I just want to write

because I'm kind of bored right now. Could I wash the dishes? Sure. But my legs are tired.

Took all the boys to the lake yesterday with Brian and it was pretty fun. Both of the little boys wanted to be pretty independent, which resulted in them dunking themselves and us saving their lives multiple times. It totally didn't phase them at all though! And C actually stood up in water that was deeper than his waist, which was an accomplishment in and of itself. At the pool he refuses to leave the stairs without MUCH screaming and carrying on, while his little brother walks in water up to his neck with no fear at all.

I think C is learning to speak French. When he goes poo he says "Je poo-poooooo" and it sounds like a different language. It's quite hilarious. I get the poo poooooo part, but not sure what the Je is supposed to mean. Also yesterday he was playing with our dog's Kong Wubba and pretending it was a baby (google it to see what those look like). He was all "Sit down, baby!" "Get in the car, baby!" It was super cute.

Y (the baby) has been waking up in the middle of the night and in the middle of his naps SCREAMING. It's almost like "I had a nightmare" screaming. Do babies have nightmares? I have no idea. It's slightly disconcerting. He has been refusing his bottle or drinking maybe an ounce or less before naps/bed and then all he wants his is his pacifier and to get in his bed. So maybe he is waking up because he is hungry? Not real sure what to do about it. Last night he woke up at 11:30, and the nights before that he was waking up at 5 a.m. or shortly after. All of these times I was able to get him to go back to sleep after giving him a bottle. The past two days he woke up in the middle of his afternoon nap but I was able to get him to go back to sleep. So yes, more learning is going on on my part! It's really difficult to just let him cry it out at these times he wakes up because everyone else in the house (or at least his big brother) is sleeping. If C wakes up early or wakes up from his nap too soon he generally has a pretty bad day that day and we all want to avoid that if at all possible.

The boys are going to respite this weekend from Friday until Sunday. I have some gardening to do and depending on how quickly my tomatoes get ripe I may make some salsa or something else. I have lots of onions and hot peppers to use! Hot peppers are growing prolifically, while the bell peppers (which I LOVE) are doing very poorly. The plants look great, just not a lot of peppers on them. :( I think so far I have about 3 or 4. I'm hoping for more before frost comes! I am also going to start some broccoli seeds indoors and hope for a fall harvest. I MAY also get some garlic cloves to plant. This will be my first experience with home grown garlic. We use it an awful lot and though it's not terribly expensive how fun would it be to just grow our own!? :) Oh and I may paint D's room. We'll see though. :)


  1. I don't know if babies actually have nightmares but you used to have night terrors (that's what we called them) where you would just wake up screaming like someone was murdering you. I never did get what caused that...
