Oh those terrible two's


Sienna has been an easy baby. She is almost always happy. She loves to eat. She goes to bed at 9 pm and wakes up at 9 am and has a 3 hour nap everyday. She's heaven! A little angel.

But this week she has been a grump. She has decided it is impossible to share, she has decided to provoke Simon into hitting her as often as she can (she realizes he gets in trouble and she doesn't). Stinker. And she has started pushing our buttons as much as she can.

For instance, she has found a tiny hole in our old couches, and has been pulling the stuffing out of it as much as she can. I have told her time and time again to stop, and tonight she did it again. So to time-out she went. And she cried. And Trav's heart broke. And my heart broke, though I had to take a picture because she looked so cute stuck in the corner with her little butterfly wings on.

I present to you, our little fairy, in trouble.

As soon as I told her she could leave the corner she ran over to me and hugged me and said "I'm sorry mamma." And hasn't touched the stuffing since. I love my little Ennabug.

Cute Picture! Polly has had to have a few time outs lately. (Can't stop pushing.) For some reason it is harder and breaks my heart more than it ever did with Macy. Actually Macy never got into trouble, EVER. We're dealing with terrible Fours. More about that later...

Also, I think Polly and Sienna are hair twins. (different color, though.)

I'm glad to see that other people's children don't always obey either. Where did you get those wings? They're darling! I was so GLAD to hear of Travis's news! I pray that things stay in your favor!

Although sad... that is the funniest picture. Especially with her angel wings on. How could an angel be naughty. What a sweetie!

Congrats on Travis' news. Hopefully things just keep progessing that way. As for the naughty girl, that picture is really cute. How do you stad mad at that? Anytime you need a vacation, just come on down. You'd be more than welcome.

I love the pic. with the wings on, it is almost like she is trying to hide! I didnt really believe in the terrible twos at my house, they hit me at three. At least time out works for her, Dax will just say, "you will come get me right?" and will be doing the same thing later, and back to time out he goes, and Corban feels left out when Dax goes and so he will go and put himself in timeout and wait patiently, that is unless it really is his turn to go. She is so cute. Im glad everyone has the same problems at home that we do!

I'm glad that you peek in on us, because I peek in on you and your darling family pretty often. It's wonderful to hear positive results for Travis, I'll keep praying for more shrinkage:)

Hunter does the exact same thing with any pillow that has any small hole just big enough for his finger. Unfortanetly he is too young to put in time-out right now so instead we just hit him with the pillow and he thinks it's a game and just laughs at us.

Sienna is a doll. I love the picture on time out. When is her birthday? That is great she has a 3hr nap. I really hope that at 2 Dallin is better because right now he is terrible. He better get better soon or no more Payne kids will be born.

Courtney said...

She is so cute! I am glad Peyton is not the only one that goes to time out! It's crazy how kids just go through their stages! At least she was sorry! How cute!

Melissa said...

I like hearing that other kids don't like to obey, then I know it is not just mine. That is such a cute picture. It is so hard to stay mad when they are just so cute.

Jamie said...

Oh my that is the cutest ever picture of Sienna in trouble! I love it! I'm really happy for the shrinkage! That's great!! I hope I'll see ya next week!

Amy Johnson said...

She is a cute little stinker. We did get lucky with our second babies. I won't know what to do when Payzli really is naughty. I've been lucky with her this far!

Katie said...

Love it. That is hilarious. The fairy wings top it all off! She is darling.
