Whining is certainly something that is not tolerated in our house. I have worked really hard on teaching Aadelyn to use her words when something isn't going her way. I realize that she is only 2 years old, however, she understands what we say and I believe that teaching her early on will be far … Continue reading Monday Mealtime Musings… Using your words.
This week we learned about all things D. It was kind of a dreary week, cool and rainy more days than not.

Dinosaurs were big … Continue reading A Dreary but Delightful D Week
We are just getting ready to say 'c' you later! to C week. We had another great LoW week! Aadie also decided that she would potty train herself this week (yay right?) so we ended up spending a lot of time inside and didn't venture too far from home. She's doing awesome though! I'm so … Continue reading ‘C’ You Later!
Last week we started our letter of the week fun! We learned all about the letter A.

She's only 2 so I didn't expect it and it just tickles me to hear it come out of her mouth! Me: Aadie can you please eat your … Continue reading Monday Mealtime Musings… “of course”

I taught her a few baby signs, and she was speaking some real words (Real= understood by unfamiliar listeners with a true meaning attached) around 7 months old.

You know that old saying... I opened my mouth and my mother came out.? Well this week I experienced a twist on it. My toddler opened her mouth and I came out! It happened when we went to pick up our little dog, Remy, at the groomer (remember the poop story from last week??). Rems does … Continue reading My daughter, the super absorbent tropical bird…
