Once in a while I'll think that Alexis is just copying me when she signs right after I do. Earlier I asked her if she was ready to go to sleep and she was all over copying the sign. I was thinking that she had no idea what she was saying, but then Little Miss marched her butt upstairs, into her bedroom, and closed the door. When she figured out she couldn't get into her crib herself, she opened the door and let me in. Then she signed sleep some more and made me pick her up. She planted a kiss on my check, then lunged for her crib. I guess she was really ready to get some sleep. Bossy kid ;-)

There is a Burgh Baby relative that is all about clean floors. If only we could get Alexis and Tyler together and set them free with their brooms . . .


Hmm . . .

One of the teachers at daycare quit last Friday (and didn't give two weeks notice) so they had to do a major shifting of teachers to keep the teacher to child ratio in line. Somehow, that resulted in the end of the one-year old room. There were three girls in there: Alexis, Ave, and Zoe. Ave is a few weeks older than Alexis and Zoe is a few weeks younger. The three of them have now been moved to the toddler room. I'm not sure how I feel about it, but I think I'm annoyed that they'll be in with 3-year olds. They are just is such different places developmentally. I haven't said anything yet since I am already know as the "difficult parent" (because of the drama I caused to get rid of the trashy teacher--mind you everyone there knew it needed to be done, I was just the loud mouth that got things moving). Anyway, I'm trying to decide on an angle. If anybody has any ideas, leave a Comment. Right now I'm thinking of the "don't move my kid for business reasons, move her because she's developmentally ready" argument. The only problem is that I think she's nearly ready. Ave, on the other hand, is not so ready. And Alexis and Ave can not be split up. That would be like seperating peanut butter and jelly. It's too bad I never run into Ave's Mom; I would gladly put her up to some parental plotting.

I couldn't tell you what these two are planning, but something is a afoot.


Another Milestone

We hit another milestone this week . . . Alexis has mastered the art of taking off her clothes. So far, there hasn't been any cause for a disagreement about when she should take things off. She has been yanking her shirts and pants off for me when I go to put her pajamas on. Yesterday she took her jacket off every time we went in a store. But there hasn't been a "put your clothes back on, young lady" moment just yet. And we haven't had to argue about putting a jacket on before we go outside or anything like that. I'm sure we'll have our moment before too long.

Sit-ups + Alexis = Complications.
