Open Wide

Lindsay was in time out when I got to school.  She was not listening to her teacher who told her 3 times not to put mulch in the water fountain.  At home she played for a little bit.  Then she had to go to time out because she would not help clean up her mess.  She ate good and was good for bath and getting ready for bed.

Busch Gardens

We had a good day today.  We took Lindsay to Busch Gardens.  We looked at all the animals first and she particularly liked the orangutans.  She was well behaved the whole time.  After lunch she played in the water area for awhile and then we went up in the net walkways in the kids area.  We rode the train before coming home.  This evening she read a bunch with mom.  After dinner and bath she was off to bed.

Uncooperative Pirate

Lindsay slept in until almost 8 today.  She played with grandma and grandpa and mommy and went out to lunch.  She played outside some and read many stories.  She did however miss her nap which caught up with us this evening.

Tongue Time

This evening Lindsay was back into her mood from last week.  A lot of whining... Hopefully she can catch up on some sleep this weekend.

Lindsay slept in a little and tehn was off to school.  This afternoon we all went to the park for awhile.  Lindsay went on the slides several times.  She swang for awhile and then built sand castles and birthday cakes in the sand.
Jordan seems to have flipped and is now in a better position.

Today Lindsay did tumble bus.  She was pretty well behaved for daddy tonight.  We went out to a barbecue restaurant and Lindsay ate pretty good.  After bath we read some stories and Lindsay stayed up until mommy got home.

Lip Licking

Lindsay did some good work on the potty today.  Tonight she tried every trick she had to stall bed time including offering more kisses after mommy and daddy were ready to leave her room.

Lindsay slept on the bed at the hotel last night without rails and did not fall off.  After breakfast at the hotel (Lindsay had a waffle) we went to a park for a quick walk and saw some birds and alligators.  We met Aunt Lisa and Uncle Robby for lunch and had a nice visit.  Lindsay slept a good part of the way home.  This afternoon she has been reading a lot of books with mommy.  She helped make her own pizza tonight.  Note all the olives.  She also ate about a third of the can of olives as a pre dinner snack.

Lindsay slept in a bit today.  After breakfast we left for a wedding.  Lindsay was good on the drive and only fell asleep minutes before we got there.  She did pretty good through the ceremony.  At the reception she got her own fruit cup and a plate of chicken fingers and fries which was nice of them to do for the kids.  Lindsay really enjoyed dancing at the reception and danced like crazy with mommy and grandma.  She was a little to shy to dance with cousin Austin, but he kept trying to get her to dance with him.  She wasn't happy about leaving, but hopefully she'll sleep well tonight.

Little Buckaroo

Lindsay woke up in a better mood today.  Today at school they had a pirate parade with floats because of Gasparilla.  This evening we went for a wagon ride.  Lindsay and daddy went to Five Guys which Lindsay says is her favorite restaurant.  She said it was better than pizza, but not better than cookies.  She was a very good girl for daddy tonight.

Lindsay slept in a bit and was good this morning.  This afternoon the whining returned.  Dinner was difficult and Lindsay barely ate.  We skipped bath and got her to bed a little early.

Picnic Island

Lindsay was not happy again on Monday morning.  This afternoon we went to Picnic Island and had a good time.  Lindsay played on the playgrounds and the beach and the lifeguard stand.  She made us "birthday cakes" out of sand and sang Happy Birthday although mostly to mommy.  She went to bed a bit earlier tonight to catch up on some sleep.

Reading with grandma

Lindsay did not sleep well last night, but fortunately she slept in until about 9:30 today.  We played and read inside this morning until grandma and grandpa Mattern came over.  They took us out to lunch and played with Lindsay for awhile.  After they left Lindsay took a 2 hour nap which was nice.  Tonight grandma and grandpa Paulson are watching her while mommy and daddy go out to dinner.

Nurse Lindsay

Lindsay slept in until about 8:15 today.  This morning had a big breakfast and then helped daddy with a bunch of errands.  This afternoon Lindsay enjoyed some ice cream.  She read a lot of books with mommy.  She definitely does not have her normal energy level but she made it through the day without a nap.

Gator Baby # 2

Lindsay is still congested and seemed pretty tired tonight.  She also did not eat a whole lot.  Hopefully she can catch up on a little sleep this weekend.

Who's photographing who?

Lindsay is rather stuffed up and snotty today.  This morning at school she got two baby dolls and tried to give one to Anna.  Anna wasn't interested.  Lindsay has been giving daddy kisses goodbye when he drops her off and has been better about giving kisses in general.

Soft as ...

Today Lindsay did tumble bus.  She also tells us she is "flag helper", whatever that means.

Smiley Face

Welcome to the new site for the Paulson Girls.  As you can probably determine we have finally decided on the name Jordan for baby number two.  I will be posting all pictures and blogs at this site.  I am not going to continue to do the "Lindsay went to school, played, ate dinner, took a bath, and went to bed" routine any more.  I will keep the journal simple and only include new or hopefully interesting items.
