Can't find Sienna? Check the office!

The kids are still sick, so yesterday I decided to take a day off from all of our activities and just stay home. For what seems like the first time in forever, the kids played nicely together...except for the occasional incident. I would even go as far as to say that it was actually kind of relaxing! For whatever reason, the kids decided to play in the office most of the day. Sienna usually goes in there quite a bit to sit on the sofa to eat snacks and read books. It doesn't matter how many times I go into the office to check on her...I always think she looks too darn cute hanging out by herself on the sofa!

Here is Sienna eating her afternoon snack (grapes) in the office... Of course as soon as I came in to see what she was doing, she high-tailed it out of there!
Sienna also likes to run into the office when I'm trying to put her clothes on! Lately I've managed to get her to lay still long enough for a diaper change (for awhile I had to change her diaper while she was standing) but as soon as the diaper is on, she takes off running! Luckily she runs right into the office where she has nowhere to hide! ha!
As soon as I get her cornered in the office, she takes off running for the living room! It may take awhile, but I do finally get her clothes on!

Yesterday Brayden made Sienna tea (he loves to make frog and turtle tea/soup) which she decided to take into the office to drink. When I went in to check on her, it looked like she was trying to hide on the sofa!
I asked her if she was drinking her tea and she sat up and pretended to drink...too cute! I love the age when they start understanding what you are saying. Now if only she'd start talking to us more...using real words!
I really do think that the kids spent most of the day playing in the office. Well, that was until I had to lock Sienna out of the office for playing with the TV buttons. Sienna has really developed a love for books and she spends most of her day pointing at the pictures and telling us what she sees.
And occasionally she'll make some music with her drum!
