Wow. The day has come where the girls understand how to play Wii! Giovanna now asks to play her video games. Kids are so smart these days! I'm a bit partial, but think it's too cute watching them shake their tushies! They're playing Just Dance Kids in the video.

We are soooooooooooooo excited about our new pool. It's just a kiddie pool, but it is AWESOME for our girls. This weekiend, the girls and I went to Wisconsin to visit some friends we haven't seen in a long time. They had this pool and the girls had so much fun jumping into and swimming in the pool. I knew we had to get one. Only problem, there are no pools like this ANYWHERE! Luckily, Joe recognized this pool at our babysitter's house, so he asked her where she bought it. She told him, but knew there aren't any left. She just so happened to have an extra one still in the box in her garage and Joe told her, SOLD!
In the video, Giuliana does not fall in the beginning. She was going to "swim" but mid-motion decided not to because the water was too cold to put her shoulders under. (I know because it was chilly last night, and she did this a few times before I grabbed the camera)! Also, Giovanna is yelling "CANNONBALL!" when she is doing her version of a cannonball.

was lightening that night, so we couldn't go in the water. So,
one evening I set up our bitty pool in the back yard and the
girls "floated" in the grass!

This is the first night Giuliana gave us a hard time
going to bed. She kept coming in our room, on Joe's
side of the bed saying, "Da da." We would take turns
putting her back to bed. This is the last time. We heard
her come in our room, we heard a thunk, then silence.
Both of us peeked over the edge of the bed to see this!
We knew we had to capture a picture. It was so funny!
The girls and I waited "upstairs" while Joe and Gunnar went
"downstairs" to get info about tickets for a boat ride.

For a few months now, Giuliana has been crawling into Giovanna's toddler bed and basically claiming it as her own. The other day I found her with her chubby little leg over the rail of the crib, she was trying to climb out! That's when I said, "it's time" to which Joe responded, "oh she's been doing that for weeks!" WHAT?!?! I wish I knew that!
So we spent a family day and went shopping to get the girls all the necessary bedding for the big transition night. Giovanna moved to the bottom bunk of the bunk beds, and Giuliana moved into the toddler bed. Night 1 went VERY well. Giuliana only came out of bed one time and slept til 8:15 am. I knew Giovanna would be fine because she naps in our bed all the time. Joe's test was nap time today, and it was a success! He said he put Giuliana in her bed for a nap and she fell right asleep. He even had to wake her up 2 hours later! Let's hope this luck continues!
