1st — I woke up at 5:15am this morning to John slamming the office door. He had a Barney show going on the tv. As I put him back to bed there was a Barney song running through my head. If that was the song that was playing when I got up, it was at least 20-25 minutes into the DVD.
3rd — John was watching the Spanish channel when I woke up.
4th — John tries and actually succeeds in lifting a 12 pack of Dr. Pepper.
5th — John put his pants on by himself for the first time, I just turned around and he had pants on!
6th — Lydia figured out how to rip up a kleenex and drink her bottle at the same time.
7th — Had to perform stealth diaper retrieval.
8th — Wondered if Lydia was fake sleeping… is that possible for an 8 ½ month old?
9th — Lydia finally cut that 5th tooth… a break before the 6th please?
— John wants his hand washed… they are mysteriously neon pink and I still don’t know the cause.
10th — Took the kids to Fazoli’s, John poured pepper onto his penne alfredo, and loved it!
11th — Lydia crawled!
12th — I passed my PRAXIS PLT
13th — I lost Lydia…. she was in the kitchen.
— John created hurricane-like effects in his room in about 2 minutes flat.
— Had a wonderful Valentine’s date with Aaron.
14th — John uses the wall instead of the white board for his coloring escapades.
15th — Lost Bobby.
— John pulled the mattress off the bed and then got stuck under it.
— Found Bobby.
20th — Nice weather. Took kids to the park. John took off running across a field and Lydia took off after him with her military crawling. Shew as pretty fast, but ended up covered in dead, brocken leaves.
21st — John tries to get into the exer-saucer… with Lydia already IN it.
22nd — Spent 2 1/2 hours in the ER with John. He did not want to stand on the scale, get his oxygen levels or temperature taken, and then pitched a fit when we were finally shown our room. Another hour later, when the doctor finally arrived, John seemed fine.
23rd — Put Lydia’s jacket on up-side-down, was in a hurry, so I left it that way.
— Home alone. Kids in bed. Hear a paper crackling type of noise coming from John’s room, but it sounds like its outside the door. (Freaked me out.) So, I look over and John’s pushing a piece of paper underneath the door. I go over and try to pull it from my end. Then I slip my fingers underneath and grab John’s fingers. He giggles, “Mommy.” So we talk a bit, through the door, before I bid him goodnight again.
24th — John put his BYU shoes on by himself, on the wrong feet.
— Aaron’s gone. Furnace starts acting up.
25th — John pulled out about 1/2 the wipes of a relatively full package.
— Lydia’s just really cute.
26th — Lydia unscrewed her bottle and was soaked from head to toe, as well as her bed. This was at nap time.
— No heat.
27th — Lydia pulled herself up!
28th — I killed Aaron’s fish this week… oops.
— John made a swimming pool in the kitchen with only a cup and running water.
