Why I Love my Family

  1. I can goof off and they thing nothing less of me.
  2. I love to cook for Nate... and he loves to eat my cooking!
  3. Two words: Tobey kisses.
  4. The huge smile I get in the morning from Sean.
  5. Most Saturdays, Nate lets me SLEEP!
  6. Doggy and baby snuggles.
  7. The laugh Sean makes when he's playing with his daddy.
  8. All the help that my parents are so willing to offer.
  9. Singing Theme From A Wiener Dog Riding A Skateboard in the car with Nate to settle Sean down.
  10. They're MY family.
Theme From A Wiener Dog Riding A Skateboard has a 7 out of 10 success rate of calming Sean down.

Burnt Out

I am burnt out.
I'm just going to do a quick review of the past two weeks.

  • Sean decides he doesn't have enough toys out in his room.

(Full story in later post)

  • Nate hates his job right now and I don't blame him.
  • Sean's pink eye cleared up. (Yea!)
  • My friend Lacy came to visit Sean, Tobey and me one afternoon. :)
  • I get the stomach flu.
  • Sean turns 7 months!
  • Sean keeps pooping out his diapers.
  • Nate and I messed the Tony's because the tape didn't record! (*cries*)
  • I find out that Tobey sleeps really funny.

  • Sean is fussy from his tooth.
  • Sean is trying to cut a top tooth.
  • I'm going crazy; nothing new.
  • Sean gets a new toy.

(A play yard! So much fun!)


Sean had a tummy ache and teething pains yesterday, wouldn't stop screaming, wouldn't take a nap, finally settles down just in time to go get his shots! He slept well last night (we were at Grandma and Grandpas from baby sitting and we were traveling with them today), but woke up at 5am with poop leaking out of his diaper, running down his legs and between his tows, all over the porta-crib and then won't go back to sleep!
We traveled to Auntie Mary Jane's today to give her her retirement gift, stayed for about two-and-a-half hours, then turned around and came home... a six hour trip both ways. Sean is not happy! At least he's asleep.
And speaking of sleep, I'm going there now. Thank you for listing to me vent! :)

Two for Tooth

Well, that other tooth of Sean's is stubborn, but it finally cut through today! Again, just the tiniest tip is sticking out and Sean is not happy about it one little bit!
On a better note, Sean's pink eye is looking a lot better today. He's had two rounds of eye drops and already a lot of the puffiness is down and the whites are less red.

On a completely different note - I have no Idea how he got into what he did!
All four of us were in the front room; Nate was half reading, half watching a movie I was on the sofa with Tobey, half watching the movie, mostly keeping an eye on Sean who was crawling around on the floor. We have some arias barricaded off with boxes, the ironing board, a suit case, things of that nature that we already have and he can't climb over.
Sean starts crawling over toward Tobey, wanting to play and just babbling up a storm. As he gets closer to the sofa, I notice that Sean is making a chewing motion and something is in the corner of his mouth. I wipe it off and pick him, and there is a big, mussy glob of blue paper stuck to the roof of his mouth! What in the world?
I have no idea where he got that! I was keeping a fairly good eye on him and I don't even remember having any blue paper! Anyway, we got it out of his mouth and in the garbage with no harm done.
I think this kid is going to like surprising him parents...
