After the girls got up from their afternoon naps we headed out to the park in our neighborhood and played around for a while. We left when I started getting mosquito bites. I hate those things!! There seriously isn't any purpose for them to be alive other than to drink my blood. Can't we figure out a way to wipe them off the planet?? This evening the girl's were having SO much fun playing together. It's fun to watch their relationship grow, and the closer Charlotte gets to walking the more I see Maddie taking an interest in hanging out with her. It's like she finally sees that Charlotte is a kid and a built in playmate! It was a bit awkward though with the two of them under the rug in front of my stove, right at my feet while I was trying to cook dinner. Apparently that particular rug was needed to keep them warm because they were so cold. Never mind all the other rugs, or blankets, or pillows, or throws we have around the house.....they needed the one directly under me! lol So funny. After they were sufficiently warmed, Maddie decided that Tyson was sick and needed a doctor (doctor is her favorite pretend game right now) so she put the rug on him and proceeded to "doctor" him with a bag of coffee. Poor Tyson! But he is a good sport, and they all seemed to have fun.
Here's hoping that tomorrow is as good a day as today. Probably not for Dan though since he is now sick with the cold we are all getting over. Poor Dan.
P.S. I've started letting Maddie pick out her own clothes when she gets dressed and I try really hard not to edit her choices. So, you may be seeing some interesting ensembles in the future. This is the reason why she is wearing a flowery top with a striped skirt.....at least the color pallets match-ish. But hey, maybe it will spark her creativity for fashion and she will be a famous designer when she grows up.
(thus the serious face lol)
