As I mentioned on my last post the girls GeeGee came over on the weekend and gave them each a little 'pet', Quinn a kitten a Aisley a puppy. They absolutely love these little animals and Quinn kept saying that they needed beds to sleep in, so being a rainy day we decided to tackle the job of making beds for their little pets. We started out with a plain shoe box then covered it with some wrapping paper that Quinn picked out (so of course it is a pinkish purple colour) Next I found some kitty cat stickers that we had and the girls put them all over their boxes. I took out all my material and had them each pick out their favourite. Quinn picked one that had Ballet slippers all over it and Aisley picked one that had stars. I then sewed them some pillows to put in the box and a blanket to go over the pets. Quinn thought the sewing machine was "beautiful" and "amazing" and was enthralled with what I was doing. The craft was fun to make for everyone and the girls loved the end result. Aisley loved her pillow and even used it for herself for a little while. Periodically throughout the day Quinn would go over to her kitty's bed and shush the kitty tuck her back in and sing her a little song. It was very sweet to watch them.

They decided that it was okay for some of their other pets to share the bed with their new ones. We figured out that the ones that they got from GeeGee are FurReal animals which are the same as the ones the Easter Bunny brought the girls this year. Quinn was very excited as hers are both totally white so they are Mommy and Baby. She said that even though Quinn look different they are Mommy and Baby also (never mind the fact that one is a cat and the other is a dog heehee).
While Aisley was napping today I decided it was a good chance to let Quinn try a game on the computer. Craig and I had been talking about this recently and thought it would be a good idea as we know that when she starts school she will have some exposure to them and I am sure most kids will be quiet good at using them. It took her about 30 seconds to figure out the mouse and after that she was in control and loving it! I went on the CBC kids website and had her play some games on there. We found one that was all about puzzles and from the show Animal Mechanical and she was really good at it so naturally it was her favourite. I was so proud of her, she amazes me everyday, I just can't believe how big she is getting!
