Thursdays must be the official nap day for Lillie. I wish she would take a nap more often, but we have found that if she napped during the day, no matter how early, she was up half the night. Alex and I would rather deal with a cranky child in the evening than be up at midnight with her. Last week it was the ottoman, this week the computer chair. She was sharpening her pencil and all of a sudden got really quiet. I looked back at her and she was out with pencil shavings all over her lap. After taking a couple of pictures I moved her to her bed. She was a much happier child last night.
While Lillie was napping, I was straightening up my bedroom and looked over to see Gracie using her toes to pick up a pencil. It is a "talent" that both girls have gotten from me, the ability to do odd things with our toes.
I couldn't resist posting this picture of Lillie reading to Gracie. I actually had a video, but you couldn't hear Lillie reading. She has the Dr Seuss book, One Fish Two Fish and is "reading" it pretty accurately to Gracie. It has been one of Lillie's favorite books and with many times I have read it to her, she can recite most of the pages or at least put them in her own words.
Hope you have a blessed weekend.
