Now that Ellie is in school, Paige and Emma have become little pals! Emma no longer likes to lay on her back, so I prop her up and she is quiet content until she wiggles over.
The other day I was trying to get in a workout. You moms out there know how this is. Anything that you are trying to do, it is crucial that the kids are set up doing whatever it is that will make them happy at the moment. For Paige yesterday, it was watching The Rescuers on the portable dvd player on the couch with her "me me". I had Emma's bottle ready so at the first bit of fussyness, in it goes! Trying to keep the heart rate up while making the kids comfortable is a little tricky at times. Anyway, I guess Paige thought that it was a good idea to move Emma a little closer to the tv so she could see better. Well, needless to say I saw what was happening in slow motion, dove over the coffee table and caught Emma in mid air as she was falling head first off the couch. Talk about getting your heart rate up. Who needs aerobics? Just thought I would share a morning in the day of the Thompson family!!


Our big girl!

Tonight Paige got out of bed three times just to tell us she loves us! Look at that smile. How can you get angry? I told John, the next time she gets out we're taking away her blanket, spank on the tush, something? Then we see her little fingers wrap around the corner of the wall. That's it!!! I begin to act stern and with tears she says, but I just love you. Oh, melt my heart.
Well, our little Paige is three! She loved all the attention, and forget the presents, all she wanted to know was when it was time to eat the chocolate cake! At Costco we let her pick out what ever cake she wanted. She even passed up the fancy decorated cakes and went straight for the Chocolate Lovers Delight. She's a girl that knows what she wants.
Every year for the kids B-days we get them a balloon and tie it to the end of their bed when they're sleeping. When they wake up in the morning they are sooooo excited. It's just a really fun way for them to start out their special day. I thought the one John picked out this year was a little scary. I would not want to wake up in the night and see that big smiley face looking at me. Paige absolutely loved it!
Thanks to everyone for all the gifts she received!
Pure delight!! Don't we all wish we could do this guilt free! Maybe just when no one is looking!!! Life just doesn't get much better!
