Day 294

Today Adeline and I went to the store to chose our pumpkins! one for Mama, one for Dada and one for Adeline. Adeline chose a small round one and we chose a tall one for Dada (those are the ones he likes) and Mama chose a HUGE one for a special project she has in mind ;)

Day 293

Adeline loves books and reading.  She is the biggest reader I know.  Even more than Mommy and Daddy! She still ventures off at all times during the day to go in her room and "read!" Well, I filled a bucked with Halloween books and trick-or-treating buckets and stuffies from my teaching days; she LOVES it.  It is just in the living room and easiyl accessible any time and does she ever take advantage if its accessibility; she looks through the books ALL the time.

Day 292

Tea and a Hat
Adeline has been asking to wear a hat on almost a daily basis.  She signs hat over and over and over until we give her one to wear and then she just happily wears it around the house.  It is so precious and strange considering I couldn't keep a hat on her head the first year of her life.  All that matters is that she's wearing it now...because the long, cold winter is on its way!

Day 291

 Sad Bebe
Today was Adeline's most snuggly day EVER!!! She just wanted to lay in my lap this morning and she even let me wrap my robe around the both of us.  

I swear it wasn't me...I did not put the bucket on Adeline's head like a hat!!! She did it all herself and then waltzed over to show me.  She must have really wanted to wear it, because it kept falling off and she kept putting it right back on again!

Day 289

We had a fall family photo shoot went very smoothly! At the end I put Adeline in her Halloween Costume and got the photographer to take some photos so I don't have to worry too much on Halloween about taking some shots.  After the shoot we went to McD's and Adeline quite enjoyed eating fries in her costume!

Day 288

 Adeline LOVES these Pajamas.  She goes into her room and get them several times a day...then she wraps them around her neck and walks around the house with them.  At various times she sits down and plays peek-a-boo (with herself) with the PJs.  I am just not sure what it is about these particular  pajamas that she likes so much, but these are the ONLY PJs she does this with.  Daddy and I always laugh her when she does it...let's hope we haven't damaged her by always making fun of her quirks.

Day 287

Pushing Buttons
Today Adeline and Daddy were playing with the learning Turtle...its a Turtle that helps teach numbers 1-10 and the alphabet.  There are several different settings on it and one of them asks you to find different letters of the alphabet. It says, "Find the letter I" and when it says that the button above the letter I is blinks.  Adeline was totally waiting for a question and then pushing the right button!!! I totally get that Adeline was was just watching for the letter that was blinking and pushing the button, but she was still watching for the blinking button, waiting for it to stop blinking and then she would push it...It was great! She was really into it.

Day 286

Adeline got her first professional hair cut today...and she is very happy with it. Now she can eat without having to brush the hair of her eyes and therefore she will not be getting food in her hair anymore....YAY!!!

 Snow Pants
We are getting ready for a long, cold winter.  We are super excited that she is walking and may even be running in the snow this winter!!!

Daddy Time
Adeline loves reading!!! and especially with Daddy.

Potty Training
To help keep warm Adeline has been wearing a lot of Baby Legs during potty training.  She is happy to let me know when she is all done on the potty now...whether she has gone potty or not.

Day 284

Our Little Veterinarian 
As you know Adeline LOVES Chloe!!! But today that love moved to another level.  Whenever the opportunity presented itself Adeline intently inspected Chloe; especially her eyes.  She was so gentle and slow while inspecting her Puppy it was just tooo sweet.  You could see that she just adores her Puppy.

Day 283

 I am thankful...
We had a thanksgiving dinner this evening with Nana, Papa, Auntie Thea, Uncle Nathaniel and Auntie Alisha.  It was so much fun!!! We had a great turkey casserole and then went outside, across the street to hang out and toss the football around.  Adeline had a great time watching Daddy throwing the football around with Papa and Uncle Nathaniel.  As you can see she wanted to join in the fun at times...but mostly she was content to sit (or stand) and watch the football spin through the air from person to person.

Day 282

As I was getting Adeline dressed this morning to go to the basement all she wanted was a hat.  I kept telling her that we were only going downstairs, but she kept insisting she wanted to wear a hat.  So put a hat on her and she was quite content after that.  How cute is she?

Adeline's new favourite snack is Blueberries!  She eats them by the bowlful.  After nap 2 today I gave her some in a little Adeline bowl and she enjoyed her snack out in the yard on one of the most beautiful fall days this year.

Day 281

The Farm
We went to the Prairie Gardens Adventure Farm again today!  It was awesome! They had their pumpkin festival going on this weekend and there were pumpkins everywhere.

Here are some highlights of the day:
  • Adeline kissing (licking) the bunny
  • Adeline walking over to the goat to pet its tail
  • Picking some great pumpkins and gourdes 
  • Adeline's giggles of joy when the goats tried to lick her hands
  • Adeline signing bath as she watched the ducks swim in the pond
  • When the pumpkin cannon scared the poop right out of Mommy & Daddy, but it didn't phase Adeline at all
We will definitely be making some trips to the Praire Gardens Adventure Farm again in the future.

Day 280

Old Is New Again
Adeline quite enjoyed jumping in her jump jump and swinging in her swing today.  I think she enjoyed her swing more today than any other day every before.  All week she has been going up to the swing and putting various "babies" in it and then she would try and get herself into it with her baby.  So today I broke down and put her in and she enjoyed just swinging with her you can see she pretty much adores her leopard baby.

Day 279

Potty Day 3
Today was Adeline's third day on the potty and she peed again! YAY!  I didn't even notice when it was happening (what a bad mom, and teacher too...I didn't even get to immediately positively reinforce the behaviour).  She peed (at some point while sitting on the potty) and then it seemed like she was ready to get off so I took her off and voila there it was!

Day 278

Potty Training Day 2
SHE PEED!!! ON THE POTTY!!!! It was amazing.  So today she sat on the potty a few times, but this time I took her pants and diaper off.  And this afternoon she actually peed.  I was so excited for her!!! I think I scared her, because she started to cry.  Maybe I'll curb the enthusiasm a bit next time ;)

Update on Adeline's walking...
She is doing amazingly! Today she walked all the way from the couch to the kitchen sink (about 20 feet). Adeline is so impressed with her own she kept crawling to the couch, standing up, she would then walk a bit and when she would lose balance she would laugh and crawl back to the couch to do it all over again! She was just so happy all day.  I think she LOVES being able to walk.

Day 277

Potty Training
I am doing some early potty training with Adeline and it is going very well! In the bathroom I set up a little potty station with her potty and a basket with some of Adeline's favourite books.  Today I put her on the potty several times, but I kept all her clothes on.  She had a great time just sitting on her potty reading some books.

Day 275

So toady we were just hanging out in the basement and all of a sudden she stepped away from the chair and walked toward Mommy and Daddy.  It was so awesome! It was only 3 steps, but Adeline is well on her way to being a walker!!!! And before Halloween...just what I wanted!!!!

Day 274

Happy Baby
Teething must be on hold for now, because I seem to have my happy baby back.  YAY!!! She has really been enjoying going down to the basement lately.  I take the cushions off one of the chairs and put it on the floor in front of the chair (as a little step for her).  She gets up on to the chair and just jumps to her little hearts content.  As you can see she was having a great time ;)
