It seems like I always blog when I am dealing with some kind of frustration with Leah.
I wanted to share some REALLY good stuff from the past few days.
We went to a local amusement park on Monday. It's called Darien Lake and it's kinda like Six Flags. It actually used to be a Six Flags at one point, but it's privately owned now.
Anyway, there are TONS of rides! They have a HUGE water park! They have things for everyone to enjoy. It's pretty big.
Leah walked through that entire park, for about 6 hours, with very little rest.
She rode crazy rides with her daddy and she LOVED them.
She rode in the lazy river FIVE times with me.
She waited in line patiently.
She was almost perfect.
She obviously had a blast!
We have season passes and I can't wait to go again!
Yesterday, we just spent the day at home.
Leah took a cat nap while cutting the grass with daddy.
She helped daddy feed the chickens.
She helped me hang laundry.
She didn't whine, cry, or make much of a fuss the entire day.
She didn't run to areas of the property which are off limits.
She communicated as best as she could.
We had a great day!
Today, Leah had an elephant sized portion of breakfast and ate it pretty neatly. She didn't need many reminders to wipe her face.
She took a shower and DIDN'T FUSS WHEN I WASHED HER HAIR!!!
This is HUGE!
Then, she dressed herself as best as she could, and DIDN'T FUSS WHEN I DID HER HAIR!!!
This is also very HUGE!
She had a good day at school, came home, made a pb& banana sandwich (but wouldn't eat it), watched a few tv shows, and then took a little nap on the floor until her siblings came home.
She actually kinda passed out.
When she woke up, Sarah spent some great sissy time with her playing outside, coloring, playing Duck, Duck, Goose, and reading.
She had dinner and fell asleep a little later than her normal bedtime.
She didn't back talk, whine, cry, fuss, or misbehave at all today.
It was another GREAT day!
I think Leah needed some "big girl" time.
She needed to be given a little independence and trust.
Since Darien Lake on Monday, my little girl has grown up.
I think she is going to be going through a growth spurt pretty soon with all of her eating and sleeping lately.
I think she must be going through a behavior growth spurt as well.
And it is so nice to witness!
