Toddler outings

I have been looking for things to do with Audrina for when the weather gets nice during the upcoming Spring and Summer and Fall. We recently went to the Secret Garden at the Mirage which was really fun, I have been plenty of times but Frank never has. Audrina loved the dolphins she was just watching them swim and come up out of the water she was screaming and yelling it was so fun. she didnt care much for all the other animals she just wanted to run and be free. Then we went into the hotel and she played on the rainbow floor which was very cute we will be doing that again! So I am thinking the shark reef in the summer and the mermaids at the silverton also, I love this age it is so much fun. Our Disneyland trip is coming up soon we are so excited and cant wait! I am still researching what to do in CA Adventure they have playhouse disney shows which im sure Audrina will just love.

Our valentines day started Friday night, Frank and myself went to see Valentines Day such a good movie I am totally going to get it when it comes to dvd, then we went to dinner at BJs which was so good!! On Saturday Frank washed the cars and vaccumed all of Audrina mess out of mine the usual cheerios, crackers, and trix all smashed in the the seat and floor. Sunday we went to dennys which was packed so we went to the one closer to babies r us where we had to go anyway it was a long wait but always good and Audrina ate 2 full pancakes plus all the snacks we brought her along with her water. Then we were off to Babies R Us, we are contemplating getting a smaller more compact stroller, we ended up getting Audrina diapers, a new high chair well table chair, a swim suit, new silver sparkley sandals, and some wooden blocks. I wanted to stop at Kohls on the way home to get Audrina the last set of little cardboard books that she just loves as well as I do, she cant rip the pages or break them she now has the Mickey Mouse, Toy Story and Princess books. She just loves books she always bringing them to us sitting in our lap for us to read. Our last stop before we went home was to walmart to pick up some medicine for Frank as he wasnt feeling to well, that ended up in Audrina getting the new Minnies Bowtique movie and Frank getting a new ps3 controller and something else ps3. It was a good day...later we went to my moms to get our gifts from her and some tacos. Yum.

You are the Author

While I was watching day time talk show TV yesterday another mom said we are the authors to our childrens book of life. I have been thinking about this and I have realized this is very true at least for me I am home with my daughter all day everyday she learns most of what she knows from me, my actions and reactions. My new year resolution was to curb my horrible language so my 1 year old does not run around repeating my verbage and also because I will be a teacher soon. I am trying to write her a good book, one she would appreciate when she gets older. I am impressed with her learning ability she is so smart she knows what she wants and she knows how to get it she is very vocal and thinks she is an adult sometimes I swear. She knows who the important people are in her life she has plenty of Grandmas (6 to be exact) Grandpas Aunties Uncles and cousins that she just loves to give hugs and kisses too and spend time with. With this we have also come to the agreement to get Audrina blessed soon, after talking It over with Frank we decided she is going to be brought up Christian for now and is free to choose whatever religion she wants as soon as she wants.

I have also come to the realization there are certain people that we come across in life that don’t deserve the time or effort to worry about. We have so many wonderful people in our lives as well as Audrinas that we don’t need the leaches sucking good life away.

No Gummy Bears before bed

To encourage my dear daughter to sit on her potty I brought some gummy bears for bribery, and indeed they work she will sit on her potty and she gets a gummy bear. I got her a potty not to force it on her just to get her used to the idea of peeing in the potty. She loves the potty song and asks me to sign everytime I am on the potty, she also says pee pee and potty so we are on a good routine with that. Needless to say I got home from school at about 8 last night and we were on the potty with gummy bears, Audrina was up at 10 running after me screaming trying to attack. It was hilarious yet I was ready for bed, so needless to say no more bears before bed!

On a better note thanks to Super Why on PBS we can say A-E and random ones after that shes very good at ba for B and pa for P and Da for D.

Spaghetti Lunch Monday

Since I decided to skip out of class an hour early only missing an hour long movie I could watch at home, I decided to give Audrina some left over spaghetti for lunch. She loves to eat anythign when she is in the mood to watch some tv. Shes so cute I just cant resist taking pictures of her just being cute!
On another topic last night on our way home from dinner Daddy passed gas in the car a very stinky gas I may add and Audrina gets a horrid look on her face and says "Stinks" she had me and Frank laughing so hard. I am so proud she knows daddy stinks!!
