Every day I am amazed at what comes out of Presley’s mouth. She picks up on words so quickly and then tries to speak in sentences. Most of the time her sentences are jumbled up along with a few coherent words. lol. But! Sometimes she will look at me and say a full on sentence that is clear as day! I gotta remember today………..
I was outside with Presley watching her swim today and she was taking a long time to get into the water. I told her to go down the slide and to splash, play, and swim. Finally she started playing by herself. ****stay tuned
While we were outside I was sitting at the table and reading. After playing by herself for about 10 minutes Presley came over to me and said, “I want mommy to get in the water.” I told her that I didn’t want to get wet. She was persistent and kept repeating herself and then finally she said, “Come oooon mommy.” How could I say no to that? I got in the pool with her and splashed her for about 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes of splashing it was starting to get really hot, but she was having too much fun so I pulled a chair over to the pool and put my feet in while I watched her play. She started playing and splashing around. I looked at her and said, “don’t splash me Presley, I don’t want to get my pants wet.” To which she replied, “mommy, I splashing and playing.” lol……made me eat my own words. She is getting too smart!!!
While we were outside there was a wasp that was flying around my head and I freaked out and she looked at me and started laughing….then she said, “Holy Cow” in a very excited voice. I must say those words a lot! ;o)
We were doing school stuff today and she was counting the puffy pom-poms I got a few weeks ago. I took 12 out and put them in front of her. She touched each one counting all the way to 12! ;o) I was more excited about her one-to-one correspondence rather than the rote counting, but I have to give props to the Numbers Video (Meet the Numbers by the Preschool Prep Series)I bought her a few months ago……..it is the WORST video ever, but she loves it and it has really helped her learn her numbers……. whatever works, right??
Joey usually puts Presley down at night. It’s usually the only time they have together because he gets home around 7 every night. He has a whole routine that he does with her……..and this afternoon when I put her down for a nap she went through the whole process with me so that I would know!
