Wendy had her first …

ear infection! Monday night, she went to sleep without complaining.  Tuesday morning, she woke up and seemed happy enough.  Then, she bonked herself on a wall and started complaining that her ear hurt.  I assumed she meant the ear piercing, but it didn’t look red or infected.  Her complaints quickly escalated into non-stop tears...

How Did I Miss This?

Wednesday May 7, 2008

On Tuesday, I was overseeing a playdate between Sam and a friend. We were playing outside for a while when my neighbor came out. He asked me if I had heard anything, like a “boom” or felt anything. I replied that I hadn’t noticed anything. We chatted about it for a minute. We live...

Baby soothers

Wendy took a pacifier. Sam took nothing. I’ve been curious to see what what Adam will do to soothe himself. Often times, he will go to sleep with no soothie needed. Occasionally, especially when he was newer, he would go to sleep sucking on a pacifier. However, more and more, he’s been finding his...

“Funham”: a whole lot of fun and mayhem all mixed together. (I just made that up). We just had a great 10 days with the “Montana Cousins.” The MT Cousins, formerly the San Diego cousins. We used to fly out yearly to visit them in Cali, but then they moved to Montana and I...

Silence is golden

Do you hear that? It’s the sound of a baby sweetly napping. It’s also the sound of the dog not whining. And the older kids not fighting. Not asking for snacks. Not arguing over which video to watch. Not complaining about what’s being served for dinner (I could go on, but I’ll stop). Why...

This morning I witnessed the sweetest moment between siblings.  I was trying to get everyone (myself included) ready so we could get out the door.  It was also “picture day”, which meant Wendy had a cute dress to put on.  She came into my bathroom, looking for help to zip up her dress.  I...

Front Yard Fun

We planted a bunch of daffodils and tulips last fall. And for while, every neighbors’ bulbs were coming up, but ours. But finally ours have bloomed and it’s such a lovely sight! While Mike was hard at work weeding, I snapped some pics of the kids. And I think I got some good ones,...

For Mom’s Everywhere!

I got to attend the MOPS Annual Conference last September and had a great time. One of the highlights was being introduced to a Christian kid/adult-friendly band called Go Fish. Their tagline is “Great music for kids that won’t drive parents bonkers.” And it’s true – I really enjoy the sound of their music,...

It’s a dog’s life

Poor Logan doesn’t get much love these days. Or if he does, it’s probably not the way he’d like to receive it. He doesn’t like it when the kids shout at him or man-handle (kid-handle?) him, but he tolerates them pretty well. And he does love to snuggle on the couch, or curl up...

Sleep … Glorious Sleep!

Ha… I see when I entered my title that I’ve used that line before.  I guess when you have a newborn, anytime you get a few unbroken hours of sleep, it’s glorious. I am pleased to report that Adam slept for TEN whole hours last night!  8pm to 6pm — woo hoo! I can...
