Yesterday I was so anxious for my sisters to get here and I was a little bored so I went with my default--shopping. Maggie was able to find better ways to entertain herself but did get a little forlorn with lack of activity.

It occurred to me (after seeing a picture of Karla and Natalie together) that I have not taken very many pictures of us in a while. I don't wanna hear anything about the way I look. These days I rarely get around to wearing makeup, or doing my hair, or....anything really.

Did you notice that Maggie has in her new Keen shoes? These shoes are very expensive but I felt like she needed one good, solid pair for summer that she could really thrash on at the park, in the backyard, etc. It was hard to pay that much though. I don't plan on buying anything that expensive for a while....I think.
My sisters are coming to town later this week so I had Patrick pull the futon mattress up from the basement. Maggie enjoyed it for a moment in the kitchen before it was hauled upstairs. She's been spending her time jumping on it since we've laid it out.

We push a chair up to the sink, put a towel on the floor to catch all the water that ends up down there, then let her at it.

Maggie played with her current fav toys--Thomas and His Friends (Thomas, Percy, James). She looooooves them.

I may have to stop listening to my music in the car. Maggie is able to sing along with almost every song that comes on. Eeek. Some of my music isn't exactly toddler appropriate. I'm impressed at how many of the words she's able to sing. But sometimes its seriously sweet to see her singing her heart out along with Cat Stevens.
When Maggie hurts herself and her dad's around she insists he kiss it better...no matter what the "it" is. After recovering from her latest episode of illness she was playing around and fell on her butt. She whimpered and said "kiss it" while walking backwards toward Patrick. He was kind enough to kiss her butt--literally (it was diapered and clothed, but still...) and they both said simultaneously "all better". Awwwwh.We got some hail the other day so I put Maggie next to our sliding glass door in order to watch it. She immediately asked to go outside and I said no. I did the hug yourself and shake motion and said, "cold, burrrr". She looked at me and, I swear, she rolled her eyes at me and said, "jacket".
I let Maggie use one of my pens and a piece of paper to color (on the couch). She was poking the pen through the paper and writing on the couch instead so I lifted up pen and paper to assess the damage. She gave me a dirty look and said, "hey! stop it!".
She's a connoisseur of candy. I was eating some Hershey's chocolate kisses while she was napping. I heard her stir and when I picked her up from the crib she took one whiff of me and said, "chocolate". I burst out laughing. Then a few days later I discovered a long lost bag of Robin Eggs from Easter. I had the bag hidden behind my back, putting an egg in every time she looked away. She got really close to me and all of a sudden demanded, "egg!". She knew exactly what I was eating!

cheese line up a few days ago?
Paper towels, her favorite pink blanket (meme), two of my purses, the bikini bottoms she regularly wears as a hat, and a potato chip--just in case you were wondering.

Now the problem is that I've found a yummy place to eat that is not only a good half hour drive from home but just happens to sit in the middle of a great shopping complex and directly across the street from some outlets. Patrick will be so happy.

We got off to a pretty rocky start with they daycare thing but I'm so glad I stuck it out. I picked her up today to find a super happy child who according to "Miss Kellie" was a doll all day!
That doll decided that a nap was not going to happen so we spent the afternoon in our backyard. We also found some sunglasses on our trip to the mall that she kept on for a whole 3 minutes at a time--prompting me to buy them. Just watch, she'll never wear them again!
