The days just got away from me this past week… Ray was out of town last weekend and was supposed to come home Tuesday evening… but his flight was delayed and his plane didn’t land until 1am… much later than expected!! That made for both a very long day and a very short night. Needless to say Wednesday was shot… we were all just too tired to do anything! Noah also celebrated his birthday at preschool this week, and I was happy to be there to enjoy his “big day” with him. He’s so happy to be back and we’re so happy that he really and truly loves going there.
A few years ago when Ray and I were in the market for new bed, we couldn’t quite agree on which size to get… at just over 6 feet tall, Ray is not exactly a small man and wanted a king size bed so that he would have enough room to move and be comfortable. I on the other hand, liked the comfy, coziness of the queen size bed we had, and didn’t want to lose that. In the end, we did get the king size bed… and boy am I happy that we did, because every day, in the early morning hours, two pairs of little feet come scurrying through the hall and crawl into our bed next to us…
Thankfully we’ve gotten past the stage that I talk about in this next Friday Flashback! I don’t believe Abby ever got into the biting phase, though she did like to chew on her own arm there for a while… what can I say… the girl likes to eat, and will eat almost anything… thankfully she never broke skin, all I ever saw on her arm were her own little tooth marks.
In this weeks Friday Flashback I talk about what it was like trying to leave the house with two kids… Noah was about 21 months old and Abby only 3 months old at the time. Thankfully leaving the house isn’t quite as much of a hassle now… though trying to leave the house with both a preschooler and toddler comes with a whole new routine and set of headaches!! =)
Oh my goodness, this next post had me laughing in remembrance after I just read it again. I knew that Noah was a late talker, but I had forgotten just how late of a talker her was… which makes me now feel better about Abby… our second shy talker… but I digress… I had forgotten about how little he spoke and what his first words were… or weren’t. I’m happy to say that in the 2 years following this post, Noah’s vocabulary has sky rocketed and he (and Abby too) both talk non-stop… no really, non-stop. His preschool teachers even mentioned that he has blossomed into quite the little talker over the past year!
It’s Friday again… why does it seem like the weeks just fly by? The kids and I have a few things planned for this morning before daddy comes home… but it’s all top secret!! ;) It’s going to get hot today and I have a feeling that the slip and slide and water toys will be coming out today once all of our errands are taken care of.
