Could it be? A tantrum free day!

Today was blissful! Got up, got my brekkie, kissed the hubby so he could go to work, got my shower, got dressed, prepped little girl's brekkie, she woke up and the day started there. (amazing I got to take care of myself this morning!)

I could not believe it. But I went with the flow anyways. I took the kids out to walmart to get some toddler toothpaste, Aidan slept in the car seat in the cart, Lilly had her harness on and walked beside the cart as we found the paste. Then we saw the crayola sale, chose some new washable markers, then went to the paper section of the store and found the biggest (area) pad of paper we could find and one novelty pad with funny marks on the pages. We went to the cashier paid for it, got back in the car. Got gas while Lilly coloured with the purple marker on the novelty pad in the back seat. We then proceeded to the promised trip to the library to get more "shows" got it all signed out and went home. ALL without incident. The rest of the day went equally well, with a few minor hiccups but no nuclear meltdowns.

We coloured with the new markers and paper most of the day and watched a new "purple dragon" (Barney) then had supper. Daddy had an appt so Mommy was left to do bath and bedtime alone with 2 kiddies. All went off whitout a hitch. Bathtime was not a war zone, bedtime was pleasant with a nice story. All I can say is whoa.

Thank the Lord for miracles.

Pepper and Bananas & the Dress

So this morning Lilly has her usual breakfast, meaning that she always eats her brekkie, so I went upstairs to get something and came back down to find her trying to add black pepper to her sliced bananas! She asked me to add some pepperto them "right there" pointing to a spot on her dish. I tried to explain that while innovative, pepper and bananas might not be the flavour sensation she was hoping for. Now I have to go and clean off the pepper shaker, it's covered in banana guck... ah the life.

Usually every morning it is WWF at our place to try and get Lilly dressed. I was totally prepared the other day for the usual, pile driver, head locks and escapes. The day turned out to be different. We went up to Lilly's room and she picked out an outfit right away and put it on no questions asked and we went downstairs. I was so shocked (and pleased!) that I had to take a picture. (I also think it helped that she knew Grandma and Grampa were coming for a visit that afternoon!)

What a cute little guy!

Our little boy is getting bigger everyday! Look at those cheeks! We are now getting smiles everyday. At last weigh in A was 8 lbs, 8 ozs. He is lots bigger now I am sure.

Tea Time everyone!

Tea time is fun in the play room! All the Little People and the McD's toys get together for a relaxing tea beverage and some cake and cookies.

Merci Beaucoup / Thank you!

Merci Grandma et Grampa Pelletier de la baguette magique féerique. Je joue avec elle beaucoup ! Elle fait un joli bruit !

Thank you Autie Eden for my new friend Huney-Bear. She is lots of fun, I like to try to take her head band off.

Merci Grandma et Grampa Pelletier mes nouveaux dormeurs ! Je peux les porter maintenant. Je suis assez grand ! J'étais de 8 livres, 8 onces il y a une semaine. Je dois être plus grand à ce jour…
