B is for binkie

B is for binkie.

So, yesterday, I took Mini Me to Babies R Us with me as I bought a ton of little stuff we needed to get for the upcoming arrival of "baby sister". Just random stuff like bottle brushes and binkies.

Um, yeah. That's where the issue is. Mini Me is very uncomfortable having binkies around. When I picked them up in the store, she started yelling, "no, put them back! put them back!"

I have tried to explain that they are for "baby sister" but she still doesn't seem happy about it. She certainly isn't acting likes she wants to use them, so I think she is exhibiting some "I'm a big girl, don't make me use baby stuff" behavior. All of this has to be confusing for the poor child. I mean, we tell her she's a big girl for using the potty so well, and sleeping in her big girl bed. But, at the same time, we have been brought in a crib, bottles and binkies that she associates with babies, without a baby in sight. Ah, the mind of a 2 year old....

B is for baseball

B is for baseball.

Last night, we took Mini Me to see a baseball game. No, it wasn't a major league game, but a little local game. She really has no clue of the difference (to tell you the truth, I couldn't distinguish between AA, AAA or whatever the different designations for minor league ball are either. That's hubby's job.).

But, Mini Me LOVED it. She was so excited to see baseball live. She stood there, along the rail, watching the game for quite a while. She clapped, cheered, and danced. She high-fived the mascot, narrated the game for us, and yelled for the players. Of course, she also had her fill of cotton candy and ice cream.

She lasted through 7 innings, and when hubby and I decided that since it was after 7:15, we would head home, she didn't even fight us. She held our hand and asked if she would see baseball again. And, surprisingly enough, despite having enough sugar in her system to fill a sugar bowl, she came home and went to bed without so much as a hint of resistance.

It was a wonderful summer night. Our next new adventure might be the drive-in.... We'll see.

F is for Furniture!

F is for Furniture!

It's HERE! On Saturday afternoon, I got a phone call that the furniture was in. And, when discussing whether to have it delivered or go get it, they said that they were really slow and could deliver it either Sunday or Monday. Woo Hoo! So, 8:30 Monday morning, and the furniture was here, in the house!!!

Yay! The guy who brought it, was the same man who delivered Mini Me's original crib 2.5 years ago. So, now, thanks to MIL & FIL who were here to help plan/move/disassemble/assemble stuff with me, the furniture is set up in the room. I still have a little decorating to do, but I am very happy to at least be able to do it now!

And, happily enough, Mini Me is now napping in her new big girl bed, and didn't even fuss about the change.

So, here are the preliminary pics. I still have to get a lamp, iron and hang the curtains, put sheets in the crib, move Mini Me's wall letters, and (once this baby is named) make new wall letters. But, I think it's coming together nicely.

E is for Early

E is for Early.

It's too EARLY to be up!

Around 4:30 this morning, Mini Me was in her room, apparently awake, because I woke up to the sounds of her musical toys blasting away over the monitor.

Good times. ::Yawn::
