Sunday FUNday!

What a great weekend we had! It started Saturday with a stroller walk to Macy's. Zaela fell asleep which gave mom the window of opportunity to spend lots of money on new clothes. Not that I had a whole lot of extra money lining my pockets, but.... she was sleeping and there was a sale!!! I had to seize the opportunity,,, right?? LOL

Today we headed to church. Much to my suprise Zaela played for well over an hour in the daycare room! Just one little fussy moment that apparently a grahm cracker quickly solved! Grandma watched her today during her naptime and I was able to join 3 other single AP's for a nice lunch and conversation!!! Yes, it was nice to actually complete a thought and sentences without tending to my little munchkin and send off my friend Mona , who is leaving next week to get her Janissa!!!! YaY!!

This afternoon Zaela got her water time in!!! She can't get enough of wah-wah and "side"! She didn't even need a swimming suit earlier in the week to join in the neighborhood festivities (check out the pics!) :-)

Unfortunately I do have some bad news to report. It would appear that I am now having first hand experience of the "Terrible 2's" phenomenon that seems to strike at about this time. Zaela now uses the word "NO" frequently and with conviction! She also had her first "let's throw myself on the ground and throw a fit" when I don't get my way episode. Yikes,,,, where did my sweet baby go???? OK, she still has some sugar in her, but WOW am I going to have my hands full!!!

In her Sunday dress!

Who need a swimsuit for a Slip and Slide??? Not Zaela!

Pics from today!

She's not so baby anymore! Just think, when she comes out of those terrible twos, she'll be a wonderful and strong little girl!

Charlotte said...

She is such a beautiful little girl !

I can't wait !


Rebecca said...

Haaaaaaaaaaa!! "No" is Ava's FAVORITE word! All the time!
Great pics woman! 3 weeks!

Love all the photo's - especially the new one at the top. And hey, I'd go slip and sliding fully clothed. The only reason I don't now is because I hate to wear the suit. Thanks for mentioning me - 5 more days!!!!!

Lisa, you have such awesome pictures, I love them! Ah, the word NO and the fits. There's that Ethiopian spirit coming out! Layla does it ALL the time, especially when she doesn't get her "icecreamcone" (yes, it's one word to her). It only gets better!

Well, some time in the not too far off future, you will want her to say "NO" emphatically to boys, drugs, alcohol, white sugar, processed food, etc, etc, etc.

Look at it as practice for then?

She's beautiful and smart and all little girls should be that vocal!


Kristine said...

Too cute!
Isn't it hard not to laugh when she says NO??

MalĂ­a chooses her right to exercise a counter opinion a lot, too, but I really have no clue what "terrible twos" are (even though she is 31 months) according to most moms who discuss it with me! Good luck! :)
By the way, LOVE the crocs and dress pic at the end- she's a character!
