What this little girl did today~

Oh yes, she's adorable!
Here's a snippet of what she did today:

I put her down for her nap at around 11:30. She's got a tiny cold, so she was cranky all morning. "Mommy, hold you!" was about all I heard.
At 12:15, I suddenly heard on the monitor, "Get it off! get it off!" with a lot of crying. Mildly concerned, I went upstairs to find her frantically waving her poop-covered hand out of the crib bars. After taking off her poop-covered dress and cleaning the poop off of various parts of her body where it didn't belong, I released her naked little self into the wild and began to strip her bed. In a minute, I heard a tiny voice say, "peeing!".
After wiping the pee puddle off of the wood floor, I blotted up the fresh pee puddle from the carpet that she had made while I was cleaning up the first one.
After hauling poopy laundry downstairs and bathing Ava and getting her dressed, it was 1:00 before she was in bed again.

While she slept, I geared up for the afternoon.

As I was stirring the skillet on the stove, Ava was dragging the stool across the kitchen and finding my giant chef's knife on the counter. As soon as she caught my eye, she dropped the knife and took a big bite of the freshly chopped onion beside it! As if to say, "What? I just wanted a snack!"
When I turned around from putting the stool away, she had ripped the lid off my baking powder and was stirring it vigorously with a medicine dosing spoon.
When I looked up from putting the baking powder back in the cabinet and rinsing off the spoon, she was attempting to fill a cup from the water in the door of the refrigerator. This time without the stool, and water was streaming down her arm and onto the floor.
After wiping that up, I turned to find her once again with the baking powder. This time she had somehow gotten the spatula off of the stove top that I had been using to stir the tomato sauce with and was attempting to stuff it down inside the can.

Um, I think the last half of this took place within 10 minutes or so...talk about my head spinning! I really wanted to go up and get out the pack-n-play. She'd scream, but at least I wouldn't feel like I was trying to cook with a spider monkey in my kitchen.

My darling little angel is in bed for the night now...but I can hear her on the monitor throwing her paci's out onto the floor

Oh, and her ENTIRE outfit (except her diaper) is from the Goodwill store!

We've had the same whirlwind from Ella.

Who said girls aren't as active as boys?!

Oh my she sounds like my oldest Cole. Some days I feel like all I do is go behind him and try to repair/clean up the path he leaves behind. He is four so I can't say how many days I have had like that one! She is adorable though. He is too and sometimes I say it's a good thing!!
