No more monkeys jumping on the bed!

Yesterday was Labor Day so we decided to go to the Natural Science Center. Hailey had went once already several months ago with her Mimi and Grandpadude but had never been with us. She loved it. The coolest part to her I think was the animals. She loved the monkeys and every time we said something about a monkey she would sing the song from one of her books "No more monkeys jumping on the bed." That is the only part that she knows. She also loves snakes and was actually able to touch an albino rat snake. She thought that was pretty cool. They also had a really cool play area for preschool aged children where you could pretend plant a garden and grocery shop and play in the kitchen. The groceries were real boxes from the grocery store that had been emptied and stuffed and taped back. She kept bringing them over to me and saying "please" because she wanted whatever was in it. You would seriously think that we never feed her! All in all it was great day. She was a very goo girl minus the tantrum at the otter exhibit. Here are a few pics to enjoy!

The PeePee Patrol

I just wanted to share a cute story that happened a few minutes ago. I was sitting at the computer on facebook and Randy was upstairs. I had been sitting there a few minutes and realized Hailey was being really quiet and then i heard a scrubbing noise.
I guess I need to preface this by saying that Hailey has been saying "potty" to me the last few days so when she says that I take her to the potty and let her sit on it for a little while. I haven't gotten her a potty for her yet so I don't really expect her to do anything on the big potty. All that to say, she was running around without her diaper on because i take it off for her to sit on the potty.
Back to the story...So I'm sitting there and I hear the scrubbing noise. I turn around, and apparently Hailey has had a little accident on the floor so she had gone over to the cabinet and gotten a sponge out and was sitting there in the floor trying to clean her peepee up. She also is afraid of walking on the floor when it is wet. She had quite a bad spill one day when the floor was wet. So I try to get her up so I can finish cleaning it and she starts wailing because she is so scared. So i got a paper towel and cleaned it up and had to literally stand her in the dry spot where the peepee was to convince her it was okay to walk.
She got over it in a few minutes and was standing at the bottom of the stairs yelling "RANDY!
