?

She's so observant and it's so cool to see her start to pass her own observations on to things and see her independence and personality come out. Though sometimes that's not cool when she states "Mommy, you're not listening to me!" Spitting back out to me what I have told her, since listening is not her strong suit right now.

I love my Princess P.
