The "Puter"

Sassy has a new obsession. It's her "puter". She loves her puter. If you were to see her play with it the last few days, you would never guess that she has actually owned the thing for about two years now. It sat collecting dust in the basement for quite some time. It's awesome when the re-discover toys!!

Sassy tells me, matter-of-factly, that she has to "do her puter", like it's some kind of official business. If only I had such important matters to attend to all day. Maybe it's a sign of the times, or maybe mommy spends *a little* too much time on her puter. Ah, well...

In other news, it's Friday (in case you didn't already know). Ty has a half day today, and I will be hitting the gym at some point this afternoon. No super exciting plans this weekend- we plan to do some cleaning and laundry... the usual. I do need to start tagging some clothes for a consignment sale I will be participating in. Sunday, we plan to watch the Super Bowl over at Tom and Lynzee's. And cheat on our diet. There, I said it...

I feel like I never talk about Little A here. She is doing great. She is sitting in her BebePod often, and we are working on her balance for actual sitting. She hasn't rolled from her back to her front yet, but she is very close. She is a big time smiler, just like Sassy was. Oh, and her bottom right tooth feels like it is seriously about to cut. She is drooling like it's her job and her poor little gums are so swollen. This is quite a shock to me because Sassy did not cut her first tooth until the week of her first birthday!

Oh, and while I'm on a roll bragging on my kids, Sassy did something pretty awesome last night. She has this Little People A-Z Learning Zoo that Kelli bought her for Christmas a year ago. She has always loved the animals, but never really had much interest in the board.

Each animal has a letter on its chest correlating to its name, and the board has a path with letters and spaces for each animal. So, we were in the basement and Sassy was lining up all the animals. Neither Tyler or I thought much of this- she lines things up all the time. After a while, we took a closer look, and each animal was in its correct spot! She matched the letters! From alligator...bear...camel...dolphin to walrus...x-ray fish...yak...zebra- all of them spot on. I thought that was pretty awesome. Yeah, Sassy!

HA! It's time for me to stop "doing my puter" and get my butt in the shower already!! It's 2:13 for goodness' sake! But I can relate to Sassy's need to be with her puter. I share a deep love with mine as well =)
