Tonight Tessa crawled onto our bed sprawled out soother and blankie in hand and pronounced- this the luckiest day ever!!
 I feel the luckiest to be her mummy.
She told Grandma Bertha when we left her this eve. "That was so special". Made me sorta laugh!
She hears so much more than I can even believe and picks up on things I say. She's too little to be saying such grown up stuff, isn't she?
Tessa was talking on her Fisher Price phone to Mia the other day and informed her - " I'll be 'round shortly".
And on and on I could go.. I don't want to forget these days so I must write them down.
Nighty night.

{and now I lay me down to sleep}

at 2 years and 3 months I think we are finally conquering the sleeping in your crib all night.
But not with out some stipulations on T's part- bankie, sooder, Apple juice and for the last week her "chicken book".
(Blankie, soother, and The little Red Hen book.) I tuck her in and she says- I read my chicken book mummy?
She loves books and another favourite these days is the Sears wish book which she calls "the Bawbie book". Because, Barbies!! she's not a girl for nothing.
She'll look for lowly worm and gold bug in the Richard Scarry books endlessly... And then there is "sister Bear"... We read and read or just look at pictures...
What are your kids favourite books?

{moving mountains}

How many of you moved mountains today?
I only realized i was moving mountains when i loaded up my huge pile of dirty laundry that had been spread on the floor. Tessa had been walking on it and jumping off, but when i scooped it up she yelled- no no thats my mountain mummy. Don't take my mountain!
but no way was i going to leave that smelly pile of clothes laying there...

you never know when your mountain will get moved!
Sometimes we don't even want it moved and then just like that it's gone!
