Random Happenings

Nothing much exciting happening here, lately, except for Ryleigh's unceasing attempts at conversation. She's been putting words together for some time, but the other day she put a whole sentence together. I was kind of surprised & amused to hear her very emphatic "I want candy!". (And just to set the record straight, I rarely give her candy - so that's partially why I was surprised to hear her say that!)

This morning, I was sensing that Ryleigh was needing to take a nap soon, so I mentioned it to her. She immediately covered her ears with her hands, shook her head back & forth & emphatically said "No, No, No!" As you might have guessed, Ryleigh hates naps with a passion, so at times naptime can turn into a battle of wills. Therefore, I wasn't overly surprised to hear her hollering & playing in her crib when she was supposed to be sleeping. I walked into her room, fully expecting her to be standing up up (maybe even jumping up & down) in her crib. Since she was still laying exactly where I had put her (& trying to act angelic), instead of spanking her, I gave her a stern warning that she had better settle down & go to sleep. As I headed out the door, I heard her say (in a very sweet, happy little voice) "Bye!". Needless to say, I quickly closed the door so she wouldn't see the smile on my face!
