What have I done with the day?

Sometimes I get to the end of the day and can't figure out what on earth I have done with the last 12 hours--why does my house still look messy and I still have a to do list a mile long? Here is just one reason I can't seem to get much done.
 

This little person has become very mobile.  In this case, someone left the pantry open while preparing lunch, and she decided to go exploring there.  Everything goes straight to her mouth.  She especially likes to crumble, tear, and eat paper.  This afternoon she found some cheese and ham crackers that Anya left on her little chair, and Paisley gagged on them, and threw up all over Ryan's office floor. She pulls up to things, so it's not just ground level that we have to keep an eye on. I'll have to teach the other girls to help me out with Paisley patrol.  She may just be our early walker at the rate she's going.

bwyatt is walking now, and loves it. he too loves to put anything and everything in his mouth. you name it, he has eaten it. poop, bugs, dirt, paper, sponges, leaves, wood chips, etc. i really do watch him pretty carefully. thank goodness i get most things out of his mouth fairly quick.

I know the feeling. Seth's favorite places to play are the toilet, the garbage can, and the kitchen cabinet with all the crayons in it (in that order). I am constantly checking that the bathroom door is shut, the garbage is out of reach, and the cabinet is locked.

She is so darling. I can't believe she gets around so well. Ashlynn crawls a little but mostly rolls where she wants to go. She also loves to eat and play with paper. These little ones definatly take some time.
Tell Anya Happy birthday. She like all your girls is so cute. The book about being a witch I need to buy. It sounds like a book I could really learn something from, especially at bedtime!
