This blog is to chronicle my life as a mom to my beautiful daughters Alayah, Amarah, and Ayanah. I wake up everyday grateful they are in my life and that God entrusted me to be their mommy.

We went to see "The princess and the frog" again today, but this time we took my god daughter and a friend with us. We had a lot of fun. We came home and had a bath and Alayah ended up falling off my grandma's bed and wacking the corner of her eye on the stereo system. I can't wait till we can have more fun girls day outs.
I got Alayah all dressed up and planned on taking her outside to take her pictures since it was so nice. Well she was not in the mood as you can see, so we ate lunch at the mall and walked around. She fell asleep on the way home with her foot propped in her cup holder. She is so funny.
These jammies are 24 months so I put them on her to get pictures of her in them...They were pretty snug. I wish she didn't have to grow so fast. I went out with some friends tonight, but after a couple of hours I just missed my girl too much, so I came home.
Alayah came running in crying tonight because she had asked to go without a diaper and had peed her pants. She was so upset and I was trying not to laugh because it was kind of funny. I tried to reassure her it was okay.
My poor baby still has dark circles around her eyes. I hope she gets over this cold soon
She did oh so much better today at tumbling. I was worried she would be worse today since she is still fighting her cold. We always stop at Burger King and get her chicken nuggets before class and eat them in the car. She enjoys getting to play up front. I bought her a new leotard in Denver this weekend so we had to try it out tonight.
She didn't have any temper tantrums the entire time. She also participated in everything and even completed a couple of tasks she is supposed to be learning to move up a level. I was so proud of her. Let's hope this good behavior carries over to next week :)
Alayah is still sick so I had to stay home again today. Today she decided to test her limits all day long. First she decided to paint the bathroom door with gogurt...and then blamed it on the dog lol. Then she took her jello and dumped it all over her bed. *sigh* We were definitely butting heads today. I did however enjoy another day off work :)
I had to stay home from work with Alayah today since she is still feeling pretty rough. She is still battling a fever even with Tylenol and Motrin. She took a four hour nap today which was awesome. I also picked up her pictures from her two year old session and bought a frame at Hobby Lobby to put it in...Now I need to find a place to put it on the wall :)
We headed home from Denver today, but first we stopped by the Denver Aquarium so Alayah could see the fish. She really loves fish and has enjoyed the aquarium in the past, but today she wasn't in the mood. She was really whiney and clingy the whole time we were there. I wish I had known she was getting sick because three hours from hom she started screaming "owie." I felt to bad for her. She cried almost the whole way home. I had to take her to UrgentCare when we got back into town and she had double ear infections and pharyngitis. Also she had a fever of 103. My poor girl. I thought tubes would eliminate the amount of ear infections she got, but so far they haven't done anything on preventing them.
Alayah modeling her new pajamas and feeling horrible
We spent the day shopping. We were so tired by the end. Alayah did really well for having to be stuck in strollers, carts, and the car for most of the day. I was really proud of her. We went to an Italian buffet for dinner and she ate a whole plate of pasta. She even slept in her stroller at the mall which was amazing lol.
Alayah was trying to change her own diaper in the hotel room lol
We are headed to Denver for a little weekend of shopping. I am so glad to be getting away for a few days. Alayah was eating her quesadilla from Qdoba and wanted me to take a picture of her and I was happy to oblige. :) She did pretty well for the four hour drive. I was worried she would cry the majority of the time.
I absolutely love this picture of Alayah. I had the day off today because Alayah's daycare was closed and I couldn't find anyone else to watch her. We chilled around the house for awhile and then I decided to take her outside and take some pictures of her before it started snowing. She was not very cooperative, but these two pictures turned out really cute.
One the tumbling front she did much better tonight and there were no fits whoo hoo...She still was a little wild, but she wasn't screaming so I could deal with it lol
Nothing really exciting to report today. I spent 2 hours at the photographers trying to figure out which pictures I was going to order and again spent way too much money. Oh, well. They are only little once. Alayah thinks she can break dance so she always busts out a somersault when she dances.
Everyday it seems we go from this: to this: Every five minutes.
I wish she wasn't so moody, but I know it's just part of her age. She is learning to use her words better lately, so I am hoping that will begin to help her frustrations. On another note...she won a prize today at daycare for using the potty all day with no accidents. Yay Alayah :)
We slept in today and I tried another heart design on Alayah's hair. She is so funny lately, because she is really into dressing herself and sometimes her fashions are a little crazy.
She was running around in her pull up and her squeakie shoes and she wouldn't let me put any clothes on her. Her outfit was a little big this year, but cute none the less. We went out to lunch and then went to see "the princess and the frog" again, since it was at the cheap seats. All in all it was a great day spent just me and Alayah. Later in the evening we went out to eat with her Nana, but it didn't last long as Alayah wouldn't sit still and was misbehaving. I found her these cute slippers at Claire's today for $1.00 and they went perfect with her princess jammies.
I tried another heart design on her today. I didn't like it as much as yesterday's design. I had planned a surprise birthday party for a friend at my job, so my grandmother and Alayah had a sleep over in her living room. Notice all the blankets. She always has two or three with her at bedtime. She is too funny
I tried out this heart design for Alayah to sport at her daycare's Valentine's party today. I thought it turned out really cute. I am writing this post a week late and I can't for the life of me remember what we did on this day, so this post is short and sweet.
Alayah has been requesting to sleep with one of her babies every night now. It so sweet to find her cuddled up like this with her baby. I sewed her a pillow case with satin material in hopes that it will help out her hair. The hair on the back of her head is so dry. Her father went with us to tumbling tonight and of course she did everything she was supposed to because he was there. *sigh* It is kind of frustrating for me that he gets it so easy. He doesn't have to do any of the hard stuff, but reaps all the rewards of my hard work. I love her lips. They are so smooch-ablelol
Alayah loves crafts. She would paint all day long if I would let her. I bought this cheap hand print making thing at Target and it came with paint, so I let Alayah paint it by herself. It was a gift for her Nana on Valentines Day.
She is so meticulous and gets so excited doing crafts. I think we may have an artist on our hands.
