1st – Been teaching John to say, “May I have some milk, please.” Instead of grunting and shoving his sippy cup in my face. Well, he wanted to watch his Curious George DVD so he said, “May I have some monkey, please.”
– Lydia stood in the middle of the room all by herself for the first time!
2nd – Aaron did an MRM booth, and we hung out as a family at the Midvale Cinco de Mayo festival.
3rd – Lydia took her first step! … in the nursery.
4th – Aaron I just about died from the gasseous stench coming from the grass clippings.
5th – I was leaving and John was on the porch, I could tell he was trying to tell me something so I rolled down my window. He came over to the car and gave me a kiss goodbye.
7th – Lydia said, “Bye daddy.”
11th – John hides Bobby from me so I won’t put him in the laundry.
12th – Curious George shows different ways of measuring, one of which is kids measuring other kids with a shoe. John came up to me with a shoe and started “measuring” me, counting, “one, two, three, four.”
13th – We have a shape sorter toy that makes lots of sounds that John has always loved (and always found a way for it to make the noise without him actually shorting the shapes) Anyhow, John stuck his hand in the circle and got it stuck, so I helped him get it out. Then he immediately proceeds to put his hand in all the shapes to see if it would fit.
14th – John had food on his plate, but was done. He brought it to me and I told him to put it on the table. Instead, he threw the food away and put the plate in the sink!
– John got into the syrup that I stupidishly left on the table.
16th – Lydia turned ONE!
18th – Trying to potty train John. Going potty every 20 minutes. Well, I didn’t realize he had pooped in his pullup. So, I pulled down his pants and got poop all over the toilet. So, I put John in the bathtub and he stepped in the poop (that didn’t make him happy). So, I clean up the toilet then clean up John and he leans forward lifting his leg in an attitude/arabesque type pose so that I could get the poop off his foot.
– John was stacking Lydia’s baby food jars in the check out line and as I went to grab them one crashed to the floor and broke.
20th – John gave duck a bath in the cooler.
23rd – On the way down to Zion John asked, “May I have window please? SUUUURE!” (Pronouncing sure with an “s”) He wanted his window down.
25th – The kids had been sleeping in the car but woke up. Lydia was crying so we were “SHHHHHH”-ing. John was trying to sleep and he turned from one side of his car seat to the other with his finger to his mouth and said, “shhhhhhhhhh”
27th – John yells, “BIG TRUCK” any time he sees anything from a pickup to a semi (or even buses). Imagine how many times I hear that in a 10 minute car ride!
28th – We cross a Trax (public transportion “train”) crossing, sometimes we have to stop. John was excited to see the train. After it passed John said, “Bye train!” and kept repeating it. I decided to not repeat him and see how long he would do it, for at least a minute he kept repeating “Bye train!” until with utter exasperation he said, “Mommy! Bye train!”
30th – John locked himself in the bathroom, presumably to play with the water uninterrupted.
31st – Apparently a nursery worker asked John if his shoes were purple and he said, “No, my shoes are blue.”
