Another Mother's Day under my belt

Having experienced my second Mother's Day, I have to say I really enjoy the special day. And not because I get to be spoiled, get gifts, a whole made card, breakfast made for me by my awesome husband, my daughter saying "Happy Day, Mommy" and then dinner out later (although these make it pretty cool, too). It is a day full of joy, knowing I am the mother to a wonderful daughter. It's a day of remembering how blessed I am to have my family.

OK, here's some pictures from the last week or so:
Esther and Sydney lounging together. Don't they both look so comfortable.

Stealing my chair and apparently trying to finish my Sudoku.

Showing her little pink ducky a family picture.
We bought E a "chatter" phone. She loves walking around with it following her and watching it's eyes moving.

Do you think she'll ever use a real phone like this?

Funny face.
You can't tell from this still picture but Esther was drumming a beat on the empty litter container while moving her head from side-to-side. So hilarious!! She is such a ham. Look at that smile on her face.
E finally got a balloon...after always pointing them out wherever she sees them. She was so happy and would throw it around the car while shouting "wheeeeee."
Yesterday Gene and I decided that maybe Esther was ready for a toddler bed. We often see her trying to get her leg over the side of her crib (although she's still too short). She always throws all her stuff out of bed at night and then will cry because she doesn't have her blanket or toys anymore. Brilliant as we are, we decided last night, way too close to Esther's bedtime, to take apart her crib and set her mattress on the floor. She actually seemed to like it...until we left her alone, then she cried and cried and cried. So back we go to reinstall her crib...and hopefully soothe our scared/confused little girl. But by this time she was too exhausted and stimulated to settle down. Finally after much comforting and a little crying she finally went to sleep in her old crib. And in the morning, her blanket and all her toys were on the floor. For now, I guess that's how she likes it.
