Two days one night

Boy am I tired. No really wore out. Sleeping with a baby that rolls kicks and cries out is torture. Foot in the face at 2 am is not something you forget real fast. She went to bed early and woke up with a nightmare. Then she wouldn't settle down until she got in my bed.
Imagine that. Sleeping with grandma is more fun. The two older ones were the same way.

She had her second nap and she had sunscreen a visor and she is holding a cool drink in her hands off to the lawnmower with grandpa. We weren't sure if she would wear the visor, but she left it on her head and didn't even fuss over it. I thought it would shade her eyes. Need to get her sunglasses for being out in the yard.

She has grown up so much in the last year. She is talking some now and says most of her words pretty clear. She will be 17 months on the 2nd of August. We went shopping and bought 3T clothing. She is tall and has a  long waists. Then a neighbor brought a big bag of jeans in her size that were her great granddaughter's. So that will help out this fall and winter.

Still needs some hoodies and long sleeved shirts and she will be ready for cold weather. My Mom suggested looking at boys shirts. They are cheaper price wise than girls things are. No pink or purple, but the crayon colors are good no matter what. I thought I could add some small lace or trim of some kind to doll them up.   Also need to look for a pattern to make some flannel button up the front shirts. I think with jeans that would be cute also. Well off to the bedroom soon and watch a movie.

We have decided we are better grandparents then we were parents. I think it is because we have more time to spend with the little ones. Have a good evening. Chris
