Please Help!

This morning Alegria found a tape dispenser in the desk drawer...and tied the tape around her wrist!

And if that wasn't enough mischief, check this out!

On a more low-key level, Alegria then inspected a vase and flowers:

She loved the heart decoration in the vase and decided to keep it for herself:

What long eyelashes!

Later on, she used her walker to climb up onto a side table in our living room. She loved looking at pictures of family on that table and would even point to Daddy, Mommy, Grandma, and Grandpa!

Pointing to Mommy:

Signing "Mommy:"

Pointing to Grandpa:

She actually learned how to sign "Mommy" and "Daddy" very recently. Now we're working on signing "Grandma" and "Grandpa" but she still doesn't have those two down yet...maybe because they're too similar to "Mommy" and "Daddy." It took her a while to make "more" and "cracker" distinctly different signs, so we'll see how long "Grandma" and "Grandpa" take!

I tried video-taping Alegria signing "Mommy" and "Daddy," but she got distracted with the chess set and preferred to climb on the table and play with the chess pieces:

A little before 7, Abilehi showed up. We had asked her if she could please watch Alegria while Cameron and I went out to dinner and she had very nicely agreed, so Cameron and I headed out and left her having a rotini dinner with Alegria.

Cameron and I went to an Italian restaurant in town called Bella Sera. It's a very nice restaurant, and let me tell you, the service there was a lot faster than the KFC fast food we got last night! The waitress was very nice and we had our food in a flash...and it was SOOO good! The servings were very large! I had to box up most of my chicken parmesan and Cameron had to get a to-go box, too.

Well, we had left home at about 7:10...and we were done with dinner by about 7:45! Since it was still early, Cameron and I headed to the Copperas Cove Mall (Wal-Mart) to buy some lamps for our nightstands. Then we headed home.

We called ahead and asked Abilehi to please keep Alegria up so that Daddy could put her to bed. When we got home, Alegria was all bathed and ready for bed.

Once Alegria was in bed, Abilehi, Cameron and I worked together to move our king size bed so that Cameron could reach the outlet behind our bed to plug the new lamps in.

There was an incident and a floating head was what was left:

Just kidding! No incident! Just a floating head! :)

And that was our night. It was so great to go on a dinner date with Cameron! How awesome to have Abilehi living nearby to help us out with Alegria like that! Thanks again, Abilehi!!! :)

And good night to all! :)
