This is pretty much the exact same age, give or take a week, that Raya started sitting too. I was banking on Brielle taking after Raya when I planned her professional photos for the end of the month so I"m glad she didn't let me down...I wanted some sitting pictures this time! :-)
She sat and played on the floor for quite awhile while I put away laundry...
|This face made me laugh :-P|
Brielle had fun playing with Raya again today...
But as Brielle gets bigger I'm starting to see glimpses of the sisterly bickering to come. Raya does NOT like Brielle toucher *her* toys. Raya screams "uh oh, Mama look! Sissy no!!" any time Brielle plays with a toy that isn't specifically a baby toy haha. Today they were playing with the kitchen set like this:
...and then when Brielle had the nerve to touch "Raya's kitchen" the fridge door convienently slammed into her and made her fall. Yes, Raya was scolded!
Today was one of those days when I was so glad to be a stay-at-home mom. At this age especially it seems like Brielle is learning something new every day! With Raya at daycare I felt like I didn't get to see all of these gradual developments as she learned things. By the time I got home from work, picked her up, made dinner and fed everyone, then it was time for bed! ....and suddenly a month had gone by and Raya had learned a bunch of new things and it was like I missed it all! So thankful I'm getting to relive it again with Brielle...so fun and amazing to watch them learn every day!
Today was also one of those days that made me wish I worked outside the home! LOL...funny how that goes isn't it? Well Miss Raya today wet her pants FIVE TIMES before lunch! Seriously, I have no idea what she was doing! She wouldn't even tell me she was wet either. I swear she was just being incredibly lazy! As much as I hate to admit it I ended up giving her a timeout for wetting her pants b/c I had decided it wasn't an accident anymore. She had a warning and then wet her pants again so in to timeout she went!!! And wouldn't you know, after that timeout Miss Raya never wet her pants again all day. Little shit. Should be letting a daycare provider deal with her pee all day! :-P
Let's finish on an up note, shall we? Today was one of those days that made me so glad I'm a stay-at-home mom hehe :-) Why? Because I'm truly having so much fun planning activities for Raya and I and teaching her things! And she's actually starting to catch on too! This week is letter D week and she is pretty consistently identifying letters A and D....B and C are a little more hit and miss but we'll practicing!
For letter D week we went to the library yesterday and got books on Daddies, Dolphins, and Dinosaurs! We even found a book of dinosaur crafts and so today we did a couple of them. Raya did all the painting--I did the assembly :-)
|She was mad here b/c the blue was all gone. Blue is her favorite color apparently |
because she picks it for everything!
|We did a dino egg baby and a paper plate dinosaur (which Lee says looks like a turtle :-P)|
Lastly, country living at it's finest--a Mama turkey and her babies walking through the yard tonight
|Look at the little babies perking up to listen just like Mama!|
Lee brought Raya out to see the turkeys :-)
