Again With The Matching

I watched my friends one year old today and Casha was an absolute basket case. She stressed the fact that the baby took puzzles apart but didn't put them back together again. She also wouldn't allow the baby to put the Pop On's in the "wrong" place. She made that poor child match the colors.
I'm beginning to wonder if my child is sane. I'm also wondering just how on earth her baby brother is going to survive her craziness.

Building Towers

I just should have put toilet paper on her Christmas list.

Blocks or Books?

I promise this does not happen on a regular basis.
She was rather proud of herself as it took quite a bit of work to get these books to stand on top of one another.

A Race Car!

One pink stool + four rolls of toilet paper
+ one crazy 3 year old = A RACE CAR

Chef's Hat LOL

Her First Weapon?

I'm not quite sure what to say about this one but it seems she's built her first weapon, a blowgun.


It was rather convenient, given my current state, that Casha really wanted to be a princess for Halloween this year.


Keeping Busy

This is what we do with the boxes from Costco.

She Still Loves Him

After a couple of months you'd think the love would wear off but that is so not the case.

Right Foot, Left Foot

We were getting ready to run to the store today and Casha was sitting at the bottom of the stairs putting her socks and shoes on.
She happened to be putting her right shoe on her left foot so I told her that she needed to switch her shoe to the other foot, her right foot. She looked at me, pointed to her left foot and said, "This is my right foot and", while pointing to her right foot said, "this is my left foot."
I attempted to correct her and pointed to her right foot saying, "This one is your right foot."
She looked back up at me after paying very close attention to what I'd said and told me, "I changed my legs." and went about putting her shoes on.
I about fell over! LOL

Last Chicago Visit

Well, we bit the bullet and travelled to Chicago to have Casha evaluated by a new AVT. We learned a lot and had some thoughts and ideas confirmed. We're very pleased with the outcome and have lots to think and chat about. We are a little bummed that we used our last possible Chicago visit as a working visit but it was worth it. We do hate travelling all the way up there, using my parents house as free room and board/dog sitting service, and then we barely even see them. They tend to get shafted because we try to combine visits with other people and do other things and then they're usually seeing Casha when she's at her absolute worst. We had hoped to visit with family once more before baby arrives and had been planning a museum trip with Casha:-( I guess it will have to wait until after baby.
And, of course, now I'm feeling sick because I pushed myself too hard. Time to rest and recuperate.

Casha's First Bath

First dog bath, that is.
She's always just watched me give the dog a bath.
She wanted to help this time and so she did.
Doesn't the dog look thrilled? lol ;-)

My Baby Brother

Casha is very proud that she got her own copy of this picture so we're posting it here, too.

My dog may never forgive me LOL

Cinnamon's earrings! LMAO

How she loves something so much that is so ugly, I just don't know. LOL
I thought her desire for a skeleton was halloween obsession but I was wrong. She's actually getting into anatomy the past couple of weeks.
She's so strange! LOL
He goes everywhere with us, even the doctor this morning.

And, he watches a quick video with us while we get breakfast going so we can get out the door. But not without Skeleton.

His name is Skeleton, by the way. I tried to get her to choose an actual name but she wasn't having it so Skeleton it is.

All Dolled Up for Daddy

She said, "I have to make Cinny look pretty for when Daddy gets home."
That apparently requires a party hat, tape measure, and barrettes.


She actually looks like me!
OK, so it's not the spitting image as it is with her father, but still.
And, maybe it's just the ratty hair.
I always seemed to have ratty hair in pictures when I was a kid.
lol That was sometimes due to the fact that I cut gum out of my hair
but that's neither here nor there.

Brownies for Daddy

Because he's coming home today!
She's so excited to see Daddy after his being gone for a week.

Once again, my poor dog

Cinnamon apparently makes a great coloring table. lol

I wonder if this will continue

Digging for worms and pulling weeds. How is it a 3 year old already knows which plants are hers and which are weeds?
She had quite a bit of clover and weeds piled up on the edge of the drive way for Daddy to throw away for her.

One letter per tile and organized by color.

Oh wait a minute, I know. Her FATHER! LOL

What you've all been waiting for :-)

Today was Casha's first dance class and she had an absolute blast! She thoroughly enjoyed herself, as you can see from the pictures below, and is looking forward to returning next week.
YAY! Ballet!

She started dancing before any of the other girls had arrived.

Today was ballerina day so they had tutu's.

Dance partners are provided.

Brings back memories of one of my recitals I absolutely HATED!
Or was it just the girl I had to dance with?;-)

Story time!

A coloring page and then we go home.
Of course, Casha was one of the first to start coloring and was not pleased that she could not finish coloring her picture before leaving but I assured her she'd be able to finish it at home. lol

Might wanna build an ark!

We woke to quite a bit of water on the bathroom floor Saturday morning so off to the hardware store we went. We were, of course, side tracked by Halloween decorations but then got down to the business of finding the correct piece to repair our poor broken toilet.
We decided, while chatting about the broken toilet, that we would put our diaper sprayer in at the same time. For those of you who might not be aware, a diaper sprayer is simply a kitchen sprayer hooked to a hose coming from the water line behind your toilet. You can spray the bits out of cloth diapers right into the toilet without having to get your hands "dirty". Clever eh?
Ryan certainly wouldn't have been able to complete this project without his assistant.

Ever the Princess,
still willing to get her hands dirty:-)

Connecting the hose for the sprayer.

We've got a diaper sprayer! YAY me!

Love Me Forever!! Who Couldn't?
