What a Difference a Year Makes!



We have come a very long way. Here is a picture of Seth with Rob on the very first day of daycare last August. Here is also a picture of Seth with me this morning getting ready to go to his first day of toddler class. The reason he looks unhappy is because we have taken his pacifier and he is trying to watch the Wiggles as we take the picture. He is growing up way too fast!

My Last Week As a Four Eyes (For a While)


Wow...the countdown is on. In less than a week, I hope to be glassesless (is that a word?) and contact lensless. I am getting a little nervous. I have had surgery before, but not when I have my eyes open and can see what is going on. Oh well, the C-Section but I couldn't see what they were doing! I am excited to be able to see without the dependency of my glasses. It will probably be tough for a few days though because I have worn glasses since I was about 10 years old! It will be different being able to put on makeup and actually see what I am doing without the magnification mirror. I will be able to swim at the beach and actually see where our beach cottage is! I won't have to worry about getting water in my eyes like I do with contacts. I am looking so forward to being able to see with my renewed eyes!

Back to School :-(

In three more days my summer vacation will be over. CRY! BOO! HISS! I have enjoyed my vacation immensely this year. I feel that I have been most productive...okay not as productive as I could have been. Actually, I have been easing myself back into school since the middle of July. I have been attending some workshops and meetings that are leading up to the start of school. Getting up early will not be the difficult part for me--I have done that all summer long to get Seth off to school or to go to my mom's. Going to bed early will be the hardest, especially since I think the longer you stay up the slower the morning comes. SIGH...time just goes so fast when you are having fun.

Speaking of having fun, Seth used the potty last night. We have started sitting him on it before he gets in the tub, since he usually pees in the tub shortly after he is placed there. Last night, he did it in the potty. There was much rejoicing! I realize he probably won't do it again anytime soon, but this is a start! Oh my, the things we get excited about!

Tunnel Vision


Seth has taken a new interest in hide and seek so we decided to look into getting a tunnel for him. We ended up getting a tunnel and a tent so that he can hide out. Needless to say he loves it. He takes his race cars and zips them through the tunnel. He has built a few houses with his blocks in the tent. Of course, this contraption has taken over our den and I am again reminded how small our house is. Rob says he feels like the pack 'n' play is back in our den. Of course this is bigger than the pack 'n' play. Luckily, it packs up easily and can be put in the other room quickly if company comes or if a time out is needed.
