I have no idea what to do with Reagan she continues to destroy her room at night, I stupidly put back the footstool to the rocking chair and tonight she climbs on the dresser takes down and takes apart the music box, wiped the entire container of baby vicks on the closet doors and the back of the rocking chair, shook her (no drip) cup of water out all over the floor, smeared lotion onto the carpet behind the rocking chair and had the baby vicks smeared in her hair. The lights were on and she was asleep.  I was worried about her sleeping with all the vicks all over her so I had to wake her up and give her a bath.  She says she did not eat it and I don't think she did, but it still makes me nervous.  Everything she got was in the middle of her dresser so after climbing she had to lean to get it.

She's exhausted but I have no idea how to get her to sleep, I've tried leaving her alone she wakes up in the morning fine, doesn't seem tired, naps during the day and the routine is always the same and apparently that is not working the girl needs to sleep.  Ever since we took away the Yi-Yo she's been doing this, I really want to give the yi-yo back.

Everyone I ask says they've been through it, they'll eventually sleep, 3 months and not happening, no one has any advice, just wait it out. I don't want to wait anymore, I want her to sleep. I tried googling, nothing applies.  Why does she destroy everything and why won't she sleep?! If anybody has any advice whatsoever please give it to me I have no idea what to do!

Fan Day at the Diamond

This morning we went to Fan Day at the Diamond.  It was the first day you could buy tickets and they had the stadium open so you could go on the field, and sit in the dugout. 

There were games in the outfield and the girls ran around for a while and we pitched the wiffle ball to them, they both hit it quite a few times!

There was a hamburger eating contest but it was even too much for Tung.  There were 3 rounds the first 2 you had to eat a double patty hamburger, with 2 mozzarella sticks, bacon and cheese on it with a serving of curly fries.  Round 3 was a hot dog topped with chili and cheese sitting on 2 fried pickles and curly fries.  About 5 people attempted it, one guy was eating so slow we think he just wanted lunch.

Payton is always so small she can never bounce in the bouncy houses, but today anyone could bounce or joust, so Payton had a blast.  Reagan didn't want to bounce.

We saw Nutzy and had our picture taken with him, neither one wanted to see Nutzy's new friend Zinger the Acorn, he was a short chubby blow up character.

We got to try corn dogs and dorito nachos for free and Payton and I sat in the little arena race car. Joe Gibbs actually raced this car himself, it was all beat up in the front from where he wrecked it. It was fun to sit inside but I couldn't have driven it because my legs were too short, I couldn't reach the gas and brake.

Can you find me in this picture?

Reagan had fun sitting on the warning track scooping up the gravel.

It was very windy but not cold at all, we had a lot of fun.
