Amen Sista

So Maisey has been jabbering so much lately and I love it! This morning when she woke up she was just laying in her crib talking to her giraffe saying, "Mama, Dada, Mama, Dada" It was so cute!

We sat down for dinner tonight and we put Mais in her exersaucer. She gets all crazy in her exersaucer and bounces up and down and spins around. We said a blessing on the food and we said "Amen" afterwards. Maisey very clearly said, "Amen" after we said it. We thought it was so cute and funny, so Shaun said "Amen" again. And again she said it. We both kept saying it to her and she would repeat it. It was so funny. So besides Mama and Dada, her first word was Amen I guess.

She also ate a tulip today. I gave one to her to play with and I turned my back. When I turned back around, there were only 3 petals left on the tulip. Hopefully nothing was poisonous. But it must have tasted pretty good! (It probably just looked appetizing because it was pink) We will most likely find it in her diaper tomorrow!

Anyway, I am babysitting my cousin's two kids from May 1 to August 1. They are 6 and 3 and pretty wild and fun! It is Friday evening and I am still alive, so that means I survived my first week! Woohoo!!! It actually wasn't too bad. We did some fun things like make maracas for Cinco de Mayo, make puppets for our puppet show, and plant flowers for Mother's day. They always call Maisey "Baby Maisey" and they love to get up close and personal (i.e. always in her face!).

Maisey has also been working on her crawling a lot lately. She doesn't make it forward, but she can go pretty far backwards! Hey at least she's moving!

One more thing, if anyone is looking to indulge in a little dessert, I just ate the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Sundae from Baskin Robbins. (I literally just threw the dish away 5 minutes ago) It was absolutely delicious. I have been craving this sundae since we moved here and we went last Wednesday night to get one but it was like free ice cream day or something and the line was out the door and around the building. So... tonight I FINALLY got it! Yay! :)

I hope everyone has a good weekend. Ours will be filled with shopping. I am on a hunt for a new swimming suit, so if anyone has seen anything cute lately... let me know!

It sounds like you've been keeping pretty busy! Good luck with the babysitting. It can be fun, but tiring. Have a great Mother's Day!

Reading about Maisey made me sad that we wouldn't be seeing her very often anymore. She sounds like she is getting cuter by the minute.

Yummy tulips! I guess they are just at that eating stage because I found paper in Lucy's diaper a few days ago! Lots of fiber I guess! Yeah for surprising diapers!I'm sure it will get worse before it gets better!
