Valentine's Day

I had a coupon for Build-A-Bear and so I thought that Valentine's Day would be the perfect opportunity to use that coupon. I was originally going to take my mom and Aria to Coralridge to use it, but Mom had an eye appointment. Rod, however, wanted to go.

Which is amazing to me because usually he opts for sleep during these kinds of things, especially if he has to get up early to do them. He did get up at 9:30am with us and we went to Build-A-Bear.

Aria points at everything and says that it is her favorite or she loves it. Therefore I showed her all of the animals she could pick from before I had her look again and decide on one animal. She picked a jack russell terrier because it had it's tongue sticking out. "It's kissing!"

Watching her doggy get filled was interesting to her to a point. Daddy naming her puppy took far too long, but she pushed buttons on the computer, which she continued to do while I bought her a little dog bowl for her new doggy.

Then we found a little jack russell and so we had to get that too.

Aria is carrying her two doggies around everywhere. At first they were named "Boy" and "Little Boy" then they graduated to Scooby Doo and little Scooby Doo. Then sometime today one of them became Shaggy.

We've been watching Scooby Doo lately.

Lucky Charms is dog food in this house. She overfills the bowl and makes the doggies eat. Little scooby went to the store with us today. Both of them have to join the huge zoo that she currently has in her crib. She pets them and makes them lick her face.

She's a happy little girl.

Playtime has gotten a little more complicated now. Now we play Diego. She gets to be Diego and I have to be Alicia. I usually start off with something like, "Oh no, Diego, this little bear is lost and misses its mama! You have to find the mama!" then Aria (as Diego) goes to save the little bear as I sing the Go Diego Go! song.

Sometimes I get to be Dora.

Rod is always Abuelito, hee hee hee.

My Funny Girl

Bathtime with Aria was hilarious today. I mixed some dishsoap with some water and she had a playdoh wand to use to blow bubbles. What was really funny was the stuff she was saying. She had me cracking up almost the whole time.

She blew three bubbles and then called out very proudly, "Three bubbles!" She then purposefully popped one and announced, "Oops! Never mind!"

She also picked up a big bubble in her hands and with wide eyes stated, "I can see myself!"

She giggled whenever the bubbles would land on the tub, the whale, or the floor.

At one point she had to pee, and so she made an effort to actually try to pee on the a bubble that hadn't popped in the tub. Yep, my little girl aims her pee to pop bubbles. Her daddy would be proud. Never mind the whole peeing in the tub. Just try to stop her. Luckily, she does get out to poop.

It was a struggle to get that little girl out of the tub when it was time, though. She was having so much fun that she wanted to just keep doing it. Bubbles was the best thing in a long time. She was crying as I made her get out-the mean mommy that I am. Though she calmed down some when she realized that it was story time.

One more Diego show has been replaced by storytime before bed, which is awesome. She watches less TV and she gets read to. She gets to pick out five or so little books and we read. She has Hungry Catepillar memorized now, and I introduced her to Green Eggs and Ham tonight. Story time is a total success now that she is old enough, and has a long enough attention span to actually sit and listen when I read to her.
