Annie Time

100_2127Tori spent the night with her aunt Annie, while the rest of us went to school. They played outside for a while, and then Annie gave Tori a bath. Tori was having fun in the tub when we got home. She came downstairs and ate some ravioli. Ollie had something to eat, too. Tonight we are going to Target for new shorts. The shorts I got Tori shrunk, and Ollie needs some that will fit around his waist. They both need socks too.

Staying Home

100_2094Tori doesn't want to go back to the sitter's. She likes going outside and being with her aunt Annie and Mama during the day. She's skipped a couple of naps this week. One day they went to McDonalds for 3 hours, skipped her nap and tuckered her out. She also got her month long request to go to the Toy Store. She found a Care Bear she had to have, so it got brought home along with messy Strawberry shortcake ice cream on a stick.

The days she's missed her nap, she's ended up a bit crabby the next day. So she ends up going to bed early on those days. She also went grocery shopping and helped push the cart around when she wasn't jumping in and out of them.

Tori is getting enrolled in 2 swimming classes this summer. Her daddy missed the enrollment dates for the spring semester, so now, Tori will be taking them this summer. She loves the water, so I'm sure she'll love the classes. The only problem may be getting her out of the water without throwing a fit.

Potty training is not going well. She's gone once in the potty and that was by accident. She started going in the tub, but I grabbed her and tossed her on the potty to finish. I hope she isn't as stubborn as Ollie was, but I'm not betting on it.

New Dora Bed

This past week, Tori got her new bed, bedding and room. She's been moved back into the smaller purple room with some of the Dora decor she had before. Eli is already pushing in on her territory, but she doesn't realize she's being bumped. She did get a new twin bed, a new Dora comforter and a princess stool to help get her in bed. The stool is multi-purposed as it has served as a seat to watch TV, a place for her plate and what ever else she can think of.


This weekend didn't include dressing up. Instead it included lots of outdoor time. Tori loves to be outdoors. She threw a fit when she had to come in after dinner. Together, Ollie and tori made 'sand pies', which ended up in their hair after soaking the already wet sand. Then after her nap, they go to run in the sprinkler while I was watering in the new seed. They both ended up getting 3 baths on Saturday including the sprinkler. It was a full weekend outside indeed!
