The Adventures of Saylee

Im making up for lost time with this new camera...taking pictures of everything for no reason at all...

So Im here to introduce, a day in the life of Saylee...



After waking up, she watches cartoons and runs around the house with her breakfast (eating at a table...whats that about??) Here she's pickin' the glaze off her gfcf donut in the boys room...









Next I get her ready for school and put on the spiffy new jumper I made her. She loves to play with fabric scraps from my sewing room (the floor is covered with them!)











Now we head outside to wait for the bus...








While waiting, she walks along the edge of the sidewalk. Her lastest obsession is Aristocats and she's making choo-choo sounds as if walking along a railroad track. Here she comes...








And there she goes...






After arriving home from school, she ignores her lunch and looks for a mess to make!!








gotta love that visual stimulation- she loves to throw things up in the air... This little girl is a ninja. She can get into or get a hold of anything and turn it into hours of fun. Today's choice...a pad of paper. Leave out a paper towel, and she'll crumble it into a snowy christmas miracle...all over the house!





How can I deny her what brings such joy??





At some point during the day, she barges into the office and jams on the keyboard. Again, obsessed with the Aristocats, she knows word for word the scene where the kittens practice their music on the piano. Im hoping within a year we can get her some lessons, she genuinley REALLY enjoys playing the piano...it could be her special talent!



After pretending to take a nap, she looks for a something else to get into. Again...a ninja. I was in the kitchen and I did not hear her pull up this chair and grab my QT cup.









She dips and sips...she doesnt get very much so after a few dips, she pours all it all over herself!







Here's a rare moment where she actually shows off and says what I ask her to!

It was grandmas's birthday so we hung out with family and Saylee wanted to ride her pony. Her pony, wanted to watch WALLE instead...



Brodes is such a good brother...I love this picture








later we got home, put on our p.j.'s and rode around the range a few times!!






She loves to play with her brothers!!!







Well here you go....we have our good days and our bad days. Our good days involve no fits, social interaction and ample amounts of concentration/attention. Our bad days involve no eating, stimming all day long and flicking a full pumpkin pie off her hands all through the house...(yes, that actually happened!) We are so pleased with her ability to continually improve and we couldn't do it without the love of our boys who help her along the way. We truly are blessed!!
