Well, right now I am attached to Dad. I cried so hard when he left to go to work!! After I got over that episode me and KK had a pretty good day. I went to swimming again today and really got the hang of lying on my back and kicking!! coach Jack gave me M&M's and a lot of high fives!!
When Mom and Dad got home tonight there was a rainbow outside!!
8/22/2014: Emma: Pops is here!! He took me to the park and then we came home to play some more. I told him all about my big girl bed! I hear tomorrow Dad is going to put it together!!
Em showing Pops her climbing skills at the park.
8/23/2014: What a big day we had! We started the day at a pancake breakfast hosted by Maggie's cheer squad. Em knew everyone there! It was quite funny for everyone to know Emma yet I had no clue who these folks were! KK and Em were celebrities!
After pancakes Brad put the day bed together and me, Pops and Em went sheet shopping for her new bed. After sheets were purchased (and a pink sucker) we came home to finish the bed. Pops and Em hit the park while Brad and I did some serious cleaning in the house. It's amazing how much one can get done when there is not a 2 year old in the house! Thanks Dad!!!
After lunch and no nap, we went to some friends house for supper. Em and her friend Allison played in the pool and sat together at a little table for supper! Em ate her first hot dog (she usually refuses them) and we headed home. Not before Em fell asleep in the car and was carefully transferred to her new bed!
The girls started out in swim diapers, diaper covers and swimsuits. They ended up in swim diapers!
8/24/2014: Em slept all night in the big girl bed! We are still a little hesitant to get too excited about this as she did not actually fall asleep in the bed. We will see what tonight brings!! No nap today but hopefully a good night sleep tonight!
8/25/2014: Let's see, Today was no school day but Swimming lessons. I am still impressed with Maley's swim school and how much they have taught Emma. Going from a girl who did not like to get in the water to swimming underwater in 4 weeks, I'm sold! This should be handy for our upcoming beach trip!!!
Em napped in her bed today which made all of us very excited. Tonight when she was fussing about going to be in her big girl bed I asked her why she would nap in the bed, yet not go to sleep at night in the bed. She responded quite frankly and rather quickly, "momma, it was an accident, I didn't mean to fall asleep":)
Sister Emma is really throwing Mom and Dad for a loop with this new bed thing!! All they talk about now a days is how to get Em to fall asleep in the big girl bed! I feel I have a lot to learn once I get out of my current environment.
8/26/2014: Em ... and Brad and I... are struggling with this new bed. She likes to play in it but sleep is hard to find. Tonight I decided to build a pillow fort in her bed and see if that would encourage her to stay in the bed. Not so much, But a dada in the bed helped a little girl fall asleep!
Tonight I had a long conversation with Em to discuss why she did not like to sleep in her new bed. She replied, "Momma, it is just different than my old bed". Quite true Emma, I did not have a good reply to that one!
In the pillow fort "spraying" bad dreams away with her mist bottle.
Today I had school and swimming. I learned my initials in school and learned to float in swimming! I am not too keen on floating but I guess it's just one of those things you have to do!
When Mom got home we ate supper and then I went to time out...a lot! You see I'm a tad tired from my poor habits these past few nights and I think it's catching up with me!
Tonight Mom told me I could have a doughnut in the AM if I went to bed and was quite as a mouse.. sounds like a good deal to me!
Today Em wanted to get ready for swimming tomorrow by taking all her swim diapers out of the package and putting them back in.
