Painted toes

I wanted to paint my toes for Spring so I got out the polish and thought Paisley might like her painted as well. She was very excited and say right down. I tried to explain that she had to sit still and then also had to wait til they were dry before she could get up. I don't think she moved an inch once I started and sat and watched her movie until I picked her up and told her she could move. I think I have a girly, girl on my hands!

Nap Time!

Paisley had RSV. Luckily we caught it early and didn't need any treatment, but we kept a good watch on her. I had to teach Sunday School so Noah and I headed to church while Matt and Paisley stayed home. Matt was working on putting in some new faucets. Paisley was helping, but then disappeared. Apparently the bean bag in her room was a good resting spot. She slept here for a good hour before Noah and I came home.
Later that week while I was working in the basement and Noah was playing wii Paisley decided she needed to take another rest with baby.

Happy Valentine's Day

Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day! We did!

The best we could do getting them together.
I made these bags for the kids chairs. I put them on after they went to bed so they were there in the morning for them to see. They were very excited, but it took them til after nap to realize that there was a treat inside. Paisley is the one who figured it out which was even more funny because she could reach inside.

We are all so BIG!!

We had two big events this for each child.
On Tuesday Noah started his first day of preschool. I have been homeschooling him since the fall with the intentions of starting this coming fall. However, after looking into the preschool and finding out that he could start any time as long as there was a space we decided he was ready to go. He was very excited and has adjusted well. We are still trying to figure out what he has been doing in school since he won't tell us about it, but he is ready to go on his special days (Tuesday and Thursday) and is already walking in by himself without saying good-bye. We are very thankful he has adjusted so well and is having a lot of fun!
Ready to go!!
Paisley is now the proud owner of a toddler bed. I was making her bed this week and put the side down (Yes, we have the now illegal drop-sided crib that will be replaced if another child comes along) and after trying to fix the sheet the side popped off. I couldn't just the leave the railing half on so I took the other side off and hence...the toddler bed. She is very excited about her new bed and will stay in without any problems so far. It did scare Matt not to have a railing so we took Noah's old rail and have Jerry-rigged it to the side. She is not very fond of this, but we scooted it down just a little so she can now get out if she needs to. Her favorite thing to do in the morning or after nap is to get out of bed and come knock on the door to tell me she awake. (Funny Noah used to do this same thing.)
