(as soon as we got it up, he wrote "I love you, Taylor" on it) *blush* ;)

Like "sand" tables that are actually filled with rice.
The giant teeth were just cool.
And a giant Lite Brite!
A play grocery store with little grocery baskets, produce bins, tables, and a checkout station that beeped when you passed food by the laser :)
They also have this little craft station where the kids can help themselves. They made hats this time.
This part was new. They had a little science experiment station where they tested surface tension. Kylie spent a lot of time there.
Then we went to Chickfila to get lunch. We were all super hungry and Madi wanted "Chick a lay eye keem!" (Chickfila ice cream)
Then Madi was ready for a nap so we went home and once Madi went to sleep, Kylie and I did stuff. We wrote in our journals first. I wrote in Madi's some while she colored in hers, we did our nails, and used sidewalk chalk on the balcony.
She wanted to draw the solar system so she drew Earth, Mars, Saturn, and the Sun. For some reason that kind of struck me as odd. It seems like yesterday she wanted to draw horses and now she's drawing "Saturn's moons." Yikes.
This one is just cute because she has a crush on Clayton :)
Hopefully we'll have more days like today. Madi and I love having Kylie around and today was super fun. I told her, "you need to come over more!" and she was like "I KNOWWWW!!"

Bought this for her room. I hung it on the wall and she looked at it and said "Aww CUTE!"
We went to Chuck E. Cheese the other day with my niece and parents. This girl LOVED Chuck E. (she's kissing him)
Running and exploring on the way to check the mail.

We ended up buying two big pumpkins and taking them home, and we stayed for a couple of hours even though it was burning up. I asked Madi if she was ready to go and she would say, "no, I want to play!" But after awhile, we all needed some A/C, and food. So we went and had lunch then headed home.
I bought some kids washable paint at Target the other day and decided that I would let Madi paint her pumpkins with that when we got home. I haaate carving pumpkins, like with a passion. So I am not going to do that unless her Daddy is around to help me (or do it for me). So since he was resting for work, we went out on the balcony, laid an old pillowcase under the pumpkins, and I let her paint away.
I thought that she would be hesitant to get the paint all over her hands, but boy was I wrong. She slapped her hand down in the paint and started rubbing it all over the pumpkins. So now we have a purple pumpkin and a pink pumpkin. Our balcony (and us) are a little colorful now. Madi went straight to the bath afterwards and I'm headed there soon. She had a lot of fun though. :) it was a lot funner than carving the huge things too, which in my opinion is just a chore (party pooper, I know).
We're both really tired, and headed to bed. It has been a very long day. But I do plan on posting soon about her success with going from cosleeping, to sleeping all by herself in her big girl bed in her room! Also, more about how we're settling in. Stay tuned :)

Clayton took this at the gas station and told me "don't you dare delete that picture!"
I'm not sure how he took these pictures without falling over.
Took a water/snack break at a park near the water.
We're super photogenic, lol. NOT

We saw Brody this weekend. She kept licking his cheek instead of kissing him! Then she'd giggle and say "I wick him!" She's goofy. Then he fell asleep on my chest for about 30 minutes. Swoon.
Getting lunch before going to daycare/work. She was making funny faces at me so that I could take her picture and then show her.
She's holding a picture of her Great Grandmother (Mimma) when she was around 1 or 1 1/2. They look SO much alike. So I took this and framed it for Madi's Mimi and Mimma. :)
Talking and taking pictures before bed. I love that sweet smile!
