T: Toddling, Turkeys, Tomatoes

Dear Maya,

Mommy is sitting here trying to remember the last week and it's kind of a blur. Until this morning, your insanely early wake ups were making our heads spin with exhaustion. However, after a quick glance through mommy's sleep bible (Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child by Dr. Marc Weissbluth), we had a plan. This morning when you woke up at 4:45 with a dirty diaper, we changed you without speaking and put you back in your crib. After a few whines, you laid down to sleep until 7:45! Yeah!


Our big event last week was our trip to the county fair! We didn't cover nearly as much ground as we had last year, but you weren't in a stroller. You especially loved looking at the turkeys, llamas, cows and wild animals, and the "Santa trees" and pumpkins in the four season-themed landscaping contest.

We went on the Ferris wheel together and then you saw the 'zipper' and wanted to ride that, too! Luckily the merry-go-round and helicopter rides distracted you. You also wanted to try an obstacle course with daddy, but when you were too scared to go down a chute you had to be let out.



It was a great day at the fair but we were all so tired that mommy didn't have the energy or patience to take you to the farm for our crop share the next day. Instead I went without you after daddy got home and it's amazing how many cherry tomatoes ended up in our fridge compared to previous trips when so many ended up in your belly! You did get to eat plenty of tomatoes this week, though, since that was our key word for our letter "T" study. You caught on pretty quickly.


 Well, off to bed for this mama. Love you!
