Way to go Big Girl!

**For those of you who have a child that spends a lot of time in therapy you will understand this post and why I let my child crawl on the coffee table!!!!

AnnaKate has an adorable little chair from Pottery Barn (thanks Aunt B) that she sits in while she watches Maisy. It is pushed up against the coffee table so it doesn't flip over when she slides out of it. She recently discovered that she could climb up in the chair and reach the coffee table...the remote is usually there so that is her incentive! (Remote=Maisy) I have notice that she has been trying to "hike" her leg up over the chair and actually crawl up on the coffee table. Most moms would discourage their child from crawling on the coffee table but I actually promoted it (I can hear my mom telling me that I will be sorry for this!!). This is huge for AnnaKate! Crawling on the coffee table is a big thing...as much as I don't want her to do it...I want her to do it!!! I captured her accomplishing this today!!
I hope my next post is not about getting stitches because AnnaKate was playing on the coffee table!?!?

AnnaKate's school had a yard sale today and I helped set up. Of course, I also did some shopping. I found this Discovery Toy that that I thought AnnaKate would really like. She is really into putting things in and pouring them out. We had loads of fun this evening with my yard sale find.

Awesome climbing skills AnnaKate!! Good job Big Girl!! The new toy looks like fun too. Will loves to put things in and then dump them out. Will and AnnaKate could spend many hours playing together, I am sure!

I think it's great to let our kids explore! Good exercise! I let Austin learn to pull up on the tv stand. He would stand directly in front of the tv but he was standing! Once he got really good at it, I discouraged it but hey whatever works right?

Yeah AnnaKate! What great problem solving skills. You are such a good mom. You are really great at seeing the big picture.

What great "play by play" footage you captured! Way to go AnnaKate!!I think that it is adorable that when she has her mind set on something, she will do anything to accomplish it. Maisy is her personal mission statement.

Oh, how I understand! I can't wait until Miss Addison can do that. :-) I would have never WANTED Weston to do something like that, but will probably WELCOME Addison doing it, just like you did AnnaKate.

you can tell she (kindly) gave me a quick glance before putting the book on top of her head.

You go, AnnaKate! You let that sweet baby crawl on anything she wants to. :)

I heard you saw my hubby tonight. He didn't make me look bad, did he? :)

Hope school is going well for you!
