Cheerios & Rice Crisco

Lydia no longer wants yogurt as a go to food. This morning she has her
own bowl with milk with Cheerios and Rice Krispies.

Lydia & The iPhone

Playing a game on mama's iPhone. Counting little eggs and moving
spiders. Concentrating. Crushing the opposition.

First Pumpkin

"Grandma," my mom, bought Lydia a pumpkin when she came to visit last week. We decided that rather than drawing something traditional and carving it for her, or even just taking over and drawing our own masterpiece, we would give her a Sharpie and let he draw on it herself. Now, granted, Dima drew the mouth and we did give her guidance on where to draw circles for the eyes. But other than that, this pumpkin is solely Lydia Violet's creation. We carved exactly what she drew. Pretty cool and not bad for 2.25 years old. Sort of Dali-esque, yes?

Two Band-Aids

Today Lydia accidentaly dropped the toilet seat on her fingers and got
two little cuts. But it was all better after we put two Dora the
Explorer Band-Aids on her fingers. She walked around all day with her
fingers outstretched, but never took off the bandages.

Big Girl Bed

Today at naptime we introduced Lydia to a new concept. A bed that "won't fence her in." We removed the crib railing and attached the toddler bed rail. She napped, more consumed by the realization that she didn't have to STAY in her bed, than actually sleeping. (When nap time was over I found her dozing by the door rather than on her mattress.) Well, I'm glad we did a test run. She's now fast asleep in her new Big Girl Bed. This is her just before we read our books and said night-night. So cute. SO proud.
