Over the Last Few Weeks....
Okay so it has been a while since I have posted. But man, have we been busy...
During the Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, we were all sick with a stomach bug. Seth got it first, bought it home to us--Thanks for sharing, baby! Then I got it and two days later Rob got it. Ughh....we all felt like we had been run over by trucks.
A couple of weekends ago, we put Seth down for his nap on Saturday. I sat down at the kitchen table to work on my grocery list. I could hear Seth settling down in his room--he always fights us with his naps on the weekends. All of sudden, I felt a presence at the gate that blocks Seth's room and the front bedroom from the den. I looked up and Seth was standing at the gate. "Hey Mommy!" is what he said. It was so hard for me not to laugh. I shrieked, "Seth Bright! What are you doing out of your crib?" So I scooped him up and carried him back in there. I threatened to take his poppy (paci) if he did that again. I also removed the pillow underneath his mattress, which I believe gave him his leverage. He has not climbed out since. I am not ready for his transition to the big boy bed yet.
So we got our seasonal weather, but now I am ready for SNOW. I want Seth to be able to experience snow. We had a chance of it a few weekends ago, but it turned out to be a fluke. People were really badmouthing the weathermen. I am not giving up hope on SNOW--we had our biggest snow I remember in March 1980--I was 9. What a wonderful childhood memory that is!
Rob and I were in the kitchen talking last weekend and he was saying something about reserving a Saturday to go over to his parents' to fellowship with his dad's family. He said several family members had birthdays and anniversaries during the month of February. Well, Seth strolls by and begins singing, "Happy Birthday to you......Happy Birthday to you......" I looked and Rob and said, "I didn't even know he knew how to sing." He is quite the chatterbox and copycat these days. We really have to watch what we say. Whoa Dude!
