Today is a better day than yesterday because the sun is shining. I still have a sore throat, Layla is still cranky and teething, but Sanaa has been pretty good. We've only butted heads once today and that was at nap time when she wouldn't stay in her bed and kept disturbing Layla. It's nice to have a fairly good day with the girls after having so many rough ones.
Sanaa with the 20 balloons. I took this on Sunday. So far none of the balloons have ended up on the ceiling and amazingly they all still have air! However, having 20 balloons in the house is getting a little tiring since I'll turn a corner and walk right into them. (Thanks a bunch Gramma Carol!)
Sanaa didn't like her peeps and gave one to Layla. Layla loved it! She chomped right down on it and ate about half of it.
Sanaa has been doing a lot of painting this week. Gramma Carol gave her a pencil holder to paint which she was quite excited about. She's also been painting on paper and attempting to make different things. This morning she tried to paint Tinkerbell. I overheard her saying, "Dat's Tinkerbell. Arms, legs, eyes, eyebrows."
No one ever warned me the second child would get into so much mischief. I cannot take my eyes off of Layla. Here she pushed an empty toy basket from the living room to the dining room and tried to climb up onto the dining room chair.
And now Layla has had enough of the hugs.
