Today has been a GREAT day! Lately, Maisey has been really cranky and just not really herself. But today, she was back and we got so much done. This morning we went on an hour long walk. She really enjoys walks now, well as of 2 weeks ago. She used to cry in the middle of walks so loud that I would end up carrying her home and pushing the stroller with one hand. But we go on really long walks now and she loves them. When we returned from our walk I put Mais down for a nap and was able to do some house hunting (No, we haven't found a place yet) and take a shower. Mais finally woke up 2 hours later and we went to run errands. We went to the post office, Albertsons, Blockbuster, and Target. She was an ANGEL!!! She was being so good and cute. When we got home we played for a while and read some books. I put her down for her afternoon nap and she went down so well. I made some cookie dough and cleaned up the house for a bit. Then after an hour, I had to wake Mais up to take my brother to work. When I got home I baked the cookies so my mom had warm Applesauce Chocolate Chip Cookies (the best ever, but especially during fall) when she got home. I also made dinner, and cleaned up, did some laundry, bathed my little mermaid, and made this totally cute poster for Mais. She loves to look at pictures on my mom's bulletin board, so I decided to get crafty and make one for her that she can actually touch without getting in trouble. Here is the finished work and I covered it with Contact Paper so she could actually touch the pictures. I did realize that I left my brother off of it though, so I think I am going to replace the picture in the top right corner. I also watched "Made of Honor" tonight with my mom. It was pretty predictable, Ok, VERY predictable, and I wasn't in love with it. Anyway, if you read through all of this, thank you for caring enough. I was just so excited that the one day my daughter decided to be good ALL day, I was able to get so much done. Here are a few pics of what we've been up to.

The aforementioned poster!

Mais is into everything these days! Literally IN!

Maisey sure is growing up! Pretty soon she'll move from climbing in the fridge to climbing on the counters. Good luck! We hope all is well there.
