September has arrived

I am not even sure where I want to go in this post as we have had a sort of eventful week.

Sunday we headed off to Mass and while there was some crying and whining it didn't go so bad. She did however smack herself in the face with her sippy cup so it could have gone better. Sunday also brought sickness, of the doggy variety. Poor Bosco was throwing up all day and we couldn't figure out what was wrong. Finally on Tuesday it dawned on us. Our dear child was inadvertently trying to kill him. She loves to share her food with the dogs, usually making a game out of it. She had been feeding him her raisins!! We knew grapes were bad but never translated it on down the line to raisins. We stopped that little game and he seems to be feeling better.

Wednesday brought some interesting news for our little felon. Apparently, our daycare ladies feel she has been saying a four-letter word that rhymes with sit. We think she is probably trying to say sit, as she hears that all the time. Never in the history of our daycare have they ever had this problem in the nursery and they are not sure how to deal with it. They even think she has taught it to another kid. I was embarrassed beyond belief especially since there are not very many words she says consistently. I mean, really, she only says Mom when she is desperate to get her way. None-the-less we are really trying to watch what we say around her as we know we are no angels and have probably slipped in her presence. So if you are keeping track, so far, before the ripe old age of 1 we have a bully, a walker, a potty mouth and an attempted murderer. :) We love her anyway, all her sass and toothy smiles put together.

We can also add to her list of words besides the bad one. Dad, dog, mom, tickle tickle tickle, and EIEIO.

I got into the mail a special craft project for a little girl back East. Hopefully she likes it as much as we enjoyed making it. It only took me three times to find a box to ship it. We also got the invites in the mail for a 1st birthday party. It just doesn't seem possible that she is going to be 1 in a few weeks.

B and I both have a 4 day weekend since I finally got to take a vacation day. I finally feel like I am making some headway on the audits I am working on and it is just in time too. I was out doing fieldwork again today and it went so well that I am probably jinxing the wrap up by gloating.

We plan on painting the spare bathroom tomorrow. I would really like to replace a few other things in there but not sure we should undertake that right now as we get ready for the new windows, Bunco, and the birthday party.

But Happy Holiday weekend to you. If you hung with the rambling you deserve the days off. I had planned on talking about my love of Fall this week, so maybe I will save that for the weekend.

oh we are soooo excited for it and appreciate it so much!

willa is so funny! it's crazy what babies will and will not say at this age. audrey doesn't say any four-letter words (though with her dad, the F-word is not too far away...eek, i am trying to make him work on that!) but she will say "vroom vroom" if she hears a car, "woof woof", "lily" (her lamb), aggie (the dog) and she will attempt "doggie." no mama either unless she NEEDS something...but she ALWAYS says "dada!"

i hope you enjoy your looooooong weekend!
