True Love

We have been working with Tessa on saying the long awaited "I Love You." Well, it has been going good, everyday we say "I", and then "Love", and then she yells "You." It's very cute. Then, on Saturday, I say the "I Love" part, and she says "Daddy", but what about Mommy??? She will say Mommy when I prompt her, but she says Daddy first...I am a little sad, but it's still cute. SO, this morning, I put on Baby Einstein Animals for her to watch, and while it's queing up, I say the "I Love" part, and Tessa says "Show"! We do this twice, trying to hold in my laughter, and then the next time she says "TV"! Now we know that she really does understand what love means!

Pillow Talk

So, Tessa has been having a bit of trouble going to sleep lately...can we say 10 pm??? I don't know what happened to my beautiful little sleeping angel, she has always been an 8pm-8am kinda girl. So, we made her a pillow. Let me rephrase...I made her a pillow. Yes, I am quite the seamstress, making a toddler sized pillow. I never thought I would feel so much pride in such a small acomplishment, it's a little strange. And I made a little pillowcase with pengiuns on it for her. (Her favorite show on DiscoveryKids is Paz the penguin). And the pillow is helping her sleep, a little anyways, until the novelty wears off! She just looks so cute lying asleep on her little pillow, that her Mommy made for her...
