Sneaky, Funny Jill
Jill was very proud of the bed that her daddy made. She has told me many times that her daddy made it. She likes playing on it, sitting on it, putting her dollies on it, etc. However, she does not seem to like sleeping in it.
The first night she left the room a few times, ready to party. Once she could no longer open her door to leave, there were a lot of tears, and eventually Jeff went in and put her back in her crib.
Last night, she did not cry very long, so I foolishly thought she had gotten used to her new bed.
When I went in to get her this morning, she was back in her crib. She had hiked herself up and climbed in.
Her crib can turn into a toddler bed, but we had wanted to use it as a crib for Daniel. Perhaps we will end up returning her new, beautiful toddler bed and just buying a new crib instead and turn Jill's crib into a toddler bed. Sigh.
I have not fed Jill breakfast yet this morning, because I'm a bad mommy and wanted to blog really quickly. So, she's drinking her milk and eating a few goldfish crackers. She finished her milk, and I asked her if she wanted more milk. She wouldn't say. She just kept talking about her birdhouse that, yes, her daddy made. (She is pretty impressed by him.) (So am I.) :D
So, slightly exasperated, I told her to just say "yes or no." Just say "yes or no" if you want milk. She looked at me and said "yes o no." Hahaha. She doesn't seem to grasp the "or" concept, but she did do what I wanted. I told her to say that id=f she wanted milk, so I decided she must want it. (And turns out she did.)
It is often funny how literal children are.
In the picture of Jill above, she is wearing a skirt and shirt that her bunny (GranB) made her. My mom also made the purse. The purse matches one that my mom made me a few years ago, and she had leftover fabric. Cute, huh? :)
And here is a picture of Daniel on his blessing day. He is wearing the same outfit that his daddy wore when Jeff was blessed. (In my church, babies receive a name and a blessing.)
