Doctor/Play Day/Party Time

Landree had her 2 year check up on Thursday. She was in the 75th Percentile for height and weight- so she is no longer underweight and her head is in the 90th percentile- she's her Daddy's girl. She is right on target for everything and after watching her scoot a chair over to use as a climbing post to get on the examining table and then slide back down head first her doctor told me that she thought that the broken thumb was only the first of many broken bones. She also believed that she was ready to start potty training. So while at Target we got a new potty chair to go downstairs. That night after Brian put it together, she TT'd immediately and I don't know who was excited more- Landree, Us, or Peyton.
All the girls were out of school on Friday so I invited them over here and got a preview of the summer. The girls played the Wii, house, played outside, watched a movie, did paint by numbers, snacked, and argued. Landree is definitely growing up and I got tickled when I heard her hollering from the playroom- "My Turn, My Turn." Kacy decided to take over potty-training duties for the day and as long as she asked- Landree went but she doesn't know she needs to go beforehand. Peyton's 2-year old teacher trained her with M-Ms- one if they sat on the potty, 2 if they TTed, 3 if the pooped. Well, no mms here so Kacy and I came up with a new system. An Elmo sticker if she goes #1 and the great Abby Cadabby sticker for #2. She is thrilled and is now asking for her stickers after she goes. Well now that you are all grossed out- I know- I am thinking that Master's Degree and student loans are coming in handy around here.

The Willards were sweet and offered to take us out to Chili's for supper and the McDonalds joined us. Everybody knows I have some brown spots on my forehead from hormones after I had Landree. Well that is everyone but Abby. I was putting on makeup to get ready and she came to investigate. All of a sudden in a concerned voice Abby said, Mrs. Erica- you have left that on your head toooo long. The person that put that on you did not know what they were doing." I'm not sure what she thought it was but obviously she thought someone had messed me up. Brian told her that I got lippy and he punched me in the head. Brian then told her he was joking and Abs told him that maybe it was a thief that did it. On the way there, we were deciding what we were going to have based on our Weight Watchers points. Brian said he was so hungry he could eat a horse. Kacy piped in with, "So, how many points would that be?"

I stayed up really late last night or this morning for the third night in a row. At midnight, I decided I have become my mom. Not an opinion or judgement- just a statement of fact. I finished Landree's cake before lunch yesterday but decided at 11 last night that I didn't like it and took it down to it's base frosting and started fresh and then stayed up even later than I had planned. I can't tell you how many times I went to bed with my mom sewing and then waking up the next morning finding her groggy- drinking coffee with a completely different outfit than what she started with. Pretty much the same thing I do- except I don't sew.
This morning I was exhausted and the girls piled in our bed to watch TV while I tried to get some more sleep and Brian was running on the treadmill- those of you that haven't seen him in awhile wouldn't even recognize him. I gave up on the extra sleep after Landree sat on my head for the second time. I started cleaning up the kitchen and Brian went to get his Valentine's present- a One hour massage. He was nervous because he has never liked getting massages in the past. I tried to dip Oreos on a sucker stick in Landee safe chocolate to make favors for the party but it didn't work so I just crushed oreos and mixed them with the chocolate and spread them out on parchment paper. I got the girls ready and Brian picked us up to run some errands. He loved his massage and thinks we both need to be getting one at least every two weeks. I guess he had some nasty knots in his calves and neck. We got home and got the girls fed and in bed for nap. I decided to put a rhinestone two on a plain shirt of Landree's. We did a clean on the the downstairs and everyone got ready for the party. My camera died on Friday so Haley brought her camera and took pictures for us. I told her I am hiring her from now on. I was planning on making Chicken and Dumplings and Barbeque Sandwiches. Well then on Friday, Kacy asked me if she could come over next time we had Mayan Chicken Burgers. So I decided to make those instead since they are easier and Landree loves them with their guacamole. We also had fruit, salsa and chips, veggies and Landree safe ranch dressing. Landree walked through and shoved broccoli in her mouth and took a piece of cauliflower for the road. Brian said that she was not his child. Peyton came though a few minutes later asking for some of the Oreo chocolate- Brian said that she was his child.
We had a great time and Landree enjoyed her presents. Haley will be burning a CD with the pictures on it for me so I'll post those when I can.
This is the cake I made for Landree to eat:
Since Abby Cadabby is new to Sesame Street- no one has any cake decorations for her. So I melted Wilton Candy Wafers to make her Abby Cadabby Cake. I gave up trying to get the buttercream smooth on both cakes at about 12:30 this morning. I did use fondant for decorations but I hate the taste of it so I refused to cover a whole cake in it.
Here is the cake for the rest of us:
Here is my baby two years ago today in a hotel waiting for sister to get over the flu.
Brian calls that his bulldog baby
And here is My Beautiful Two Year Old Toggaler (Peyton's Word for Toddler) Today
Isn't that one of the most beautiful pictures you have seen. Thanks Haley. This angel went to sleep tonight with a soft-bodied Princess doll on her chest, Elmo tucked under one arm and Abby Cadabby tucked under the other. Isn't life wonderful.
